If you are looking for something fun to do in Orlando when the weather isn’t cooperating, chances are you’ve thought about going to a movie. This weekend regardless of the weather, a movie and a theme park are in order. “The Lego Movie” will be released tomorrow and it should do very well at the theaters. After all, who hasn’t enjoyed playing with Legos and imagined them full of character?

In celebration of the movie’s release, Legoland Florida is holding a movie-themed weekend event. This Saturday and Sunday, February 8 & 9, 2014, special activities will take place. They include:

  • “The Lego Movie” Scavenger Hunt held at Miniland USA
    Help save the day by finding Emmet, Wyldstyle, Lord Business and MetalBeard (movie characters) who are lost in Miniland USA. Prizes will be awarded for entries received.
  • “The Lego Movie” Video Game Challenge at theWarner Bros. Games Zone
    Play the latest video game based on the movie and test your gaming skills.
  • Build Your Own World Competition – Imagination Zone
    Use your imagination to build your own Lego model. A winner from each event day will be selected to receive a Lego prize pack.
  • “The Lego Movie” Mural Build – Imagination Zone
    Help create a giant Lego poster of “The Lego Movie.”
  • Character Meet & Greets – Lego City
    Emmet and Wyldstyle stars of “The Lego Movie,” will be on the red carpet greeting fans.

The cost of this event at Legoland Florida is included in your Orlando theme park ticket. The entire family will enjoy a day at this attraction. For tickets or more information, go to legoland.com.

As for the movie, watch the official trailer (below). It looks very funny to me. Special appearances by several stars and characters throughout the movie keep it fun, fresh and entertaining. Who wouldn’t love a singing batman? Reviews have stated that it is entertainment that the whole family will enjoy. The Lego Movie is rated PG and will be shown at regular theaters as well as in 3D.

This weekend, why not go to the movies on Friday or Saturday, then experience “The Lego Movie” in real life with more Legos than you could ever imagine by attending Legoland? Sounds like a great plan, regardless of the weather!

To make it a perfect weekend… The evening you are not at Legoland or watching the new Lego movie, enjoy a family night out at Capone’s Dinner & Show. The characters at this joint sing, dance, tell jokes and are as entertaining as any “brick” you’ll meet! This Orlando dinner show is a fun thing to do any day of the week and in any kind of weather. Save a night for Capone’s and have a perfect weekend!
