Every October, LEGOLAND Florida Resort dusts off its stockpile of jack-o'-lanterns and cauldrons for its annual Brick-or-Treat event. This tadpole-friendly celebration is filled with sinfully delicious sweets, monstrous meet-and-greets, spooktacular shows and frogtastic fireworks. It's also the perfect way for the whole family to get into the Halloween spirit!
Overview of LEGOLAND Florida Brick-or-Treat
We attended with our little goblins opening weekend this year and were hoppily surprised at how much there was to see and do. Tad and Lily had so much fun brick-or-treating throughout the park's various neighborhoods in their carefully curated costumes (and Leap and I had the shows' catchy songs in our heads all day)!
This year, Brick-or-Treat is back and better than ever with its inaugural Monster Party, a spooktacular event that includes an all-new show lineup, never-before-seen exclusive LEGO characters and so much more.

LEGOLAND Florida Brick-or-Treat Costume Information
Your little tadpoles are encouraged to arrive decked out in their Halloween best. We loved seeing all the fun and creative costumes fellow froggies had dressed up in and got a kick out of how many families arrived in ghoulishly great group costumes. (Yes, parents, you're more than welcome to join in on the fangtastic fun and don a costume, as well.) We're incredibly hoppy to hear that, this year, there will even be a costume parade! Stay tuned for more details.
This year, there's even a costume parade! Be sure to arrive in your spookiest costume and head over to Miniland, USA by 4 p.m. Monsters are taking over LEGOLAND, and the crew needs your help to welcome them in with a parade! Do you think your costume will pass the monster test?
Trick-or-Treating at LEGOLAND Florida Brick-or-Treat
Starting at 1 p.m., Model Citizens began handing out candy at seven different uniquely themed trick-or-treating stations around the park. Tadpoles were welcome to grab a free bag and walk up to the candy cauldron. (Of course, we made sure Lily and Tad didn't froget to say "Brick or Treat!") Our stash was full in no time! We stocked up on sweets at:
- Monster Checkpoint Candy outside of Pepper & Roni’s Pizza Stop (1-5:30 p.m.)
- Rock This Way Treats in Fun Town (1-6 p.m.)
- Happy Harvest Candy Patch in DUPLO Valley (1:30-5:30 p.m.)

LEGOLAND Florida Brick-or-Treat Tips
1. Be Wary of the Weather
Whatever costume you and your tadpole choose, keep it nice and light. It still gets into the high 80s and low 90s in October in Florida and the last thing any of us want is a hot and fussy tadpole!
2. Check Times Before You Arrive
Many of the showtimes overlap throughout the day. It's definitely possible to see them all but if that's your goal, you need to have a game plan that maps out what you're going to see when. Be sure to check out the character interactions, brick-or-treat stations and activities near each show so you're not hopping back and forth around the park all day.
As for the activities, each only runs for a certain amount of hours each day. Knowing when each activity is taking place and when to be there by will help to avoid meltdowns so your tadpole doesn't accidentally miss out on a certain build or game they wanted to take part in.
3. Know Your Tadpole's Limits
Fireworks take place at 8 p.m. each night. If your tadpoles want to catch the nighttime spectacular but you know they won't be able to make it from park open to park close, don't arrive as soon as the gates open. Manage your little one's expectations and talk to them about whether they'd rather attempt to hit up everything the event has to offer during the day or see the sky light up at night. The park is big and temperatures can get hot. Don't feel forced to overdo it.
