LEGOLAND California Holiday Snow Days

Winter has come to San Diego … well, to LEGOLAND California at least!

No matter what the weather is, a winter wonderland has taken over the park’s Fun Town. Kids can have fun sliding down a 7-foot tall snow-covered inner tube run. Then they can throw snowballs at LEGO® themed targets and build snowmen using LEGO® accessories in the snow-play area. Grab some delicious treats at the Holiday Food Truck including hot chocolate, warm spiced apple cider, churros, holiday cookies, Bratwurst and Knockwurst baguettes, and buttery mash potatoes.

Capture some memories in front of the 30-foot tall Christmas tree that is created out of more than 245,000 forest green DUPLO® bricks and is adorned with more than 400 LEGO ornaments. On December 1, Santa, actress Sarah Michelle Gellar and musical guest Ben Harper will help light the LEGO Christmas tree for the 12th annual Tree Lighting Ceremony. One lucky kid will be picked each night through LEGOLAND California Resort’s Facebook Page to light the LEGO Christmas tree December 4-24.

The outdoor ice skating rink located in front of the LEGOLAND ticket booths and the LEGOLAND Hotel is new to the resort this year. Skaters must be ages 3+ and able to walk unassisted. Tickets are sold separately from the park passes and includes ice skate rental and helmets, if needed. You can even rent a “Bobby the Seal” ice skating aid.

Also new this year, s’more kits are for sale at LEGOLAND Hotel’s Mini’s Lounge. You can roast your s’mores over fire pits while watching everyone ice skate.

There is lots of holiday entertainment including live music featuring LEGO Friends Live, Jingle Jammers, the Big Test Holiday show and the Holiday Character Dance Party. Don’t forget to check out Miniland U.S.A which is decorated for the season. Every evening December 26-31 at 7pm get a perfect view of the holiday firework display from Fun Town.

LEGOLAND California Holiday Snow Days runs through January 4, 2015. Park hours will be extended for the winter holiday during these dates: Nov. 28, 29, 30, Dec. 6, 13, 20-23 and 26-31. For more information and tickets go to or call (760) 918-LEGO (5346).

Bring Maleficent home on Disney Blu-ray combo pack

Walt Disney Pictures

I really love Disney’s Maleficent (click here to read my full review). While staying close to the animated movie Sleeping Beauty, Maleficent does change the story a bit to show the damage greed can do to love, friendship and one’s own physical well being. It presents how true love isn’t always between a man and […]
