Grab all of the best LEGOLAND Florida Brick or Treat Tips for Families – so you can grab all of the candy, enjoy all of the events and of course, make the spookiest memories!
What to Bring to Brick or Treat
Some of the most asked questions I get about Florida theme park special events is about what to bring. You won’t need much for this amazing event! Here’s my list of must-haves for these Brick or Treat tips:
- Best kid-friendly costumes, keeping in mind of the hot Florida weather!
- Extra clothes
- Bathing suits and towels (if you plan on going to the water park)
- Rain gear – in case of a usual Florida thunderstorm! Many of the Brick or Treat activities take place outside
- Camera/Phone – for lots of pictures!
Experience at Least One Brick or Treat Character Meet & Greet
LEGOLAND Florida Brick or Treat offers a ton of exclusive Halloween themed character experiences during the event – making it possible to see your spooky favorites! Plan to see at least one of these character meet and greets during your visit. Best Tip: keep an eye on the lines. If they’re too long at the beginning of the 30 minute time block, come back towards the end for shorter wait times!

See the NEW A Candy-Coated Curse Live Show
There’s a new 15 minute stage show over in LEGO City! Kids of all ages will love helping to solve the mystery as characters dance, sing and chant their way through the show. Best Tip: Get there early. Since this is a new show offering for Brick or Treat, it’s expected to be popular! Stay to the end of the show for a sweet treat for kids too! Head to LEGO City afterwards for the fun rides or head over to the water park to cool off!
- Show times: 1:45, 3:30, 5:45
Find All of the Candy at the Miniland USA Candy Scavenger Hunt
Pick up your scavenger hunt form outside of Studio Store and head to Miniland USA for this fun kid-friendly scavenger hunt! Be on the lookout for special “candy corn” LEGO signs throughout the area and write down how many you find. LEGOLAND Florida has always hidden a bunch of cool Halloween themed LEGO set ups throughout Miniland too. (Georgetown is my favorite!)
No matter how many you find, don’t forget to turn it in at the end of the day for an exclusive LEGO souvenir! Best Tip: What’s great about this scavenger hunt is that you’re not locked down to a time crunch. So do this at your leisure, in between all of the other exclusive Brick or Treat timed events.
Walk the Brick or Treat Trail for Sweets!
Kids 12 years and under can take a walk through the Brick or Treat Trail between 3-7 pm to grab lots of tasty sweets at little booths. Keep in mind that some of the folks passing out candy have some ghoulish face paintings and creepy booths – so little ones may want to hold a hand while they walk. Best Tip: Your kids will receive free bags to collect their treats. No need to bring one!
- What treats to expect: Honest Juice Boxes, KIND Kids Chewy Honey Oat Bars, GoGo Squeez Yogurtz, Kettle Potato Chips, Airheads, Twizzlers, Lollipops, Jolly Ranchers, Swedish Fish, Starburst, Smarties, Sixlets, M&Ms (what we received. Candy may vary depending on the night.)
- Allergies: Kids with sensitivities to chocolate, dairy, soy and nuts be advised
Ride the Rides
It wouldn’t be a LEGOLAND Florida day without the rides! Take advantage of all of the fun family rides open during Brick or Treat, especially since park hours extend to 8 pm! Best Tip: With so much to explore during Brick or Treat, I would definitely recommend keeping the wait times short! Come back later if your favorite ride is too long.
Add the Water Park on Hot Florida Days!
It’s October and still over 90 degrees. Hello fall in Florida! What’s great about Brick or Treat is that the LEGOLAND Florida Water Park is also open during the events (closes at 5 pm daily). So you can easily add on the water park option to your ticket…because we know how hot those costumes can get! Best Tip: Let your kids wear their bathing suits under their costumes – less complaints knowing they will be cooling off soon!
Take That Priceless Photo at Exclusive Brick or Treat Model Ops
Love those memorable LEGOLAND Florida photos? Don’t forget to take that priceless family photo at one of the exclusive Brick or Treat model photo ops, including the world’s largest LEGO pumpkin! Best Tip: both of these photo ops are better at night, when they glow! Go just around sunset for the best possible lighting!

- LEGO Hearse by Merlin’s Challenge in LEGO Kingdoms
Dance the Night Away at Monster Bash
Does your child love to dance? Be sure to head over to the Monster Bash dance party for music, lights, bubbles and “monster friends!” This is a continuous dance party from 5-7:30 (LEGO characters will rotate) – a perfect boo-gie break for your little ones! Best Tip: If you go towards the end of the dance party (before 7 pm), you can head next door to Pirate’s Cove to grab your free 3D fireworks glasses.
Stay for Brick or Treat Fireworks
And why do we need those fireworks glasses? So you can end your LEGOLAND Florida Brick or Treat weekend with a bang! Head over to Pirate’s Cove to watch the sky light up during this 7 minute show, The Tale of Pirates’ Cove – a Fireworks Spectacular! Best Tip: Head over to Pirate’s Cove by 7 pm to grab a pair of exclusive 3D fireworks glasses to see the fireworks in the best “LEGO” lighting!
Catch the Jammin’ Jack-O’-Lanterns Before You Go
Music fills the air with these LEGO Jack O’ Lanterns! Be sure to catch them before you head home as they will be singing some spooky tunes as you leave. Best Tip: They will be singing from 7 – park closing. Definitely catch a photo and video as these pumpkins glow in the dark while they sing!
