    Buddys Character Corner

     Today LEGOLAND ® Florida Resort introduced a new unique and interactive way for guests to meet and mingle with their favorite LEGO ® characters, titled Buddy’s Character Corner! Based in the historic Magnolia Mansion inside the Fun Town section of LEGOLAND Florida Resort, families visiting now have the opportunity to interact and take pictures with fan-favorites Buddy, Max, the LEGO Friends and even Emmet from The LEGO® Movie, all inside the comfort of air conditioning.

    “We are excited to finally unveil this unique experience to our fans,” said LEGOLAND Florida Resort Product Excellence Manager Phil Royle. “This gives us another way for our guests to interact with the characters here at the Park, adding to our already exciting 50 rides, shows and attractions and LEGOLAND Water Park.”

    The experience starts as visitors enter the Magnolia Mansion, being welcomed by various characters and LEGO theming. Children and parents will then have the opportunity to take their own photos or purchase an exclusive photo with their favorite character, with unique backgrounds to choose from. The backgrounds scenes include parts from The LEGO Movie, LEGOLAND Florida Resort, LEGO Friends and various LEGO Backgrounds. Other character meet and greet opportunities still take place throughout the park.

    The Magnolia Mansion, originally opened in 1941 and part of Cypress Gardens in various forms throughout the later 1900s, was restored in preparation of the new experience. Previously used for LEGOLAND meetings, the addition of Buddy’s Character Corner adds to attractions found under cover, and in air conditioning.

    The announcement comes after the Resort released information on bookings for the LEGOLAND Hotel. Opening Summer 2015, the five story LEGO® themed hotel will feature 152 brightly colored and highly themed rooms and suites, thousands of LEGO models and interactive play areas! The addition of the Hotel gives guests the opportunity to extend their stay and explore LEGOLAND Florida Resort for more than one day giving them the ultimate family experience.
