Holiday Snow Days at LEGOLAND®!
Holiday Snow Days and Winter Nights is a yearly event at LEGOLAND® California. We’ve had a great time visiting the Resort this season as both pass holders, and by invitation from LEGOLAND®. Holiday Snow Days activities include snow play and snow tubing in a fun and festive environment. All of the activities that are part of the event are included with Park admission.
Snow tubing is done in an orderly environment, with attendants at the top and bottom of the hill to help participants. Snow tubes are provided, and adults are free to glide down the hill as well! It’s a pretty fast slide, but I have yet to see anyone scared or not want to go again!
The snow area has fun giant LEGO® shaped bricks for building, a small sledding area for the littles, playful accessories to put on a snowman you get to create, and opportunities to throw snowballs!
Just as you would expect with LEGOLAND®, the Resort is decked out with fun holiday LEGO® displays. The main Holiday Snow Days and Winter Nights festivities take part in Fun Town, next to the LEGO® Clubhouse. There are lots of festive photo opportunities, some of which are with characters such as LEGO® Santa!
Aside from the snow activities, you’ll want to check out the performers, including a juggler, stilt walker, and unicyclist. Also, be sure to take a pic in the LEGO® sleigh! Grandpa is pictured here with the kids. (He loved joining us one afternoon!)
Our kids LOVE all the season decor. There are two LEGO® reindeer near the sleigh that are worth stopping by to snap a picture. How many opportunities do you have to see one of these?!?
Some of the seasonal food during Holiday Snow Days and Winter Nights is bratwurst with mashed potatoes and sauerkraut, churros with chocolate or strawberry dipping sauce, and warm soft pretzels. We sampled each, and they were delicious! We also spied rice treats (pictured below, in the photo with the LEGO® ornament), which we plan to taste on our next visit.
We found this LEGO® shaped chocolate at The Market, located near the entrance and exit of the Park. It would be super cool if Santa dropped some of these in our stockings. (Hint, hint, Saint Nick!)
Winter Nights at LEGOLAND
Winter Nights include the same fun daytime activities, plus longer Park hours, strolling carolers, Holiday Lights Show, nightly fireworks 12/26-12/31. Our kids love seeing the “snow” (bubbles) fall at night! I’ll never forget the look on our baby’s face when he first saw the “snow” dropping down on him, and watching him try to catch it!
Some of the employees are really in the holiday spirit, wearing fun and festive things like this hat! We found this gentleman working inside The Big Shop. He actually made it himself!
Among the many days we’ve gone to LEGOLAND this season, we attended the day of the official lighting of the LEGO® Christmas tree. I HIGHLY suggest you stay late enough to see the nightly tree lighting. The tree is beautiful after dark!
Festivity At The LEGOLAND® Hotel
The LEGOLAND® Hotel is all decked out for the holidays as well. Some of the incredible decorations include a giant LEGO®-style tree in the lobby, LEGO® wreaths, and little details throughout the hotel such as LEGO® poinsettias.
