Holiday Characters

During your visit to Legoland California, you can meet holiday LEGO characters like Santa, the Toy Soldier, and Gingerbread Man for holiday hugs, pictures, and selfies.

During our visit, we were able to take pictures with LEGO Santa at Fun Town just below the LEGO Christmas Tree.


Head over to Fun Town where there’s a 30-foot, fully decorated, LEGO® Christmas tree with over 400 LEGO ornaments. And as the day winds down, the tree gets a-twinklin’ to holiday tunes at the Holiday Light Show featuring falling “snow”. 

LEGO Sleigh and Reindeer

Behind the LEGO Christmas Tree, you can hop on a sleigh with a life-size LEGO Santa that’s pulled by his trusted reindeer, also made of LEGO.

I was going to take pictures of the girls on the sleigh when they hopped on the reindeer, luckily it didn’t break!

Legoland Holiday Shopping

Before leaving the theme park, I recommend visiting The BIG Shop for Christmas gift shopping at Legoland. From LEGO sets to the gingerbread man bubble wand which is a really cute stocking stuffer.
