1. Brick or Treat Trail

Let's face it: Candy is the most essential ingredient when you're building a satisfying Halloween season. Fortunately, kids 12 and under can get their fill of it — and then some — on the LEGO-themed Brick or Treat Trail, which features multiple stops throughout the park. Children are welcome to wear costumes without masks, but disguises aren't required to share in this bounty.

One more thing: While the Brick or Treat Trail is available to all park-goers from 3-7 p.m. during event days, LEGOLAND annual passholders get access an hour early. Talk about a sweet deal!

2. Halloween-Themed LEGO Models & Building

It's not LEGO without models, and Brick or Treat will have plenty of them — both to see and build! For instance, this event is the only place where you can witness the world's largest LEGO pumpkin, and other cool models like a LEGO hearse will also be on hand.

What's more, all kids will get the chance to create a LEGO spider at Brick or Treat. It's one of many building activities children can enjoy when they visit LEGOLAND Florida.

3. Scare-Free Shows

If you like live entertainment with your Halloween fun, you're in for a trick-free treat at LEGOLAND Florida's Brick or Treat. First up is The Groovin' Graveyard, a happily haunted musical concert that's guaranteed to rock the block(s).

You can also sing along with the LEGO Jack-o'-Lantern Trio for The Candy-Coated Curse, a brand-new, live-action show on the LEGO City Stage. And through it all, LEGO Spider Lady will weave some wild webs of wonder at LEGO Kingdoms. However, The Groovin' Graveyard and The Candy-Coated Curse will not be available on Oct. 31.

4. Cool Character Appearances

As shown by the blockbuster success of LEGO-themed movies and video games, kids love LEGO characters, and they can encounter some of the wildest exclusively at this event. In addition to LEGO Spider Lady, not-so-spooky characters available for meet-and-greets are set to include LEGO Mummy, LEGO Frankenstein, LEGO Mad Scientist and LEGO Witch.

Plus, all LEGO Halloween characters are designed to be fun rather than fearsome, so even your littlest ones shouldn't mind posing for photos with this creepy crew.

5. Halloween Dining & Shopping

Not enough sweets for you on the Brick or Treat Trail? No worries — LEGOLAND Florida has brewed up a bevy of seasonal treats, including pumpkin-spice Apple Fries, "dirt cups," spooky trail mix and more.

Furthermore, LEGOLAND Florida will have exclusive merchandise you can only get during the Halloween season. For example, remember how kids love LEGO characters? Now they can become one with a visit to the Be-a-Minifigure Costume Shop, which will offer more than 20 different costumes for a limited time!

6. Fireworks — With Pirates!

Avast, ye hearties! Pirates make for great Halloween costumes, but at LEGOLAND Florida, they make for even better fireworks spectaculars. Be sure to grab a pair of special viewing glasses before The Tale of Pirates' Cove Fireworks Finale sets sail at the close of each Brick or Treat day — otherwise, you'll miss out on exploding bricks and other LEGO-themed surprises in the evening sky. Also, keep in mind that the fireworks show will not be presented on Oct. 31.
