LEGOLAND® Florida's official charitable organization is Merlin's Magic Wand.
About our Charity
Merlin Entertainments, plc and LEGOLAND Florida Resort supports the charity efforts of Merlin's Magic Wand Foundation which puts the magic back into the childhoods of seriously ill, disabled and disadvantaged children.
Merlin's Magic Wand ensures that these children can enjoy a magical day with their family by providing tickets to one of the many Merlin Entertainments attractions across the world. Find out more about our locations.
They have helped thousands of children and their families by providing tickets and financial support in the form of travel grants.
More than that, where children are too sick to visit us Merlin's Magic Wand are also developing a number of exciting Taking the Magic to the Children projects, ranging from sensory rooms to specially adapted playgrounds in local hospices and hospitals close to our attractions.
LEGOLAND Florida Resort is a proud supporter of the Sunshine Foundation's Dream Village locally. Learn more.
