LEGO® Imagination Center at Downtown Disney® Marketplace

When we visited the Downtown Disney Marketplace in May, the LEGO® Imagination Center was high on my list of places to visit. My boys have loved building LEGO® creations for years and I had to see the famed Sea Serpent for myself.

I had no idea that the store that caters to the public’s love of interlocking blocks had undergone a major renovation and had recently reopened. That could explain the crowd, but somehow with the ‘build your own race car station’ in front of the store and the ‘design your own LEGO® set computer station’ inside, I’m more inclined to think that there is never a dull moment at the LEGO® Imagination Center.

You don’t even have to be a fan of LEGO® to be impressed. The stunning sculptures outside the store make it clear that you really can build anything that you can dream of with LEGO® bricks.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs has always been one of my favorite Disney movies so it’s only natural that I’d be impressed with this statue:

While my boys loved seeing Woody fly away with Buzz…

Or Prince Philip slaying Maleficent, the Villain in Sleeping Beauty.

I can only guess how many LEGO bricks were used to create these amazing creations. Keep in mind that my son is nearly 6’ 5” and you’ll see that this is no tiny Buzz.

And if Buzz is nearby, you know you’ll find Woody too.

Can’t wait to visit? You’ll find the LEGO® Imagination Center at the Downtown Disney® Marketplace

It’s well worth the stop!


  1. Great pictures! I have pictures of Ian (and Gracie) with the Woody and Buzz statues too.  My kids would love to spend a whole day hanging out in that store!  I always get impatient though.  LOL

  2. ooooooo.......We want!!!

  3. Cool, we were there last May, 2010, and it has changed alot since then! Can't wait to see it this winter!

  4. I have no desire to spend a day hanging out in the store. LOL It was so
    busy, crowded, noisy and chaotic that I wondered if it's a requirement for
    the employees to be on Valium or whatever the new happy pill is. :) Of
    course we were there shortly after it opened....maybe we were just there on
    an extra busy day. Still, it's fun to see and everyone really should
    experience it at least once.

  5. Hey, do you plan to visit the new Legoland while you're in the area? I think
    it's scheduled to open in October. I can't wait to go there!


I love hearing what you think! Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! Blessings!:)
