Disclosure: I was provided tickets attend the media event. I was not compensated in any other way. All opinions are 100% mine.
I have to admit a Ford Mustang has always been my dream car every since I was able to drive at 16. I was thrilled when I bought my first one at the age of 21 and felt so cool being able to own one myself. It was a beautiful 1999 silver hardtop Ford Mustang and I felt amazing driving that baby! Those days are long gone now that I drive a mini van haha!
When we were able to attend the unveiling of BrickPony as he/she is called in Winter Haven, Florida at LEGOLAND this past weekend I was thrilled!
This was such a fun event and they even let the kids help. All the kids at the event got to release the debut of LEGOLAND newest LEGO creation Brickpony. They loved being part of the action!
The new display of the life size Ford Mustang is front and center in the front of the Ford Driving School attraction and will replace the life size LEGO Ford Explorer.

After we spent some time checking out Brickpony the Mustang we headed over to let the kids do some driving of their own in the Ford Driving School.
This is my kids all time favorite ride at LEGOLAND. They have it set up so cute like a little town for the kids to drive around in.
They do have a Ford Jr. driving school for the younger kiddos.
My favorite place in LEGOLAND is MINILAND USA. A whole section of the park dedicated to replica cities, including California, Las Vegas, Washington DC and of course the Daytona Speedway. MINILAND USA alone contains over 32 million LEGO bricks!
The LEGOLAND hotel is now open too! It is literally steps from the entrance of the gates to get into the park. Next time we are going to have to stay the night, their rooms are themed with all sorts of different LEGO friends that I know my kids would love.
