(1:16 pm EST) -- LEGOLAND Florida Resort in Winter Haven just announced its biggest investment since the park's opening: THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD.

The new area will look and feel like Bricksburg, Emmet's hometown in "THE LEGO MOVIE." It will feature three rides, a giant themed playscape, and character meet and greets.

THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD is expected to debut in 2019.

A new submarine ride at LEGOLAND California Resort will debut this summer.
