No, Disney doesn’t own Lego. Lego is a part of The Lego Group, which is owned by Kirkbi – a holding company designed to be the parent company for The Lego Group which now owns multiple entities.
Does Disney Own Legoland?
No, despite both having theme parks in Orlando Disney doesn’t have any ownership in Legoland (it doesn’t own near by Universal Studios either).
Legoland actually has an interesting backstory. It was owned outright by Lego until 2004. In need of cash, Lego sold a majority stake in the parks to The Blackstone Group. They had a subsidiary called Merlin Entertainment which Legoland rolled into. As Lego gained in popularity and their financial situation changed, they eventually bought all of Merlin Entertainment to bring Legoland back into the fold with The Lego Group. Regardless: Disney never owned a stake in Lego or Legoland.
