This Spring Break brought an extraordinary experience for my family. We love to share places, locations, events that are all about family fun, and we were really excited when we were invited to get a sneak peak of the new Legoland Hotel.
We had seen many commercials about the property, besides seeing it under construction last year when we visited Legoland. And I must say, the new Legoland Hotel – it was certainly exceeded our expectations.
Built with kids ages 2-12 in mind, this three-story, 250 room hotel makes children’s imaginations a reality. Who wouldn’t love sleeping in a castle a pirate ship or the land of adventure? My kids couldn’t contain their excitement once they stepped foot inside the hotel. One of my favorite signs displayed in every room, in the kids’ area, says it all: “Adults keep out”. This hotel is all about catering to children, making sure they have the time of their lives.
Let me start from the beginning…..
When you drive up to the hotel, first of all, the kids are going to go wild. They will obviously know you’re going to spend the day at Legoland – more about that in another post. However, they will be even more giddy when they drive up to see you are checking into the first of it’s kind, Legoland Hotel. the first of a family of dragons that live in the hotel.
This adorable dragon in the clock tower greets guests as they drive up to the hotel entrance. Then you are greeted by bubbly friendly staff who will help you with your luggage and valet your car.
After taking a couple of pictures of the entrance – you know you will because the hotel is so colorful and cheery, besides trying to capture the kids excitement, you’ll wander in to be greeted by the second member of the dragon family.
A playful dragon sits atop a handle model of legos that the kids instantly fell in love with. There is a button on the side you push to hear the water gush into the “Lego River”. And while you are waiting to check in, the kids are entertained with building in a pool of legos to fill their creativity. Seriously, genius!!!
You know you have to check out the rest of the hotel after checking in. And again, the kids will not be disappointed when they find this….
A giant play structure full of legos in the moat surrounding the pirate ship/castle to play with and build . While you’re watching the kids play, parents can sit and relax in Mini’s Lounge with snacks and drinks.
