Legoland Florida Hotel Update + New Resort Map

Legoland Florida, now officially known as the Legoland Florida Resort, is hard at work on their new hotel, slated to open next summer.  That means the Legoland Hotel will be open in less than one year's time, allowing guests to stay on property and enjoy Legoland Florida for multiple days.

The hotel has started to accept reservations for summer 2015, with rates for the themed rooms starting at $249 per night.  The five story Lego themed hotel will have 152 rooms and suites.  Naturally, the resort will also be filled with a plentiful amount of Lego play areas as well.

Reservations for the new hotel can be made via this link.

The Legoland Hotel has been under construction since last November, and the park recently held a "topping off" ceremony when the highest part of the property was constructed.  Emmet, from "The Lego Movie" can be seen above helping to place the Merlin flag during the ceremony.  You can get a peek at the L-shaped hotel in the background of the image.

The Legoland Hotel is located adjacent to the entrance to Legoland Florida, making it literally steps from the theme park's entrance.  The Hotel will include an outdoor pool and restaurants like a kid-size buffet.  Guests of the hotel will receive exclusive early entry into the theme park and nightly entertainment.

Seen above is what one of the resort's many themed rooms will look like.  Families can choose from one of three popular Lego toy lines as their room theme: Pirate, Kingdom or Adventure. All rooms include two separate sleeping areas, with a queen-size bed for grown-ups, and a separate sleeping area for up to three little ones, complete with a bunk bed, pull-out trundle bed and their very own TV!

The Legoland Florida Resort also released this new park map, showing the addition of the hotel in the lower right.  As you can see it couldn't be any closer to the park unless it was actually in the middle of it!  With the recent addition of a Chima themed area, and the water park operating as well, the park has really grown in size.
