A major milestone in the expansion of the Legoland Florida Resort took place this month as the Legoland Hotel opened to visitors for the first time. Seen above, the new resort features a playfully bright facade filled with over-sized Lego bricks and other elaborate creations. A giant friendly looking dragon sits atop the clock tower that supports the port-cochère and greets visitors to start their experience.
The new hotel sits adjacent to the main entrance for Legoland Florida, and the grounds include this relaxing looking pool area. The hotel is also situated along the shore of Lake Eloise and does have some walking paths and boardwalks set among the beautiful landscaping the park is known for.
Guests of the Hotel also enjoy early access to Legoland Florida Resort, free full breakfast daily, interactive play areas, daily and nightly entertainment, disco elevator, resort pool and much more.
A perk found only at the Florida hotel is that the Master Model Builder Workshop is located on site, not in the theme park. Guests to the hotel will be able to work on projects alongside a Master Model Building during daily build sessions.
Naturally visitors will be hungry after a busy day at Legoland Florida, so Bricks Family Restaurant will come in handy. The full service buffet-style restaurant is located inside the hotel, and can offer up something even for the pickiest of eaters.
“Legoland Florida Resort is continuously expanding, making it an awesome place for families with children to stay for multiple days. The addition of Legoland Hotel makes that possible,” said General Manager of Legoland Florida Resort Adrian Jones. “The hotel is a fully immersive experience, with a number of exclusive features unique to Legoland Florida Resort and we’re excited to welcome families to stay and play with us for the first time in Florida!”
The new Lego Hotel in Florida is the first in the U.S. to offer rooms themed to Lego Friends, and has the only themed suite of its type in the world. The theme of the rooms are based on the five Lego Friends and their personalities: Olivia, Stephanie, Mia, Emily and Andrea.
Each of the 152 guest rooms in the hotel features one of four themes: Pirate, Kingdom, Adventure and Lego Friends. Above is one of the comfortable looking rooms for mom and dad; kids rooms feature a bunk bed and trundle bed. All rooms are capable of sleeping up to five guests at a time. For those who want to get a little more fancy, suites are available and sleep up to nine.
All rooms come with a special treasure chest that can only be unlocked by completed a hotel scavenger hunt - how cool!
