Legoland Florida Hotel News + 2015 Expansion Revealed

Legoland Florida Resort has announced a May 15th grand opening of their new hotel, located directly adjacent to the theme park's entrance.  A part of changing the property into a multi-day destination, the hotel will sport 152 highly themed rooms, play areas, and a restaurant.  The date was announced by the hotel's General Manager, Kevin Carr, seen above earlier today.

“Legoland Hotel offers a unique experience unlike any other in Florida,” said Carr. “Imagine how excited children will be to wake up in a giant toy box full of Lego bricks and to be the first to enter the theme park each day.”

The resort's construction is starting to enter the final phases, with the main structure now enclosed and work on amenities now underway.  Here is a look at the hotel's pool area, with the theme park just beyond the tree line.  Also announced today was the moving of the Master Model Builders Workshop to the hotel, to be open exclusively for resort guests.  Guests will be able to learn from and build along with the Master Builders each day.

In addition to the hotel news, Legoland Florida also announced an entirely new themed area for the park, named Heartlake City.  The new area will feature a Zamperla Disk'O Coaster, themed to horses and called Mia's Riding Adventure.  The area will also have a new interactive show called "Friends To The Rescue," and new shops inside Heartlake Mall.  The area is based off the popular Lego series of the same name.

With so many recent expansions, a full water park, and now a hotel, Legoland Florida is proud to call itself a multi-day experience for both Orlando residents and tourists alike.
