Continuing their path of rapid expansion, the Legoland Florida Resort has announced their 3rd on-site accommodation, named the Pirate Island Hotel, scheduled to open in the spring of 2020.

The new hotel will actually be connected to the existing Legoland Hotel, and face outward from it at an angle, into what is currently some of the parking lot.  That means that guests who stay in the Pirate Island Hotel will still be extremely close to the main entrance of Legoland Florida, able to start their day at the park in just "130 kid steps" from hotel to theme park.

This concept art for the new hotel shows that it will be pirate themed from top to bottom, consisting of 150 guest rooms on several floors.  The outside of the building includes several pirate facades as well as a huge pirate ship out front to greet visitors.

Other amenities within the hotel include a large swimming pool with a substantial deck area, plenty of themed activities and play areas for kids, and a full service pirate-themed restaurant that also gives families a free breakfast meal each day.

As with all Legoland resorts, the rooms at the Pirate Island Hotel will be totally pirate themed as well.  The above image is a concept for the rooms, though the final plans may differ a bit.  Each room will have a special section just for kids, with boat-shaped bunkbeds, and include other fun items such as a Lego play area, treasure map headboards and a treasure chest filled with goodies.

While the hotel won't open until 2020, this summer guests can look forward to visiting a new themed area, named The Lego Movie World, will three new attractions.  The resort will also build a new miniature golf course adjacent to the original Legoland Hotel.
