The ONLY LEGOLAND Hotel in the United States is now open for business in Carlsbad California!
My boys and I were fortunate to be in Carlsbad for this most AWESOME opening of the LEGOLAND Hotel! With confetti flying, kids screaming, and parents covering their ears…
Here are the TOP TEN THINGS PARENTS will LOVE about THE LEGOLAND HOTEL:
1. YOU CAN PLAY EYE SPY FOR HOURS UPON CHECK IN
If you have kids that need to CONSTANTLY be engaged with you…no worries! While you’re trying to talk to the staff at The Legoland Hotel and check in, you can play eye spy! The back wall is filled with THOUSANDS of tiny lego people. All you have to do is tell your kids to find one (either spy one yourself or make up one to keep them searching!) Now, you’ll have the ability to check-in in peace while the kiddos are engaged!
2. FREE SURPRISE FOR THE KIDS
As soon as you’ve checked in and have your room key…you’ll walk down the hall to find your room. The kids will be running way ahead…(you’ll need to move a quicker pace to keep up). Once thery’re in the room, they’ll open the special safe JUST for them, where they’ll find a surprise to entertain them while you unpack!
3. THE KIDS HAVE THEIR OWN SEPARATE SLEEPING SPACES
Oh yeah! This means the kids are happy with their bunkbeds…and mom and dad can be ecstatic that they can sleep in their OWN beds without feeling little toes wiggling beside them! (Legoland Hotel cannot, however, guarantee that your kids will stay in their own beds all night…but, they are provided)
4. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO COOK
That sounds like HEAVEN to me already! The LEGOLAND Hotel has The Bricks Family Restaurant (which is a family style buffet with something for everyone!) as well as the Skyline Cafe (serving drinks and snacks throughout the day).
AND…did I happen to mention that Lego characters can be known to frequent Bricks??
5. NIGHTLY ENTERTAINMENT IS PROVIDED
After a long day of playing at Legoland, dinner at Bricks, you don’t have to worry about what to do if the kids are still WIDE eyed and bushy tailed! The atrium is filled with a magical castle, tons of legos to play with, and nightly entertainment!
6. REMINISCE ABOUT THE DISCO DAYS
Whether you have a room on the second or third floor…you NEED to ride the elevator. Once the door close, a disco ball falls and music plays…time for the family to get their groove on!
7. TODDLER TRAINING TOILET SEATS (need I say more?)
In the rooms at The LEGOLAND Hotel, you’ll find the most spectacular toilet seats! NO…they don’t warm your bum or massage it…BUT, if you came with a potty training toddler, you’ll be as EXCITED I was to see this awesome little seat! (It’s attached to the toilet!! Now, the kids won’t be scared of falling in..and you will be able to continue potty training!)
8. TWO TELEVISIONS
Now…you may the kind of parents that do NOT want a television in your kids’ rooms. However, while on vacation, you’ll be happy to know that you DO NOT have to watch cartoons!! Not only do you have your own bed and flat screen…but, the kids do too!!!! (and they can’t pull it off the wall…it’s totally secured to the wall~)
9. CATERING TO EARLY RISING KIDS
If your kids refuse to sleep in…LEGOLAND has you covered! First, you get up and have breakfast at Bricks, then…because you’re staying at The LEGOLAND Hotel, you and your family will have early access to select LEGOLAND rides and attractions before the public!
10. CHEESIEST GRINS ALL DAY LONG
If you can handle all the constant smiles, infiltrating laughters, occasional starring, and heart melting elation…then, you’re ready to stay at The LEGOLAND Hotel! This hotel was made FOR THE KIDS with their needs and wants in mind. However, I think I’ve shared all the reasons that parents will love it too!
The Official LEGOLAND Hotel website is HERE. You’ll be able to read more about the hotel and the park and schedule your first trip!
