Legoland Hotel Is Now Open

By Kelsey Ogletree, June 1, 2015

Legoland Florida Resort’s highly anticipated 152-room Legoland Hotel in Winter Haven opened to much fanfare in May. The 18-month project was celebrated with confetti, music, balloons and eager children—lots of them. Thousands of mini Lego figures were shot from canons and parachuted down from the sky as kids raced to find the figure that held the key to the front door of the five-story hotel.

Inside, more than 2,000 Lego creations serve as decor. Behind the reception desk is a wall covered with more than 5,000 mini Lego figures, and a castle play area complete with a moat and a pirate ship in the lobby invites kids to use their imaginations. The on-site Bricks Family Restaurant has a buffet station designed at a kid-friendly height.

With the addition of the hotel, the Legoland theme park is now considered a resort. It has one conference room that can seat 70, and youth organizations congregating in the Orlando area—an hour’s drive—can also make it a day trip.
