Although you’ll find Legos all around the new property when it opens in early to mid-2015, don’t worry. Legoland Florida’s new hotel won’t actually be built out of Legos. Legoland Florida officials announced the 152-room hotel today and construction has already begun.
The announcement was made alongside community leaders with a ceremonial ground-(brick)-breaking moment at the site where the hotel will be built, directly to the left of Legoland Florida’s entrance. “The opening of a Legoland Hotel will transition Legoland Florida from a single-day visit theme park to a multi-day resort destination,” said Adrian Jones, general manager of Legoland Florida. “This will serve as a catalyst for future economic development in Polk County.”
Welcoming guests with a multicolored exterior and entrance, the four-story Legoland Hotel will immerse families in the world of Lego, as an extension of the theme park experience. The Lego-themed hotel will feature 152 brightly colored and highly themed rooms and suites, Lego décor, interactive play areas, a pool and a restaurant.
The Legoland Florida Hotel will add 250 construction-related jobs during the construction, and another 250 jobs to its employee base to staff the new hotel upon completion. This will be the fifth Legoland Hotel in the world, joining Legoland California, Legoland Windsor and Legoland Billund hotels. Legoland Malaysia Hotel will soon open its doors.
