I had incredibly high expectations for the Legoland Hotel and unlike my first kiss (which happened on top of a dog house unfortunately not made of legos because that would have been an amazing tie in), the hotel didn’t disappoint.
The excitement started building weeks in advance when we were to choose a room theme: Pirate or Kingdom or Adventure, oh my!
I desperately wanted to stay in the pirate themed room because, arrrrrr matey, talking like pirates is cool. Unfortunately, my seven year old insisted on staying in an Adventure room. Which? I ended up loving. It took me back to the days of Indiana Jones. I was crazy for Harrison Ford. I had a poster, a crush and a lot of young girl dreams.
While you are checking in at the front desk, which has the coolest backdrop EVER, there won’t be kids hanging from your every limb whining. No sir. They will be playing with Legos of course.
The travel from the front desk to the room was not your normal hotel snoozefest. Two of our favorite attractions? A built in giant whoopie cushion, because nothing is funnier than 15 kids jumping on a whoopie cushion while you wait for the elevator, right? Fart. Hahahahahahahah. Fart. Hahahahahaha. Fart…you get the idea.
And just when you think you can’t take one more moment of flatulation ridden laughter? The elevator door opens and you enter to the beautiful sounds of peaceful elevator music. Ahhhhhh.
And then? The doors close and this happens. Every. FABULOUS. Time.
The day after we left the Legoland Hotel, Colt and I took a “normal” elevator, “This elevator is boring,” he said. Indeed it was.
We unloaded our junk and headed down to Bricks restaurant for a little buffet style dinner. One of the things I have cherished about Legoland over the years is the ability to find healthy food when we visit the park. The hotel is no exception. I had a salad, some delicious green beans and the salmon. Of course, they thought of the little ones too and designed a buffet just their size with healthy options such as broccoli, mixed veggies and fresh fruit.
After dinner we joined friends to hang out in the play area. I am sitting off camera sipping a glass of chardonnay in the lounge that overlooks this piratey perfection.
The kids played for almost two non-stop hours and then we all made our way upstairs for some much needed sleep after a day of more fun than you can throw a Lego at. As Colt drifted off to sleep he said, “That was the best day ever mama. I can’t wait to come back.” And as I drifted off, I said, “Well hello Harrison.”
A giant thanks for the special evening hosted by Legoland Hotel. It was a day of memories for us that will live on forever.
