I know our twins are super excited to stay and experience the brand spankin new Legoland Hotel in Carlsbad, CA.  But secretly……..

…..mommy can not wait!

Last year we had season passes and LOVED every bit of it!  From Nevada Carlsbad, CA is a 5 hour drive or 50 minute flight by air.  We opt for the car ride and make fun stops along the way.  Legoland Hotel in California is all set to open April 5, 2013.  Yay!

Native of Southern California I’m not at all shy to amusement parks.  Heck, they were my playground growing up.  BUT…Legoland, this is a whole different BIG beautiful dream come true.  Is your little ones (or big ones – i.e. me) a fan of Lego’s?  We are a Lego kind of family.  Now that Legoland is opening it’s first ever Hotel in the United States, there’s nothing more we need here on the west coast.

You already know we are HUGE Carlsbad California fans!  Yes, if it could be our second home it would be.  The beaches are warm, inviting and so close to Legoland.

Want to know what I’m looking forward to in this absolutely fun hotel – I mean our children are looking forward to? (lol):

  1. The kids sleeping in bunk beds – Every room has a separate sleeping area for up to three children complete with bunk beds and a pull-out trundle-bed (Score!!!)
  2. The kids looking forward to their own space in the same room (I know similar to the above but truly a double score!!) – Every room has two TVs so kids can watch movies and play games in their own sleeping area
  3. The Disco Elevator – mirror ball and flashing lights…need I say more!
  4. In room treasure hunt – My kids are still at an age where they love to hunt so this will be fun!
  5. Being greeted by a fire-breathing dragon – Just kinda cool (look for this pic on my instagram)

Wanna take a peak at the first ever Legoland hotel in the United States…..um, yes please….ok here you go:

3 stories and 250 rooms of fun…right!

There is so much to look forward to do in this hotel and I don’t want to miss a thing.
