Want to visit the beach and Legoland while in Florida? Well, Legoland Florida Resort will be opening their newest resort hotel property in April. The Legoland Beach Retreat combines the best of scaled LEGO designs with many of the amenities and features of staying beachside. Whereas the actual beach is over an hour away, Legoland pulled out all the stops to create that beachy atmosphere for future guests.
The Beach Retreat is a more affordable option for larger families or those families who are traveling together to Legoland. Since the resort hotel accommodations are in the form of beach bungalows, there is plenty of room for you and the kids! Each bungalow is placed in a cove with other bungalows with a playground in the middle. Located off a large lake, this resort property feels every bit as close to the ocean as the Polynesian Resort does at Walt Disney World. Incredibly colorful! I loved the feeling of being a LEGO figure amidst a beachside neighborhood. For those who want to dine at the resort or simply grab a drink, then head to the Lighthouse!
Although the resort is still under construction, I was able to attend a media day the other day. Once the hotel is completed, I will definitely return to take more photos. But, I have a couple photos included with this article so you can get an idea of what the hotel will look like.
Legoland Florida is expanding rapidly, and that is exciting indeed! With a theme park, water park, deluxe hotel, and now moderate hotel, where will it expand next??? Oh yeah, don't forget to check out the newly opened Ninjago World as well!Reference Link(s): Learn More About LEGOLAND Florida's Beach Resort
Ryan (right) is a theme park enthusiast living in Central Florida, and loves going to the parks as often as possible! He's an annual passholder to Disney, Universal, Busch Gardens, and SeaWorld. In the Fall of 2017, his Thrillz article on Turn it Up: the Hottest Show on Ice at Busch Gardens was cited in a massive ad campaign. He also loves horror films and just movies in general! If you see him out and about in the Florida parks, stop him to say hi!
Ryan holds a Master of Arts degree in Media Studies (with a concentration in cinema and themed entertainment) from the University of South Florida. His research area is on the convergence of cinema and theme parks. He explores ideas such as narrative, spectacle, setting, and setting in terms of movies and themed entertainment. Learning how to successfully translate an idea of intellectual property from one medium into another is the primary goal of his predictable model for creative design that affects both theme parks and the cinema.
Although he loves to write for Thrillz, his "day jobs" are working as a video editor for Disney on Ice and teaches screenwriting at the University of Tampa.
He is also a figure skater.
