Legoland Florida has expanded their resort options with the opening of the new Legoland Beach Retreat. Located just a half mile away from the theme park, the 83 Lego themed bungalows sit on the shores of Lake Dexter.
The bright colored bungalows are designed for families traveling with children as each room features a single king size bed and as well as a pair of bunk beds with a trundle bed. Although the rooms are on the smallish side, they can sleep up to five.
The bungalows are arranged in themed “coves” named after Lego minifigures and feature their own playground as a centerpiece. Parents can relax on the porch of their bungalow while still keeping the little ones in sight.
If you’re taking a break from the theme park, the Beach Retreat offers a few amenities to keep your family entertained including a large swimming pool, Sandy’s Castle Restaurant and the Palm Tree Traders shop.
Each evening the four-story tall lighthouse sitting on top of the main building lights up in a ceremony hosted by Pirate Queen Ruby.
One of the most unique features of the Beach Resort is the check-in process, which happens right from your car. Pulling up the gate we were surprised to not be directed to a main lobby, instead we were given our room keys and sent on our way to our room.
This is Legoland Florida’s second resort following the 152-room Legoland Hotel that opened two years ago. The new 166 room Beach Retreat doubles the number of rooms available to guests visiting the theme park. Rooms at the new resort can be had for around $135 a night but will vary by season and demand.
