Do your children love LEGOS? Then take them to The LEGOLAND Castle Hotel in California which creates a family adventure fit for a king with the castle's exclusive LEGO® characters and many mischievous interactive surprises.

Hear ye!  Hear ye!  The new LEGOLAND Castle Hotel at LEGOLAND California Resort in Carlsbad, California is now open!  The grand opening ceremony included knights on horses, a little girl squire and boy knight plus a hawk that flew the key to the Castle to Merlin the wizard.

The LEGOLAND Castle Hotel near San Diego offers guests an immersive experience into a magical world of wizards, dragons, knights and shining armor.  Not only does every room tell a story, but every wall, floor and LEGO model is designed to make guests feel like they’re in an actual castle.  Field Trip Girl and Field Trip Boy couldn’t stop commenting on how “cool” it was.

My family and I were invited as some of the first guests to walk into the Grand Hall and see such an awesome sight of magic and wonder designed for kids ages 2 – 12 years old.   My kids spent well over an hour in what I nicknamed the “LEGO pit”, while I checked in with the friendly Castle Hotel staff.

While in the LEGO pit, make sure to look up and and see the towering LEGO wizard conjuring up spells to protect the Castle from the bad knights and dragons.  The wizard statue is just one of more than 2,100 LEGO models created out of more than three million bricks.

In the Grand Hall, there are activities for every child of every age to age.  Behind the reception desk, my kids discovered many mysterious trinkets – items left over from previous LEGO royalty such as swords, books, potions and candles.

My daughter especially enjoyed the built-in slide that comes down into the lobby from the first floor above check-in level, planning her escape out of the secret dungeon and taking her picture on the royal throne while waiting for the Queen to arrive.

After we checked in, we went upstairs to relax and play in our room before dinner.  The 250-room LEGOLAND Castle Hotel offers three premium themed hotel rooms, which can sleep up to five: Knights and Dragons, Royal Princess and Magic Wizard.


Knights and Dragons Room LEGOLAND Castle Hotel

We stayed in the Knights and Dragons room where the knights were on a mission to defend the king’s castle and protect his treasure.  Every room in the hotel has a separate children’s sleeping area which includes bunk beds, a trundle bed, their own television, LEGO building station, shooting stars illuminating on the ceiling and a fun scavenger hunt.

Royal Princess Room LEGOLAND Castle Hotel

In the Royal Princess room, the princess joins forces with her jester friend to sneak into the grand tournament and compete with the knights.  Depending upon which hotel room you are in, every adult sleeping area comes with an ornate head board with LED lights which could resemble a stained glass window, a canopy sparking with twinkling lights or shelves filled with potions and a magical bubbling illuminated cauldron.

While I savored my dinner, my kids enjoyed listening to the self-playing piano, making LEGO figurines for the LEGO dipslay bookshelf and spinning the “wheel of fortune”.
