COWABUNGALOW! that is the official greeting to your fellow residents of LEGOLAND Florida’s newest resort, LEGOLAND Beach Retreat.
We had the chance to go along on a hard hat tour of the new resort recently. LEGOLAND is famous for shrinking down things to put in their Minilands; however, this feels like just the opposite. Even while under construction, you feel like you are the one shrunken down into the ability to walk in a Miniland.
This expansive new resort, just across the street from LEGOLAND Florida and along the picturesque Lake Dexter will open its beaches on April 7th.
The entrance into the resort is taking shape,
while it is not there yet, you can see the entrance will evolve into this.
The main common area of the resort and pool are far from complete; however, you can start to see some outlines of where things will be pieced together, such as the pool facility.
this really ties real life with design, you can see what the view will be verses what it is now.
The Lighthouse will serve as the central hub for the resort. The resort’s two restaurants and retail locations are located inside of The Lighthouse.
This will be the location of Sandy’s Castle Restaurant, the main 300 seat restaurant of the resort, open for all three daily meals that kids and adult sized kids will enjoy equally.
Sandy’s breakfast buffet is included with your stay at the resort. The second food and beverage location, Bricks Beach Bar, will be located just off to the side of Sandy’s Castle Restaurant. Bricks will offer made-to-order food, drinks and creative cocktails served poolside and inside The Lighthouse.
This area will be transformed into Palm Tree Traders. This large retail shop will be stocked with LEGO building sets and Minifigures, apparel, toys, swimwear, snacks and sundries.
Meanwhile, the bungalows around the resort are in varying degrees of exterior completeness.
The 83 bungalows are scattered around the resort into 13 different coves named after LEGO’s quirky Minifigures.
(Note: unlike the LEGOLAND Hotel, the units are all exactly the same)
The resort is still well under construction; but you can tell the pieces are just waiting to be put into place.
You can build your reservation now via the resorts website or (877) 350-5346 daily for as low as $135 depending on season.
