I didn't expect to have so much fun - but I did! We took our family there to celebrate our grandchildren's birthdays. It was priced really fair and there's a ton of different stuff to do. We got there early and rode rides then went to the see the Legos and to the Aquarium. It was a great time I will always cherish. Next time we'll stay another day and go to the waterpark too.

We took our 5yr old and she had a blast. They seemed a bit understaffed at some rides leading to a longer wait time but overall a great experience.

My kid loves coming here, I am just happy he is happy. There are lots of attractions for children. The parking lot is a good walk to the park because they save the closer spots for guests of the hotels. We don’t ever eat here so I can’t really speak to the food.

"Different experience than Disney"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed July 17, 2018 NEW
Been to Legoland and Disney several times. Vastly different experiences and both with their own merits. My kiddos are 5 and 9 with one a prime Legoland candidate and the other aging out. Don't get me wrong, still stuff for 9yr olds to do but some of the calmer rides are now considered boring and his favorite ride has a max height of 55 in. This is the last time he can enjoy that ride. The 5 yr old did all the coasters but the big drop in technic didn't get a thumbs up. Have enjoyed our trips to Legoland over the years. Nice family vacation with time to bond vs feeling the pressure and stress associated with Disney over stimulation. The crowds here are not at all like Disney and not near as overwhelming. Even when busy the park still has room to breathe. A nice pro over Disney are the food options. So many healthier options for kids and adults when you don't want to live on chicken fingers and burgers the whole trip. Con is the staffing and service. Disney tries to pride themselves on customer service and it shows compared to Legoland. There are lanes at restaurants and service desks that are "open" but no one to man them. But those that you do encounter are super accommodating. We are here for 4 days staying at the castle. We did a full first day at Legoland, 2nd day half Legoland and Sea Life. The kiddos wanted a break from parks on day 3 and waterpark on day 4. Plenty of time!

"Great family get-away"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed July 17, 2018 NEW
Legoland Hotel is perfect for our preteen kids. The hotel is geared toward family with kids, and so there were plenty of activities to keep our kids busy so much so that they were exhausted and passed out by 9 pm. The hotel room has bunk beds for up to 3 kids, and a king size for the grown-ups and plenty of room for everything else and the room is clean and neatly furnished. All of the staff we encountered were friendly and courteous. The Brick restaurant offered a wide variety of choices for dinner and breakfast. The Legoland park is not like Disneyland, not as many rides but is much shorter. The longest time we waited in line was approx 25 minutes compared to 90 minutes on the average at Disneyland. Your kids do not have to be a fan of lego to thoroughly enjoy your stay at Legoland Hotel and Legoland park.

LEGOLAND is always such an exciting adventure for my family. We love everything about it. Weather is always perfect, there is a splash pad in LEGOLAND so your kids can still cool off and get wet without having to buy a separate waterpark admission. Lines are reasonable even on the weekends.

LEGOLAND is perfect for my 2 and 5 year-old. Yes, the rides are boring compared to Disney as mentioned by a lot of reviewers, but it’s half the cost, even less if you get a 3-day park hopper, and so much more relaxing. The bathrooms are clean, the staff is friendly, and the vibe is a lot less frenetic. It’s a land of legos- not meant as a Disney alternative.
