1. Staying Over Night. The Legoland Hotel was something special. I had images of sleeping on a lego bed, but it was a normal bed; ha ha! The decor however was so great for the kids, with little pieces of lego art everywhere, and lego to play with in the room. The only thing is you had to book a breakfast sitting. We do like to just chill and get up to our own beat, but that was not possible. We booked the later setting and we had a late check out, but it felt restrictive.
2. Birthday booking. I booked a birthday package and was not disappointed. They made a birthday room for my daughter, she had her own bottle of birthday bubbly to share with her brother and friends, as well as a birthday present. It was super special and made her day.
3. Separate parts shop. This is where my husband got his big kid on, and came into his own element. So to say the family a lego fanatics is an understatement. We like to build cars, canons, catapults and anything that can be concocted in the imagination. So in the lego shop you can buy multiples of parts, some special parts are restricted to a 100 grams, but if you are there as a family, you can still get what you need. It's well worth a visit if you are looking for certain parts that you don't necessarily find enough of in lego sets. The kids are also into We Do and code what they want their creations to do, you can see videos on my instagram.
4. VIP Gold Pass Token. I know it's costly but it was worth ever penny. We never waited for a ride and did all rides in one day:Ninjago was so cool. If you can afford it, I would highly recommend booking a gold pass. You reserve a ride and when it beeps you walk into the entrance, the max we then waited was maybe 4 minutes. Time is precious! My parents were with us for this trip as it was my daughters birthday, and we both said "we never had this in my day", but they loved it. My 66 year old Dad kept hoping onto all the rides.
The only thing that could be improved was the food, like most theme parks the food is much to be admired. The food however at the hotel in the evening was very good.
