One of the most unique and memorable aspects of the world’s first LEGOLAND Hotel is its disco elevator. When the doors close, disco music and colorful lights come to life.

Legoland Hotel Disco Elevator

I dare you to not start dancing in the disco elevator! If your kids are like mine, they will want to ride up and down the three-story hotel again and again just for a chance to get their groove on.

Whoopee Cushion Carpeting

Just outside the elevator’s doors on the hotel’s first floor is the Whoopee Cushion carpeting, which makes noise when children jump on it. The Lego character on the wall says, “Ohh. You stinky pink!” At least that’s what it sounded like to me. Hilarious!

Nightly Live Entertainment

Another bonus of staying at the LEGOLAND Hotel in Carlsbad, California is the nightly live entertainment for children. Don’t expect a theatrical production complete with a plot. It’s really more of instructed play time with a LEGOLAND character. During our visit a pirate was in charge.

The Castle Play area at the LEGOLAND Hotel

The show takes place in the Castle Play area, near the lobby. The castle/pirate ship is filled with thousands of Lego bricks for building. This is adjacent to Mini’s Café, where parents can grab a drink or a quick snack and relax while children play.

      Lisa – Seriously, that elevator was so cool! It’s certainly the most interesting elevator I’ve ever been in.

    OHMYGOSH, my son would go wild about this. What would you say is the best age for LEGOLAND? They’re turning 7 and 9 this summer. Have we missed our chance?
