Legoland California General Manager Peter Ronchetti, left, looks on for the Legoland press conference tradition of dropping the bricks.
Legoland currently has a hotel at its original Denmark park, and a hotel opening at its Windsor, England park next year.
Construction is scheduled to begin in October on the three-story, 250-room hotel, which will be built on the site of the current bus parking lot, to the right of the park's entrance.
The hotel, which will be operated by Legoland and not an outside hotel company, will feature Lego brick decor, as well as a pool area and restaurant. Legoland California General Manager Peter Ronchetti told me that the details are still to be worked out, but that hotel visitors will be able to expect special in-park privileges for staying at the Legoland Hotel, possibly including early or extra ride time in the park.
