When planning a trip to LEGOLAND, one of the most important decisions you’ll make is where to stay. Staying at the LEGOLAND Hotel can be a fantastic way to enhance your experience, but it’s important to know the best way to book to get the most out of your stay. In this article, we’ll share our top tips for booking the LEGOLAND Hotel to help you have a fun, stress-free vacation.
Staying at one of the LEGOLAND hotels is one of the best ways to take your trip to LEGOLAND to the next level.
We’ve stayed at one of the one-site hotels several times now, and I can truthfully say I wouldn’t recommend it any other way.
With that said – at first glance, it can be expensive! We are always looking for ways to save on vacations, and when I first considered booking a LEGOLAND Hotel, it was so expensive.
Thankfully, there are some ways you can save, and in this post, we’ll share the best tips for booking a LEGOLAND hotel.
For the purposes of this post, I will be focusing specifically on LEGOLAND California and LEGOLAND Florida, as these are the locations we have personally been to.
Bottom Line: The best time to book the Legoland Hotel is during the off-peak season, midweek, and as early as possible. Keep an eye out for any special deals and promotions, and book at least six months in advance if you plan to visit during peak season.
Watch for Deals
On our most recent vacation to LEGOLAND California, we scored an AMAZING deal for the LEGOLAND Hotel and our tickets – it was 50% off. When I had looked just a few weeks previous to the deal. This was a Black Friday deal, and they have different promotions available throughout the year.
This was available directly through the LEGOLAND website. I even tried to score the same deal through our friends at Get Away Today, and it was still better to book directly through the website.
With that said, Get Away Today usually has the most up-to-date deals and promotions – so you should definitely check with them.
If you can’t find a deal for the hotel, you can usually find kids’ visit free tickets for LEGOLAND. These are typically available in LEGO-themed movies, certain food items, and you can often find them online as well. You CAN book the LEGOLAND hotel without buying tickets, so this may be something to consider.
It’s important to book your stay as early as possible. The LEGOLAND Hotel is a popular destination, and rooms can fill up quickly, especially during peak travel seasons. By booking early, you’ll have the best chance of securing the dates and room type you want. Additionally, booking early can often lead to better rates and deals, so it’s a win-win situation.
Best Time to Book
When it comes to booking the Legoland Hotel, timing is everything. We recommend booking your stay as early as possible to ensure availability and to take advantage of any early booking discounts.
Generally, the best time to book is during the off-peak season, which is essentially non-summer months – and avoiding any major holidays or the spring break vacation. By booking during this time, you can avoid the crowds and get a better deal on your room.
We have had great luck going in January, October, and early November.
Middle of the Week
The middle of the week is usually pretty empty, especially when school is in session. Even if you are going during peak season, I would suggest booking Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday. Many people will take trips over the weekend and may start them on Friday or flow over into Monday.
Peak Season Booking
If you are planning to visit during peak season, such as the summer months or school holidays, I recommend booking at least 6 months in advance to secure your preferred room type and to avoid disappointment. Even when we’ve gone during peak season, the best rooms have been already booked.
Booking Directly with Legoland
When it comes to booking a stay at Legoland Hotel, often the best way to do it is by booking directly with Legoland. Here are a few reasons why:
- Guaranteed Best Price: When you book directly with Legoland, you can be sure that you are getting the best price available. Legoland offers a price match guarantee, so if you find a lower rate on another website, they will match it.
