Legoland (or, the review I am writing on my own)

Our spring break staycation (do people even say that anymore or has it gotten old, like how my students tell me YOLO is old?  anyway...) is coming to an end.

We went to Legoland earlier this week and thanks to a tip from a friend, I am now passing along this tip to my loyal readers.

Stay at the Marriott in Schaumburg.  I am in no way being compensated for this review, but it is just too good to keep a secret.  The Marriott has a Legoland package for four people.  For $149 (okay, so after the hotel adds their taxes the package actually costs $168 and change) you get:

  • a one night stay
  • 4 tickets to Legoland (right there - that's $60)
  • 1 free in-room movie (we watched Rise of the Guardians - typically $16.99)
  • 4 free breakfasts (and this is no continental breakfast - okay, maybe it's a souped up continental breakfast but there is a real omelet chef waiting to cook you something delicious to order and there are crepes, bacon and sausage, biscuits, potatoes, fresh fruit, all the typical continental breakfast breads and cereal, oatmeal and salmon and cheese - yes, salmon ) 
  • and there is a pool (priceless)
I'm serious - you get all of that.  What a treat.  Thanks Pam ;)

A bigger treat for mama and papa was an afternoon at IKEA.  Wolfie built his first IKEA item - a new chair for his room.


  1. That is a fantastic deal!! And oh how I miss Ikea! And Target!! And you all!


  2. That is an awesome deal! and do you know that after taking jon into the city all he talked about was how he wants to see lego land?

    Glad you all had a good time!

  3. I think that's the hotel Nancy and family stayed at last time they came up for Christmas. I think I remember they liked the pool party best. It sounds like you all had a wonderful time, and a good bargain too!
