Today we took the train to Billund, Denmark, the home of THE Legoland. It requires a bit of finagling to get to from Copenhagen – 2 or 3 train connections plus a short stint on a bus. Amir thankfully is a great navigator on all our trips. He can look at a route ahead of time (when internet is accessible) and navigate across an entire country from just Google Maps screenshots.
We dedicated today to travel with the goal of getting to Billund with time to check in to our hotel, grab some dinner at MINI CHEF, and unwind for a big day tomorrow.
Jeff told us about MINI CHEF last night. Here’s how it works:
2. Stack your blocks in the tray and load it into the computer to create your meal.
3. The computer detects your creation and little LEGO chefs build your meal.
4. A few minutes later, it appears on a conveyor belt where two friendly robots then deliver it to you.
5. Bring your meal back to your table and enjoy!
The whole dining area has activities for the kids within reach. Books, little LEGOs, big LEGOs, there’s lots to keep the kids busy while dinner is prepared.
MINI CHEF is located inside LEGO House, which features a coffee shop, LEGO store and six zones of fun inside the main portion of LEGO House. You don’t need to buy a ticket to LEGO House to be able to eat at MINI CHEF or the cafe.
There’s a small LEGO store located inside LEGO House. All the favorites are available there including StarWars, LEGO Movie, Harry Potter and more.
Tomorrow morning we’ll walk a short distance from our hotel, Hotel Svanen, to Legoland to spend the day.
