These three unique stays are a kids dream come true! I wish my parents had known about them when I was a little one…in saying that, you’re never too old right?! I’ll be poolside at LEGOLAND HOTEL!
LEGOLAND HOTEL, Carlsbad, USA

JUMBO STAY Stockholm, Sweden
When I was a kid my cousins and I used to make aeroplane cubby houses out of cardboard boxes. We would set up camp in there and beg our parents if we could spend the night in our flimsy fantasy plane.
Now the whole family can join in the fun and stay in a REAL plane without even leaving the ground!
Jumbo Stay hotel is a converted aeroplane which has three room categories, from a quad dormitory for families to a luxury suite for two in the cockpit which looks out onto the airport! There is also a cool airliner-themed on-board cafe, serving breakfast and light meals.
STARTS AT: $78 per person per night for a four-person dormitory room.

DISNEYLAND HOTEL, Hong Kong
You had me at “Disneyland” and I’m sure any kid worth their Mickey Mouse ears would agree! The kids will think they are dreaming as they are met in the foyer by their Disney favourites, and will love the attention to detail when they see the towels in their rooms are folded into Disney characters.
See Disney tales come to life in the Storybook Playroom. Kids can get playfully lost in the Mickey Maze or eat meals with Pluto at the Enchanted Garden Restaurant. The Disneyland theme park is nearby.
STARTS AT $331 per night for a garden view room (sleeps four).
