The owners of Legoland California want to build a 250-room, Lego-themed hotel outside the amusement park's gates.
On Wednesday, the park will ask Carlsbad's planning commission to approve a change to the parking requirement, among other preliminary steps to construction.
"I think it's something people have asked about for a long time," park spokeswoman Beth Downing told the North County Times Friday as she discussed the hotel, which is proposed to occupy the RV parking lot next to the main entrance.
A new Sea Park Aquarium was added to the amusement park last year.
A park spokesperson said the proposal is all part of an effort to keep people at the attractions longer than one day.
The hotel project will require both city and state Coastal Commission approval because it falls within the state's coastal review zone. Construction is expected to take two to three years, Downing told the paper.
