Legoland is a wonderful, fun and enjoyable place. We've been going there since 7 years ago. They have great events all year round. For ex. this coming Jun 15-16 they'll have the Star Wars Days, with appearances from the 501st Legion dressed in outfits that we've only seen in the movies. The Darth Vader is very impressive and on point. They have many great contests, activities and plenty of photo opportunities. Our favorite event is their Halloween "Brick of Treat", it not only includes many costume contests, but it has great live shows and entertainers all over the park and every kid that wants to take the "brick or treat trail" gets a nice and healthy treat. It takes place during all the weekends on October. We went to their Water Park since they open, it's very well taken care off and clean, it has 3 different pools for all the ages plus slides and a fun and relaxing "floaty river". Legoland at Christmas time is beautiful and filled with fun activities and shows. Their "New Year's" event is fantastic, it has a live concert with 4-5 bands that come annually and they give the audience small party favors to join in the celebration and there's an amazing 20-25 min fireworks show at the end. Legoland is not just for little kids. If you're into lego building there's plenty of opportunity for that including the monthly lego build off where the winners are invited to the annual competition. They also have lego robotics at the "Mind Storms" hall for kids 9 and older, it's very interesting and fun, but you have to make reservations as soon as you get in the park because it books quickly. Their bathrooms are clean and roomy, Legoland was the first park to have family bathrooms. The food is good and not pricey, their restaurants often offer discount coupons printed in the program of the events of the day. One neat thing unique to this park is that if you buy something where ever you are you can use their "pick up purchase" feature that allows you to pick it up at the end of your visit from their front desk so you don't have to carry the bags all day with you.

Tips for Families

* Our Tips: If you want to go just for one day try to get the discount tickets from any local market. If you want to try a 3-month membership, the best is to buy it a the nearby Carlsbad Costco (5 min away). You won't find this at any other Costco. If you decide you like it enough to go all the time you can upgrade those passes to annual passes, which are great because the parking is included and it gives you a discount on every purchase and food you buy.

Their latest addition is a Pirate Reef, which a fun ride for all the family. Legoland at Christmas time is beautiful and filled with fun activities and shows. Their Christmas Tree is huge, made of Legos and light up! Their "New Year's" event is fantastic, it has a live concert with 4-5 bands that come annually and they give the audience small party favors to join in the celebration and there's an amazing 20-25 min fireworks show at the end.
