LEGOLAND CALIFORNIA – 1 Legoland Dr, Carlsbad, CA 92008
Admission: Typically $$$ (see below how you can save & still visit here!)
After visiting the LEGOLAND Discovery Center back in Phoenix, Arizona, we knew that we had to visit the Legoland theme park in California so I planned a trip here for my daughter’s 5th birthday.
We scored a GREAT deal on Groupon and I was able to get 2-day tickets to all 3 parks (water park, theme park, and SEALIFE Aquarium) for 2 people all for the price of $133.20!
I definitely recommend checking out Groupon to see what great deals you can score in your local area (or any area you’re visiting)! I’ve personally saved A TON simply by checking Groupon prior to purchasing fun activities for my daughters. Simply search “things to do for kids” in their search bar and you just may find a great deal! Plus, if you use Ebates (now known as Rakuten), YOU CAN SAVE EVEN MORE! So far, I’ve earned $584.70 since signing up. I’ll be honest, when I signed up I forgot to use Ebates for a year as I was partially skeptical + kept forgetting to use it when I shopped online, but when I received my first physical paycheck – I WAS HOOKED! *Disclaimer: If you sign up via the Groupon or Ebates link, I’ll also earn a portion from those companies for referrals.* Once you join, you can begin earning referral bonuses for telling others about your success stories! If you like/use Groupon and/or Ebates, let me know below! 😀
PLEASE NOTE: Always compare prices from a retailer’s site to make sure you’re getting the BEST deal!
Prior to purchasing our tickets, I checked out Legoland’s website and I’m glad that I did because all children 2 and under get FREE ADMISSION! Also, I wanted to note that if you plan to go on your child’s birth date, then they can get in free as long as they are turning 3 til they turn 12 to LEGOLAND California this year! 🎉 This link takes you directly to their birthday deal. Since we were not going to be in California for my daughter’s actual birth date, this deal wouldn’t have applied to us – this is why I went the Groupon route. Nevertheless, this is a great deal if you plan to go on the child’s actual birth date!
I always recommend checking out a retailer’s website as sometimes you can really score more savings (ex. children under a certain age getting free admission or in this case, free birthday admission 😉). This method continues to save me a lot of money especially since the girls are still in the stage where some events/places can be free due to their ages.
I didn’t have to pay for my second daughter since she’s 2 so our family was able to go for around the price you’d spend on a 1-day ticket! 🙌🏾 As I stated before, Groupon is definitely worth looking at before going anywhere. Since we didn’t live too far from the San Diego area, we drove 6 hours to California and had a blast for my daughter’s birthday weekend.
Both of the girls enjoyed the rides, SEA LIFE Aquarium, plus they took their first driver’s test (and received Legoland Driver’s Licenses! 😁).
Overall, the girls had lots of fun and we recommend visiting either LEGOLAND theme parks in California or Florida if you’re close to those areas. If you don’t have a Legoland theme park near you, you may have one of their Discovery Centers near you!
