Fancy Frugal Life: Legoland California (Money Saving Tips)

Legoland California (Money Saving Tips)

** Sponsored post from LEGOLAND, but all opinions are mine.**

 We recently took a family road trip and break from our extreme heat to San Diego last week and our first stop was LEGOLAND California. I had heard mixed reviews from friends who have done this theme park, but I am happy to report that we LOVED it! What a super fun park. It wasn't terribly crowded and my kids were the perfect ages for this one at 4 and 6 years old. We spent only one day because I wanted lots of beach time and I felt like we saw it all (except for the water park and aquarium). Those did look neat too.

 Here are some of my thoughts and tips for Legoland:

--Don't pay full price for the tickets! 
There are currently at least 2 national discounts going on. 
                                             Quaker Life Cereal Box: FREE Child’s ticket with purchase of Adult
Burger King: FREE Child’s ticket with purchase of Adult. This is available on the BK Crown in the Kid’s Meal.
--Your AAA card, if you have one, will get you 10% off tickets. Visit here for some other discounts at Legoland.
--I've also seen discount gift cards at Costco for Legoland.
--I've also heard reports of coupons in Lego magazines!
--There are lockers at the front of the park so we brought a cooler with our lunches, drinks, and snacks for the kids. My aunt had an awesome fresh Caprese salad and fresh fruit at the wonderful deli by the lockers. It was pretty reasonably priced too!
--I thought it was worth the $20 for the preferred parking because it literally was just steps away from the entrance.  
--There is a free LEGOLAND phone AP with a Map, show times, and Lego trivia for when standing in line :)
--I LOVED the lego play areas next to the rides so the kids can play instead of standing in line. Whomever thought of that is a genius!
--There were lots of tame rides for the littles and a few older kid rides and roller coasters.
--Bring the kids a swim suit even if you do not go to the water park. There are lots of wet rides like a log ride that they loved but also got really soaked. We had to go in the "Family Dryer"! ha

                     Here's our visit in photos!

 We enjoyed the life size Lego sculptures! 

 Thanks for stopping by! We had a lovely time in San Diego and now it's 113 today here...yikes!

Many times the Lego Club magazines also have free child with adult purchase coupons in them. I just posted on Facebook that I was looking for some(our Lego magazine had expired ones in them) and a few friends offered to mail me theirs!

Hi Lina! Wow! Looks like Legoland was a hit! Your family looks like they enjoyed themselves! San Diego is just a bit far for us to go since hubs doesn't like to fly! 113? And I thought it was hot here at 97! Stay cool! Blessings from Bama!
