I didn't expect to have so much fun - but I did! We took our family there to celebrate our grandchildren's birthdays. It was priced really fair and there's a ton of different stuff to do. We got there early and rode rides then went to the see the Legos and to the Aquarium. It was a great time I will always cherish. Next time we'll stay another day and go to the waterpark too.

"Legoland highly recommended!"
February, 2018 NEW
Our group of 5 ranging in age from 8 to 54 had a great time at Legoland California. We spent two full days, everyone enjoyed rides, exploration, yummy food, and interactive games and displays. We also loved the Sealife Aquarium.

Tip: There is a Legoland app that tells you the status of the lines for rides. Also, the food choices are good and not too pricey, though you can bring in snacks and drinks.

I love this park. I thought it was the best park I have gone to with my son. Disneyland is on our list but SO expensive. I came on the Teacher Appreciation Day but I am now coming back at full price because I loved it so much.

This is a traditional amusement park with a Lego theme, which seemed to make all the difference for kids. The park is very well managed and maintained, extremely clean and tidy (toilets are amazing!). Good choices of food: not just junk, but also some decent options, such as Asian or seafood Early March a great time to visit, as pretty much all the rides were available instantaneously!

We had an amazing visit to LEGOLAND California with our family. With two preteens and a teenager, there was plenty to do for each age group. We were participated in the VIP tour, which gave us a chance to skip the lines and ride together! With the VIP tour, we had a fabulous behind the scenes tour of LEGOLAND California, with a sweet tour guide, who gave us the chance to meet and greet the team of cool people who make and design LEGOS, and we had the chance to build Minilanders, which was a lot of fun! We loved coding the robot, Dr. Heart, and building LEGOS together as a family to help the robot move through different challenges. This park was extremely clean, and charming in every way. From LEGO statues and figures, to the dancing LEGO girls, with hula hoops for children, this park takes full consideration of all ages of families, and there are plenty of interactive experiences in between the incredible rides. We purchased huge refillable cups (highly suggest) for quick refreshments between the rides, and we enjoyed many restaurants, which had everything from fresh Pho soups, egg rolls, salads, and the fresh apple fries were DELISH! This park had so much to see, and do, and there's something for everyone. This is a park that should be enjoyed in at least four days, as there is a water park option that can be added on, too. The waterpark was fantastic, and we went when the weather was a little chilly, so we did not stay as long there. Our children loved the water slides, and the interactive water area. All around, this is a marvelous park that offers something for the entire family!

Would definitely make this trip again. When we first began to plan for spring break for our little ones, we were skeptical about the hours of legoland park and wanting to make sure everyone had a great time. The first day when we arrived, we were greeted with friendly nice staff. Although we were not able to do an early check in, they did allow us to gather our scavenger hunt forms for our kids and begin. we entered the park early, and were excited to see the park was not as crowded as we thought. the kids were able to get on the rides without a long wait. when we were finally contacted about our room, we were able to go and put our belongings up and head back to the park. can't tell anyone enough how i love the fact that the park is very close to the entrance to the park. even though the park closed at 6, they had many activities for the kids that kept them engaged until about 8 or 9 at night. They had a room with a deejay. The hotel staff encouraged the parents to dance and interact with the kids. We were very impressed that the staff of the hotel did everything possible to ensure the hotel was clean, people knew when and where things were and we even saw what appeared to be management picking up trash and cleaning carpets. Two of the best things were the rooms and the set up for our family of 4 and the elevator music. The rooms were clean and loved the fact the kids had their own space and their own television for the night time. The package that we purchased included breakfast which was perfect to the start of our day. They had many options of food for the kids and the staff did not make you feel rushed to eat and leave. we also did dinner at the buffet area, although i didn't feel the food options were the best for the kids, for the adults, it was just right. The staff entertainment, Captain Loot, made it fun for the kids and allowed my husband and myself to enjoy our meal without the kids trying to hurry us. We also visited the heated pool and the kids loved this as well. Overall, we found this trip to be one of the best we have taken in a while. The hotel was kid friendly and appreciated that everything seemed to be centered around the children. They are already asking when are we going again!
