LEGOLAND California is a 128-acre resort located in Carlsbad. There are three parks, the main park which has shows and rides, the LEGOLAND Water Park and the SEALIFE Aquarium. Most families spread out their visit over 2-3 days, to get the full LEGO experience.

Located 30 minutes north of downtown San Diego, LEGOLAND California is an ideal family-friendly vacation or great staycation for native San Diegans. Perfect for LEGO loving children under the age of 12, you can expect an interactive theme park full of hands-on building, meeting sharks, rays and other tropical fish in the aquarium, and fun in the sun at the water park! Families can save by purchasing LEGOLAND California Hopper Tickets, which bundles the cost of the three parks.

You can also consider buying a Go San Diego Pass! Available through their All-Inclusive, Explorer or Build Your Own options, the main LEGOLAND California amusement park tickets can be combined with other area attractions such as the San Diego Zoo, a Whale Watching Adventure or ‘Sights and Sips’ Cocktail Cruise.

Legoland California Resort and Castle Hotel

1) Legoland California Resort and Castle Hotel

If you want to immerse yourselves in all things LEGO, then you'll love the LEGOLAND California Resort! Located at the park entrance, your stay does not include theme park admission, but as a bonus guests receive early access to the park to beat the crowds. Get ready for the full LEGO experience!

Every inch of this resort is LEGO fun, from daily building contests to character visits at the free breakfast buffet. Guests rooms have separate bunk bed quarters for kids, with fun adventure, pirate, or kingdom themes. This kid-centric resort is a dream come true- a vacation your LEGO fans will never forget!

The LEGOLAND Castle Hotel is a bit more upscale than the resort, and is a newer property. Like the resort, it is conveniently located at the park entrance and offers guests early entry into the park. There is a daily resort fee for Wi-Fi, valet and self-parking, and nightly entertainment.

The castle theme is marked by plastic flags, a drawbridge at the entrance, LEGO blocks in the zero entry pool, and fully themed guest rooms in Knights and Dragons, Royal Princess, and Magic Wizards. Kids' rooms with bunk beds are separated from their parents' rooms by a bathroom, and rooms come standard with flat screen TVs, Keurig coffee makers and minibars. A full-service restaurant on-site offers a hearty breakfast buffet.
