    Be sure to get there when the park opens otherwise the line in to the parking lot is brutal. We didn't find the rides much worth the wait but there is a lot of cool stuff to see if you just walk aroun

    If you're the shopping type, do your shopping in The Big Shop early in the day for best selection and less crowds. They will hold your bags for you free of charge. The late afternoon crowd is crazy!

    Perfect theme park for kids!! It wasn't that busy and we loved that! The kids were able to roam around freely and all the rides were perfect for my 2 and 4 year old. Everything was awesome!! 😃👍

    Probably last time coming to a Legoland as my kids outgrown it. It’s an excellent option for small kids up to 8-9 years old. They had a blast, but they are getting older now for that.

    The Reserve And Ride is worth it. We used the cheap option and it made our day much more enjoyable. Don't forget to reserve your next ride immediately after being scanned.

    Honestly, as an adult I don't understand the attraction. That said, we have taken grandkids and their friends many times and everyone of them just LOVED the place. It's a sure bet for your kids too.

    Take advantage of second day admission for just $15 more. If you have small kids, expect to spend a couple days here. This place is incredible and really geared to the little ones.

    The food is great at this park! Our favorites are the all you can eat pizza and salad bar by the technic coaster and the bbq in the medieval area!

    Many playthings for kids. We as adults enjoyed building with bricks, the Star Wars area, and of course mini-land USA.

    Great interactive play, Legos, and rides for younger children without heavy crowds and lines. The smoked brisket sandwich at the garden cafe was pretty great.

    Legoland, oh Legoland. Why have I waited for so long to visit you. The creativity at this place is just awesome. The collection of hard to find Lego sets are awesome. Everything is AWESOME!

    The water park gets crazy hectic upon opening. Wait 30 - 60 minutes to avoid long line in. There are family sized changing rooms & various locker sizes (go for the large locker at $9 for the day).

    Eat at the Garden Market and get the Brisket Sandwich. Best brisket sandwich in a while, and it comes with chips. Great kids meals too.

    People are very friendly. Few rides are for kids under 36". Only one spot for like 2 year olds. You have to have a full outfit on for every ride in the park & shoes. Water rides only exception.

    MiniLand is amazing, especially the Star Wars area. I loved that the kids could see what Los Angeles and Hollywood looked like in Lego before visiting the real thing! Read more

    Minis lounge in the hotel is great for evening drinks while the kids enjoy a show at 6PM! Great place to unwind after a long day in the park.

    If you live close by, I recommend buying the season pass. But 3 get one free. Open to all parks too! We just enjoyed a day in the water park

    Knights Smokehouse BBQ is pretty good quality food and for a theme park. The meat is BBQed on the premise and they have several flavors of Carlsbad flavored BBQ sauce you can apply yourself.

    Great place for kids. Definitely cheaper and more entertaining than that mouse place. You have to try the Apple Fries

    Look for the coupon that comes in the Lego product catalogs, the coupon is: A free ticket for a child, the purchase of an adult ticket.

    Perfect place for kids from ages 4 to 11. The LEGOLAND Resort Hotel is ideally situated for entrance into Legoland. The park could use some more updated rides.

    If your kid is less than 34 inches tall, they won't be able to ride a lot of the stuff here...but will have a good time nonetheless with all the other distractions in the park.

    It’s easy to stay hydrated plenty of shade while you wait in line. Rides for all heights and ages

    The 2nd day extension is only $15-$20 per person and well worth it especially with a toddler that can't last an entire day at the park.

    Very nice place to spend time with kids. Totally worth it more than one day/visit.

    An excellent theme park, mainly focused on young children. Although there are rides for older children and adults.

    My kids are 7 and 3 and don't move quickly from one attraction to another, so I'm glad our first visit is two days! If we lived here we'd have a membership for sure!

    Great place for kids! If you have children under 10 this place beats out Disneyland.

    ring your towels, weather tends to b chilly even in July, food varieties r limited. My girls age 9 and 5 says it's ok. I think it's a good try mimicking disney land.

    Scale from 1 - 10, service = 2, rides = 3, food = 6 (for theme park they have gluten free and organic) and exhibits = 10.

    This tip is for tourists.The land is a 45 mins outside San Diego you must rent a car don't hire a cab.There are no cabs around the area you have to walk more than 10 miles to reach Carlsbad station

    Download the new LEGOLAND app to explore map, rides and car locator. Plus it's your very own Show guide while at the Park! And it's free!!!

    Like the Zoo and Petco Park, you can bring in containers for free water refills.

    Best for those under the age of 10 for rides. The older crowd will appreciate all the Lego models!

    Great low-key park for families with kids 9 and younger. Sea World = too expensive. San Diego Zoo is great but requires a lot of schlepping.

    Not enough history of legos. Overpriced. Love the mini lego towns. Except san Fransisco and ny are mighty inaccurate.

    The game attendants are generous with the kids. Gave our kids extra chances and larger stuffed animals even if they didn't win.

    Fun for the kids and Lego/Starwars geeks. Impress one of the employees by calling them "Lego bricks"! Because Lego's paranoid like that.

    Like all other amusement parks, food and drinks are exceptionally expensive so bring your own if you want to save some major coin.

    Drop your bags with the bell hop and head to the park early in the day before checking in. Hotel is right at entrance to park.

    Line is very long but well-shaded. Plus they have an area where kids can play with Legos while u wait in line. Then they can just join you when you get close to the front. Or ride other rides nearby.
