Have you ever been to LEGOLAND California? It’s such a fun experience for LEGO lovers of all ages. From Duplo-inspired blocks and intricate city replicas to LEGO-themed rides and delicious food, LEGOLAND has something for everyone. And to top it all off, you can always get discount tickets and hotel accommodations with my friends at Get Away Today. They’re currently offering a LEGOLAND 2nd Day Free special, so I’ll tell you all about LEGOLAND and why you should consider it for your next vacation.
LEGOLAND California is open year-round* and even has its own Water Park. Today I’ll share some of the experiences you can expect to find at LEGOLAND, and how to get the best deals.
LEGOLAND Rides and Attractions
LEGOLAND is geared toward guests ages 2 – 12, but it truly is fun for all ages. Anyone can appreciate the themed rides and attractions, regardless of age. I’ll break down some of the rides and their height requirements so it’s easier to plan a LEGOLAND vacation.

A vacation wouldn’t be complete without delicious dining options. You’ll find a variety of good eats in LEGOLAND that you won’t want to miss.
- Ninja Kitchen – Visit this vendor for fresh banh-mi sandwiches. It’s located right outside NINJAGO – The Ride.
- Knights’ Smokehouse BBQ – Enjoy Texas barbecue in Carlsbad at the Smokehouse. Located in Castle Hill, meats are slow-cooked to perfection in an all-wood smoker.
- Granny’s Apple Fries – Have you heard about Granny’s Apple Fries at LEGOLAND? Wondering where to find Granny’s Apple Fries at LEGOLAND? Arguably the best treat in LEGOLAND, these Apple Fries are cooked and sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. The whole thing is topped with whipped, vanilla cream. Find this LEGOLAND exclusive dessert in Castle Hill.
- Pizza & Pasta Buffet – Find family-friendly favorites such as pasta, pizza and salad at this buffet. You can build your own dish for one all-you-care-to-eat price. The buffet is located in LEGOLAND’s Imagination Zone.
There are two LEGOLAND Resort hotels located right on the theme park’s property: LEGOLAND Hotel and LEGOLAND Castle Hotel. Both are steps away from the park entrance, making it so easy to get to and from your room throughout the day. It’s perfect for those traveling with family members who need a nap to recharge before venturing out for more fun.
A perk of staying at either of the LEGOLAND Resort hotels is early theme park admission each day of your stay. You’ll be able to enjoy rides before the park opens to the public, allowing you to fit more awesome fun into your day. Rides open for early admission include the following:
- Safari Trek
- Fairy Tale Brook
- Mia’s Riding Camp
- The LEGO Movie Experience
- NINJAGO 4D at the LEGO Show Place
Additionally, you can enjoy a full breakfast buffet each morning with a huge variety of foods. The theming at each hotel is truly awesome, offering LEGO play areas, daily scavenger hunts, LEGO-themed pools, nightly parties and even surprise dance parties in the elevators.
Every room at the LEGOLAND Resort hotels features LEGO theming. Each standard guest room includes a darling kids’ bedroom with bunk beds, a daybed, a TV and an area designated for LEGO play.
Get Away Today also partners with a number of off-property hotels in Carlsbad. You can view the options online HERE, or call an agent at 855-GET-AWAY.
