What do Legoland full price tickets cost?
As of Summer, 2018 the full-price Adult's ticket (ages 13+) at Legoland's turnstiles for one day's admission to Legoland California is $109. For a child's ticket (age 3--12,) the cost of a one day ticket is $103. (Note: that price is just for ONE day at Legoland Park...WITHOUT admission into the Legoland Water Park or the Sea Life Aquarium.)
OUCH! The cost of a family outing is really going to add up if you pay full price! On this page, we're going to discuss ways to slash that full-price bill and get your family the savings it needs to be able to get in on the fun!
Discount 1.) Legoland.com's website discounts: For example, purchasing Legoland tickets for 2 days instead of one will save money per-day.
Discount 2.) ARES Travel discount tickets: ARES Travel is a company which has permission from Legoland to sell Legoland tickets at discount prices.
Discount 3.) Southern California CityPass Card: New for 2015! If you're going to Legoland California, SeaWorld San Diego, Disneyland Park and the Disney's California Adventure Park, then this multi-park discount pass can save you some significant money.
Discount 4.) AAA Legoland discounts: Belonging to the American Automobile Association can get you discounts at Legoland and other Southern California family attractions.Discount 5.) Costco.com Legoland Discounts: This famous retailer's website frequently has a special deal for Legoland tickets going on.
Discount 6.) Merchant coupon specials: From time to time, Legoland teams up with area stores or restaurants to issue special coupons.
Discount 8.) Legoland Annual Passes: For guests who are planning to return to Legoland again and again, it's only logical to consider purchasing a "membership" at Legoland. ("Membership" is Legoland's special term which means "annual pass.")
9.) Other Discounts: In addition to discounts available to the general public, Legoland offers good discounts to members of the military, preschools and to home-schooling families. Also, holding a Legoland birthday party is a good way to get a group discount. In this section, you'll discover the details of these programs.
Discount #1: Legoland.com's print-at-home discounts
Mobile device tickets now available, tooLegoland offers several types of discount tickets on their website. (1.) MULTI-DAY TICKETS: It's cheaper per-day to purchase a 2 Day Legoland ticket than a regular 1-day admission ticket. (And, when they're offered, it's cheaper to purchase a 5-day ticket or a Play Pass for unlimited visits instead of separate 1-day tickets.) (2.) MULTI-PARK DISCOUNTS: It's also cheaper to purchase tickets to more than one attraction at the Legoland Resort. There are now a total of 3 attractions: the original Legoland theme park, the SeaLife Aquarium, and the Legoland water park (which does NOT have its own separate entrance; you MUST have a valid ticket for the theme park PLUS a water-park extra-fee ticket.)
Legoland's tickets can be confusing, because you need just the right kind of ticket to see EVERYTHING at Legoland Park. Make sure that your ticket is going to be valid at either EVERY attraction...or at least the attractions that you want most. The several types of Legoland tickets are: (1) Legoland Theme Park only, which is the huge, must-see attraction; (2) Legoland plus Sea Life Aquarium; (3) Legoland and Sea Life Aquarium plus Legoland Water Park. If you goof up and buy the wrong ticket, you can always add-on any extras once you reach the park...although by then, you will have missed any discounts that come with buying an all-inclusive ticket.
Before you head to the park, always check Legoland California's online prices. That's the only way you'll get the best deals that the park offers. Here's a link to Legoland's own current ticketing and promotions page where you can compare & contrast the park's own online discounts. On the rest of this page, we'll talk about competing Legoland deals from other vendors, as well as the benefits of getting a Legoland annual pass or membership.
Redeeming your Legoland California tickets after online purchases: You may print out your tickets on your own home printer and head to the entrance gates. Or, you may show your email receipt right from your mobile device. The receipt contains a barcode which may be scanned right at the front gate, as well. Either way, you may skip standing in line at the ticket booths.
LEGOLAND FLORIDA'S PRICES ARE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT THAN THE CALIFORNIA LOCATION! If you'd like to check the price of tickets for central Florida's Legoland theme park, here's a link to the Legoland Florida ticket deals.
Discount #2: ARES Travel discount Legoland TicketsARES Travel is a company which has Legoland's permission to sell their theme park's tickets at a discount. ARES Travel has an outstanding record with the Better Business Bureau; if it did not, then Legoland wouldn't allow the company this privilege. ARES Travel also handles the ticketing for a number of California cities' convention & visitors bureaus...and even the State of California's official tourism website!
When comparison-shopping, it's hard to say exactly which company is going to have the best discount offer for Legoland tickets at any given time. At the precise moment you're ticket-hunting, it may or may not be ARES Travel. But, as we've observed ARES's prices over the last few years, We've noted that they're usually one of the lowest-priced options.
If you would like to find out about current Legoland ticket & hotel package prices available with this company, please see the ARES Travel.com's Legoland Ticket Discounts page.
Legoland Discounts #3: CityPass discount programVisitors to California often enjoy visiting SeaWorld San Diego, Disneyland Park and the Disney California Adventure park...after they visit Legoland, of course! If your family wants to visit ALL of these world-class theme parks for a terrific discount price, then you'll want to investigate the SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA CITYPASS program.
In 2018, the price for a CityPass is $367 for ages 10+ (or $337 for ages 3 thru 9.) For this price, you'll receive 1 day at Legoland, 1 day at SeaWorld San Diego, and 3 days at Disneyland and Disney's California Adventure. (This is a Disney Hopper pass, so you can go back and forth between Disneyland and D.C.A. as much as you wish during your 3 days there.) You'll save over $120 in ticket fees per CityPass, which is one of the best discounts you will find (especially for Disneyland, since discounts to that particular theme park are nearly non-existent.)
Our website isn't affiliated in any way with CityPass...but we do recommend this program. We have used the CityPass program and found it to be a very good way to save money.
To learn more about the CityPass--Southern California, you may use the following link to check out the CityPass.com website where you'll discover the complete details about this popular multi-park discount plan.
Legoland Discounts #4 -- AAA Member Savings
However, if you forget to plan ahead, whipping out your AAA membership card at the Legoland ticket booth will give you at least SOME type of a discount. By showing your AAA card at the ticket window, you'll get an automatic 10% savings on all the tickets that you're buying. At the current full price of Legoland adult tickets, this means that simply by showing your AAA card at the ticket booth, you'll save over $9 per person!
Occasionally, the AAA will offer deeper discounts for special periods. These discounts can sometimes vary depending on which state you live. Be sure to check at your local AAA office or at the AAA Website, www.aaa.com to see if any specials are in effect at the time you plan to purchase your tickets. Any tickets with steep discounts usually need to be picked up at your local AAA office (rather than be purchased at Legoland Park.)
Savings #5: Legoland California Discount Tickets at Costco.comYou can usually find Legoland discount tickets for sale at Costco.com. These discount prices are truly money-saving; exactly HOW much you save will depend on the offer you choose.
The down side: you may have to pay a small surcharge if you're not a Costco member, and---member or not---you'll need to add an extra fee for shipping.
If you'd like to check to see if there's a current Costco special going on right now, you may use the following link to see Costco.com's Legoland Discount Tickets page. If nothing is listed, then it means there aren't any current specials.
Note: Costco specials come and go year-round. If you don't find one today, visit Costco's website closer to the time of your visit and you MIGHT find a special then.
Legoland discount tickets at Costco stores: Sometimes you'll also be able to purchase Legoland tickets directly from a Costco membership warehouse, which eliminates the need to wait for your tickets to be shipped to you. These are not always available in the store year-round, and they're not available at all Costco stores. But, if you'll be shopping at your local Costco store anyway, then it's not much of an inconvenience for you to check to see if they have Legoland tickets in stock.
Legoland Discounts #6--Merchant Coupons
Legoland coupons at stores and restaurantsFrom time to time, Legoland teams up with local stores or restaurants to offer special Legoland coupons and deals. You can't depend on finding Legoland coupons when you need them, because (1) there isn't always a coupon deal going on, and (2) when a store or restaurant runs out of their supply of coupons, then they're simply gone and there won't be any more coming. Nevertheless, when you can find a coupon special in a local store, they're often very good coupons.
Are merchant discount coupons available ONLY in Southern California? Sometimes yes...and sometimes, no. Arizona is one state where residents can usually pick up some Legoland discount tickets BEFORE leaving for San Diego! For example, every year, Arizona residents can go to Fry's Supermarkets to purchase discount tickets. Fry's grocery stores don't carry the Legoland discount tickets all year long, but when a promotional period rolls around, you may purchase these tickets in advance and use them later, since they're good for the entire length of time specified in the offer.
Fry's sister-stores in California...Ralph's Markets...sometimes have Legoland discounts, as well. Like Fry's, the Ralph's Legoland tickets aren't on sale all year long, but only during specific promotional periods.
Legoland Discounts #7--Credit Union Discount TicketsIf you belong to a Credit Union in California, you should know that a number of different CU's offer discounted Legoland Tickets! Each different Credit Union has its own method of getting and paying for the tickets. Some credit union websites have a link to your CU's own secret page of the Legoland website...and then you may purchase your tickets online from Legoland at a lower price than what's offered to the general public. Others may have a mail-in or walk-in system for picking up your discounted tickets. In addition, you may find employer or professional associations offering discounted tickets, as well...so if you're a member, check to see if tickets are one of your perks.
Legoland California & Florida Discounts #8 --- "Go Card" multi-attraction discount cards
San Diego Go Card
How does the San Diego Go Card work? There are about 55 member attractions who accept the San Diego Go Card. You are free to pick and choose from among them, deciding which attractions you'll visit, and which you'll skip. You simply figure out how many days you'll want to tour San Diego attractions. Then, you purchase a 1, 2, 3, 5 or 7-day San Diego Go Card for that period of time. Once you pre-pay for your card, then you simply show the card at the entrance to each attraction you visit, and you're admitted without any further charge.
Obviously, this benefits the tourist who lingers less time at each attraction. Go-getters who tour 2 or 3 attractions in one day are going to save more money than those who linger at only one attraction for that same length of time. Nevertheless, this card is a great money-saver for anyone who has a long list of San Diego attractions they'd like to see...but never thought that they could afford it. Especially for older visitors who would love to see the Legoland Mini-Cities (a favorite attraction for adults,) this card may make the difference in whether or not you actually get to see the mini-cities. An adult bringing a child for an all-day outing is much more apt to spend the money for a regular Legoland ticket than someone who wishes merely to "pop in" for an hour.
List of included attractions: The list of member attractions is long, so they won't all be listed here. Most major (and many minor) attractions are on the list, including the very popular San Diego Zoo and San Diego Wildlife Park, in addition to Legoland theme park. Knott's Berry Farm theme park, Knott's Soak City Water Park, and Wild Rivers Water Park are on the list of options you may choose. Also included are various tours---harbor tours, Temecula wine country tours, Tijuana tours, and San Diego city tours. Still other popular attractions...like the Belmont Boardwalk amusement park and Scripps Aquarium...are part of the Go Card program. If you'd like to learn more, you may use the following link to view the Go San Diego Card official website.
Legoland Discounts--Los Angeles Go Card
Universal Studios Hollywood, Knott's Berry Farm and Six Flags Magic Mountain are other major theme parks included as options on this attractions pass. Also included are Hollywood tours, movie studio toursthe lovely Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, tours of the Queen Mary, the Los Angeles Zoo, harbor tours, many museums, and more. Several San Diego attractions are included in the LA Go Card (such as San Diego Harbor excursions and Belmont Amusement Park wristbands) for visitors who want to sample attractions in both cities. Just like the San Diego Go Card, this LA discount program is purchased by the number of days you wish to tour. You may squeeze in as many (or as few) of the listed attractions as you wish. For further information, you may view the Go Los Angeles Card website.
Legoland Discounts--Orlando, Florida Go Card
In addition to Legoland Florida, there are several other Orlando attractions included with the Orlando Go Card. Gatorland is particularly popular, and is a must-see attraction for anyone who is awed by the sight of these fabulous reptiles. Kennedy Space Center is another can't-miss attraction for anyone interested in the history of space flight. The kids in your group will enjoy Ripley's Believe-It-or-Not, Fun Spot amusement park, WonderWorld and miniature golf. For the adventurers in your group, there are several boat tours in the Florida swamplands and grasslands for the adventuresome. And city tours are also available, as well---Orlando, Cocoa Beach and Miami.
In other words, for one price, you may turn your discount vacation into exactly the right type of trip tailor-made for your family! Buying a comprehensive Go Card pass is a good way to see MANY attractions---and each one at a discount! Our family has used the Orlando Go Card and we managed to save money even though an illness forced us caused us to skip using one of the days (out of our 7-day pass.) In addition, the savings allowed us to see some of the "lesser" attractions on our bucket list...without spending any more money than we'd budgeted for the major sites.
LEGOLAND FLORIDA IS ALSO FEATURED IN A CHEAPER GO-CARD PLAN. If the full Go Card experience doesn't fit your needs, there's another discount plan which would take you only 2 days to enjoy. For only $99, you can visit Legoland, Gator World AND WonderWorld...which are 3 must-do attractions on any kid's wish list. To discover the details of this offer, please see the "Package Deals" page of the Orlando Go Card website, and look for the "Orlando Family Fun Pass" option.
Savings #9: Legoland Annual PassesIf you're planning on making repeated visits to the park, then you may enjoy using one of Legoland's annual pass programs. (On the Legoland website, you'll see the annual passes called "Memberships to Legoland.") Annual passes---whether to Legoland or to ANY theme park---are the absolute best values for families who love to visit theme parks regularly.
The Legoland "Membership" annual passes are true ANNUAL pass good for a full 12 months from the date of purchase. (Legoland's Play Pass is a SEASON pass...which is good through the end of December and NOT for a full 12 month period.)
Merlin Entertainment Group multi-attraction membership: In addition, if you'd like a membership to the Sea Life Aquarium & Legoland Water Park, as well, there's a another option--the "Merlin Properties membership." This membership includes admission to the Legoland Discovery Centers, Sea Life Aquariums and Madame Tussaud's locations in the USA (including the Hollywood location), along with Legoland Florida.If you travel to other parts of the country, this pass could benefit you.
Benefits of the Legoland Memberships (aka Annual Passes): These memberships offer some very nice benefits---
1.) No park black-out dates
2.) Free parking and special in-park discounts
3.) Free Legoland newsletter and e-news
4.) Legoland Children's Magazine with purchase of a Child's membership; limit one free magazine per household.
The Merlin Annual Pass "Membership" costs $199, but it can be a money-saver for frequent Legoland visitors. If you are going to go to Legoland several times throughout the year, the free parking and extra admission fees to SeaLife and the Legoland Water Park add up, and can end up making this the better value. In addition, the Merlin Annual Pass has a "monthly payment" plan available (while the standard membership must be paid in full at the time of purchase.) The ability to make interest-free payments is a definite bonus for fitting your family's "love of Legoland" into your budget.
For further Legoland California annual pass/membership information, please see the Membership/Annual Pass page of the Legoland.com website.
#10: Other types of Legoland Discounts
Military, Local Schools and Birthday Party discounts to Legoland
1.) Military Discounts: Legoland California would like to give a special discount to those who serve our country...and their family members, too. Therefore, Legoland offers Military Discounts for active members of the armed services. ..along with National guard, veterans, retirees and their dependents. You'll have a choice of 1, 2 or 3 day tickets...priced at $69.99, $79.99 and $84.99 respectively (in 2018.)
You'll need to visit the Legoland website's Military Discount page first: The Legoland website will explain the 3 tickets to you more clearly, plus the rules for redeeming their military discount offers. To check out this information, here's the Military Appreciation page from the Legoland California website.
2.) Legoland California & Legoland Florida on Facebook and Twitter: You can get up-to-the-minute news about Legoland by becoming a "fan" of the park's Twitter and Facebook pages. The good news? You'll learn more about special events and upcoming attractions at the park than you ever knew before. The bad news? So far, Legoland hasn't really gotten into the swing of holding very many free-ticket contests and announcing discounts via Twitter & Facebook...like some of the other theme parks have. But, just in case Legoland should come out with a surprise perk for their fans, it wouldn't hurt to sign up to follow them if you're a Facebook or Twitter enthusiast.
3.) Carlsbad Schools fundraiser day: Legoland is a "good citizen" in its neighborhood, and assists the Carlsbad Unified School District in raising money for its programs. Every year, Legoland holds a "cheap ticket" day for local children. This date is usually some time in April each year. For this one day, guests holding a Carlsbad Schools discount ticket may enjoy the park for an extremely discounted price. The special tickets aren't ever sold at Legoland or mentioned on the park's website, so you must pre-purchase them before you arrive. If you don't have to have a child within the school district to get information about them, you may purchase these tickets in several other places. They're on sale at the Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce, the Carlsbad Visitor's Bureau, and sometimes other locations, as well. A 2nd event benefitting the Encinitas Union School District is usually held each year, as well.
Birthday Party reservations: You must give at least 2-weeks notice for your birthday party discount. If you simply show up at the ticket booths, the party discount is not available...and you can't get access to Legoland's party pavilions at the last moment, either. Payment is due at the time you book the party.
3 themes for the Legoland Birthday Parties are available. They are Lego Ninjago; Lego (Girl)Friends; and Lego Celebration (featuring traditional Lego characters.)
Here's a link to the Birthday Party page where you'll find complete information!
