Happy Fall - Take advantage of the BOGO Ticket offer for LEGOLAND® California Resort, SEA LIFE® Aquarium through Reserve Direct.


Sometimes you just need a day trip to an entertaining place with special people to remember making memories doesn't have to be as tough as it is always feared to be.

One of our favorite places to visit in Southern California is LEGOLAND® California Resort and SEA LIFE® Aquarium. It has been a few years since my dad (Papou - Greek for Grandpa), who is 76 years old, has been and we wanted to take him back for a revisit.

I love technology and everything you can do with the ease of having the internet at your fingertips. Given the opportunity to book through Reserve Direct, we instantly realized how easy it was to book our tickets and make our way to LEGOLAND® California Resort and SEA LIFE® Aquarium.

Right now Reserve Direct has an exclusive offer for LEGOLAND® California Resort + SEA LIFE® Aquarium tickets.

Kicking off fall, Reserve Direct is offering a BOGO FREE kids ticket with an extended usage date! When you buy an adult LEGOLAND® California Resort + SEA LIFE® Aquarium hopper ticket, you get a kids ticket FREE. Max out this deal for your whole family and maybe some friends too since 15 tickets per order can be purchased.

SCORE!


It was an easy and cost-effective way to share my experience with my four-year-old, nine-year-old and 76 year old grandpa. Not to mention they provide quality insight on everything there is to do in the parks! That’s why I want to share my own booking experience through Reserve Direct along with our own handy tips and must-dos from the perspective our family.

Just three days before our LEGOLAND® adventure, my Dad and I booked the tickets together. At 76 years old he is pretty internet and technology savvy, so when I saw a smile on his face as he told me how easy it was, I knew I was not the only one!

LEGOLAND® California Resort + SEA LIFE® Aquarium Family Day

We made it!

At the entrance I scanned our tickets via my mobile email. Simple!

I made a brick stop at the customer service so that I could get the disability assistance pass for my son with Autism.  (Want to know more about the pass that can come in handy for all disabilities and even our older loved ones... please visit here to read more on the assistance pass. )

We have been to LEGOLAND® California Resort and SEA LIFE® Aquarium many times, it's one of our favs, so to have my dad choose what he wanted to do with the kids was really fun to watch. A lot of you know that we lost my mom when I was pregnant with my first and Papou has really stepped up to fill both their shoes and be the best Grandparent he can be to all his 6 grand-kids. To treat him to a day where he is the Master Builder is needed here and there, and to save money doing things like this go a long way for us.

It was so cool to see the spooky side of things around LEGOLAND® California and the Brick or Treat decor that was up. Check out this spider that we just could not get enough of. Mikey thought it was hilarious to run under and sneak away from the giant creepy lingering eight legged fright!



On our way out to the SEA LIFE® Aquarium entrance (you can enter directly from LEGOLAND® California) we decided to stop by the kids roller coaster. It is pretty mild but at the same time I wanted my 76yo dad to make sure he was comfortable riding it! He said "Let's ride it" so we did. It was so great to have my kids sit together while I sat with my dad and screamed with laughter. We have not done that in over 20 years. We got off the ride and he told my daughter that the reason things like this are so special is because he used to ride the same bigger rides with me that I ride with her. To see that we were able to ride together and one day she would do the same for me when I am older, that was the magic and most amazing thing to experience with him.

After a full day of fun inside LEGOLAND® California Resort and SEA LIFE® Aquarium I asked everyone what their take on the day was, their favorites and what tips or info we could share about our visit.

Here are some LEGOLAND® California Resort and SEA LIFE® Aquarium highlights and must do's from my family's perspective...

The kids...
* Spending the day at LEGOLAND® California Resort with Papou



* Showing Papou their favorites in Mini Land - always fun to see.

* They love that there is a driving school for each age limit. They were both able to drive in their over 6yo and under 6yo driving attractions - super autism friendly for my son as they help as needed - see video here.

* The Ninjago ride. It is pretty amazing. Using 4D realization each guest gets to use hand movements to throw Ninja stars to defeat and win... keep practicing to up your game score!


Papou...
* Being there to see the kids laugh and be so happy rising rides with him. At 76yo he's a trooper and says yes to the kids...always..


* Showing the kids a puffer fish at the SEA LIFE® Aquarium and telling them the story of how he got pierced by one in the hand many years ago. Yes he showed them the poke hole of where it happened. Ha!


* Trying grannies apple fries...that's all you need to know, just try them or a few orders of them...seriously he loved them too and made to sure to get all the whip cream out!

* Ninjago - he is an engineer so this was a dream for him to experience and in his first go at it, yup, beat us all out on his score by a lot! Go dad!

* Las Vegas Strip inside of Mini Land - he loves how it reminds him of how much fun he and my mama would have for years visiting Las Vegas. Memories he holds on to.

Master Builder Mom...
* Loved how easy it was to scan my tickets directly from Reserve Direct

* Start to the right side of the park - less crowded as most guests just naturally start to the left.

* Download the app for wait times, specials, 411 on the the happenings throughout the day and BOGO free Pumpkin Crepe. So good!



* Get the grannies apple fries and enjoy..remember to share, I know it's hard to, they are so good



* Take small breaks in fun places that keep kids shaded and cool while you take a breath. A good spot to do this is in Heartlake City Horse Stables and Ninjago World where there is a lot of share, food and plenty to still do.

* Kids eat free - at Pizza Pasta Buffet kids eat free with paying adult after 3:30pm. Wow!! We use this each visit if possible since by that time everyone is super hungry.
