Located in the beautiful city of Carlsbad, California (where I hope to live one day), is the home of Legoland California. Legoland has entertained my kiddos for years, from their Brick or Treat to their expanded water park, we always have a blast. However with me having 5 kids theme parks can get pricey, thus we have learned a few ins and out to purchase discounted Legoland tickets. Here are some tips to get discounted tickets for your visit to Legoland.
