Legoland Snow Days are Just Awesome
Legoland California Holiday Snow days and Winter Nights
Disclaimer: We were invited to attend this event as media.
As much as we love visiting Legoland in the summer, it's an extra special time of the year to go during the Holiday Season for their Snow Days. The winter event is back again this year and is a great addition to the parks regular activities.
Here are a few tips to make your visit Awesome!
- Bring Gloves to play in the snow. The weather will most likely be nice but the snow is real which means it's really cold.
- Bring appropriate footwear. Again we are spoiled in So Cal but no open toed shoes are allowed in the snow areas. pack other footwear for the rest of your days visit.
- Bring a change of clothes. Your kids will get wet if they are like mine and try making snow angels or go sledding.
- Pace yourself. On select days the tree lighting happens and it is so worth sticking around for. The fireworks start right after the tree lighting.
- Last but not least, the local weather forecast might call for sunny temps but there is a 100% chance of snow down main street in Fun Town. Times vary as to when the fluffy stuff falls from the sky, so keep an eye out for it.
Make sure to check out the Tree Lighting Ceremony as the 30 foot tall tree made of over 245,000 bricks is all lit up, it really is spectacular. 11 lucky kids will be chosen through the Legoland Facebook page to light the tree on selected nights in December, how awesome is that?
All the fun ends at the New Years Eve bash on December 31st where there will be live entertainment on three stages by several musical guest including the amazing Grammy Winning Lucky Diaz and the Family Jam Band. Ring in the New Year with a huge LEGO brick ball dropped from over 22 feet in the air followed by fireworks at 6 p.m. getting your kiddos home just in time for bed.
And if you didn't know: Coming February 6, 2016 The LEGO® Movie 4D A New Adventures premiers at the park!
A quick note in regards to the Legoland handicap policy:
Make sure to go to membership services upon entering the park and request your Assisted Access Pass if someone in your party needs it. The way the system works is as follows.
- Go to the exit or Reserve and Ride entrance if offered to board the ride of choice. You will not be given a 'Next Time" boarding time till after you go on your first attraction.
- The ride operator writes down the time you can go to the next ride. At that time or after, you are free to go to your next ride.
- On slow days there is virtually no waiting between rides. During the busier seasons, the wait time can be increased depending on selected rides current wait time.
- My advise, hit busiest rides early and make your requests know to ride operator if you have or need anything. I highly recommend taking or renting a stroller too, the park is quite hilly.
