$270 is insane. The site has a discount of $84.99, but that's for all tickets age 3+. I'm assuming the buy one adult, get a free kid ticket doesn't count for that. $217 is still less than the cost of flying out the next day and I can use Marriott points to book the room for free. Of course, we have to rent a car, too. Ugh.
Are you staying at the Legoland Hotel? My 2 older kids are dying to do that, we might have to break from Disney and do 2 nights there in one of our next trips. If I wait too long the oldest will get to old to care about Legoland, it’s nicw to still see him excited about it.

Did you look at the tickets that include the water park? The one day tickets with the water park option look to be $125.
I’ll have to double check- probably tomorrow. I hope I did that. I know it isn’t a huge difference, but I like $217 better than $270!
Ok, I was dying of curiosity so I just checked on my phone and I did previouy accidentally price out the tickets that include the water park. So it is $217 for 2 people. I’m very glad to be wrong! They don’t give you the pre-purchase discount that takes the tickets to $85, but it’s much better than when I thought they actually raised the price on the tickets. I feel like I owe Legoland and apology or something lol! That’s the second thing today on these boards I’ve gotten worked up about that turned out to be nothing - I need to chill and lurk or something :worried:!

I have a reservation for the legoland hotel, but I can cancel it since I paid the change fee and stay at a nearby Marriott on points. On the other hand, the legoland hotel will be more fun than a generic Marriott.

    I think staying at the LegoLand hotel would be a lot of fun, if you can swing it I would keep it! I looked just for fun last year since we already had our Disney resorts all booked when we went to legoland and the only rooms they had left were over $1000 a night. I presume they price yield and were almost full, but holy cow :eek:. I didn't check this year.

    Keep the Legoland hotel! It looks like so much fun! If you stay there, you can literally walk to the park, so it's easy to run back to your room. It saves you the parking fee at the park, and gets you in an hour early (definitely a plus since no free FP for Legoland). Plus, breakfast is included, saving on the cost of food for the trip.

    Additionally, there are a bunch of fun activities for hotel guests at night. The theme park closes fairly early, so if you stay at the hotel, you'll have a bunch of cool Lego activities to stay busy at night.

    Save your Marriott points - they can be used anywhere.

    So, just to walk people through the process of BOGO tickets:

    Go to the website and try to check out with a one-day ticket on the day you want. It will default to the "saver" ticket price, which for my date was something like $84 or $87. This won't be the price you pay.

    Look up at the tabs and click on "promotions." Enter the code 189900; this is the Honest Kids BOGO number. The website will redirect you to a different single day tickets page (that isn't apparent when you just to to the website), which should then show one-day tickets for $99.99. Enter the number of adult tickets you want, and a child companion ticket will automatically be added to your cart for each adult ticket.

    With taxes, that works out to $217 for two adults and two children.

    When I went in April 2018, I did some sort of promo. Not sure if it was BOGO or half off or what. But the total for a family of four (2 adults 2 kids) was $204. Very close to the price now of $217. I thought $51pp was a fair price for the park. And now there's even more stuff, so $54.25 still seems fair.

    No, that is not as good as $40, to be sure. But I remember the reason I went ahead and did the BOGO price instead of the PTA thing was simply because I didn't feel like dealing with the hassle of the PTA ticket. Don't you have to pick your exact date? I didn't want to do that either. So there's some value right there.

    Yes, you did have to pick your day which was a bit of an annoyance. We did know our day, but I was concerned about weather. We had to wait to buy them until I at least had a preliminary forecast that the day wouldn't be a washout. I was also a little apprehensive about the PTA thing, but so many people had done it I took the chance and it worked. So this time I was feeling fine about it, not worried about that, and it's gone. I had thought we would still have to pick our days, thank you for pointing out that we don't! I hadn't noticed that when I went through and priced them. That is one nice benefit of having to pay a little more :-) I can live with $217, maybe I should buy them now before they go up again haha!

    Very good points. The hotel does look very cool and my kids will enjoy all the activities.

    Thanks so much. This will help save a lot of money for us.

    I found Leogland tickets to be cheaper on AAA's website. Undercovertourist also sells then and they worked out to be $10 more then the BOGO offer mentioned above. I haven't purchased my tickets yet for next month so I don't know if either AAA or UCT requires you to pick a specific date.

    Thanks for the info. AAA in my area (not sure if they are different prices or not but the website directed me to the NE AAA instead of the south where my search took me) was $246 for 2 adults and 2 kids, the BOGO was $216.97. Neither made me choose dates. I think I should probably just buy our tickets through the BOGO now for mid-June, I don't think I'm going to find cheaper and it would stink to find out that went up or something.

    Just back from a weekend at Legoland. We went 6/1 with the BOGO tickets for theme park only, not water park. A bit after 5pm most of the rides shut down for distant thunder/lightning, which was odd because it was sunny at the park. Very disappointing, but we made the best of it, spending time in the shops and looking at miniland (which was amazing with the attention to detail).

    Finally, around 6:25 the rides did open back up, so my older ones were able to go on Coastersaurus, but Battle for Bricksburg never reopened and some rides took a really long time to reset (like the Safari ride my 3-year-old wanted to go on again). Park close was 7pm.

    Legoland has a guarantee that if most of the rides shut down due to weather for 90 minutes, you can get free return tickets. I thought the shutdown was about 70 minutes (though really closer to 90 with the reboot time), so we were SOL. But then a Model Citizen (the Legoland term for employees) told us the return guarantee was in effect. So we stopped by guest services on the way out and were given 4 complimentary tickets that included theme park AND water park! I thought that was fantastic because our original tickets didn't even have water park access.

    Anyway, we changed our plans to return 6/2, primarily for the water park. It was good, but we ended up leaving early because, again, distant lightning shut down all the slides around 2:30pm. Just something to keep in mind if traveling in summer storm season. Do the outdoor rides and water slides earlier in the day, if possible.

    Bottom line: for $217 (plus $46 for two days of parking), we got 2 days at Legoland for 4 people.

    So, I waited until the last minute to buy these for reasons unknown, and now when I try both the link on the previous page and the promotional code someone posted a few posts above I am only given the option for the park and water park tickets, not just the park tickets. They say either one, but when I click through it only gives me the $125 combo ticket price. Anyone else seeing this, am I doing something wrong or do you think they changed the promo? This stinks, I should have just bought the tickets when we first figured out that the original discount for the FL PSA (or whatever it was, I'm too lazy to double check right now) wasn't going to work.

    It looks like they changed it. I googled and entered several BOGO codes, and each time I was taken to the Theme Park + Water Park ticket. I went through the exact steps I used to buy my tickets a month ago, and the $99.99 theme park only option isn't coming up for me this time. You're right - it stinks! Still cheaper than Disney, but not nearly such a good bargain as before.

    I’m seeing that, too. That’s ridiculous. At this point, I’m not sure what to do. We will never go to the water park. I have a promo code from the LEGO catalog which has the bogo offer. I’m out of town (actually at Disney), but I’ll check it out when I get home and see if it forces me to get the combo tickets.

    ETA: I can get the tickets through my local AAA for $154, so I might do that if the other promo code I have won’t work.

    I have the coupon off of the Honest Kids juice boxes, and it says I could use it at the gate. But I have to assume it will only be good on a combo ticket there also. This really stinks, I'm so mad at myself for not just buying these a few weeks ago when we first discussed it here. we leave for Disney tomorrow and were going to LegoLand on the 20th, so if I don't buy them tonight I will have to find a business center to print them at at Disney or buy them at the gate. My DH is going to be so irritated with me - he had a LegoLand deal a while ago (I don't know what it was) and I told him not to worry, I had a better one. Now the better one is gone and the backup better one is gone. I don't really want to pay $400 for us to go to Legoland for a day, but the kids will be really bummed if we don't go. Or I guess even at the gate we could probably pay the $270 and not use the water park at all. So annoying.

    I just went to the webpage Legoland.com/honestkids and it looks like you should be able to use it on either type of ticket, but when you go to purchase there is only one option. I may try to call them once we get to Florida, and take a screen shot of the page that says 1 day admission to Legoland Florida park or to Legoland Florida Park + waterpark and see if that helps at the gate if calling doesn't work. I guess worse case is the $270 price.

    I just dug out a copy of the Lego magazine (free at the Lego store) and there's a coupon in it for the BOGO offer. California is just the hopper, but Florida has the park only option or park+water option. You might want to swing by the Lego store in Disney Springs, pick up a couple copies of the magazine, and use the coupons in there. Granted, I think my magazine was the March issue, but I'm assuming it's the same wording in the current one. It does look like the coupon there says valid at the gate (not online or phone), and you'd need one coupon per BOGO, but as the magazines are free, picking up 2 shouldn't be a big deal.
