AAA Discounts

AAA is a loosely associated group of clubs that each cover a small geographical area, usually a single state or portion of a state. Different clubs have different offers, so it’s worth checking both your own AAA state club and the Southern California AAA club websites. To check your own state club, just go to AAA.com and you will be redirected (usually) to your local club. If you haven’t yet set up your online access, you’ll sometimes need to do that to see your local club’s discounts. To check the Southern California site, click here and enter zip code 92008. Once you get to the club home page, click the “Discounts” tab and select “Attractions.”

If a particular discount on the Southern California site involves booking online through the club site, you will usually need to be a Southern California member. Discounts that involve showing your card at the gate are available to any AAA member. If you can get to a Southern California AAA club office, you can usually take advantage of offers that must be bought in person, even if you’re a member of a different AAA club.

Generally AAA members can get a 10% admission discount at the gate, and sometimes discounts on other things such as food or merchandise.

Costco Discounts

Some Costco stores in Southern California carry discounted Legoland tickets from time to time. These are often a great deal, so it’s worth checking with your local store.

Costco.com sometimes offers a very good discount on Legoland California tickets and you don’t have to be a Costco member to buy through their site. (Non-members pay a 5% surcharge, however.) There is a shipping charge when ordering from Costco.com.
