We are planning on visiting Legoland the beginning of April, staying at a hotel in Mission Valley San Diego. It's me and my 7 year old son who is a total Lego maniac. The employees at the Lego store up here all know him by name.
First question is whether we should plan on one day or two. We are planning on being in San Diego for about three and a half days. The other things I want to do are to visit Coronado Island (especially the beach), spend some time in the Seaport Village or Gaslamp areas, and maybe take a boat tour around the bay. I'd like to spend two days at Legoland but that would only leave a day and a half for everything else.
Second question is how long should I budget to get there from San Diego? We'd be going on a Monday and maybe Tuesday as well. If we are trying to get there at opening at 10 am, do you think we'll hit a lot of traffic?
I'm also wondering what type of crowds we should expect. Since that is our spring break I'm thinking it's probably spring break for many others as well. This will probably factor into my decision on whether to plan one day or two. Is the park spread out enough that it can handle crowds well?
Also just wondering what the key not to be missed attractions are. We'll definately hit all the coasters.
Thanks for any advice!
