Thank you for your interest in LEGOLAND California Resort & Merlin Entertainments Group. In line with our commitment to children, LEGOLAND and SEA LIFE Aquarium contribute tickets to local non-profit organizations whose goals are to academically, imaginatively and creatively enrich the lives of children ages 2-12.
LEGOLAND California focuses on the North County San Diego communities, but will also consider requests from these six Southern California counties: greater San Diego, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and Ventura.
There are many worthy children's organizations that deserve support, but unfortunately it is not possible for us to support all of them. Based on our donation criteria, we do not donate to:
- Individuals (see below regarding individual donation requests)
- Incentive programs
- Religious or political purposes
- High school and college programs
- Sports teams
- Social groups
LEGOLAND California Resort is now using DonationXchange, a donation management web portal, to track and manage all community donation requests. Therefore, all requests should be made 30 days in advance of your event and must now be submitted online using this form.
Due to the volume of requests that we receive, we are unable to respond to telephone inquiries and we no longer accept requests sent by email, fax, or regular mail.
Merlin Entertainments, plc and LEGOLAND California support the charity efforts of Merlin's Magic Wand Foundation, which puts the magic back into the childhoods of seriously ill, disabled and disadvantaged children.
Merlin's Magic Wand ensures that these children can enjoy a magical day with their family by providing tickets donated by Merlin Entertainments to one of the many attractions across the world.
They have helped thousands of children and their families by providing tickets and financial support in the form of travel grants.
More than that, where children are too sick to visit us, Merlin's Magic Wand is also developing a number of exciting Taking the Magic to the Children projects, ranging from sensory rooms to specially adapted playgrounds in local hospices and hospitals close to our attractions.
To find out more about Merlin's Magic Wand, the eligibility criteria and how you can apply, please visit www.merlinsmagicwand.org/usa.
Please note that Merlin's Magic Wand works directly with children, families and organizations that will benefit from a day out and is unfortunately unable to provide tickets to assist with fundraising through raffles and auctions.
Merlin's Magic Wand Foundation is a Public Charity and a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. Merlin's Magic Wand, 1 LEGOLAND Drive, Carlsbad, CA 92008

A few friendly reminders:
- Never enter restricted areas. There are certain areas of attractions off limits to guests for safety and security reasons. Posted signs should never be ignored and guests should never go over a fence or around a barricade.
- Be responsible and respectful of other guests. Keep your eyes up while walking. One way to avoid bumping into each other or stationary objects, like trash cans, and to avoid trips and falls is to pay attention to where you are walking at all times.
- Do not take phones or cameras on rides. Guests should be mindful of any ride or attraction guidelines that restrict cell phones and cameras. Even if it is in your pocket, objects can fall out during a ride and hurt someone. And, the phone or camera will most likely be damaged beyond repair.
As an added convenience, make sure to take advantage of our Package Pick-up service. All retail purchases made throughout the Park can be transferred to the Park exit for you to pick up on your way home!
LEGOLAND California offers our visiting parents who have children that meet and don't meet the minimum height restriction the opportunity to do a "Parent Swap" at any ride that parents are allowed to ride. All members of the party are required to wait in line together. When you reach the front, let the ride operator know of your intention, so that he can accommodate you. When the first ride is over, the parents may then switch places and the other parent can then ride with the older child.

Outside food and drinks are not permitted in the Park and we therefore do not offer designated picnic areas, however, we do have grassy areas just outside the Park gates.
We do not provide specific discounts for pregnant guests. Also, we are unable to give you a specific answer as to which rides a pregnant person would be able to ride due to varying medical issues with each pregnancy and the differences with each ride regarding the loading and unloading procedures, speed, abrupt stops, amount of twists, turns, etc.
Most coaster-type rides post warnings "Not recommended for pregnancy" and although other rides do not post the same warning, it is always advisable to comply with your doctor's recommendations. The rides in the Park that are not recommended for pregnancy are Sky Patrol, Sky Cruiser, Coastersuarus, BIONICLE Blaster, TECHNIC Coaster, Knights' Tournament, Dragon Coaster, Splash Battle, Captain Cranky's Challenge, Fun Town Fire Academy, Beetle Bounce and Kid Power. However, even though the other rides do not post the same warning, there are other factors that may need to be considered such as moving platforms, lap bar configurations, safety restraints and evacuation routes in case of mechanical malfunctions.
Being able to fit within the restraints comfortably and safely is a requirement set by each of the ride manufacturers and a key factor for the safety of our guests. Therefore, if the safety belt or lap bar does not secure the rider in the seat properly, you would be asked to exit the ride prior to its start up.
Guest safety is very important to us and we hope that all guests are able to enjoy as much of the Park possible. We value your patronage and want to express our congratulations on the upcoming birth of your new baby.
