Legoland has three theme parks — Legoland California, Sea Life Aquarium and Legoland Water Park. Through Jan. 13, you can see a life-size Lego Star Wars X-wingv fighter on display at Legoland California. The Legoland Water Park, adjacent to the main park, will be expanding next summer with a “Legends of Chima” area.
The Transformers: The Ride-3D, which debuted in 2012, is a must. Through Jan. 4, celebrate “Grinchmas,” which features nightly tree lighting ceremonies, a snow playground and daily celebrity readings of the Dr. Seuss classic How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
Through Jan. 5, the park transforms into “Knott’s Merry Farm,” which features a Christmas tree lighting ceremony with Snoopy, a Christmas crafts village, the holiday ice show It’s Christmas Snoopy, and Santa, of course. In 2014, the park will enhance Camp Snoopy and refurbish Knott’s first major ride, the Calico Mine Ride.
Through Jan. 6, Disneyland is a winter wonderland. See the outdoor, nighttime 28-minute show “World of Color” at California Adventure. Don’t miss the new Cars Land with its home-spun holiday touches or the delightful decor highlighted by a 60-foot Christmas tree and a stunningly lighted Sleeping Beauty’s Castle and Christmas Fantasy Parade in Disneyland.
