November Sponsor of the Month Review & Giveaway

Thank you to PicPocket Books, October’s Sponsor of the Month, and congratulations to Sarah and Carrie, winners of the digital story apps!

Meet our Sponsor of the Month for November:

Bridget Smith, administrator of Family Adventure Guidebooks and author of The Unauthorized Legoland Guidebook!

When it comes to theme parks, I am a huge fan of both advance planning and Legoland, so you can imagine how glad I am to feature both in this month’s giveaway! I had the chance to read Bridget Smith’s Unauthorized Legoland Guidebook this week, and was very impressed by the depth of content. My family and I have visited Legoland half a dozen times (in fact, Pit Stops for Kids recently published an article on their Premium Play Pass), and yet from the very first pages, I found things I’d never known before about the park.

For instance, did you know there’s a way to visit the park for free (yes, really!)? Were you aware of the number of special events held throughout the year? Do you know what perk awaits Volvo owners? (Yep, this is a tease!)

If you plan to visit Legoland in the coming years, I highly recommend this guide. You’ll save money on admission following Smith’s tips, know your way around the park before you even get there, and make the most of your visit. The guidebook offers detailed information on each and every attraction, what ages it’s intended for, and when to experience it to maximize your day. In addition, you’ll find in-the-know tips from a local perspective on where to stay, dine, and play in Carlsbad, CA. The Unauthorized Legoland Guidebook is available through Lulu, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble in both the downloadable pdf format and hard copy, respectively. (An updated version with information about the newly added water park will be available sometime next year.)
