Sharing is caring!

Kids Free October San Diego Promotion Is Back!

So many free things for kids to do in San Diego in October, including Legoland, Sea World, San Diego Zoo and much more.

Kids Free October San Diego promotion is back! This is one of the best ways to save on a family vacation, that we run across this time of the year. Kids can get free tickets to many local attractions, plus there are special promotions for San Diego area hotels, and more. And the best part is that some deals at participating locations are available now and last all October long. See what’s happening below, this is just a start as the participation list of offers is growing We will be sure to update this post if we learn of more participants.

If you are considering a vacation, now through October would be a great time, as you will save a ton if you are traveling with kids. Many of the local hotels offer kids eat free options for the month of October too, as another way to help you save, so be sure to ask about those.

Last summer we took our kids to San Diego for a week, and visited the San Diego Zoo, Legoland, Sea World, and Old Town San Diego. We loved every minute of that trip, and hope to get back soon. It is such a wonderful city to visit for a family getaway. You could make a trip up to Disneyland from there too, but the San Diego area is a great visit all in its own right, and here are some super savings to make that happen!

Here is a list of places we know that are currently offering the Kids Free October promotions:

San Diego Zoo & Safari Park 

• 10 kids (under age 11) FREE with purchase of 1 or 2-Day Adult General Admission ticket
• Valid 10/1/21 – 10/31/21

We visited the zoo in July, and loved it. It is a beautiful walking zoo, and there is an air tram and buses as well. If your kids like animals, this makes for a wonderful day, especially when kids tickets are free!

SeaWorld Park San Diego

  • One free child admission with one adult single day admission
  • Valid through October 31st

My girls really enjoyed SeaWorld too. We loved the shows, and the learning exhibits. I loved that it was a lot more then just theme park rides, and we learned a lot about the sea life there.

LEGOLAND® California Resort

  • One free child ticket with the purchase of select full priced adult tickets
  • Valid now through October 31, 2021

Legoland is great for younger kids. It does have a waterpark onsite (that is an add on feature) but we recommend adding that if you are going on a hot day.
