Four days in SD Area, itinerary help.

My wife and I will be flying into San Diego this Saturday (19th) mid-morning with my three children (7, 5 and 2). We will be departing Wednesday the 23th about noon. I will be renting a car and we want to visit Disneyland, Legoland and perhaps SeaWorld. I have secured (refundable) lodging for the 19th-23rd in the Hotel Circle Area and additional have a room reserved in Anaheim for the 22nd and 23rd. My original plan was: 19th- Explore downtown/beach area, 20th- Legoland, 21st- Seaworld(then drive to Anaheim to sleep), 22nd- Disney, 23rd – drive to SD for return flight. I am now thinking I do not want to risk arriving late for my flight. Any suggestions to adjust itinerary? Thanks in advance.

Hi JB !

Re your itinerary - a couple of comments.

19th - <<Explore downtown/beach area,>>

It's a good idea to explore along the Bay where the Maritime Museum, Old Ships, USS Midway, Seaport Village are. There's also a new park where the kids can run through water.


There is no beach. The closest and least crowded is Coronado.

taking into account your flight out on the 23rd at noon I wouldn't chance driving from Anaheim. I would go to Legoland on the 20th. It is on the way to Anaheim so you can sleep there on the 20th. 21st go to Disneyland and go back to SD to sleep. Get up the 22nd and go to SeaWorld (if you decide to go - that's a lot of parks in a short trip). Then you'll be in San Diego the night of the 22nd and in town to get up for your flight on the 23rd.

Thanks so much for the suggestions! Any "must-sees" for kids in San Diego? I am not much of a theme park type, but the majority vote (wife/kids) love them. I am more about the experience of the city.
