Is 2 years old too young for Legoland?

I'm planning to take my son to San Diego for his 2nd birthday. I'm debating whether to take him to the SD zoo or Legoland. I've never been to Legoland so I don't know much about it. I've been to SD zoo and love it.

    We took my older son to Legoland for his 2nd birthday (he’s 4 now) and it was great. They actually have a list that tells you all the rides he’s able to go on so you don’t have to figure it out on your own, super convenient. We spent the whole day there and had a lot of fun. Love the zoo too but it wouldn’t be bad to try something different for your special occasion. 🙂

    With my small kids, legoland was pretty great for them. The zoo is cool, but a lot busier and less for them to actually do.

    Problem is will he stay awake all day to actually enjoy the park. You pay a lot if you have to leave for a nap halfway through then it might not be worth it

    I’d skip naps for special outings. You May pay for it later, but it’s worth it and perhaps he will go to sleep immediately when you put him to bed.

    I took my 20 month old and 4 yo to Legoland this month. They both had a lot of fun. For a 2 yo, I'd bring a stroller and let him nap, ideally while we eat lunch. I'd pick Legoland over the zoo, because of the water park (just splash areas for small kids) and being physical. At the zoo, it's hard to see all the animals in some of the exhibits so he's on my shoulders or in the stroller, not running around. We really liked the aquarium at Legoland, though small and no strollers allowed.
