Letting your kids get rid of all that extra energy is probably on the program for the coming months, and what better place to expend all that energy but a theme park. Today amusement parks offer more variety and hair-raising rides than ever before, making your special times with your kids that much more fun.
Before you head out into the sunshine, it's worth taking note that paying for your day of fun using your credit card is not just safer (who wants to carry coins on a roller coaster), it may also help you get more fun for your money.
A Visa card may be your ticket to discounted fun if your kids are into LEGO®. With a hotel coming in 2015, LEGOLAND® Florida Resort in Winter Haven (near Orlando, FL) will thrill kids between 2 and 12 with more than 50 rides, shows and attractions, a Water Park and The LEGO® World of Chima presented by Cartoon Network. Use your Visa card and receive 20% off single-day tickets to this 150-acre interactive theme park. If you are a West Coast resident, you might be happy to know that you can receive the same 20% off single-day tickets deal at LEGOLAND® California Resort (more than 60 rides, shows and attractions) when you pay with a Visa card.
American Express card members can enjoy special privileges at Universal Orlando® Resort. Benefits include 10% off food and beverages inside the resort (when you pay with an Amex card), and 10% off purchases of at least $50 of merchandise and 15% off purchases of $75 or more. If you buy a Universal Orlando® Multi-Park Ticket or Annual Pass with an American Express® Card you can get access to the American Express Lounge In Universal Studios® and enjoy complimentary drinks and light snacks, as well as a full-time concierge. Other perks include a photo spend and get offer, and exclusive Mardi Gras offers.
