Kids Free October

Enjoy San Diego Kids Free October on Mission Bay

This October, bring your kids to Mission Bay, the most fun place to enjoy Kids Free October in San Diego.

Mission Bay hotels are turning up the family fun all month long with special kids’ activities rotating throughout each of the properties every Saturday in October. These kid friendly activities will be sure to get your kids moving and giggling!

*Open to non-hotel guests.

  • Hula Lessons and Lei Making with Moana, during which the island princess will help little ones make their own special lei to keep, followed by hula dancing lessons to get kids moving and grooving
  • Lightsaber Training with Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia, during which each child will be gifted a lightsaber and gets the chance to meet the galactic heroes and learn the ways of the force
  • Superhero Training, during which kids can meet a real superhero, and learn to be their own hero for the day; guests will be guided through a specialized superhero training obstacle course, including hurdles, crawling tunnel, agility ladder, balance pods to practice jumping from building-to-building, complete with a villain to fight and a baby to save; finally the training will culminate in a true test of strength with an exciting round of tug-of-war
  • Face Painting with Princesses, during which a fairytale princess will paint faces, sing and dance
  • Kids Fitness Events with NXPT Fitness, featuring a variety of kid-friendly athletic events such as obstacle courses, sports, a boardwalk Walk & Roll 5K that encourages scooters, bikes and strollers (while parents jog along!), and games (also open to non-hotel guests)
