How it works

What do you mean by "consecutive calendar days"?

"Consecutive calendar days" are days in a row, on a calendar. A calendar day is not a 24-hour period.

For example, if you have a 3-Day Go San Diego Card and visit your first attraction on a Monday evening, it is valid for the remainder of Monday (1st calendar day) and the two days immediately following it: Tuesday (2nd calendar day), and Wednesday (3rd calendar day).

Tip: to get the most out of your pass, plan to visit attractions early in the day.

Is this just a discount card? Will I still need to buy tickets?

No. Passes include admission to each attraction; no need to pay anything at the gate. Some attractions may offer upgrades or special exhibits for an additional fee.

Do I need to choose my attractions in advance?

Nope, you can choose from the included attractions as you go.

What is the age cut off for child cards?

Child cards are for children ages 3-12. Most attractions do not charge for children under 3 years old. However, there are some exceptions (especially children's museums and attractions geared toward very young travelers). If you have a child under 3 years old, please check with the attraction directly in advance. You may be charged at the gate.

How will I get my pass?

Instantly! Choose between 2 options:

  • Use your pass right on your phone with the free Go City Card app.
  • Print your pass and guidebook at home.

Links and easy-to-follow instructions for both options will be in your confirmation email.

How do I "activate" my card?

Simply visit your first attraction!

Is my card valid all day?

Yes. You can enter attractions any time with the Go San Diego Card.

What is your refund policy?

Our Risk Free Guarantee gives you one year from your purchase date to return any non-activated passes for a full refund.

How many days should I buy?

Most travelers visit between 2 and 3 attractions each day depending on individual preference. Our most popular card is the 5-Day card.

Can I purchase passes on the spur of the moment when I arrive in San Diego?

Of course! With instant digital delivery, you can purchase and access passes right on your mobile device. Or, visit one of our local purchase locations.

Does a Go San Diego Card expire?

Yes. You have one year from the date of purchase to begin using your pass. After one year, it will expire.

How much will I save?

Compare the price of the pass to the gate prices of the attractions you want to visit to see how much you can save.

We give you the flexibility to create your own itinerary and choose the attractions you want to visit depending on your interests.

For inspiration, check out some of our sample itineraries, insider tips, and more for info on all the fun things to do in San Diego so you can make the most of your time here.

How many attractions can I visit in one day?

On a Go San Diego Card, you can visit as many attractions as you want in a day.

Can I visit an attraction more than once?

In most cases, you can visit each attraction once per day. Some attractions are valid only once during the life of the pass. Please reference your guidebook for specific information on each attraction.

Do I need to make reservations to visit the attractions?

Attractions that require a reservation will display this symbol on the guidebook page.

Some attractions require a credit card to hold a reservation. In these cases, your credit card will not be charged unless you do not show up for your reservation.

What’s the catch?

There’s no catch. Go San Diego Card has a partnership with all of the participating attractions to make your visit to San Diego as memorable as possible and to help you save time and money.

Can I share my pass with a friend or sell it?

No. The Go San Diego Card is non-transferrable and may not be re-sold.

What happens if an attraction is closed or a tour is cancelled due to weather or other problem?

While we do our best to ensure that all attractions are available, events happen that are out of our control. The great thing about a Go San Diego Card is that there are so many attractions to choose from. If an attraction is closed, or cannot be visited for some reason, we know you'll find a fun alternative in your guidebook!

I still have questions!

Please feel free to call us at 800‑887‑9103 and we’ll be happy to help you!

Love the convenience, especially for first-timers
By BHutch from Provo, UT on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Go San Diego® Card All-Inclusive Pass:

Having this card was really convenient and made our trip really fun. It didn't save us any money in the long run than if we had paid admission to all the attractions we attended, but the convenience of having all those admissions in one place beforehand was really nice. We were also able to become aware of other attraction options we may not have been aware of. The card allowed us the freedom to explore those spur-of-the-moment attractions and not feel like we had to stay and get our money's worth if it wasn't to our taste. Loved it and would definitely go this route for next time.

Comments about Smart Destinations Go San Diego® Card All-Inclusive Pass:

This was our family's first time in California so we really wanted to get the most out of our trip that we could. We had a 7-day all-inclusive pass and it was just what we needed! Not only did it allow us to do a lot more since it saved so much money, but it also really helped us plan our trip seeing as how most of the things that we did in our two-week time was from the go-card. We had so much fun!

Great Flexibility / Great Money Saver
By Family Christmas Trip from Salt Lake City, Utah on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Go San Diego® Card All-Inclusive Pass:

Got the 5-day Go San Diego Card and it was awesome. Used the print-at-home "tickets" and didn't have a single problem. All the venues were familiar with it and we either went right in or immediately got needed tickets to get in. Loved the flexibility of letting my kids decide each day what we were going to do. Didn't feel pressured to stay too long but also got to spend as much time as we wanted. Would highly recommend this and will definitely use again. Here is what we did: Day 1 whale watching (does require advanced reservations) and USS Midway, Day 2 Sea World, Day 3 Birch Aquarium and Belmont Park, Day 4 San Diego Zoo, and Day 5 Air and Space Museum and Auto Museum.

Fun in San Diego.
By AT from MN on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Go San Diego® Card All-Inclusive Pass:

Lots to see and do in San Diego. With a little planning, you can maximize the card. It would have been nice to have a few extra days in which to use the card instead of 5 consecutive days for a 5 day go card (especially when your trip falls over a holiday ( i.e. Thanksgiving)).

Would definitely buy again
By Mom of 2 year old from Calgary, canada on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Go San Diego® Card All-Inclusive Pass:

We went to san diego with a two year old which requires flexibility. Having this card meant we didn't have to commit to any attraction if we didn't like it or the weather wasn't good, and waste a lot of money doing so. Which did happen a lot, we left sea world after 2 hrs. We probably would have spent about the same amount if we stuck to our original itinerary, but it probably would have made our son and us miserable having to stay long at an attraction we didn't like just to justify the cost of tickets. Totally worth it, we went to 8 museums and attractions in 5 days.

Buyer beware the days have to be consecutive
By Reenmomof4 from Utah on
Bottom Line:
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Go San Diego® Card All-Inclusive Pass:

I purchased 5 of the two day go passes and somehow didn't catch that they have to be consecutive days I thought you had a week to use them. So we went to Legoland and then went to the zoo another day and they said our passes used and void. The customer service was absolutely horrible on the go passes. We were denied entrance at the zoo I called customer service number waited on hold for over 30 minutes and talk to a lady that was rude and said that she would finally comp pass tickets for One Park that day. We waited 20 minutes for the email to come with the tickets and as she sent the wrong number we have a family of 5 and she sent 4 . But we went up to the gate to use them and they would not work she sent them for the wrong Park so then we went to the park they sent them for 45 minutes way and they were not valid. Super embarrassing and a waste of time and parking at two different parks and the passes did not work at . So essentially I way overpaid for one trip to Legoland. Not happy and will not buy these again ! And by the way you do wait in line Legoland you cannot go straight to the gate you have to go to customer services first and wait in a long line.

Comments about Smart Destinations Go San Diego® Card All-Inclusive Pass:

It was well worth the price the only thing I didn't like was that my husband left the card at the hotel and had to go back and get it. We asked at the front gate of LEGOLAND if they could look it up by my email and the said no, I think I read several reviews the same!
