A list of over 25 things Montebello residents see, do, or experience.
Lego Club Magazine
My kids love Legos! Sign up your kids to get a free two year subscription to the Lego Club magazine or Lego Club Jr. for little kids.
Free Lego Mini-Build
The first Tuesday of every month the Lego Store has a free mini-build for kids. Kids can go in and put together a mini-project to take home. What's not to love about free Legos and creativity?!
Open the Disney Store
If you are the first Guest in line when the Disney Store opens you get the honor of opening the store and get a keepsake to remember the day. You can also celebrate your birthday at the Disney Store, just tell a Cast Member that it's your birthday and they'll put a special show on in the gazebo just for you!
Kids can play for one hour in the supervised play area that includs a giant ball pit while parents shop alone, in peace, without children, it's wonderful. Also, ice cream is only $1.
Lowe's Build & Grow Workshops
Once or twice a month Lowe's hosts free workshops for kids where the kids get to put together a toy from a kit. They use real hammers and get a patch when finished. Moms can go of course, but in our house, it's a great Daddy-Child bonding time.
