Hi, I couldn't find any relevant recent topic on the subject so starting my own.

I'm going to visit Legoland in Billund with my family later this week, so I was wondering if the community had any tips on visiting? Anything special to look for, or if there's anything not worth wasting time on? Anything else to be mindful before going there? Maybe recommendations on restaurants?

We're going by car and staying in AirBnB so travel and accommodation is taken care of.

I went a few years ago. Don't know if things have changed since then. Also, I was travelling alone so my experience won't be the same. But FWIW, here are my tips:

  • Arrive as early as you can and take the popular rides then. It seemed to get a lot more crowded later in the day.
  • The big store to the left of the entrance is a 'zoo'. Avoid it in favour of the smaller stores dotted around. They are themed and don't have the full range, but it will save you time overall if you get what you want from them and only get things you can't find anywhere else at the big store.
  • Keep an eye out for sets that haven't been released elsewhere yet. I managed to get the latest CMFs at the time ahead of their street date anywhere else.
  • Allow space in your car for any bulky sets you may be buying. 
  • There are lockers you can use to the right of the entrance. Very handy for stuff you don't want to carry all day.
  • Bring your own food and drink. The food they have seems to be OK but is overpriced. They don't mind if you bring your own and consume it in the cafeteria or at the tables outside.
  • If you choose to get lunch from the cafeteria, aim for 11.45am, not noon. Those 15 minutes make a huge difference in terms of number of people.
  • Expect long queues for the rides/cinema.
  • I didn't take any of the water rides, but if you do, expect to get soaked.  
  • Don't miss the real penguins in the tank at the back right of the park. Don't know if they still have them.

Hope that helps.

Thanks a lot, exactly the sort of thing I was looking for! Especially the info concerning lunchtime is useful, as we're probably going to eat in the cafeteria to save effort (travelling with kid an all that...)

I don't think I'm going to buy much of Lego as it's probably less expensive elsewhere. Some souvenir is must have of course but beyond that only if I find something of special interest.
