So, Legoland is probably one of our fave places to visit and have missed it so much. It’s one of our happy places to visit.
The park is opening on April 12th 2021 and as long as everything goes to plan, the hotel’s will be open again from May 17th 2021
If you’re planning on staying over and have a Merlin Annual Pass, then book through the Merlin Holiday Club to get a discount on your booking, plus you’re more likely to get un upgrade ** subject to availability ** from booking through the club than booking via an independent source.
Download the Legoland app via the app / google play stores before arriving. The app allows you to pre-book your tickets, order items from the store as click and collect and on the day keep an eye on the queue times and use the interactive map to get around the park. You can even make use of the day planner function prior to arriving.
Legoland have gone cashless, so make sure your phone has google / apple pay set up or you take your bank cards with you. You don’t want to get caught out!! If you have Merlin Passes – don’t forget to show them in the shops / restaurants to make the most of the discounts.
Pre-booking your tickets is essential as the park is working at reduced capacity and I believe are not allowing you to turn up without a pre-booked ticket
Pre-book day tickets here
Passholders MUST pre-book tickets as well, it is free to book and can be done here just scroll down once on that page and click on the photo that applies to the pass you have.
Arrive as early / as close to opening as possible.
If you are able to visit during term time, do so. It’s much quieter than holidays / weekends.
If you live locally, go midweek straight from school (better if you have passes) often afternoons / the last hour or so before closing can be the quieter times.
I would personally avoid inset / occasional days, everyone goes thinking that their school is the only one off, when in fact most schools are off and can quite often be busier than normal days
Face masks are mandatory for everyone over the age of 11 unless you are exempt.
The restaurants will be open but operating as takeaway only, other food outlets will be open at different times throughout the day selling a variety of snacks, ice-creams and drinks. Vending machines will also be available across the Resort.
Picnics are allowed also, we love taking a picnic and sitting in Miniland.
Our must go to rides every time we visit are the Deep Sea Adventure, Ninjago, The Dragon, Coastguard HQ, the Jolly Rocker, the Haunted House Monster Party and Mia’s Riding School. You may find that a few of the rides / attractions may be closed when the park first opens up due to being indoors, but as soon as they’re allowed, they will open them up.

The Legoland one will take you to the official Legoland site, if you are planning on spending a few days in the area visiting Chessington and Thorpe park, but don’t want to stay on site, then go to Holidaycottages.co.uk by clicking on the other image below.
