11 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE VISITING LEGOLAND WINDSOR

Have you ever been to LEGOLAND Windsor? We have been many times and the children adore it there. Read on for everything that you need to know before your trip to LEGOLAND, plus my tops planning tips for making your visit a success.

Disclosure – We have been to LEGOLAND many times and paid for it ourselves. For our latest visit were invited on a press trip where we had complimentary entry in exchange for an honest review. All words and opinions are my own.

Check for discounts

Tickets bought in advance from the LEGOLAND website can be purchased at a discounted rate, so it’s always worth booking forbore you go. There are also frequent promotional offers on cereal boxes, hand soaps and other products which offer savings, so a quick Google search before you leave can ease the strain on your purse.

If you are a Merlin Annual Pass or LEGOLAND Annual Pass holder, LEGOLAND entry is free.

Download the app

The LEGOLAND app is a must download before visiting the park. It is the best way to keep up to date with queue times during your day so that you can plan which rides to go on in order to maximise your day.

Measure Your Children

Measure your children and check which rides and attractions they will be allowed on before you visit to avoid disappointment on the day. This information can also be found on the LEGOLAND App.

Choose Your Times Wisely

If at all possible, plan your visit on a weekday during term time to avoid the majority of the queues.

Check The Opening Hours

Like most theme parks, LEGOLAND’s opening hours vary around the year to adjust for demand. Make sure that you check out the opening hours for the day that you plan to visit here.

Book Your Parking

Parking is chargeable (unless you are a Merlin Premium Annual Pass holder), but is cheaper if you book in advance.

Getting To LEGOLAND

LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort is on the B3022 Windsor/Ascot road just two miles from Windsor town centre.  The address is;

Winkfield Road
Windsor
Berkshire
SL4 4AY

SAT NAV Tip

The postcode for the resort is: SL4 4AY. If you are using a Sat Nav system to get to the Resort, make sure that you follow the local brown tourist information signs directing you to LEGOLAND, to avoid the possibility of your Sat Nav incorrectly directing you into a residential street.

Organise Your Ride Access Pass For Family Members With Additional Needs

If you or any of your party have disabilities or additional needs that would make queueing difficult, then you may qualify for a Ride Access Pass. For full details and to see if you qualify, please visit LEGOLAND’S Accessibility page.

If you do qualify, you will need to provide documents as evidence to support your claim. Full details of which documents you will need can be found on the LEGOLAND website. This proof can be brought with you on the day of your visit, or, to save time, you can upload your documents directly so that LEGOLAND can check them and issue you with a reference number in advance.

I talk more about the Ride Access Pass in the video below.

Decide if you’ll get a QBot

A QBot is an upgrade which means that your place in a queue for a ride or attraction is held for you while you enjoy another area of the park. If you are awarded a Ride Access Pass, you will be given a QBot plus one “One Shot Ride” (a ride that you can get on directly without using the QBot) for 4 people free of charge.

I talk more about QBots in the video above.

Staying near LEGOLAND

As well as the 2 on site LEGO hotels, LEGOLAND have a number of partner hotels in the local area which offer sort break deals.

The Hilton in Reading

On our last trip to LEGOLAND, we stayed for 2 nights at the Hilton in Reading. The hotel was just over a half-hour drive from LEGOLAND and included parking. The hotel itself was superb, the staff went the extra mile and the food was excellent.

Check out the video below to see more about our stay at the Hilton in Reading.
