Legoland Billund Tips and Tricks

Legoland Billund Tips and Tricks

In this post we round up all of our favorite Legoland Billund tips and tricks that we learnt from spending two days in this amazing park. So whether you want to know where to stay, what to book in advance or what the best rides are, we have the ultimate tips for you. 

Legoland Billund Tips and Tricks 

We have organised our Legoland Billund tips in somewhat chronological order starting at booking tips, what to pack and then of course the best things to do in the park itself.

Book in Advance

We definitely recommend booking both your Billund stay and your Legoland tickets in advance as you will save money. 

Accommodation is cheaper the further in advance you book and tickets for Legoland are usually 10 – 30% cheaper if buying them in advance at the door. 

When we booked our Legoland stay we booked direct with and this included both our hotel and 2-day Legoland tickets. 

Consider purchasing an annual pass

One of the things I always check when I visit any theme park from around the world, from Disneyland Paris to Legoland Billund, is whether or not it is a cost-saving to purchase an annual pass. 

If you are planning on visiting Legoland on multiple days, plan on visiting Lego House and plan on purchasing lots of souvenirs then this may be a way for you to save money in the park. 

What is the best time to visit? 


There are definitely better times to visit Billund than others. Firstly please be aware that Legoland Billund is not a 365-day operating park. Given the Danish weather, it should come as no surprise that Legoland closes for much of the Winter season. Traditionally Legoland doesn’t open until around the end of March / Easter which is when we went and then closes after Halloween with some seasonal Christmas weekend opening. 

Therefore be sure to check the park opening dates before booking. 

Outside of park closures, we recommend trying to visit Legoland outside of the UK and Danish School holidays and towards the start and end of the season when people may be deterred by bad weather. 

Also, it is worth noting that if you are travelling to Billund from the Uk the Danish schools don’t tend to have a Whitsun break and go back before the UK schools so these can be quieter times to visit too. 

What is the best day to visit?

Surprisingly Saturdays in peak season can be quiet due to it being a changeover day at many of the accommodations. So if you are traveling during peak season it is worth trying to visit on a Saturday. 

How long do you need for Legoland Billund?

The next question you may have when booking your Billund holiday is how long you need. I think many people, including us are tempted to do a long weekend. When we visited recently we did 4 days and 4 nights and our Billund itinerary looked like this:

Day 1: Legoland 

Day 2: Legoland 

Day 3: Lalandia

Day 4: Lego House. 

To be honest, we could have spent longer in the area and we are planning to go back next year for a week. However we will still probably only do two days in the park itself. If you are visiting in the off-season you may be able to get away with just one day in the park but we found to do all the rides, do some souvenir shopping and enjoy Miniland and other experiences like the Aquarium and Creativity Workshop that 2 days were better. 

Best Age to visit Legoland Billund?

Best Age for Legoland Billund tips and tricks

Legoland famously isn’t full of thrill rides so it is often said to be a park that isn’t for teenagers and adults (outside of the AFOL community – fun fact AFOL means Adult Fans of Lego). And I think that this is largely true due to the lack of larger rides. 

However, it is also worth pointing out that most of the rides have a minimum height restriction of 1 metre. We travelled to Legoland with our toddler, who was 3.5 years old at the time of travel and who measured 102cm. Personally, I would not travel to Legoland Billund with a toddler under 1 metre as there is very little they can do outside of playgrounds and Miniland. 

For this reason, I think the best age for Legoland Billund is between 4 – 10 years old. 

Get a Height Wristband

If you are travelling with a toddler around 1m or child that is close to other height requirements i.e. 120cm is another popular height restriction for rides, be sure to pick up a height wristband. This way you can get them measured at the start of your day and then just show your wristband when boarding other rides. 

Also, be sure to measure your child in advance of your visit and prepare them for any rides they can’t go on as it is 

Download the Legoland Billund App

Before you arrive in Billund we recommend downloading the Legoland Billund App. The app has a map of all the attractions, will show you wait times as well as show you nearest toilets, restaurants and other shops. 

Book activities in Advance

Legoland Billund tips – what to book in advance

I was actually pleasantly surprised about how little you need to book in advance at Legoland Billund. However there are two key attractions that you do need to book on the day which are:

  • Creative Workshop- basically a Lego building workshop where you can learn new techniques and 
  • Traffic School – one of the most popular attractions at any Legoland where kids learn to drive. 

When we were there at the start of the season we needed to book traffic school at the start of the day to ensure we got a slot later that day. It is definitely something that gets fully booked quickly so be sure to do this early in the day.

Take food

We had a big breakfast included in the price of our hotel room but on top of this, we also took plenty of snacks with us into the parks. This way we didn’t have to stop for lunch during busy lunchtime services at restaurants which eat into your time in the park. It will also be a huge cost-saving as meals and snacks in the park are at a premium.

Check out English showtimes

Legoland Billund tips

If shows and films are going to be a part of your itinerary you need to check the show times for your language. All shows and films are done in English or Danish so you will need to know what time your language is on so you don’t miss this. 

My son absolutely adored the Peppa Pig Show in the new Peppa Pig Playground area.

Know the opening and closing time of rides

Legoland Billund with kids and toddlers tips

One of the things that surprised me at Legoland Billund is that the rides in the park have different opening and closing times. We recommend familiarising yourself with the ride open and close times on the App so you know where to head when the park opens and what you can save for the last hour of the day. 

Top Tip: Don’t panic if not all rides are shown on your app. When we were in the parks only the rides that tend to get queues are shown in the list of ride queue times but others will be open. 

Do Big Rides early

Legoland Billund tips

Whenever I am going to a theme park I check the app for a few days in the run up to our trip. This way I know which rides traditionally get the longest queues and then I prioritise them in the morning. 

When we visited we prioritised the following rides in the morning:

  • The Eagle, 
  • The Dragon, 
  • Xtreme Racers,
  • Emmett’s Flying Adventure and 
  • Polar X-Plorer. 

Don’t Worry about Ride and Reserve

Ride and reserve is the Legoland equivalent to fast passes and genie +. However, I don’t think it is really necessary for Legoland Billund and the money in my opinion is better spent in the Lego Store.

Leave time for Miniland

Legoland Billund Tips and Tricks

Although people rush to the rides at Legoland it is worth leaving time in your itinerary to fully enjoy Miniland. 

Pack for Wet Weather

When we left the UK for Denmark we had dry weather in our forecast but I am so glad I packed plenty of wet weather gear, as 2 out of 4 days were wet. 

We recommend having packaway rain jackets and waterproof shoes with you whenever you are travelling to Billund. But if you forget the rain jacket don’t worry you can pick up bright yellow ponchos relatively cheaply in the park. 

Leave time to shop for souvenirs

There is a huge Lego shop at the entrance/exit to Legoland Billund. We were amazing with the choice which included some exclusive sets and some redundant sets too. So if you are a big Lego fan you will want to keep plenty of time in your itinerary for browsing the store. 

And there you have all our top tips and tricks for visiting Legoland Billund. But if you have any other questions please leave us a comment and we will get back to you as soon as we can!
