Things to Do in LEGOLAND® Billund for Families
It should come as no surprise that a family visit to LEGOLAND® Billund Resort should, of course, include a visit to LEGOLAND for all the amazing attractions! There are several rides and activities across each of the many lands; including LEGO Movie World, NINJAGO World, LEGOREDO Town, Brick Street, Imagination Zone, Pirate Land, Miniland, Knights’ Kingdom, DUPLO Land, Adventure Land and Polar Land, with daily shows as well. Whether you want to play quietly with LEGO, zoom around the track of a fast roller coaster, or settle for something in between, LEGOLAND® has you covered!
No family visit to LEGOLAND® Billund Resort would be complete without a trip to LEGO House, Home of the Brickä! There are four experience zones providing different interactive and visually immersive experiences incorporating 25 million bricks. Want to program robots to plant flowers, design and shoot a stop-motion film, create your own personal minifigure, build and race a vehicle, or bring a creature to life on screen? It’s all possible during the ultimate indoor-outdoor interactive LEGO experience. When you’re done with the zones, head outside. Here, you’ll find the multi-level play spaces. Alternatively, head to the basement to brush up on some LEGO history at the official LEGO museum.
Sad about leaving? You get to capture memories from your day in a couple of ways. Firstly, you can snap photos of your creations with the many photo kiosks around the zones. They are all captured through your ticket. Then, you also receive a custom 6-brick LEGO design to take home. Not to mention, a bag of LEGO to build the creation!
Reserve + Ride Pass
Our family was able to ride and do everything we wanted multiple times during a day and a half in the park, thanks to investing in the Reserve and Ride pass one of the days. Note: head to the Information desk immediately upon park entry, as a team member must activate it for you. This takes a few minutes. We were even able to time out the rides with little-to-no waiting in line to make the most of our visit.
Where to Eat in LEGOLAND® Billund for Families
For hungry families, there are conveniently located restaurants at each of the three LEGOLAND® lodging options, offering buffet breakfast and dinner (and a la carte lunch at Hotel LEGOLAND®), Panorama, and Pirates’ Inn.
The wide variety of foods caters to families coming from all over the world. This includes fresh crepe stations at breakfast and carving stations at dinner. As a bonus, the nearby play areas mean parents can relax and finish their meals peacefully. Meanwhile, children can spend more time with their favorite bricks or playscapes (and, if they’re lucky, the Nintendo Switch).
At LEGO House, BRICKACCINO offers a selection of grab-and-go (or sit) snacks, sandwiches, ice creams, and beverages before, during, or after your visit. Looking for a sit-down experience (reservations required)? Then, Mini Chef has you covered with a unique experience, served by robots! Order using LEGO and create a unique meal with a special LEGO surprise for the kids. And the food’s good, too! Hungry but in the middle of the action? A snack stand among the experience zones has families covered!
Within LEGOLAND®, there are many eateries dotted throughout the park. The Family Buffet lets kids pick from pasta, chicken nuggets, LEGO-shaped fries, and more, while parents have a full selection of hot and cold options. More specialized eateries offer burgers, pizza, steaks, salads, snacks, coffee, baked goods, and more – perfect for sitting and relaxing or eating on the go.
Where to Stay in LEGOLAND® Billund with Kids
Three fantastic options immerse you in all things LEGO during a family visit to LEGOLAND® Billund Resort.
- Hotel LEGOLAND® offers a half dozen different theming options from pirates to Friends, plus some rooms have views of LEGOLAND®!
- Next door and also across from the theme park, LEGOLAND® Castle Hotel brings out families’ inner knights, dragons, and princesses with its theming.
- LEGOLAND® Holiday Village offers themed LEGO® Ninjago®, Wild West and Wilderness cabins, pirate rooms, tents, and other camping options.
While the highly themed rooms and common areas – full of hands-on LEGO opportunities – are reason enough to love a family visit to LEGOLAND® Billund Resort, the outdoor space is also a destination. Several substantial playgrounds, along with smaller play spaces, dot the grounds on and around the lodging – giving plenty of opportunity for little ones to stretch their legs. The Holiday Village even has a petting zoo!
A benefit when booking, families have the option to purchase one- or two-day tickets to LEGOLAND®, see if breakfast is included or an add-on, and select other amenities prior to the stay, such as early check-in, filling up the mini-bar, or pre-purchasing dinner.
