Food & Drink

No visit to Legoland California would be complete without a sweet serving of Granny's Apple Fries. 

However, a day of theme park meals can undoubtedly rack up quite a bill. Keep hunger and your wallet in check when you follow our helpful tips for Legoland's eats and drinks:

  • Stock up and water and small snacks, both of which are allowed in the park
  • Can't get enough of that soft drink fizz? If you guzzle pop, try investing in a reusable souvenir cup that allows you cheap refills.
  • Opt for larger-style meals that can be shared family-style, such as the Knights BBQ Smokehouse meat platters or a hefty rice or noodle bowl at Everything is Ramen.

Souvenirs

Lego sets, mini figurines, apparel, oh my! There are many Lego-themed goodies to choose from when pursuing the theme park's many retail options. 

If you know your kiddies will be clamoring for a little slice of Legoland to bring home, why not come prepared? 

Mini-figure trading is a time-honored Lego tradition that no one should miss out on. Purchase Minifigures in the park for around $5/bag, or else bring your own from home to save a buck.
