  • Mindy Peterson

    We are planning a trip to Legoland CA, on Sat., Sept. 27th. What do you think the crowds will look like? Is it worth buying a premium play pass on that day?

  • Robert

    I don’t think it will be too packed. September is considered the off-season, so it doesn’t get very crowded until October for Brick-or-Treat.

  • Mindy Peterson

    Awesome. Thanks!

  • Stacey Tyler

    Should I go to Legoland Saturday, Aug 16 or Monday, Aug 18?

  • Robert

    The summer crowds are still out this week, so Saturday is expected to be packed. Monday should be more manageable.

  • Stacey Tyler

    thank you Robert!

  • Lora

    Will it be busy on Friday September 26th?

  • Robert

    It shouldn’t be crowded on that day. Weekdays in September are slow.

  • Lora

    Great, thank you!

  • Gina

    Will it be packed this Friday august 29th because of the Labor Day weekend

  • Robert

    I don’t think it will be packed. It’s expected to be manageable this week.

  • Jane

    What day is the best day to go over Labor Day weekend? Saturday, Sunday, or Monday?

  • Robert

    I think Monday would be most manageable. It’s usually packed on Saturday and Sunday.

  • Allyson

    Which would be better, Sept 5 or 6?

  • Robert

    Friday should be less crowded. Saturdays tend to be the busiest day of the week.

  • Anne

    Which would be less crowded: fall break weekend (Oct 3, 4) or Thanksgiving holidays. Thanks.

  • Robert

    I think the first weekend of October would be better. Thanksgiving Weekend is usually crowded.

  • kim

    We are thinking of coming to the park on oct. 11th. How crowded do you think it will be? Is there a huge difference in crowds between Friday and sat?

  • Robert

    Saturdays in October are usually busy throughout the day and then it gets really packed at night for Brick-or-Treat. I think Friday will definitely be more manageable if you can go then.

  • Angie

    We want to go to Legoland on December 31st and January 1st. If of all, is Legoland open on New Years Day? And second, is it expected to be packed those days?

  • Robert

    Yes, Legoland is open on New Year’s Day. It’s usually very busy on those days. It’s one of the most crowded times of the year.

  • Mich

    We are coming from Australia to visit Legoland on a brief stopover. Will Legoland be very busy on Saturday 8th November?

  • Robert

    I’d be prepared for it to be busy on that Saturday since it’s a holiday weekend (Veterans Day). I don’t think it will be too crazy though since the holiday falls on a Tuesday this year. Get there early if you can for more manageable lines.

  • Mick

    we are trying to decide Sunday October 12th or Monday the 13th, taking rush hour into consideration to get there. Do you think Sunday would be better with no traffic, but more visitors, or Monday with traffic but less park visitors?

  • Robert

    I would just fight traffic and go on Monday. Crowds are expected to be very manageable on the weekdays, so you should be able to get everything done easily.

  • Mick

    Thank you so much Robert!!!!

  • Karen

    We are thinking of going this Thursday 10/9 or next Thursday 10/16. Crowded??

  • Robert

    I don’t think it will be crowded on those dates. Weekdays this month are usually very manageable.

  • Tracy

    When is the best time to visit when the water park is also open? Planning for next year already for our Lego obsessed four year old. :)

  • Robert

    I think early June is a good time to go. The weather is warmer and the big summer season crowds aren’t out yet for the first couple weeks of the month.

  • Tracy

    Thank you!

  • Ashley

    We are going to be at the LegoLand water park on 10/25. Will it be busy enough to justify renting a cabana?

  • Ashley

    Also..is a high of 85 in California warm enough to enjoy the water park?

  • Robert

    I don’t think it will be too busy. It usually isn’t very crowded in October. I think a high of 85 will be fine for the water park. It’s been cool in the morning, but it warms up nicely at around noon.

  • Amy

    Hi, we are deciding between 11/11 (Veterans Day, close at 5pm), 12/6 (Sat, closes at 7pm) and 12/8 (Monday, closes at 5pm). Obviously 12/6 is most attractive since it closes later, but do you think it will be super packed? If not that day, 12/8 will likely be less packed than 11/11 right? Any other considerations that I missed? Finally, which of the Saturdays in December is likely to be least crowded? Thanks a lot!

  • Robert

    I think December 8 would be best. It should definitely be more manageable than Saturday and a little better than Veterans Day. You should be able to get everything done easily even though the park closes earlier. That said, I don’t think that Saturday will be super packed. It gets busier closer to Christmas, so for a Saturday in December, I think 12/6 would actually be ideal.

  • Amy

    Thanks you so much Robert, much appreciated!

  • Debbie

    Any thoughts on crowd levels Monday, 11/10 and Tuesday, 11/11? Most schools are off for those days – typically what are the crowds like around Veteran’s Day? Would you expect Tuesday to be less crowded that Monday? Thanks!!!

  • Robert

    I’d be prepared for it to still be busy, but the bulk of the Veterans Day Weekend crowds usually arrive on Saturday and Sunday. It looks like more schools take Tuesday off, so I think that Monday might be a little more manageable. Get there early!

  • Debbie

    Thanks!!!

  • NorCal Parent

    Any thoughts on how crowded it is over President’s Day weekend?

  • Robert

    I’d be prepared for Legoland to be fairly busy for Presidents Day Weekend. It’s usually a popular holiday weekend. I think Monday (Presidents Day itself) would be most manageable.

  • TexasSweeper

    Will the park be crowded the Monday and Tuesday before Thanksgiving? What day is best during Thanksgiving week?

  • Robert

    I don’t think it will be too crowded on the weekdays before Thanksgiving. The bulk of the crowds usually arrive on Friday and Saturday. I don’t think there will be much of a difference between Monday-Thursday.

  • Sharon

    I would think Thanksgiving day would be pretty empty.

  • LKH777

    Will it be packed Thanksgiving weekend? Saturday or Sunday? Thoughts?

  • Robert

    Yes, it’s expected to be busy after Thanksgiving, especially on Saturday. Sunday should be more manageable. Get there early!
