2020 Annual Pass Terms & Conditions
These are the terms and conditions ("Terms") on which we supply LEGOLAND Annual Passes ("Annual Pass") to you. Please read these Terms carefully before you submit your order for any LEGOLAND Annual Pass to us. These Terms tell you who we are, how we will provide the Annual Pass to you, what to do if there is a problem and other important information. If you think there is a mistake in these Terms, please contact us to discuss.
We are Merlin Attractions Operations Limited, a company registered in England and Wales, with company number 06272935, trading as the LEGOLAND Windsor Resort (“LEGOLAND”) and our registered office address is LEGOLAND Windsor Park Ltd, Winkfield Road, Windsor, Berkshire, SL4 4AY. You can contact us by contacting https://support.legoland.co.uk/hc/en-us/requests/new
If we have to contact you, we will do so using the contact details you provide under Annex A – Contact us.
These Terms are inherent characteristics of the Annual Pass and are independent of any other contract and cannot be varied (other than in accordance with Term 15). Purchase and use of any Annual Pass is in accordance with the LEGOLAND terms and conditions which can be found at www.legoland.co.uk/terms. Please ensure that you are willing to be bound by these regulations before purchasing your Annual Pass.
When you place an order for an Annual Pass, our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us. We will assign a number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order. Unfortunately, we do not accept any orders from addresses outside the UK.
An Annual Pass will only be valid when it is used and/or presented by the named holder, it displays a clear photograph which must be a true likeness of the holder and it is within the validity period (as defined in Term 4.3). Photocopies of an Annual Pass will not be accepted. Any use or attempted use of an Annual Pass in breach of these Terms or the relevant attraction’s regulations will result in the Annual Pass being revoked without compensation. For the avoidance of doubt, pass sharing is a breach of these Terms and any attempted use of an Annual Pass by someone other than the photographed and named holder, regardless of the reason, will result in access being refused and the Annual Pass being revoked without compensation.

Annual Passes can be purchased at the LEGOLAND® Ticket Office, at The LEGOLAND Windsor Resort, www.legoland.co.uk/annualpass or the LEGOLAND Windsor Resort Hotel.
4.1 When you purchase an Annual Pass online you will be issued with an Annual Pass receipt. This must be exchanged for the Annual Pass within 6 months of the date of purchase. The Annual Pass receipt should be brought to the park at any time during LEGOLAND®'s opening hours (available via this link: https://www.legoland.co.uk/planning-your-visit/park-hours/) on your first visit. If not collected within the allocated time no refunds will be given as stated in Term 12.
Whilst you can collect the Annual Pass on any day in the operating calendar (https://www.legoland.co.uk/operatingcalendar), you can only use your Annual Pass on the valid dates as applicable to the Annual Pass purchased. We will take a photograph of the customer at the park and the Annual Pass will be printed with the customer's photograph.
4.2 The purchaser of any Annual Pass must be 18 years or over (and if purchasing an Annual Pass on behalf of a minor under 18 years of age the purchaser confirms that they are acting as agent for and on behalf of that minor and confirms that they are providing consent for the processing of the data set out in Term 2 in respect of such minor).

4.4. All Annual Passes are subject to any applicable exclusion dates. Please check the Annual Pass exclusions set out in Term 6 before your visit.
4.5. Please note that LEGOLAND® is not open all year round. Please check the LEGOLAND opening and closing dates on https://www.legoland.co.uk/planning-your-visit/park-hours/,

For the avoidance of doubt, the full value or any part of the value of the Annual Pass will not be refunded nor will any compensation be payable if LEGOLAND or any part of it becomes unavailable or is closed.
5. Carers Passes:
5.1 If a disabled person buys an Annual Pass, and presents at LEGOLAND® at their own discretion, proof of disability for example by production of a doctor's letter dated within the Validity Period of their Annual Pass and setting out their disability, or proof of receipt of disability living allowance or a disabled parking badge, that disabled Passholder shall be entitled to obtain a free Carer Annual Pass ("Carer Pass") which enables them to bring their carer into LEGOLAND with them at no additional cost. Carer Passes are issued solely at LEGOLAND's discretion and cannot be obtained online or over the phone. A person's sensitive data shall be processed in accordance with Annex A.
5.2 Carer Passes will need to be renewed annually. When renewing a Carer Pass, the disabled Passholder will need to present documentation proving disability again as LEGOLAND recognises that disabled status and assistance required may change from year to year.
5.3 The Carer Pass can be used by any family member, friend or carer of the disabled Passholder who is 14 years or over. The Carer Pass is issued to the disabled Passholder and will have the name, date of birth and a photo of the disabled Passholder. The Carer Pass can only be used when accompanying a full annual pass holder.
5.4 Each time the disabled Passholder visits LEGOLAND® with a carer, they shall also supply their Carer Pass in order for the carer to be granted entry. The Carer Pass entitles the carer attending LEGOLAND with the relevant Passholder to admission to the attractions only and does not entitle such carer to any other benefit or discounts (such as QBot). If the disabled Passholder has forgotten their Carer Pass and wishes to have a carer present during their visit to LEGOLAND, if the disabled Passholder presents documentation proving disability in accordance with Term 5, LEGOLAND at its sole discretion, may issue the carer with a Carer Day Ticket.
5.5 Use by the disabled Passholder and/or their carer of either the Annual Pass and/or the Carer Pass in breach of Terms 5 to 5.5 and/or these Terms will result in both the Annual Pass held by the disabled person and the Carer Pass being revoked without compensation.
Unless otherwise agreed by LEGOLAND®, an Annual Pass does not entitle the Annual Passholder to free entry to LEGOLAND:
6.1 outside the attractions' normal park opening hours as published on the website www.legoland.co.uk.
6.2 on the dates coloured Red on the LEGOLAND® operating calendar ("Red Event Days"). The LEGOLAND operating calendar is available at www.legoland.co.uk/operatingcalendar.
6.3 Admittance to rides and attractions are always subject to availability and capacity.
6.4 LEGOLAND® will use reasonable endeavours to advise Annual Passholders of additional charges that may apply prior to an Annual Passholder's visit, failing which, an Annual Passholder will be advised of additional charges when at LEGOLAND.
7. Entry to LEGOLAND®:
7.1 An Annual Pass will not guarantee immediate entry to LEGOLAND®, especially during peak times, nor does it guarantee that all rides and shows will be fully operational on the day of the visit.
7.2 Annual Passholders are advised to arrive at LEGOLAND early as entry restrictions due to capacity will be addressed on a first come first serve basis. All events are subject to availability and so to guarantee entry, booking in advance is, where available, strongly recommended.
7.3. The management of LEGOLAND®, acting reasonably, reserves the right to remove or refuse admission at any time and for any reason including, but not being limited to, LEGOLAND being at full capacity.
8. How to use an Annual Pass:
To use an Annual Pass, the Annual Passholder must show it at the admissions office, turnstile or other authorised entry point of LEGOLAND®. Entry to LEGOLAND will only be permitted if a valid Annual Pass can be presented.
Failure to present a valid Annual Pass (due to it having been lost, stolen or forgotten) will result in a charge of the "on the day" admission rate applicable at LEGOLAND and available only to guests who’s passes have been purchased at LEGOLAND, which will be non-refundable.
Re-entry to LEGOLAND on the same day requires a hand stamp which will be given to the Annual Passholder by LEGOLAND on entry.
9. Lost, stolen or damaged Annual Passes:
All Annual Passes remain the property of LEGOLAND® and can be withdrawn at any time. Annual Passholders shall take all reasonable steps to ensure that an Annual Pass is kept secure at all times and any Annual Pass which has been lost, stolen and/or damaged should be reported to the LEGOLAND pursuant to Term 9.2. Annual Passes are non-transferable and cannot be sold, loaned or given away to or used by a third party. An Annual Pass will automatically be deemed void and shall be revoked without compensation if sold, loaned or given away or if any attempt is made to sell, loan or give it away. In the absolute discretion of LEGOLAND, access will be denied to LEGOLAND and the relevant Annual Passholder's pass revoked, if LEGOLAND considers the Annual Passholder to be guilty of (i) fraud or attempted fraud in respect of the Annual Pass, (ii) misuse of the Annual Pass (e.g. abuse of the Annual Pass benefits): and/or (iii) inappropriate conduct. Inappropriate conduct includes, but is not limited to, displaying any sign or visible representation of any kind which is, or could reasonably be judged to be, threatening, abusive or insulting to any member of LEGOLAND's staff and/or other members of the public visiting LEGOLAND, or allowing or assisting a third party to attempt to gain unauthorised or improper access to LEGOLAND with an Annual Pass of which they are not the valid holder. For the avoidance of doubt no compensation will be given in such circumstances.
9.1 An individual who has their Annual Pass revoked in accordance with Term 5.5, 9 or 10 shall be prevented from obtaining a replacement Annual Pass and, in the future, is required to purchase a full price entrance ticket to enter LEGOLAND and this will be non-refundable. After a year, any individual with a revoked Annual Pass can contact LEGOLAND to purchase a new Annual Pass and LEGOLAND will assess the revocation or ban at the time. The issue of any new Annual Pass in accordance with this Term 9.1 is at the absolute discretion of LEGOLAND and is subject to availability. Customers who are permitted by LEGOLAND to purchase a new Annual Pass in accordance with this Term 9.1 shall be required to pay the full purchase price applicable at the time of purchase and therefore will not be entitled to purchase at the renewal price.
9.2 In the event of a lost, stolen and/or damaged Annual Pass, the Annual Passholder should contact LEGOLAND® directly to have the relevant Annual Pass blocked. Contact details are set out at the beginning of these Terms. LEGOLAND will re-issue a replacement Annual Pass subject to a maximum of four replacement Annual Passes per Annual Passholder per year. Replacement Annual Passes will only be issued to the individual whose details have been provided in accordance with Term 2. An administration fee of up to £10 will be charged for the re-issue of each lost or damaged Annual Pass. The re-issue of stolen Annual Passes will also be subject to the £10 re-issue fee unless the holder can provide LEGOLAND with a relevant crime reference number when requesting that the Annual Pass is re-issued.
10. Illegally purchased Annual Passes:
An Annual Pass that is discovered to have been purchased through illegal methods (including, but not limited to, the use of fraudulent debit/credit cards) will be revoked without compensation.
11. Annual Passes with other discounts, offers & promotions:
Unless stated otherwise, an Annual Pass cannot be used in conjunction with any promotional offer, voucher or advance booking or with any discount or retail/restaurant incentive. The Annual Passholder is only entitled to the discounts stated in these Terms or such other discounts as made available to Annual Pass holders at LEGOLAND®'s discretion from time to time.
