Depends on what you're wanting to buy really!
Kids eat free after 3pm with an adult meal (around £10-15 each) so if you can take enough snacks with you to take away the munchies til then, it might save you a bit.
The merchandise is quite pricey though, so depending on what type of thing you'd want to buy, you'd need a min of £10-£20 each for a half decent souvenir.

Lots, especially if you intend on eating there too. A typical burger/hot dog meal for four with drinks etc comes in at around £35, then nearly every ride has a photo opportunity (although when we went last year you could buy three pics for about £20, which you could buy together at the end of the day). Then you've got the Lego toy shops etc that are dotted around the place.

You can take food in with you though, and there are a couple of designated picnic areas.

Saying all that though, it's well worth it.

Oh not as bad I thought then haha, I read somewhere that you needed to take loads of money, we are going for two days and I allowed £190 per day so looks like there will be plenty. Reading reviews people made it out like you needed loads. Feel better now.

We go every year. We take a packed lunch as there are plenty of places to sit and eat. You can buy refillable juice bottles for about £7, they are definitely worth it, especially on a hot day as you can go and refill all over the park. We never bother with the ride photos, but as someone has said, you can get deals on them. Have a limit of what you are going to spend in the shop - lego sets themselves are better prices on amazon but there are a few things you can only get in the park. You can get 3 minifigures for £5, that you build yourself, my eldest daughter likes doing those. For an evening meal we usually go for the kids eat free after 3pm deal, there's also an all you can eat buffet there.
Have fun!

£190 per day is more than enough

I just zoom in and take a photo of the ride photo for free

The kids eat free doesn't start until after 4pm, not 3pm as mentioned a couple of times. We've just come back from a couple of days there. Speaking from experience the food quality is not that good in the park, it's very expensive and the hot meals tend to be lukewarm at best. Take a picnic and eat it whilst watching the pirates show on the lake at either 12 or 1 o'clock, that's what a lot of people tend to do.

As regards the shopping, there is a huge range of Lego available, but it is all at RRP, so there is no scope for getting anything on offer. There is a "last chance" shop above the new star wars miniland area which is supposed to sell discontinued stock at a discount but to be honest there was very little in there today that I would have said was good value.

Hope you have a great time, we've been many times and always enjoyed it. Get there for when it opens if you can, it does get busy and you will have to queue for many of the rides. If you plan to stay till the end be prepared to queue to get out of the park. Last night the queues out of the car park finally cleared at 8.45pm, the park had closed at 7pm!

Hope this is all of help.

Well I would say, food is about £15 per adult, half price for the kids, then about £2-3 per drink. Lego in the main legoland is quite expensive, and is cheaper outside the park online obviously. They love money there and when you have kids asking for everything it is worse!! Good luck!! But take as much as you can.

As above, kids eat free from 4pm, and adults can get a reasonable meal for about a tenner a head. Some places are all you can eat, so although the food isn't a la carte, it will fill you up.

Get yourselves a couple of the £6 refillable drinks vessels on the first day. You can top these up completely free all around the park. At the restaurant in Pirates Landing, fizzy drinks are self service, so you can in theory use the same cups the next day if you fill up there - that said, we were only asked for the receipt once in the whole 2 days we were there.

As for the shops, as stated above it's all sold at RRP. If your kids see anything they want, and they can be patient, order it online when you get home.

I am not sure if there is one there, think there may be, but there is a Pizza Pasta place and that is pretty good, not too much to buy and you get unlimited pizza pasta and salad, and drinks. Kids do eat free from 4, but kids will most likely be hungry before that!! I would avoid the cafe by the water fun area, expensive and not that nice from my experience.

Yup, Pizza Pasta place is in Lego City next to where they do the pirate show.

Get a decent backpack and take your own drinks/sandwiches/snacks. There is a Tesco not far from the park - we stopped there on the way in and bought what we needed for the day.
Hot dog and nacho meals are £7 from memory and there are lots of these stalls dotted around. We didn't bother with the on-site restaurants. Lego isn't cheap and there's plenty tat to buy if you see fit. Some of the stalls are pay-to-play and you can win cuddly toys etc like the funfair. Think these are a fiver a time.
