I want to renew my pass but won't be visiting legoland till October. Does anyone know if I can renew now but pick up and have a start date from October?

No it renews from the renewal date unfortunately. We did this last month

I stopped getting annual passes since they started charging for parking. Having to pay extra for each visit made it much lower value.

From the official website:

*Annual Passes purchased online expire 12 months from the date of pass ID issue at the park. Temporary pass must be exchanged for pass ID within 60 days of purchase.

You get free standard parking with annual pass

The website shows Legoland annual pass comes with free standard parking. Only Merlin pass does not provide free parking.

Yes, sorry, I should have been clearer.

I don't see an annual pass for a single park as particularly appealing, so always go for the Merlin one, which no longer includes parking.

I used to pay £85 for a Merlin pass which covered all parks and free parking. Now that will only buy an annual pass for one park, prices have gone up a lot but the queues have only got worse. They've also thrown out the cheaper food outlets, they used to have McDonalds that charged a normal price for food, for example. Now it's all very expensive.

We've become a world where loyalty, discounts and coupons are the only way to get a good price on anything. Have you seen the full price of Pizza Express? It's clearly priced to allow for half-price coupons. Likewise delivery pizza like Dominos & Papa Johns - they're only a reasonable price when they are two for one.

All the Merlin parks have gone the same way. The single ticket price has become ridiculous, forcing people towards annual passes which encourage more repeat visits and drink sales whilst you're stuck in a queue for half of your day.

I just want a reasonable price for a single day out, too much to ask?

Yup. We renewed on Friday (01/07/16) a day before expiry, printed the receipt. Went to LEGOLAND a few days later on Tuesday (05/07/16) and queued up for the new cards. The date on the new cards for expiry next year is the Saturday (02/07/17) - the date of expiry for this year.

And to make matters worse, they allow queue jumping for visitors where money seemingly isn't an issue. If it wasn't already expensive enough, people who can afford £25-£75 per person per visit, get to jump to the front of the queue leaving the rest of us trying to re-assure our kids that it will be our turn soon. For a family of 5 like mine, there's no way we could warrant an extra £125 to not queue for the day, and even if we could, we would feel too embarrassed walking past all the tired, hot, people waiting their turn patiently. Don't agree with it at all (as you can probably tell!).

I'll probably give it a miss this year then. I got passes for £55 last year, so this just isn't a good enough deal.

Yeah, another good point. Due to all this and the recent health & safety concerns, we've kinda stopped going. Can't remember last time we went to a Merlin theme park. Actually quite enjoying going to some other random places, the season ticket used to make us feel obliged to go to the same places over again.

We renewed as the kids really enjoyed the rides - when it was busy we went to the water play or pirates play area. It's about an hour and a half drive, as long as you get there a bit early you get a close-ish park. Bring your own food! Also the guest services near the pirate show allows you to top up water bottles AND has a microwave!

Let me put this another way...

£85, family of four, 4 x £85 = £340.

Now think how much Lego you can buy for £340...
