Have you applied to merlins magic wand?
HIGHLY RECOMENDED
If thats ruled out do remember THE FOLLOWING:

- Free admission for registered personal assistants with documented proof of disability. The personal assistant is to help the Guest with disabilities to maximise their day, especially while waiting for the rides and attractions. If there are other members of the party that require accompaniment such as children under the height restrictions we recommend an additional adult visits the park. Documentation is required and some questions will be asked to understand your individual requirements and enable us to advise you on how to make the most of your day. Please be advised we will not judge people on their physical appearance and so do require documentation for all disabilities

So you can get in for FREE

Does Matty have behavioural issues or anything that could be impacted by queueing?

Just a quick update on our Legoland trip!
Getting a carer in was easy, I forgot the DLA letter (as you do :\ ) but there was no problem with it, obviously Matty is in a specialist wheelchair though, don't know if that helped, although they didn't really look! Was preparing to send hubby running back to car park for blue badge Big Grin
Once inside, we went for the exit passes. I took Mattys school statement, which states 'development delay and learning difficulties due to encephalitis' and got the stamps with no issues at all. My niece also got stamped (she has diabetes and arthritis) with a GP's letter.
I'm so glad we managed to get them, as some queues were a couple of hours long!
Pushing Matty back up the hill in the wheelchair was no joke! But worth it! He got on quite a few rides, and the staff were really helpful and didnt make us feel rushed when we were lifting in and out of the wheelchair. Avoid the 'big shop' at the end of the day though, its PACKED!
The car park was free upon showing the blue badge on the way out.
Wasps were definetely a problem - my eldest ended up getting stung on her stomach! Lots of tears about it, but a member of staff working in a nearby kiosk quickly passed us packs of vinegar when they heard what had happened. At least we know she isn't allergic to wasps now! The signs claimed that wasp traps were installed all over the park, but I only saw a couple up near the water rapids ride?
All in all, a great day, and definetely worth trying for the exit passes if you can, as otherwise it would have been far less fun. I think we'll try and avoid august next year though!

Have they installed signs now confirming a wasp problem?
You should of got the train back up the hill as that had an area for wheelchairs and buggies.

Glad to hear everyone had a great day Smile

Yes signs everywhere, stating 'there is a wasp problem, please note we are installing wasp traps all over the park and near food areas'
We knew about the train, but at the end of both days, were nowhere near the station for some reason :\

i just need to add to this, we went a few weeks ago and were actually bitterly disappointed, jacob is unable to sit unaided (but could sit on someones lap if needed) and every single ride required the child to be able to sit unaided, and they didnt allow him to sit on a lap so he had to spend the whole day watching his 4 year old brother enjoy himself, very frustrating for us all :-(
