Since Maker's Pier is adjacent to LEGOLAND Japan, it is convenient to use the restaurants there before entering LEGOLAND or after leaving. However, it's important to note that Maker's Pier and LEGOLAND are operated by separate entities and are not affiliated with each other.

If you enter LEGOLAND with a regular 1DAY Passport, please be aware that re-entry is not permitted. This means you cannot exit to dine at a restaurant in Maker's Pier for lunch and then return. If you have a Combo 1DAY Passport for LEGOLAND and SEA LIFE, you can re-enter LEGOLAND once after exiting (since SEA LIFE is located outside of LEGOLAND). If you have an Annual Passport, you can re-enter multiple times.
