Eat

Not many restaurants are located in Billund. So go have your dinner in Vejle 30 km away where a lot of fine restaurants are located although they are a little expensive they are well worth the trip compared to the local offerings, which are mostly quick eats inside the theme park or at the hotels.

If you're staying at the local hotels, a budget alternative to their restaurants is to get some food from the supermarket

The biggest provider is Lalandia (see 'Do') which has hundreds of vacation rentals available, centered around families.
