Saving for a Disney World vacation is no walk in the park – It’s pricey to visit the Most Magical Place on Earth. So to help you out, we’ve got a list of some freebies you can pick up once you make it in the gate.
Scroll through these 10 things available for you and your family at Disney World. Hey, it won’t cost you a cent.
1. Celebration Buttons
Get these at the Guest Services desk at the parks and wear them to proudly announce your birthday, first time at the park or whatever you’re celebrating. Let the cast members make a fuss over your celebration too. That’s part of the fun.
2. Maps, bands and passes
These are free and branded and collectable. Free souvenirs!
3. Visit Disney’s Boardwalk
It’s free, and fun, to stroll around in the evening and watch all the street performers.
4. See Disney Springs
Parking is free. Chocolate sampling is free at the Ghirardelli shop. Lego building is free at The Lego Store. Free stuff is the best stuff.
5. Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom
Pick up free spell cards at the Town Center’s Fire Station and hunt for villains at portals throughout the park.
6. Pixie Dust
Depending on how you feel about glitter, pixie dust is a fantastic freebie. In the Magic Kingdom, find Tinkerbell at the Town Square Theater for a dust dousing. Cast members at the Castle Couture shop in Fantasyland will also happily oblige.
7. Magic Kingdom Fireworks
Disney World is famous for their free fireworks show. At showtime, stand near the Ticket and Transportation Center for the best view.
8. African animal sightings
In an area outside the lobby of the Animal Kingdom Lodge, giraffes and zebras and their friends from the savannah roam freely…and viewing is free.
9. Boat and monorail rides
From the Magic Kingdom, hop on a boat or the monorail and visit the various lodges and hotels.
10. Free ice water
Okay, so maybe your kids won’t go gaga over free water, but it seriously beats paying a few bucks for each bottle, and this freebie will keep everyone hydrated – especially important in the Florida summer. Any counter service restaurant will give you a large cup of water with or without ice upon request.
Did you have any idea there were so many freebies in Disney World? Now, the tickets to get in…that’s another issue.
