Free things in Walt Disney World

Even Disney World newbies will acknowledge just how much there is to see, do, and eat within the confines of the Disney World Universe. 

However, before you fill up your days screaming on Space Mountain or searching for Nemo, take a moment to familiarise yourself with this non-exhaustive list of completely free park activities:

  • Stroll around the Animal Kingdom Lodge and try to spot the roaming zebras, giraffes, and gazelles
  • Attend a campfire sing-a-long (complete with free s’mores) with Chip n’ Dale at Fort Wilderness
  • Play with the gigantic models at the Lego Store
  • Venture into Disney Springs to indulge in top tier shopping and dining
  • Take in a fantastic firework/light show at Epcot 
  • Collect your favorite character’s autograph
  • Commemorate your birthday with a unique ‘Celebration Button.’
  • Watch a romantic firework display at Magic Kingdom
  • Complete a hidden Mickey Scavenger Hunt at the Wilderness Lodge
  • Attend a drawing lesson

Parking

To save both time, money, and the environment, if you can get away with no vehicle at Disney World, we highly encourage you to do so. 

Parking fees and valet rates can mount quickly in a lengthy vacation, so be sure to utilize free hotel shuttle options and the Magical Express Bus.

Strollers

We understand that traveling with strollers can be cumbersome. However, with stroller rental rates that begin at $15/day for a single and top out at $31/day for a double, it’s well worth it to bring your own from home.

Pro Tip: If you genuinely can’t be bothered to bring your own stroller (or you just forgot in your packing frenzy), you can always do a stroller rental through a third party such as Kingdom Strollers

These strollers usually net out at around $10/day for a 5-7 day rental and can be delivered directly to your hotel.

Souvenirs

Savor the magic memories, not the toys! 

Every kid might be clamoring for a princess costume or pair of Mickey ears to commemorate their Disney trip, but by pre-purchasing these popular items ahead of time, you can save substantial loot. 

Pro Tip: For the best deals, discounts, and savings on Disney souvenirs, check out Amazon or the Disney outlet near Disney Springs.

Photos

Photos are an incredible way to preserve your Disney World experience for years to come. 

Now with the unparalleled level of high-quality photos that can be taken with your very own phone, you can be your group’s own Disney paparazzi.

Pro Tip: Want a professional-worthy snapshot? Rumor is if you politely ask one of the PhotoPass photographers to take your family’s photo with your own phone - they will usually oblige for free!

Food & Beverages

A full day of roaming around Animal Kingdom or sailing the high seas with your favorite Pirates of the Caribbean is sure to build up quite an appetite. To keep your family and friends well fed and under budget, check out our following food and beverage hacks:

  • Utilize your hotel/resorts grocery delivery service 
  • Have breakfast at your hotel before park entry
  • Bring your snacks & drinks into the park
  • Pack a complete family-style picnic for the day
  • Plan your meals in advance, so you don’t spend more on hunger inspired food decisions
  • Try out some of the lower cost Disney World dining options such as Woody’s Lunch Box or Pizzafari 

Pro Tip: Is your little one a dainty eater? Kids under three can now share from their parent’s plate for free at Disney!
