Do the words “free” and “Disney” go together?  They sure can!  If you are planning a “non park” day, arriving late, or leaving early on the Tragical Express, then this list is for YOU!  There are many free activities at Walt Disney World, you just have to know what they are!

  • Visit Disney’s Boardwalk area, just a few short steps away from the World Showcase entrance to EPCOT or a quick boat ride from Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  There are some lively street performers along the Boardwalk.  You can also explore the Yacht and Beach Club Resorts, as well as the Boardwalk Inn Resort.  Ride the boat to and from Hollywood Studios, and sit along the beach.  If you time it right, you can watch the fireworks portion of Illuminations from the bridge on the Boardwalk!
  • Downtown Disney is FREE!  Take a splash in the interactive water fountains found at Downtown Disney.  Visit Ghiaradelli Soda Fountain and indulge in some free samples of chocolate.  Do you have a LEGO fan?  The LEGO store at Downtown Disney has several play areas where your children can build with LEGOS, and sometimes they can even build a FREE mini model and take it home!
  • Go on a resort photo hop.  Grab your camera, and hop on a Disney bus to the All Star Movies or Pop Century Resort.  Both of these have huge sculptures to pose with!  Or, visit the Wilderness Lodge for some fabulous photo ops.  The totem pole, as well as the lodge itself offer amazing opportunities for photographing your family.  Take a stroll out the back door of the Grand Floridian, and to your left.  You’ll see a boat dock that faces straight on to Cinderella’s Castle.  That makes the perfect backdrop for a great photo!
  • Take a boat or monorail ride.  You can take the boat from Downtown Disney to the Port Orleans resorts.  Or you could take the boat around the loop in the Bay Lake area.  Hop on the monorail, and take it for a spin around the Magic Kingdom Resorts or even through EPCOT park and back.

One thought on “Try some free activities at Walt Disney World

  1. There are loads of activities going on at the various resorts. While you’re “photo-hopping” check out the campfire and movie nights at Ft. Wilderness, Port Orleans, and others. Don’t forget about taking a dip in one of the dozens of unique swimming pools (provided it’s warm enough outside). We also enjoyed watching Wishes from the beach at the Polynesian. They pipe in the music for the fireworks show, and our little ones who are sensitive to the “booms” of the fireworks loved it since we were far enough away.
