Starting a Disney collection can be a lot of fun, but purchasing souvenirs for your collection can easily become quite expensive. Luckily, you can find some great free souvenirs at Walt Disney World. By collecting these free souvenirs, you can create a Disney collection to remember your vacation by. So, what types of free souvenirs can you collect from Walt Disney World?

Disney park maps are a fun souvenir to collect. You can find them for free at many locations on Disney property. If you collect maps from multiple trips to Walt Disney World, it can be fun to see how the park maps have changed over the years. You can also use park maps to add a little Disney magic to your vacation scrapbook.

Unused FastPasses and Ride Swap tickets are another great free Disney souvenir to collect. You can collect these tickets from many of your favorite attractions for free. Once you return home, your FastPasses or Ride Swap tickets can be displayed in many creative ways, such as collages, shadow boxes, or in your vacation scrapbook.

While your Disney park ticket might not be free, it won’t cost any extra to save your park ticket as a souvenir. Many park tickets have different designs, making if fun to see how many of these different designs you can collect. Much like park maps and FastPasses, park tickets will also be a fun addition to any Disney scrapbook.

Many children love meeting Disney characters for pictures and autographs. Whether you purchase the autograph books at Disney or bring your own, character autographs can  be an excellent free souvenir. Some autograph books you can purchase on sites such as even have places to add pictures of your children & the character next to the character’s autograph. Another great idea for your character autograph collection is a picture frame mat. Just bring a mat for all the characters to sign. When you return home from your vacation, you can frame a vacation picture with this character autograph mat around it for a fabulous Disney souvenir.

Celebration buttons are another fun item to collect from your Disney vacation. You can get these buttons for free at Guest Services. If you wear your button while in the parks, cast members will often join in the celebration by telling you “congratulations” or “happy birthday.” If you’re especially lucky, you may even get extra FastPasses or a free dessert. Once your vacation is over, you can display your buttons in several creative ways including shadow boxes and celebration button magnets.

The soaps and shampoos at Walt Disney World Resort hotels also make for a great free collection. If you ask mousekeeping for some more soaps and shampoos, they will generally bring you a whole bag full of them! They get this request often and are happy to comply. The packaging of these products changes occasionally and is generally designed with Mickey Mouse. A collection of Disney soaps and shampoos is a great way to bring some of the magic of Disney to your home. You can use soaps and shampoos at home or just leave them out to decorate.

  1. Thanks for these ideas guys! I haven’t actually been to WDW since I was 13 (now 25) and I can’t wait to put these to use! But I definitely do freebies on the cruise! They have scavenger hunts (with cool fold outs), animator drawings from class, and cool golden mickey confetti at the final play that I always grab!

  2. i’m glad i’m not the only one who keep this stuff! i have the timon and pumba cards…mickey confetti from the day parade at magic kingdom, buttons…but I think the most strange thing I kept were leaves that Chip and dale picked for me during this past Star wars weekends. They’re all dried up now but i have one leaf on my nightstand and another in my car until i can figure out what i want to do with them 🙂

  3. Timon and Pumba safety cards at Animal Kingdom are free and funny, even my n11 year old son got a laugh out of them and asked if I had gotten one for his scrapbook. At The Art of Animation in Hollywood Studios you can take a class with a real Disney artist and you will be able to keep your drawing. The animators also give away their drawing to one lucky guest.
