When most people think Disney World the word FREE does not even come to mind. Did you know that you can find quite a few freebies that can be fun souvenirs. Yes, you read that correctly: FREE. I don’t know about you, but I love freebies, especially freebies at Disney World! Let me share with you a few favorites that we have found in our adventures around Disney World.
Freebies At Disney World
Take a peek at these fun freebies at Disney World that my family just loves!
Disney Transport Official Collection Cards
In all my years of visiting the parks, I never knew that these fun little cards even existed until our recent trip. These cards can be collected from bus, monorail, tram, boat & Minnie Van transportation. They have been in circulation since 2006. I still can’t believe I did not know about these until now. It is kind of like a little hidden secret. You must ask a cast member that works in transportation for these cards, as they do not just freely hand them out. It is possible for a cast member not to have any left when you ask so don’t get disappointed. You will just have to keep asking at other stops during your travels. You may also get the same card more than once. In my experience, each cast member would smile then ask if I was looking for a specific card.
Fun facts and Did you Know questions/answers can be found on the back of each card as well as a tip on where to find hidden Mickey’s. It was so much fun to collect these as we traveled around the Disney World property. I was able to collect 10 different cards this trip and I am excited to see which ones I get the next time we visit.
There is always something we can celebrate on a Disney World vacation! From Birthdays, Anniversaries, Honeymoon, life achievements or even just your very first visit. These buttons can be found at any guest services location as well as in any of the gift shops throughout the entire Walt Disney World property. Ask any cast member for a celebration button to let them know what you are celebrating. They will give you the one you would like as well as make it extra special by writing your name on your button.
As you wear your buttons throughout your day don’t be surprised to hear a Happy Birthday or Congratulations from cast members and even from other park guests. While it is not a guarantee, there have been times that we were surprised with a fun treat such as a free cookie or milk shake. All because we were wearing our celebration buttons. This special kind of magic may not happen for everyone, but you never know! So grab your Celebration Button and wear it proudly.
Timon & Pumba Safety Cards
These cards have illustrations of Timon & Pumba demonstrating park safety. These are especially fun for little kiddos but are very educational. Disney World’s number one priority is guest safety and these little cards have great tips to keep you and your family safe. You can find these by asking for them at any Guest Services location and you will sometimes get them from Cast Members if they are out of the transportation cards. Such fun freebies at Disney World!
At the entry to each park or on the counters of the checkout inside the gift shops and guest services, you can pick up park maps. These maps can be seasonally depending on special events and new attractions. They make great souvenirs! By collecting them each time you visit, you can later look back to see how the parks have changed throughout the years.
Mickey Mouse Stickers
Kids love stickers! OK, who am I kidding, some adults love stickers too. Disney World hands out tons of Mickey Mouse stickers to park guests. Did you know you can ask for these stickers as well. Some of the spots you may them are from cast members, Disney Vacation Club stands, gift shop checkout counters. All of these usually keep rolls of stickers so next time you are in the parks remember to ask for some!
