THIS POST MAY CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINKS. PLEASE READ MY DISCLOSURE FOR MORE INFO.
Free Things to Do at Disney Resorts
Let’s first start with the incredible hotels and resorts at Walt Disney World. It’s important to note that after the pandemic, many resorts require a hotel stay reservation or a dining reservation to get past the parking attendant.
You can bypass this by parking at Disney Springs and taking a bus or boat (transportation options depend on where you’re going and coming from) to your desired location.
Also, you can use Disney transportation from any of the theme parks or other hotels that you may be enjoying at the time.
ORDER NOW to secure your Walt Disney World theme park ticket! GET MY TICKETS.
1. View Animals for Free
The animal viewing section at the Animal Kingdom Lodge is a very popular Disney freebie, as is the resort tour at the same hotel.
The fun part?
You don’t need a Disney ticket to visit Animal Kingdom for viewing the majestic creatures. All you have to do is visit the Animal Kingdom Lodge and walk around the common areas of the resort.
2. Do the Disney Resort Tours
You don’t need to stay at that particular resort to be able to enjoy the free tour. However, you may need a reservation to enjoy this Disney perk.
Always check with front desk to see if there will be any tours for that day.
Times do change frequently, but once you’re on the tour you’ll learn some amazing history and secrets about each Disney resort.
Some of the Disney Resorts that may require a reservation are:
- Fort Wilderness Lodge
- Animal Kingdom Lodge
- The Grand Floridian Resort and Spa
- Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club
Though the resort tours are also technically free, you do need to be booked at one of the Disney Resorts to reserve a seat. I’d recommend calling ahead to see if the resort tour you’re considering would like you to RSVP in advance.
3. Do a Monorail Bar Hop
And it’s absolutely free!
All you have to do is catch a bus ride from Disney Springs to one of the Magic Kingdom resorts of your choosing and start your adventure.
You can also book a dining experience at one of the resorts on the monorail loop to save you the time of having to wait for a bus at Disney Springs.
4. Tour the Disney Resort Christmas Decorations
Another one of my personal favorite resort freebies is to go resort hopping in search for all the Disney Christmas Decorations.
This can be done during the holiday season from November until early January. It’s a fun activity that’s even better with a free sightseeing ride on the monorail around the Magic Kingdom resorts.

5. Resort Hop at Disney World
You can resort hop throughout the year for free.
This is one of my favorite things to do with family who come into town and don’t want to spend money on theme park tickets.
The Walt Disney World Resort Hotels are attractions in themselves. They all have a unique theme and story to them.
Plus, the dining is usually superb at each resort.
You may also be able to participate in some of the activities that may be happening in the common areas of the hotels.
Activities such as catching Cinderella’s grand entrance at the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa or doing the Disney Pin Trading.

- The pool(s) at the Disney Vacation Club Resort where you are staying

7. Watch Campfire and Movies
Once you’ve had your cowboy sing-along, you’ll be able to enjoy a classic Disney movie under the stars at the Campsites in Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort.
You can also watch campfire movies for free at the following Disney World Resorts:
- Beach Club Resort
- Grand Floridian Resort
- Art of Animation
- Port Orleans-Riverside
- Contemporary Resort
This is just a list of a few of my favorite resorts to enjoy a campfire and a movie.
It’s important to know that many of the Disney Resorts offer “campfire” movies on the lawn depending on the weather and time of year. So, be sure to always check the schedule on or before your visit.
8. Watch a Geyser Explode
If you head to the back of Fort Wilderness Lodge, you’ll be able to see a geyser reminiscent of Old Faithful erupting every hour on the hour from around 7 a.m. until 10:00 p.m.
9. Explore the Woodsy Area Around Fort Wilderness Lodge
The classic charm of Florida wildlife can be seen around the Disney Resort. However, the resort hotel that displays this natural allure is Fort Wilderness Lodge.
This Disney resort hotel features pathways that allow you to venture deep into the natural backwoods of Florida.
10. Play with Butterflies
You can visit the Butterfly Garden located in the Contemporary Resort for free. This colorful garden is located on the backside of the lobby near the pool and lake.
You can always check with the Gardening Hotline at (407) 938-3900 if you want more information as things are constantly changing post pandemic.
11. Free Art Classes
If you’re in the mood to create, you can take one of the free art classes offered at the Art of Animation Resort. This class is limited to resort guests, but always check to see if you can register anyway.
UPDATE: During the phased reopening of Disney Resorts, the free art classes are currently suspended.
12. Visit Disney’s Boardwalk for Free
You can visit Disney’s Boardwalk for free at any time. The Boardwalk Resort allows you to park for free for a few hours so you can watch the various talented street performers solo or with your family.

You can also get a great view for the fireworks from the:

Questions You May Have About Finding Free Things to Do at Disney World
Let’s go through a few of the most commonly asked questions that I receive.
Is Disney World free on your birthday?
Walt Disney World is still the ultimate place to celebrate your birthday!
In 2009, they had one of the best promotions going on called “What Will You Celebrate.” This incredible yearlong promotion allowed you to come to any of the Disney Parks for free on your birthday.
Unfortunately, the deal ended on December 31, 2009.
Remember that you can always get cool Disney Freebies on your birthday such as the Happy Birthday button from Guest Relations and possibly some free dessert if you continue to let Cast Members know it’s your big day!
How can I do Disney for cheap?
Now that’s a big question to answer. In order for you to conquer your trip to Disney World at a good cost, you’ll have to budget appropriately.
Yeah, I know we all hate that word budget, but in order for you to make the most of your money you have to think about these five things:
- Which park or parks you want to visit?
- What will be the total cost of your trip?
- How to save for Disney in 6-months?
- When to book your vacation?
- How to track your spending while on vacation?
I recommend buying the multi-day ticket if you’re planning a vacation or visiting Walt Disney World for more than three days in one year.
Plus, you can save $20 when purchasing the 3-day or longer tickets online.
Booking through certain travel agencies or authorized Disney planners gives you an opportunity to set up a payment plan. Once you’ve paid for half of your vacation, continue saving the other 50%.
Final Thoughts on Things to Do at Disney World for Free
Despite the fun, visiting Disney can get very expensive, very quickly–especially if you’re not traveling alone.
Even so, there are a few gems you can do without adding to your total vacation costs. Sightseeing at Disney World certainly doesn’t disappoint!
I hope this list of free things to do at Disney World helps you successfully plan your next theme park trip!
