Can you think of a better way to spend the day than in the most magical place on earth? What if that day was completely free? Believe it or not, there are many free things to see and do at the Walt Disney World Resort. From princess parades to fire-eaters, we’ve found some of the best free activities for everyone in the family.
Start your day off at the newly refurbished, Disney Springs. Formally known as Downtown Disney, this revamped town center has dozens of new shops and restaurants to browse. Enjoy live music throughout the springs, as well as authentic Irish dancing, a cappella singers and the occasional live DJ. Ready for a sweet treat? The Ghirardelli chocolate shop offers guests free chocolate just for visiting the store.
For the little ones, stop into the LEGO Imagination Center. Here, they can create and construct anything imaginable, and with more LEGOs than they have ever seen before. Next, be sure to catch the princess parade near the Bibbidi-Bobbidi Boutique. Not your average Disney parade, the children from the boutique are transformed into little princes and princesses and stroll through the town like royalty.
Later in the afternoon, hop on the monorail and explore a few of Disney’s most picturesque resorts. You will travel through the Polynesian, the Grand Floridian and the Contemporary Resort. With extravagantly themed lobbies and some of Walt Disney World’s most luxurious pools, you’ll want to stay all day! The monorail is also a great way to see more of the Disney property. You’ll pass directly in front of the Magic Kingdom and travel right through Epcot.
Kick the night off at Disney’s BoardWalk. This 1940’s themed entertainment, shopping and dining area is the perfect place to relax, watch the sunset and unwind after an eventful day of exploring. And when the sun goes down, the street performers come out. Fire-eaters, jugglers and comedians line the river in an impressive display of skill and a little bit of danger.
The absolute best way to end a day at Walt Disney World is with a bang. And you’re in luck! Around 9 p.m., you’ll be able to watch the Epcot fireworks show right from the BoardWalk.
