11 Free Things To Do At Disney World

Disney World is a wonderful place, but it’s expensive, especially for families. There are ways to save money, but it can still cost more than other vacations. 
But not everything at Walt Disney World costs money. In this episode, I share 11 free things you can do at Disney World. Our list includes fun activities at each of the four parks and the Disney World resorts. 

How To Visit Disney World Using Points & Miles

Several years ago, I was introduced to the world of travel rewards. I learned that by getting certain credit cards, I could earn rewards and redeem them to cover our family’s travel expenses. In fact, our very first trip using points and miles was to the Orlando area. We visited Disney World and Universal Studios Orlando on that trip. We earned points with two hotel rewards programs and split our trip up between stays at two area hotels within those programs so we could cover the entire expense with points. We flew Southwest using Rapid Rewards points. Also, we earned enough points to qualify for a Southwest Companion Pass, which helped us save even more money. We rented a vehicle for the week, but I don’t remember if we covered the expense with rewards.

How To Save Money At Disney World

From Disney tickets to hotels or vacation rentals to flights and other travel expenses, taking your family to Disney is no small financial feat. 

When we search for money-saving tips, we want action steps that will reduce our trip’s cost. There are plenty of ways to squeeze more value out of a Disney vacation or save time in the parks, but these Disney hacks often increase trip expenses. 

We’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite money-saving strategies when planning a family trip to Walt Disney World. There are also some Disney World tips for saving money in the parks.

Where To Stay At Disney World

Choosing where to stay at Disney World is one of the most important parts of vacation planning if you’re headed to the parks with your family. As one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, the Lake Buena Vista and Orlando area offer endless accommodation options for Disney World guests. Despite all of the choices, one of the first decisions you must make is whether to stay on property at one of Disney World’s resorts or off property somewhere else in the area.
