I could spend all day watching the zebras and giraffes and it wouldn’t cost me a dime.
Vacations can add up, and while the happiest place on Earth isn’t the cheapest place on Earth, there are still things you can do to soak in the magic without spending an arm and a leg.
And while people go to Disney World for the four theme parks, there are so many other things on Disney property to do and see (some of them don’t even cost a thing). Here are my favorites:
Go to Animal Kingdom Lodge and spot the giraffes.
Do a scavenger hunt.
Listen to live music on the Trader Sam’s patio at the Polynesian Resort.
Meet the Coca-Cola bear.
Watch the Electric Water Pageant.
Visit the horses at the Tri-Circle-D ranch.
Look for Hidden Mickeys.
Check out the glass artist at Arribas Brothers in Disney Springs.
Wash your hands at Basin.

Relax in a hammock at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort.
Walk the Boardwalk Inn and see live entertainment like jugglers, magicians, and more.
Visit the T-Rex Cafe Play Zone.

Listen to a concert at Disney Springs.
Finally, park for free at Disney Springs.
