GOING to Disney World is a magical experience – but it comes with a pretty hefty price tag.
A travel agent and Disney-fan has shared some things you can get for free so you won’t break the bank while you’re there.
Jill Beignet posted a video on Tiktok revealing five things available free of charge which will help you have fun at Disney.
She said: “Number one free thing at Disney World: outdoor movie nights at your resort.
“A few times a week at almost every Disney resort, they’ll set up what’s called Movies Under the Stars. They’ll show movies on this giant inflatable movie screen.
“If you bring some blankets or lawn chairs, maybe some snacks, it’s a fantastic way to end your day at your resort.
“Second free thing at Disney World: the Play Disney Parks app.
“This app is full of mini games that interact with the park itself and it’s a great way to use up your time waiting in line for rides.
“Number three: celebration buttons [badges] for everything from birthdays, honeymoons and anniversaries to whatever you want to celebrate.
“Celebration buttons are available at guest relations and they’re basically a free souvenir.
“They also signal to cast members that you might be the right person for a magical moment.
“Our celebration buttons got me and my husband several free extras on our honeymoon.
Number four, she explained is pixie dusting at Sir Mickey’s in the Magic Kingdom.
“If you stop in at Sir Mickey’s gift shop in Fantasyland and you see a cast member who isn’t super busy, you can ask them to give you a pixie dusting, which means that they say a little poem and sprinkle you with a glitter wand, but trust me it’s a lot of fun.
“And lastly, at number five: WiFi. Whether you’re at a park or a resort you can get free WiFi for your smart device, which makes sense considering that Disney is expecting you to spend quite a bit of money on the My Disney Experience app and you need WiFi for that.”
The video has been watched more than 13,000 times and commenters have shared their own experiences of using the tips.
One person wrote: “I went to the park for my birthday and had the button. Every character meet restaurant I got an autographed birthday card – it was amazing!”
Another commented: “As for Movies Under the Stars, Riviera actually sets their up so people at the pool can watch as well.”
