    Hi Denise,

    There are lots of things to do at Disney that are cheap or free that your daughter and her friends can do!

    * Take a boat from Saratoga Springs over to Downtown Disney.  Its a very festive atmosphere during the evening and you can often find live entertainment. Characters In Flight is a lot of fun and not very expensive.

    * Visit Disney's BoardWalk - There is no admission to Disney's BoardWalk area—where live evening entertainment can usually be found— some venues may have a cover charge.  They can rent a Surrey Bike and take it for a spin.  We giggle the whole time we do this. They can hop aboard a Friendship Boat and just relax for awhile.

    * Check out the activities at Saratoga Springs - they will receive a list of activities when they check in.  Many resorts offer Movies Under the Stars - free.

    * View the Electrical Water Pageant from the Contemporary, Polynesian, Grand Floridian or Wilderness Lodge - free.

    * Chip'n Dale's Campfire Sing-a-long at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort - free.

    * View the Magic Kingdom Fireworks from the Grand Floridian or Polynesian Resort - free.

    * Visit Animal Kingdom Lodge - there is an outside viewing area of the Savannah where you can see the animals - free.

    * Visit the other resorts - its a lot of fun to see what the other resorts are like inside.  We love taking the resort monorail and seeing the 3 along the line - free.

    * Miniature Golf - this is a lot of fun and not too pricey.  They can choose from 2 courses: Disney's Fantasia Gardens Course or Disney's Winter Summerland Course.

    Please feel free to visit us with any other questions. Its a pleasure to assist you!

    Wishing your daughter & her friends minnie magical memories :-) Allison
