    How you you get the most free stuff

    Hi Chet!

    Wow...that's a GREAT question! 

    You can visit Downtown Disney, even park there, for free?    It's fun to go "window-shopping", take in the sights and sounds, enjoy free entertainment, play with Lego's, and enjoy the interactive fountains.

    Take a stroll around Disney's Boardwalk for free!  Enjoy the street performers, such as jugglers, jazz ensembles, even fire-eaters!  Sit & watch the people & the Friendship Boats come & go.  You can even catch a glimpse of EPCOT's Illuminations!

    Visit the many Walt Disney World Resorts, for free - especially around the holidays, with the beautiful decorations.  And at Christmas time, see the amazing gingerbread and chocolate creations!  Some of the hotels, such as the Grand Floridian and Polynesian, offer amazing views of the fireworks displays and Electrical Water Pageant.

    If you are staying at a Disney Resort, you can use Disney Transportation for free, including the buses, monorails and Friendship boats.  Sign up for free tours, offered at many of the resorts, even if you are not a guest of that resort. 

    "Chip n Dale's Campfire Singalong" at Fort Wilderness Campground & Resort is free.  Enjoy an authentic campfire, singalong with Chip and Dale, and watch a free outdoor movie under the stars!  Similar campfires and/or outdoor movies are offered at some of the other Disney Resorts, such as the Beach Club, the Polynesian, and Old Key West Resort.

    After dusk, walk out onto the viewing areas at the Animal Kingdom Lodge to see some of the animals there, for free!  It is a beautiful Resort to tour and notice the special architecture and artwork.

    And while you are visiting all of these FREE Disney locations, make sure you turn it into a scavenger hunt for Hidden Mickey's!

    I hope this list is helpful and gets you started in your adventure!
