Happy Monday!!! I hope that you had a relaxing time with your family and friends this holiday season.
Now that the holidays are over you may be thinking about ways to cut costs for 2011. I know one thing is for sure...we will be going to Walt Disney World in 2011....but I am always on the hunt for a deal or even a freebie!!! Did you know that kids can get a free souvenir at Epcot???
All too often I hear people say that Epcot is not a kid park. There is a ton of fun for the entire family as well as countless opportunities for children to learn. One of my favorite opportunities takes place at Kidcot Fun Stops. Kidcot is a fun way for kids to learn about the different countries from around World Showcase and Future World. In addition to learning your children will be able to take home a souvenir for free!!!
Kidcot Fun Stops can be found throughout Epcot, these are places where children can go and interact with Disney cast members and do a fun activity. Younger travelers are encouraged to draw, write, and stamp at these locations. But the best part of it is...it’s free!!!!
My favorite part comes in at World Showcase. Each county has a Kidcot location; your child will have the opportunity to interact with a native of the country you are visiting in. What you need to do is start your adventure in any country that you chose. Let the cast member know that you are beginning your adventure with them. The cast member will present your child with their very own mask. You can then travel around to each country, and stop at the designated Kidcot Station. Each station provides a craft-filled fun time for your child. Your child will receive a different adornment for their mask at each station. In addition to the mask you can also collect stamps at each location. This make for a sort of make-shift passport for your child.
At the end of your adventure, you child will have learned about each country and interacted with natives to each country, as well as created a free souvenir.
If that does not say good free fun, I don't know what does!! :0)
See you real soon!!
