Looking for Free Fun at Disney World?

Money Saver Monday!!

Happy Monday! I hope that you had a weekend full of pixie dust. 

Disney World is not short in the area of entertainment but many of the wonderful things to do cost money. How about some free options? My family and I love to take walks at the various Disney Resorts...many people would call this resort hoping. What we have found is that all of the resorts offer some fabulous options for free fun for the entire family. Between you and me, many of the options are great for romantic evenings as well. :0)

Get your walking shoes on because the free fun includes a nice stroll. 

Take a stroll over to Wilderness Lodge, there you can find a mini version of Old Faithful, the geyser. The geyser spouts out between 7:00 & 10:00 PM. It can be found in the back past the pool.

Why not watch Wishes from a different location? Take a walk over to The Grand Floridian boat dock. There you will be able to take advantage of the audio soundtrack of Wishes that is piped into Narcoossees restaurant from the Magic Kingdom. It is truly a beautiful sight to see. 

During the day take a walk through the woods from Wilderness Lodge to Fort Wilderness.

 Visiting Animal Kingdom Lodge is a must on every WDW vacation for our family. The lobby alone is just stunning. I highly recommend heading there around dusk and going out to the viewing area. You will be in for a beautiful treat when you experience the animals coming out for the night. Often times once it is dark there are CM's there with night vision goggles for your viewing pleasure.

My very favorite place to be is the Polynesian at night. Tiki torches light the pathways of this ultra romantic Disney resort. As you walk the pathways make a stop at the beach to view the electric water pageant and fireworks from Magic Kingdom. 

View from the beach.

These are some of my favorite free things to do while I am at Walt Disney World. What do you do for free fun?
