When You Buy a Disney World Ticket Did You Know All These Free Extras Are Included?
The kids are going to go wild for these cool perks.
Disney World prices may have gone up earlier this month, but there's still plenty of free fun to be had once you're inside the gates of the Happiest Place on Earth. Next time you find yourself at Disney, here are five super activities to keep in mind—no additional cash, credit, or "I'll venmo you for it" required.
1. Visit the art gallery inside of Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge.
This often overlooked gem spotlights an incredible collection of African art. Get lost in the artwork and put your fancy new iPhone camera to work.
2. Check out the Kidcot Fun Stops at Epcot.
Leave extra room in your carry-on, parents. At Epcot, Disney World offers the little ones a chance to collect stamps and make their own customized souvenier at "any or all 11 of these World Showcase craft stations." Of course your kid is going to choose to do all 11, don't say we didn't warn you.

3. Let the children become Wilderness Explorers at Animal Kingdom.
Another great freebie for kids, this activity is an action-packed scavenger hunt based on Russell's Boy Scout–esque troop from the movie Up. Kids have the chance collect various badges around the park as they check challenges off of their list. Who's got hints for the Dinosaur Badge?
4. Enjoy amazing activities at Epcot festivals.
Timing your trip to hit one of these popular Epcot events? During Epcot's three festivals (Food and Wine Festival, Festival of the Holidays, and Flower and Garden Festival) the resort has an impressive lineup of demos, workshops, and nightly concerts. Check the Epcot calendar for more information here.
5. Walk Disney's BoardWalk.
Hey, there's really no price you can put on a breathtaking Orlando sunset.
