With the announcement of the soon-to-be-released Disney Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lane Attractions Selections services, the harsh reality is clear: the days of free FastPasses are no more.
While many bemoan this change, there are still several services that remain free at Disney World, and we’re counting them down today.
Here are eight things at Walt Disney World that are still free now that FastPass isn’t!
Transportation can be a life-saver, especially when you need to cool off with A/C and get back to the resort!
Live entertainment is still free of charge at the Disney World parks! Parades, cavalcades, live music, characters, and shows are all still included with your park admission.
Live entertainment is just one of those extra bits of magic at the Disney parks. Although some entertainment is not yet back, those that have returned remain complimentary.
Apps like My Disney Experience, the free version of Disney Genie, and Play Disney Parks are all still free. These apps, especially My Disney Experience, are major in keeping your Disney World trip on track.
Things like Mobile Orders, wait times, and more are reliant on having these apps, so it’s a good thing they’re still free. Of course, the new Disney Genie service will have two paid aspects within My Disney Experience, but many important features remain free in the app.
Scavenger Hunts and Games
The Disney Parks and Resorts have even more to offer than just rides, dining, amenities, and entertainment! You can also take part in a range of activities and games, including fun scavenger hunts.
Whether it’s the Wilderness Explorers activity in Animal Kingdom, the Finding Dory’s Friends Scavenger Hunt in EPCOT, or a game at your Resort, these are a great way to have fun with the whole family at the Parks and Resorts for free!
It might seem like a small thing, but free maps can be a big help! Sure, you can use the map on your phone, but there’s something about having that physical map to fold and refold all day.
Paper maps are also really helpful if you’re trying to conserve your phone’s battery life. Plus, there’s a nice nostalgic feel to them, and they make priceless (free!) souvenirs.
This is another one that might seem small, but it can end being a big deal! Celebration buttons are a way to show what special occasion you’re celebrating at Disney World!
Whether it’s a birthday, an anniversary, a graduation, or you just want to celebrate being in the World, these buttons will help you show off your special occasion!
Free first aid at the parks is a major help, especially when an emergency happens! Whether you need some free aspirin or have a cut or a scrape, First Aid Centers are a great free service at the parks.
First Aid is usually located toward the front of each park near guest services and are always found near the Baby Care Centers (another awesome free service)!
The fun doesn’t stop at the parks; there’s plenty to do at the resorts as well! Disney World hotels host a wide range of events all day long that are sure to keep the whole family entertained.
One of the most popular resort events is Movies Under the Stars! At many Disney World hotels, they’ll set up a big screen outside so everyone can sit and enjoy a Disney movie!
