ALL the Walt Disney World Resort Activities You Can Do Right Now!

Let’s just say that a lot has changed at Disney World since the resort reopened in 2020 after its temporary closure.

There’s still plenty to do at Disney World!

And although we’re starting to see the return of many entertainment options and activities, others still haven’t resumed.

In addition to attractions, there is a lot of stuff to do at Disney World, even right now. So here’s a full list of all the activities that are available at the resort.

Magic Kingdom

Capture Your Moment

Earlier this year, Disney World announced the new Capture Your Moment service that allows you to book a private session with a PhotoPass photographer. So if you need to catch that perfect moment at the parks, here’s your chance!


The new service is currently available at Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Animal Kingdom.  For $50, you can book a 20-minute appointment with a PhotoPass photographer during normal park hours.

Dessert Cruise

As of September 18, one of the best ways to view fireworks at Magic Kingdom is returning! The Ferrytale Desserts and Fireworks Cruise will sail you around Seven Seas Lagoon, where you’ll learn fun stories about the park. You’ll also have access to a selection of specialty drinks (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) and desserts.

Fireworks in Magic Kingdom

The cruise is $99 for adults and $69 for children ages 3 to 9. This price covers all drinks, treats, and some fun activities onboard for kids, along with “Mickey Vision” glasses that will give you a new perspective on Magic Kingdom’s fireworks.

Pascal Scavenger Hunt

So what about an activity that’s 100% free (well, free if you have a park ticket)? If you find yourself around the Tangled restrooms in Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom, you’ll discover a ton of hidden Pascals in the area! Can you find them all?

You’ll also see Maximums’ hoof prints here!

We won’t spoil the scavenger hunt for you, but at least 10 Pascals are hiding all around the area — happy hunting!

EPCOT Festival Scavenger Hunts

Every EPCOT Festival brings a scavenger hunt that is fun for the entire family. And each festival has its own theme — for example, the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival sends guests out to search for hidden Remys. The Festival of Holidays sends guests in search of hidden Olafs! The EPCOT Festival of the Arts scavenger hunt sends guests on a search for art. And the EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival challenges guests with a hunt for Spike the Bee.

There’s also a fun Easter Egg hunt just before Easter! And EVERYONE who purchases a festival scavenger hunt map and completes the scavenger hunt gets a prize (and they’re usually pretty nifty)!

Savi’s Workshop

Have you ever wanted to build your own lightsaber? Well, you need to head straight to Savi’s Workshop (reservations highly recommended) at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and indulge in an experience that will make you feel like the Force has chosen you to become a Jedi.

Why buy a lightsaber when you can build one?

The cost is $199.99, but you get way more than a lightsaber with that price — you get a Star Wars experience you’re not soon to forget.

Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Affection Section

If you take the Wildlife Express Train to Rafiki’s Planet Watch, you’ll be able to get some actual one-on-one time with animals at Animal Kingdom’s Affection Section. You’ll be able to pet some pigs, sheep, and goats!

Affection Section

And it’s entirely free as long as you have a park ticket to get into Animal Kingdom. It’s a fun activity for kids, and adults enjoy it, too!

Veterinary Treatment Center

Also over at Rafiki’s Planet Watch, you can watch real-life veterinarians work with some of Disney’s animals. Have you ever seen a Gila Monster get an MRI? Have you ever seen a bird get a check-up? If not, you may see these (and more!) happen in the center.


This is one of the most fascinating things you can do at Animal Kingdom, and no two visits are alike.

Animation Experience

Another awesome activity you can participate in at Rafiki’s Planet Watch is the Animation Experience. This is where you can learn to draw some of Disney’s most popular characters in a lesson led by a Disney character artist.

Learning to draw

So grab your pencil and paper, because it’s time to start drawing Disney-style. The class takes about 20-25 minutes and at the end of it, you’ll get to keep your sketch as a souvenir. All supplies are also included, which is pretty amazing considering this activity is also free.

Disney Springs


If you’ve ever wanted to see Disney Springs from above, you might want to consider a short trip in the Aerophile Tethered Balloon. The balloon takes guests 300 feet into the air above the waterfront for around 8-10 minutes.


Even better? It’s a relatively inexpensive activity — just $20 for adults and $15 for children ages 3 to 8. AND if you visit before 10AM, tickets are only $10 per person, regardless of age. It’s like Soarin‘, but for real!

Or if you’d prefer to just get in a car and float — yes, we said float — around Disney Springs, you can hop in one of the Amphicars that will take you from land to sea in a few minutes flat! And these are VINTAGE cars specifically designed in the 1960s to be amphibious.

Boat Cars at Disney Springs

Guests can take a 20-minute guided tour on the waters of Lake Buena Vista in an amphicar for $125 per car, with each car accommodating 3-4 people. Tours are available to be booked from 10AM to 10PM daily, depending on weather.
