If you’ve ever been to Walt Disney World or you’re planning a Disney trip for the family, you understand all too well how expensive a Disney vacation can be.

Fortunately, there are lots of fun ways you can save during your trip to “the happiest place on earth.” And whether you’re on a tight budget or an unlimited budget, who doesn’t love getting a little something for free?

Check out these 10 cool freebies at the resort and theme parks near Orlando, Florida:

  1. Celebration buttons: Why not celebrate your trip with a special occasion button? You can get buttons for all sorts of occasions, including your birthday, wedding, anniversary, engagement, family reunion or first visit to Disney World. Or simply pick up a general “I’m Celebrating” button, and write in your own event.
  2. Club Cool soda: Thirsty? DisneyFanatic.com recommends that you head to Club Cool in Epcot’s Future World to sample different sodas from around the world, all for free.
  3. Photos: You don’t have to buy a photo in order to use PhotoPass. Simply ask any Disney PhotoPass cast member to take your family’s picture with your camera or phone.
  4. Leis: Grab yourself a free lei by visiting the front desk at the Polynesian Village Resort.
  5. Water: Purchasing drinks for the family quickly adds up. Fortunately, you can grab a free cup of ice water by visiting any counter service restaurant. All you need to do is ask!
  6. Cool collector cards: Who doesn’t love a fun, a free souvenir or something you can use for a vacation scrapbook? According to DisneyTouristBlog, Disney transportation cast members – bus, boat or monorail – should have trading cards available if you ask them. They sometimes run out, but don’t give up – just ask the next transportation operator. The Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom attraction/game also give out free trading cards at the Fire Station on Main Street. You can collect five free spell cards per day for free!
  7. Chocolate: The Ghirardelli Chocolate Shop in Downtown Disney offers a variety of free chocolate samples. What a great sweet (and free!) treat!
  8. Autographs: Your kids will have a blast tracking down all their favorite characters and getting their autographs. And don’t forget about the cast members!
  9. Package delivery: Don’t lug around all your Mickey Mouse purchases like a pack mule. If you’re staying at a Walt Disney World resort hotel, your park purchases can be delivered to your hotel for free.
  10. Kids’ hair flair: According to the DisneyTouristBlog, the Harmony Barber Shop on Main Street in the Magic Kingdom will sprinkle “pixie dust” or confetti on your child’s hair for free.
