15 Free Disney World Souvenirs

FREE DISNEY WORLD SOUVENIRS. I bet the title alone got your attention, right?

If you are taking a trip to Disney World, you will want to bring back a few mementos from your trip. Sure, you will probably buy some souvenirs (these are our favorite souvenirs to purchase) but did you know there are FREE Disney World Souvenirs that you can actually take home?

These aren’t junk either, they are things that you will be glad to bring back from vacation.

FREE Disney World Souvenirs

15 FREE Disney World Souvenirs

Take a look at just some of the things you can get for free at Disney World:

1. Autograph Photo Cards

When you dine at restaurants like Be Our Guest and Hollywood & Vine for Minnie’s Seasonal Dining, you will receive autograph cards.

This is at restaurants where characters appear and take photographs but do not do autographs.

The one at Be Our Guest is given at Dinner since Beast makes an appearance but doesn’t sign autographs.

Disney Celebratory Buttons

2. Celebratory Buttons.

If you are staying at a Disney World resort, you can get FREE Disney World Souvenirs by requesting buttons at the front desk.

If you aren’t staying at a Disney Resort, you can find FREE Disney Celebratory buttons at the customer service center.

They are also available at the Disney World ticket counters when you enter the park.

They have them for such celebrations as Birthday, Anniversary, Family Reunion, First Visit, and Honeymoon.

Even if it isn’t your birthday, but it is someone’s in your party, you can get an I’m Celebrating pin!

One of the perks of wearing these FREE Souvenir buttons is that Cast Members will make you feel even more special by giving you a more personalized greeting.

FREE Mickey Mouse Stickers at Disney

3. Disney Stickers

When entering Disney theme parks, many times Cast Members will be passing out Disney stickers. We’ve also seen them given out when you enter stores and restaurants inside the parks.

While the most popular stickers are Mickey Mouse, we have seen other character stickers as well.

When in doubt, ask a greeter or even a photographer! They will give you more than one if you ask and they are great for scrapbooks.

Disney World Park Maps

4. Disney Park Maps

These are at the entrance of each park and what I find really cool is that they have Disney Park maps in different languages!

Why not pick up one to take home for your scrapbook or put it in a frame as a way to remember your fantastic vacation?

Free Drivers License Souvenir

5. Drivers License

If you eat at Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater at Hollywood Studios, you will be dining in a vintage car. You don’t have to be 16 to get a Driver’s License!

Pirate's Adventure Map

6. Pirate’s Treasure Map

Go to A Pirate’s Adventure in Magic Kingdom and get a free treasure map to Adventure Land.

This map is for playing the game, but it is also a great frameable souvenir map!

'Ohana Breakfast Photo Opt

7. Mardi Gras Beads or Lei

If you are staying at Port Orleans, French Quarter, you will get free Mardi Gras beads.

If you stay at Polynesian Resort, you will get a free Lei when you check-in.

Disney Chase Visa Photo Opt

8. FREE Disney Character Meet & Greet Picture

One of the perks to having a Disney Chase Visa Card, you can go to an exclusive Meet & Greet at Epcot and at Hollywood Studios.

You will also get a voucher for a free photo!

Animal Kingdom FREE Field Journal

9. Wilderness Explorer Field Journal

At Animal Kingdom, kids can take part in an adventure learning about Animals and their habitats through their Wilderness Explorer Program.

Each guest can pick up a Field Journal at the Wilderness Explorer headquarters (located on the bridge between the Oasis and Discovery Island) and gather stickers as they complete various activities through the park.

Birthday at Cape May

10. Birthday Card on your Birthday

When visiting Disney World on your birthday, you may find that you get certain perks.

One thing that we often receive is Birthday Cards signed by characters when we dine at certain Disney World table service restaurants.

We’ve received them most often at Disney resort restaurants.

Princess Belle Bookmarks

11. Belle Bookmark

If you go to Enchanted Tales with Belle, you will not only get to have a meet & greet with the princess (with a picture), but you will also get a FREE bookmark!

12. Children’s Activity Menus

When you go to a table service restaurant at Disney, your child will get an activity menu.

If your child is too busy to work on the activity menu during their meal, then be sure to pack it to take home.

They can be used later while you are back in your room or on the car/plane ride back home! You can even take home the crayons.

13. Jedi Diploma Certificate

While at Hollywood Studios, your child can try to battle Darth Vader at Jedi Academy.

If chosen to participate, your child can walk away with an official Jedi Diploma certificate. It is a perfect souvenir to frame.

Epcot Flower & Garden Passport

14. Passports

If you visit EPCOT during one of their many festivals throughout the year, you can pick up a FREE Disney passport.

This passport can be found where to get park maps at the entrance and at various food kiosks.

Kidcot Epcot Fun Spot Suitcase

15. Kidcot Passport Suitcase

At Epcot, check out the Kidcot Fun Stops. There you will find FREE coloring souvenirs for the kids.

They will get a card & sticker set at each country in the World Showcase.

Kidcot Coloring Page

If you ask, they will also write your name or a greeting in their native language on the card.

Getting souvenirs from Disney World is something everyone wants to do, but when you can get FREE Disney souvenirs, it is that much more fun!

Whenever I go to DW and take any of the Disney’s transportation (bus, boat, monorail), I ask for transportation cards. I had a great time taking my off day from the parks and collected a lot of them!


Thursday 22nd of August 2019

That's awesome. I wasn't aware that they still do this!


Friday 24th of August 2018

If you don’t have kids but as an adult you want to act like a kid while your there can the adults participate in the kids activities as well?

Is there a list of rides that pregnant women can't ride ?


Friday 24th of August 2018

Of course! Disney wants all of their guests to feel the magic! Believe me, they encourage you to feel your inner child spirit!

HAY Thanks for all the tips it will help us next month when we come to wdw.

When we went on Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin, one time with my mom, she got a certificate that said Happy Birthday because a cast member noticed that she was wearing her "It's My Birthday" pin. I've gotten a free dessert when I wore mine but that was a few years ago. You can also get a call from Goofy for your birthday if you ask a cast member to put you through to him. At least, we've gotten that twice. Once at Animal Kingdom, and once in the American Pavilion at Epcot's World Showcase.

If you ask at Guest Services, they have Safety cards with Timone and Pumbaa on them, with messages like, "Don't wait too late to hydrate," and "It's a rope, not a ride," among others. I think there are 12 or 15, total.

Each of the watercraft have transportation cards, if you ask the captain or any cast member on board or at the entrance/exit of the boat. I think they have one for each of the monorails, too. It used to be that you could sit up in the very front of the monorail and get a Co-Pilot card. I know they did away with passengers at the front, but you may still be able to get the card.

You can get a list of all the penny presses for the park by going to Guest Services. If you get your child's first haircut at the Barber Shop on Main Street, next to the Emporium, the child will receive a certificate , which has the baby Disney Characters Fab 5 on it. It's adorable.

At Disney Springs, they give out free samples of chocolate squares at Ghirardelli Chocolate Store.

If you buy a hat at any of the shops, they'll usually embroider it for free, just ask a cast member or Guest Services where you bought it for directions to where to get it embroidered. At Magic Kingdom, they have a spot by the hat shop on Main Street. I know Disney Springs has a place, too. Speaking of buying things, you can ask if they have any of the Mickey head shaped confetti to throw in the bag - it goes great for scrapbooking. If you don't want to carry around all the stuff you've bought in the park, just have them send it to Guest Services for pick-up. If you're staying on property, they'll send it to your room, I believe, too. There's a lot of stuff to do at each of the on-property resorts. Some of the resorts have s'mores and campfire stories. Boardwalk has magic shows and juggling and other street performers. And some of the resorts have free movie nights outside. Disney Springs has concerts and a splash pad for the kids to play around in. I think Fort Wilderness has hayrides. Most of the resorts have a fun little club house to go and play air hockey, pool, table tennis, video games, board games, shuffleboard, hula hoop, activity and coloring, watch movies, etc., besides just enjoying the swimming pool. They also have pin trading boards available at most of them.

My family always gets the refillable cups! We figure we're going to drink our body weight in drinks anyways, and it's fun to see how the designs change every year!
