All you have to do is show up during the posted time for the nightly campfire, and voila, you have a free dessert! Guests can roast as many complimentary marshmallows as they would like! All Walt Disney World Resorts offer weekly movies under the stars! Each resort will bring out a giant blow-up screen and projector as the sun starts to set to play a Disney movie! There are towels available to lay out and sit on. Some resorts will have this set up in the pool area, some on the hub grass, and at Yacht and Beach Club, it's a movie in the sand! This is dependent on the weather, but at some resorts, they do bring the movie indoors if it rains! Keep in mind the times for these activities vary based on the resort and the time of year.

Free in the Park Activities

The Wilderness must be explored! Become a wilderness explorer in Animal Kingdom and collect all of the Wilderness Explorer badges. Guests can pick up a wilderness explorer booklet at any of the wilderness explorer locations throughout the park. To earn a badge, you will have to interact with cast members to complete various activities and tasks! Don’t worry if you don’t complete this adventure in one day; guests are more than welcome to bring back their booklet time and time again!
