The best things to do in Orlando for free

by on Apr.01, 2013, under Travel

I know exactly what you’re thinking. “Free in Orlando? Whatever!” Well in actuality there are lots of free attractions in Orlando. Now obviously they aren’t going to be as awesome as the more established attractions in Orlando, but if you’re on a low budget and you are looking to fill a day in, don’t forget to check a couple of these out.

The Boardwalk in Walt Disney World

Take a relaxed stroll along the Boardwalk at Disney World. A re-creation of a 1930s-style Atlantic coastal town. The 45-acre waterfront district is well-known for its very own nightclubs and entertainment hot spots, however the entire family can enjoy the various magicians, street musicians, and entertainers free of charge.

Celebration – A Town Built by Disney

Wander the side walks of the community of Celebration. The neighborhood, built by Disney Imagineers, is a mixture of historic-themed residences and modern technology. Admire the old-fashioned establishments and let the children play in the interactive fountains. Go to the farmers market on a Sunday morning, and check out the many free events made available by Reading Trout Books. Tourists may even notice (artificial) snowfall in December.

Downtown Disney/ Disney Springs

You don’t need to spend money on a ticket to experience Disney’s retail stores and entertainment. Wander the streets of Downtown Disney and Disney Springs for a number of boutiques and dining spots. Watch glassblowers at Arribas Brothers and pay a visit to the 4,400-square-foot (409-square-meter) LEGO Imagination Center to experience a “beat-the-clock” building contest, or view a 12-foot (3.6-meter) T. Rex and 30-foot (9-meter) sea serpent, each manufactured from thousands of LEGO bricks. And be sure to check out their Festival of the Masters (November), an arts-and-crafts event where kids can make their own chalk drawings.

The Firework Shows

Simply because you aren’t in the park, it doesn’t mean you can’t watch the Magic Kingdom fireworks. There are a few superb viewing spots by the Magic Kingdom Resort Hotels. A number of my favorites are Bay Lake Tower, The Polynesian Resort beach, along with The Grand Floridian Resort. These places will often play the background music to make sure you get the full experience.

Spook Hill

Every single year, tourists who vacation in Orlando pay a visit to Lake Wales to see if the old Legend of Spook Hill is true. A sign marks the spot where you are able to stop your vehicle, leave it in neutral, and watch as your car rolls up the hill. Many claim to have heard the laughter of Children, but the legends can’t be true, can they?
