10+ Free Disney World Souvenirs That Take Zero Luggage Space
Free and Walt Disney World can rarely be used in the same sentence. But rest assured, it is possible to bring home some fun free Disney World souvenirs from your WDW Vacation.
Below is a list of some of the free Disney souvenirs you can score around the parks.
Disney World cast members hand stickers out like candy.
Ask any cast member and odds are they will have a sticker (or ten) on hand.
Stop by Guest Services or your resort desk when you arrive and ask for a button. Disney World has free pins for any possible special event — birthdays, anniversaries, first visit to Walt Disney World and more. There is even a generic ‘I’m Celebrating’ button if you just like living life!
Chances are you are going to pick up a map as soon as visit a Disney park. They are informative and a helpful guide to navigating all of the attractions. Disney World park maps are also free and colorful, which gives you plenty of options to re-purpose them into a keepsake for next to nothing.

It seems that Epcot has a festival year-round. Regardless of when you visit, you may find yourself at the Epcot Festival of the Arts, The Flower and Garden Show, The Food and Wine Festival or Epcot Holidays Around The World.
And they all have passports!
Though it would cost you an arm and a leg to actually visit every booth listed, the passports are free and make for a great keepsake. Kids will love the stickers inside and trying to match them to the correct country or booth. ( Hint: Maybe grab some extra for the drive or flight back home.)
Did you know that Walt Disney World cast members who play characters are all trained and taught the autograph so that it is consistent? #funfact.
Collecting autographs is a fun way to interact with the characters and provide memorable keepsakes for home.
You can purchase an autograph book at the park or in advance ( this is my favorite autograph book idea), or have them sign your park maps or buttons for free!

A little-hidden gem of Disney World is the Sorcerer’s Of The Magic Kingdom game.
The game puts you on a quest to defeat villains around the Magic Kingdom, using magical portals and special trading cards.
You can pick one pack of cards per person per day at the Fire Station in Town Square.
And the best part…you guessed it. Completely free.
Even if you don’t make it through the game, the cards make for a fun souvenir that the kids will love!
Pirate’s Adventure Maps
Similar to Sorcerer’s Of The Magic Kingdom, the Pirate’s Adventure: Treasures of the Seven Seas game is a FREE scavenger hunt experience through Adventureland.
The maps are actually pretty cool.
I could imagine doing some unique art and craft projects with them. But, if not, the kids will love playing pretend pirates with the maps after they get home from vacation!
To play, head to the Pirate’s Adventure League post. If you are in Adventureland, you have to walk past Pirate’s of The Caribbean ride and around the corner to the right.
From Frontierland, walk away from Splash Mountain, past Peco’s Bill’s Tall Tale Tavern towards Adventureland. The Pirate’s League will be to your right.
KidCot Cards, Bears, Stamps, etc
A lot of parents question if Epcot will be a good Disney Park for their kiddos. For both of my children, it’s actually a favorite.
They love checking out all of the KidCot stations around World Showcase, which is also a great way to pick them up some free Disney souvenirs.
KidCot used to have Duffy the Bears that kids could color and get stamped at every country. Now, kids can get a fun bag sponsored by Ziploc that each country fills with a postcard featuring fun facts and a unique stamp representing the country.
Wilderness Explorer’s Guides
At the Animal Kingdom, Kids will enjoy the Wilderness Explorer’s club. ( It’s actually one of my top suggestions for the kids at the Animal Kingdom.)
After you enter the park and are able to see the Tree of Life, look to your right and you will find the Wilderness Explorer’s starting point. Pick up a free activity guide and watch your kiddos have a blast collecting badges and interacting with the exhibits throughout the day.
Though not exactly free ( sorry to be a liar, since this post is for free souvenirs), pressed pennies are a cheap Disney World souvenir.
$0.51cents in Walt Disney World lingo might as well be free.
Kids will enjoy using the pressed penny machine which can be found all over the parks, resorts and Disney Springs.
Plus, they are nice little collectible keepsakes that take practically zero room in your luggage.
Resort Soap and Shampoo
Raise your hand if you are a hotel hygiene item pilferer!!!
C’mon! Ya know you want to admit it!
For real, though, if you are staying on Disney property, don’t be afraid to bring home your unopened or unused shampoo, conditioner, and soap from your Disney World resort.
In fact, ask the front desk for some extra and I can guarantee they will give you some.
I like to keep mine in my guest bathroom at home just to bring some extra happiness to my visitors.
Transportation cards are a bit more obscure, so you can look like a Disney World rock star when you ask for them!
Ask any monorail attendant or ferry operator if they happen to have a transportation card.
It’s possible that they will not have any available. But, you never know unless you ask.
The cards make nice keepsakes for your Disney scrapbook. Try to collect every one!
Email postcards and Certificates
Though not a tangible souvenir that you can feel and touch, several attractions have the opportunity to send a keepsake by email.
At the Tomorrowland Speedway, you can email a driver’s license ( You can also purchase a plastic one for $5.00).
After getting off of Spaceship Earth, you can email yourself a copy of your ‘World of Tomorrow’ video.
And in The Seas at Epcot, you can take Mr. Ray’s pop quiz and email a certificate. This is located in the Turtle Talk with Crush waiting area.
