Five Ways to Get Free Disney Stuff

This post contains affiliate links….

I went to Disney World for the first time when I was a freshman in high school. I played the flute in the marching band, and every 3 years they went on a major trip. I lucked out that my first year in high school they had one, and I was able to march in the daily parade at Disney World, and play in a concert at Epcot Center. I’d never been on an airplane or even stayed at a hotel before that! Crazy, right? Then a few months ago, we were blessed to be invited to visit Disneyland as part of the Disney Social Media Moms event. It was my family’s first time there – and we only got the invite a few weeks before the event! We had little time to prepare for it – but it really didn’t matter, since everything they put together for us was SO over-the-top amazing. {If you follow me on Instagram, I’m sure you saw the BOATLOAD of amazing photos I shared while we were there!} It was seriously the most incredible experience I’ve ever had, and I cried seeing how happy Abby was being a part of it all <3 {Because I’m a sap. And I cry a lot. Have you seen me watch the movie Armageddon? Oh my….. }

How to get a customized Disney World Map

Well, after attending Disney Social Media Moms, and learning even more about Disney, the parks, and the people behind it all, we’ve been planning more trips! We’re dying to do a Disney Cruise, and totally hope to go to Disney World within the next year. {We’re up here in Washington State, so that’s a bit of travel. But ohsoworthit.} As I started planning, I came across an AWESOME tool that everyone should check out. Seriously. It’s a free site where you can create your own personalized Disney parks map!

  • You go to their site and request your free map. You add your family name – and as you can see in the pic of mine above, your map comes personalized just for you.
  • You can get maps for all 4 parks.
  • Each map has a list on the side, featuring all of the different attractions available in the park. It also comes with a set of stickers, so you can add a little sticker marking the rides that you most want to visit.
  • You can visit YouTube and look up each ride too – to get an idea of what each one is like. Then you can create your own map ahead of time, with all of the things you want to see the most!

Cool, right? And they’re printed on thick, sturdy paper, with a really cool “old world map” style finish. Honestly, even if you WEREN’T planning a trip, these are a fun freebie. I got a set for my nephew, and he uses them as treasure maps when he pretends to be a pirate :)

And each map comes with a ton of awesome tips to help you out on your trip too. They mention things like using the FastPass {which I can’t recommend enough!}, dining options, and more. Here are a couple of examples:

  • Call 407-WDW-DINE before traveling, to reserve a Character Meal dining experience before leaving home.
  • There are Disney photographers all around the park. Learn about how to purchase a Disney PhotoPass to get access to all of those cool photos that get taken of your family when you run into them.

So much more helpful info too. And, if you’re a Disney lover too {which I assume you are, if you’re reading this} – here are a few other Disney freebies you might like too!

This is my new favorite thing – The Disney Movie Club! We joined about a month or so ago, and it’s so cool. When first joining, you get 4 free movies, just pay shipping. Then I decided to add on more, since there was a HUGE discount on them. I paid $29 bucks for SEVEN Disney movies. That includes the shipping fees! And we got a free Disney tote bag. If I’d bought them all on Amazon, it’d be SO much more:

That’s a total for all 7 movies, of almost $100 if I bought them from Amazon. So I saved about $70 dollars – crazy, right? And every month you get new offers of things like, “buy one movie, get 40% off the rest.” Totally worth it. And, here’s a bonus tip: Join Inbox Dollars first. It’s a site that pays you free cash for things like doing surveys, reading emails, and printing coupons. If you go there first, then join the Disney Movie Club, they’ll pay you $10 bucks into your account, which you can cash out into PayPal, or request a check. Making it even CHEAPER. Awesomesauce. :) I’ve used it for years – it’s totally legit, and I totally love it. {It’s in my 10 Ways to Make Money from Home post, which has been pinned over 273,000 times.}

Remember that I mentioned we were planning a Disney Cruise in the future too? Well this gives you the option to request a super cool planning DVD, to help you plan your trip. And, it gets the kids {and the grown ups!} more excited about the cruise, as you get to see some of the things that are available for ya.

Free Disney Stuff: Disney Movie Rewards

Another way to get free Disney Stuff is the Disney Movie Rewards club. If you buy Disney movies, you’ve seen these little inserts inside the case of each movie, right? Well – if you ignore them or throw them away, you’re seriously just throwing away free stuff! Every time you enter a code, you get points, that are able to be redeemed for really cool Disney themed stuff. {Don’t try using my codes here, I’ve already used them, lol. But – you can always do a Google search of “Disney Movie Reward Point Codes” and you’ll sometimes come across bonus ones!} But not only do the points get you cool free stuff, they also can help you replace your movies if they get damaged. Every code you enter registers your movies. So if one gets scratched, you can request a new one. They’ll mail you a new disc, and you send your damaged one back. VERY cool perk. We’ve used our codes to get free Disney lunchboxes, movies, posters, and toys.

Similar to the Disney Movie Club – but with super cool kid’s Disney books. Definitely worth checking out too! It’s another awesome way to stock up on cool Disney products at a discounted price, while getting lots of freebies, discounts, and perks. Also works great going into the holidays, as a way to stock up on gifts.
