Walk Around Disney Springs


Want some Disney magic without having to pay for a theme park ticket? Spend some time walking around Disney Springs, the newly reimagined entertainment district with remarkable architecture, natural beauty and free family fun that includes live performances and other entertaining interludes. Window shop at some amazing stores, enjoy cutting-edge entertainment and dine at unique restaurants while still feeling the Disney magic. For instance, kids can build as many LEGO figures as they want at The LEGO Store, and the whole gang can hop on the free ferries that travel to Magic Kingdom Park, EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios — even if you don’t have passes to those theme parks! Parking is free, and there’s certainly no shortage of fun to be had!


Disney's BoardWalk


Located within walking distance of EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and featuring free admission, Disney’s BoardWalk will transport you to charming, turn-of-the-20th-century Atlantic City. As you stroll along a Coney Island-style boardwalk, take in free evening entertainment that includes jugglers, comedians and even fire-eaters. Like Disney Springs, it’s connected to Disney’s complimentary ferry system.


Spend a Day at Celebration


Visit the Disney-made town of Celebration! Stroll around the gorgeous natural Florida walking trails, marvel at the beautiful homes and experience the magic of Disney living. Depending on what time of year you visit, you can see a one-of-a-kind light display on Jeater Bend or snow fall on the streets! Spending a day exploring Celebration is one of the best free and cheap things to do in Orlando!


Take a Trip to the Beach


Orlando’s central location is great for venturing to either coast for the beaches! Cocoa beach is a great option for families with tons of parking, picnic tables and miles of beautiful beach to enjoy. Drive to the Gulf-side beaches to experience the gorgeous Clearwater beach and spend a fun day in a beach town.


Hang out at ICON Park


Visit International Drive for an endless amount of attractions, entertainment and fun! The brand new entertainment complex called ICON Park is home to the iconic 400-foot Orlando Eye observation wheel, Madame Tussaud’s wax museum, Sealife Aquarium and more. While you do have to pay for entry to the attractions, parking and the complex is free to enter.


Universal CityWalk


CityWalk, located at Universal Studios Orlando, is a fun entertainment district. Parking is free after 6 pm, and there is no shortage of fun to be had at CityWalk! Sing your heart out at Rising Star Karaoke or enjoy a delicious Margarita straight from Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville. See a movie or play a round of mini-golf! Free activities include dance parties set to live DJ sets, cooling splash areas for kids, and water taxis that travel between Universal CityWalk and Universal Orlando’s theme parks, including Universal Studios Florida, Universal’s Islands of Adventure and Universal’s Volcano Bay.


United States Tennis Association (USTA) National Campus


The USTA National Campus in Lake Nona, about 20 minutes from Orlando International Airport, offers an exciting way to enjoy tennis with top-notch facilities, a wide range of events that are free to attend, and 100 fully lit tennis courts. What’s more, the 60- and 30-foot courts at the Nemours Family Zone are free for all ages to play, but pre-registration is required.


West Orange Trail


This 20.8-mile paved trail runs from Winter Garden near Walt Disney World to Apopka, to the west of Orlando’s main tourism districts. Hiking and biking is free, and the trail also features playground equipment and other amenities. If you didn’t bring bicycles with you, you can rent them from West Orange Trail Bikes & Blades Co., which offers delivery to area hotels.


Lake Eola Park


This popular local attraction is actually an 80-foot sink hole-turned-lake. Located in downtown Orlando, it’s the perfect thing to do for an active traveler. Run, jog, or bike along the path that circles the lake. Feed the iconic swans and other birds that populate the park, enjoy the views of the charming flowers, or pack a picnic. It’s a refreshing respite from urban Orlando with over 40 acres to explore


Kelly Park, Rock Springs


While admission to this gorgeous, 248-acre park comes with a small fee, it’s totally worth the meager price of admission to explore the bounty of flora and fauna that populate the park. There are plenty of opportunities for camping, hiking, observing wildlife, swimming in natural springs, and participating in plenty of fun recreational activities like volleyball, Frisbee, and more. Be sure to pop in the famous Rock Springs to cool off!
