Are you visiting Walt Disney World this year and looking for some unique things to do in the Parks? We’ve got Free Disney Games at Walt Disney World if you need to kill the time in between rides and food and parades. Since these fun free Disney games sometimes come with a free souvenir, you can play without your budget falling through the floor.
Fun and Free Disney Games at Disney Parks
Walt Disney World has some pretty cool FREE games that you can play within the parks. Especially, if you’re in search of some downtime. Or if you just need a break from the lines or crowds or both. We play these games often as they’re perfect for kids, adults, and the whole family. We also love that sometimes you can also snag Free Disney Souvenirs just for playing.
A Pirate’s Adventure Treasure of the Seven Seas at Magic Kingdom
You can find this Pirates of the Caribbean treasure hunt in the Magic Kingdom. Get started by visiting the tiny orange building right between Adventureland and Frontierland. This is a short walk from the Pirates of the Caribbean ride towards Splash Mountain. Once you enter the hut, you will be given the choice of which map you’d like to start. Your MagicBand activates the game, so it will keep track of which maps you’ve already completed. For the game, you will be given a landmark, somewhere throughout Adventureland and will be given instructions to unlock treasures that have been hidden there. And in the true fashion of a treasure map, you will then be directed to another landmark until you have finally found the treasure.
We love this game; not only does it take you to some more hidden areas of the Kingdom you may not have noticed, but you can also make some pretty awesome stuff happen. Hello, firing a canon? Seriously awesome. Each map takes about 15-20 minutes to complete, depending on the crowds and how easily you are able to find your landmarks. At the end of each map, you return to the hut and will collect a card for finding your treasure. You can then choose to do another or abandon ship. The Free Souvenirs you get here are the card and the map! Collect them all.
Hidden Pascals at Magic Kingdom
This Hidden Pascal game is relatively new and super easy. Basically, Pascal (you know that sneaky little chameleon friend of Rapunzel’s) is hidden in 10 different places near the Tangled restrooms in Fantasyland. The goal is to find all 10. Keep in mind, he is a chameleon, which means he generally blends in with his environment. This game is actually a lot harder than it sounds! We actually were playing the game with a cast member at one point and he said he has yet to find all 10 and there may be more. This is a great game to play with the kids during a recharge your phone break at the recharging stations right across from the restrooms. Check out our post on Hidden Pascals to get more hints! Good luck and Happy Hunting!
Ducktales World Showcase Adventure at Epcot
Agent P’s World Showcase Adventure is getting re-branded, Ducktales style. Either way, we’re sure it’s going to be amazing. We love this game and have been playing it ever since we started visiting Walt Disney World. The game is fully accessible from your phone, so just type in the website and you’re off. This Adventure game is a little like a spy mission. In its current form, you’re given a mission and alongside Perry the Platypus, from Phineas and Ferb, so you can save the world from the diabolical Dr. Doofenshmirtz. This game can be started by visiting this site. http://www.agentpwsa.com/. Not all countries can be saved as they do not all have missions. But the ones that do offer neat little glimpses of magic you wouldn’t see if you weren’t playing the game. This game is similar to the previously mentioned Pirates game in that you can make pretty cool stuff happen, like make steins sing in Germany, or a chase in the clock tower or trigger Agent P’s boat to cross the moat in Japan. We are sure the Ducktales world showcase adventure will be just as cool!
Wilderness Explorers at Animal Kingdom
The Wilderness must be explored! Remember Russell from Up? Well your kids, or just you, can join in on Russell’s wilderness enthusiasm by signing up in Animal Kingdom to be a Wilderness Explorer. While this game requires a little more effort, it’s actually completely fascinating. To earn “badges.” Mind you badges are really just stickers for your Wilderness Explorer book. To earn them you have to visit the Wilderness Explorer stations to learn about the animals featured at each station. There are also other activities throughout the book that will require some interaction with cast members, like in Maharajah Jungle Trek, in order to complete them. This is a great activity for kids who love animals and makes another great, free, souvenir!
The Mirror de los Muertos in Epcot Mexico
With the Mexico Pavilion at Epcot World Showcase in Walt Disney World slowly becoming overtaken by all things Coco, it’s no surprise that the newest addition is an interactive digital game featuring characters from Coco. The game, Mirror de Los Muertos can be found on the wall in the pavilion right before you enter the open-air market. It is perfect for one or several players. In the game, you’re given the opportunity to dress up a digital skeleton and make him dance. Towards the end of the game, your skeleton will ask you to dance. As you dance together, the mirror captures the image, and at the end, you have a digital picture of yourself and the skeleton projected on the screen. Very cool. While there is no takeaway or free souvenir from this game, it’s a super cute game you can play in the air-conditioned Mexico pavilion. Always a treat in Florida.
Kidcot FunStops in Epcot
While not necessarily a “game”, this Passport Sticker and postcard collecting extravaganza comes complete with a little ziplock bag suitcase. Collect the cards, color them, grab a sticker and learn how to say hello in a foreign language! A perfect Free Disney Souvenir, this game helps you make sure you don’t miss a single country while at Epcot and fuels a little bit of that “collector” in all of us.
Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge Interactive Game in Hollywood Studios
