Three budget-friendly family activities around the Magic Kingdom
Disney Vacation Guide: Cheap family-friendly fun in the Magic Kingdom
There are all kinds of things to do outside of attractions and shows in Disney World’s Magic Kingdom that don’t cost an arm and a leg.
The following are three of the best budget-friendly activities in and around the Magic Kingdom:
Spend some time with your little ones at a fishing hole at the Fort Wilderness Resort & Campgrounds. You’re practically guaranteed to catch something as the fishing areas are stocked with bass, catfish and blue gill. Get a cane pole and some worms for a very nominal cost (roughly $9/day per pole with a special family rate of around $14 for a half hour for up to 6 poles). It is catch and release so don’t plan on catching your dinner!
Also over at Fort Wilderness there’s an evening campfire program open to all Disney World guests. It starts with a sing-a-long and marshmallow roasting. Bring some snacks with you or buy a S’more kit, some pizza or a hotdog. Chip and Dale will make an appearance to sign autographs! Bring a blanket and plan to stay and watch a Disney movie on a big outdoor screen. All of this is totally free for Disney guests!
Watch the Electrical Water Pageant
After the evening fireworks in the Magic Kingdom, the Seven Seas Lagoon comes alive with color. More than 50,000 light bulbs and fourteen lighted, 40-foot long floats presenting an array of designs from leaping dolphins to sparkling flags. Doesn’t cost a thing to watch the show!
