These are the places you can get free food and free drinks. They might just be small samples. Or they can be full size food products or drinks.

This is a fun activity to do on your last vacation day at Disney World. Go on a scavenger hunt at Disney Springs for all of the free food before you leave.

To save even more money on food at Disney, you can bring outside food into Disney World. Here are the 67 best snacks to bring to Disney.

Pin this list to save for later!

Ice Cream Samples

I had the best time tasting amazing flavors of freshly made ice cream at Ample Hills on the Boardwalk at Walt Disney World Resort.

Candy Stores

When the candy stores at Walt Disney World give out free samples, it’s definitely a fun free food find!

The places where you will come across this most often are in Disney Springs and Magic Kingdom.

The Main Street Confectionary is the most reliable source for a free candy sample and it is really fun to watch the candy be made.

You can also get free candy samples in Frontierland at the Magic Kingdom.

If you love chocolate, go to the Marketplace at Disney Springs where the Ghirardelli Soda Fountain is. Ghirardelli offers chocolate squares as samples, which is technically not a sample size at all! (Although this perk seems to come and go. Many times, the samples aren’t offered anymore. It depends on what they’re doing that day.)

One of my favorite places in Epcot to get a free sample is at Caramel Kuche in the Germany Pavilion. They offer samples of their freshly made caramel corn. Again, this sampling seems to be dependent on a cast member’s mood. I once asked about samples and got a not-so-pleasant response, so you’ll have to time it right.

Sweet Spells in Disney’s Hollywood Studios is also part of the free food at Disney World.

Taste of Africa at Animal Kingdom Lodge

This is the place if you are serious about free food at Walt Disney World!!

One of the many tours the Animal Kingdom Lodge offers at the resort is a restaurant tour called a Taste of Africa.

The tour takes you through the inner workings of Sanaa and at the end you get to try the food. Boma and Jiko have had culinary tours, too.

This tour is completely free to participate in.

Check with registration for a schedule of all available tours and events at the hotel, because they are really neat and unlike anything else in Disney World.

Free Cupcake

Free Honey Samples

Free Replacements for Dropped Food

Dropped your ice cream bar as soon as you bought it? Did you child throw their Mickey pretzel to the ground? If you go back to the food stand with the damaged food (you’ve got to bring most of it back), they’ll give you a replacement one for free.

We found this out when the Mickey pretzel below was thrown to the ground after only one bite. Carrie threw it in the trash can and then went to order another. If Carrie had brought the pretzel back with the receipt, she could have easily gotten a free one in exchange.

While the cast member most certainly could have known we couldn’t have eaten the entire pretzel in just two minutes as some sort of scam, she did insist that the damaged food had to be returned in order to get a free replacement.

So don’t waste money on replacing snacks and drinks if you have an accident.

Free Birthday Desserts And Free Anniversary Desserts

If you wear your Disney Birthday Button or tell servers it’s your birthday, chances are you’ll get a little sweet surprise at the end of your meal. Even if you didn’t order it! (Check out Carrie’s tips for celebrating your 40th Birthday at Disney World!)
