Heyyy :)

Going with some disney newbies so cant wait to see their faces light up through the disney gates!

Hello Zoe-xo and welcome Where are you staying and what plans have you made already and we can go from there. Not quite sure what you mean by "Disney Freebies" but you never know when a Magical Moment may occur. Unless your going to a seminar, a wine tasting event or doing a tour or a holiday party, once your in the parks, you don't have to pay for any of the shows or rides.

welcome I think you're going to like it here. My recommendation for a first drink is the Grey Goose Slushy in France at Epcot!

Hi thanks for the welcome,

We are staying in a villa just near Champions Gate, a first time stay in that area!.
I have made the normal plans of Disney & Universal parks, also having a swim with the Dolphins at Discovery cove which is something I Have always wanted to experience!. I have also booked in for an airboat ride as a bit of an adventure awesome
As we have two bithdays (inc a 21st) when we are over there i was thinking about a special place to have a cocktail!.

Well yes I will always be hoping for that magical major freebie moment!, crossfingers but I remember many years ago (of course things may have changed alot now), i got little freebies around parks like free pin badges or Free Soda's in Epcot just wondering if little things like that still went on. mickey

stars Welcome Zoe!! stars

So nice to have you join us. I suggest a Poolside Plunge for a first drink! It's a standard on all the Pool Bar Menus so you should be able to pick one up at just about and Disney Resort. Where are you staying?

Hi there Zoe. (that's one of my favourite names!). Introducing newbies to the World is so much fun - you will have a great trip.

Yes, you can still get free soda in Epcot - Club Cool is one of our stops every trip. You'll be there for the Flower and Garden festival too, so will get to sample goodies from the booths. awesome



Time marches on. Eventually you realize it's doing it across your face.

Hi Zoe and welcome! I'm 21 as well and my upcoming trip will be my first being able to drink in the parks (though I'm not sure how much I'll actually do, I'm a big lightweight!). Finngirl mentioned the free soda in Club Cool, and you can also get free buttons if you're celebrating a special occasion--there are birthday, first time visitor, newlywed/happily ever after, anniversary, and maybe some other buttons that I'm forgetting you can get for free at the resorts or guest services at the parks Smile
