Even if Disneyland is considered as the "Happiest Place on Earth," it sure isn't cheap because of all the fun that you can get from the place which means that you might be spending about $500 to $1,000 per day. But even if you will spend that much, there are also some things that you can get from Disneyland for free.
1. Get a celebration button. Free buttons can be availed at different locations like that park entrance, information booths and also some food locations like the Tiki Juice Bar. You can even get a personalized button with your name on it if it is your birthday or if it is your first time to visit or you are celebrating something like an anniversary, wedding and others.
2. Find free stickers. You will have to answer some quick questions to get one or you have to be friendly with the street sweepers because they also carry stickers too.
3. Replacement items. Bought a balloon and it popped or it flew away? You can just pick out a new one for free in exchange of it. Just bring with you the remnants of the balloon like the weight or the broken balloon. You can also get a free replacement if you dropped your ice cream or you broke a souvenir, according to Undercover Tourist.
4. Free chocolate and bread samples. You can get a free Ghirardelli chocolate from the Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop in Disney California Adventure. You can also try a free piece of sourdough bread from the Boudin Factory. Said bread is served at the Pacific Wharf Café.
5. Recipe cards. Aside from the buttons, you can also get free recipes from The Tiki Juice Bar, which is famous for its tropical Dole Whips . The free recipes are inspired by the neighboring Enchanted Tiki Room, House Beautiful suggested.
6. Buffet dining for toddlers. Toddlers that are under three-years-old could eat for free at some of the park's buffet restaurant like Goofy's Kitchen. Eat at buffets if you want to avoid paying for your kid's meal at other a la carte restaurants.
7. Jedi Training Academy. Disney Dose wrote that you can get this free training if your kids are chosen. Aside from wearing Jedi robes and fight a Sith Lord, they can also receive a special certificate certifying that they have completed the Jedi Training Academy.
