Everyone knows our family loves Disneyland and Walt Disney World. We are experts in saving money and stretching a budget at Disney. I have a couple great tips on how to enjoy some completely free treats on your next trip to Disneyland. My husband loves that there are now multiple Starbucks locations at the Disneyland Resort. Treats and coffee can really eat into a Disney budget; pun intended. Here’s how to get delicious Starbucks coffee and treats for FREE at Disneyland and Walt Disney World!
You may have heard some outdated information that you can get free coffee refills at Disneyland. This used to be true, and sadly it is no longer. Don’t worry though! There are several free treats available and I am about to share about how you can get FREE Starbucks on your next Disney trip! Yay! Oh, and we have a giveaway at the bottom – don’t forget to enter!
Let’s start with free samples! Did you know that you can get free samples at the Disneyland Resort? You can! Our kids never miss a trip onto the Pacific Wharf at Disney California Adventure Park. There we take a stroll through The Bakery Tour, it is fun to watch the sourdough being made, but they also get a little slice of sourdough bread as you walk in. Just across the way you can visit the Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop where you can enjoy a free piece of delicious chocolate. These are small things, but always worth the stop for our little snack lovers! I would love for Walt Disney World experts to share where there are free snacks available in Florida too!
When Starbucks opened at the Disneyland Resort it was everything! Starbucks is a special treat, not an every day for our family. There is nothing like sipping on a real Starbucks latte (or a hot cocoa for the kids) while walking down Main Street USA. What if I told you that you can get FREE coffee at Starbucks in Disneyland?! Not just free coffee, but literally anything in Starbucks for free. We do this every time we go to Disneyland. Disneyland can be pricey, but little tricks like this keep it in the budget!
You do need to set something up, but then it is literally no work at all! We personally use Swagbucks as our search engine. We use Swagbucks.com instead of Google.com for our internet searches. That’s it. Because Swagbucks is lesser known than Google, they reward their users with points (or “Swagbucks”) and you can turn those points in for all kinds of things, including Starbucks gift cards!
“What do I have to do though?” Literally just sign up and use the search engine. That’s it. Points will add up.
“Is there more I can do to earn them faster?” Absolutely. You can take surveys, play games (what?! my kids love games, they can play them for me!). But you don’t NEED to do anything else, they will accrue even with just using the search engine. Honestly, I rarely do any more than use the search engine. It adds up just fine.
“But I bet that search engine is using my search information for something?” Probably. I know for sure that Google does. If you are worried about someone using your search information for marketing purposes you should probably go back to the library. It’s fine guys, use Swagbucks.
We never go to Disneyland without at least $25 in Starbucks gift cards, and we go several times a year! Remember that Starbucks carries food, drinks, and even souvenirs. And guess what guys? On my last trip to Walt Disney World I bought a little something with my Swagbucks to share with YOU! I brought home this adorable “You Are Here” Collection ornament from the Magic Kingdom. It set me back $12.95 plus tax, except that I used a Starbucks gift card, I also got one for myself, and a coffee, and a giant cookie I am not really proud of eating all by myself. Swagbucks work and I really hope you will try them out.
