Free Art Class
The Art of Animation Resort features a short art class for free at 11 am, 2 pm, and 5 pm.
This is for any guest not just a birthday guest. But how fun to try to learn how-to draw Disney characters! At the end of the class, you can keep your drawing as a souvenir or not!
Free Sweets from Goofy’s Candy Company
Most of the sweet shops in Disney World offer free samples to their customers. Many of them also give out additional treats to celebrate a birthday.
The Ghirardelli Chocolate shop, for example, doles out a free chocolate during your visit. Goofy’s Candy Company and the Ganachery also offers free sweets to birthday boys and girls.
Visit Club Cool – this “exhibit” is situated near Innoventions West, and offers free samples of soft drinks from around the world, as well as Coca-Cola merchandise. All guests enjoy free soda samples. If you visit the counter, all birthday visitors receive a free ICEE – flavor of your choice.

Many Disney World restaurants are happy to gift you with a free birthday dessert after your meal. This is by far the most popular birthday freebie, as the type of dessert served is often a complete surprise.
Some of the staff may even amaze you with a little impromptu song and dance, if you’re lucky! Just make sure to wear your birthday button during your meal. This way, your server will see it’s your special day and alert the staff.
