How To Have A Scavenger Hunt at Disney World

Sharing is caring!

If you have ever visited the Disney Parks then you are probably already familiar with the rides, attractions, characters, food and more. But do you know how to have a scavenger hunt at Disney World

A vacation scavenger hunt, especially in the most magical place on earth, is a fun plus also free thing to do for all ages.

The best part is you don’t need to download any Disney scavenger hunt app or even need electronics to participate because I have a free scavenger hunt printable for you to easily take on your next (or first) Disney trip.   

I often have Disney on the brain, even more so right now since my daughter just came home from a surprise trip there after visiting Galaxy’s Edge.

Yes, she was in Disney World, that same place that I told you in the past to NEVER EVER visit.

Even though Disney has all of the magic built right in (did you see this ultimate rides checklist?), that doesn’t mean you can’t bring some of your own excitement and surprising activities to the Disney Parks.

How To Have a Scavenger Hunt at Disney World

Have you ever done a scavenger hunt? 

Scavenger hunts are basically fun, creative ways to explore for free.

Wouldn’t it be exciting to walk around the parks while searching for things like a secret doorway, a Walt Disney quote, or a live animal?

I recently shared about strategies to have the best experience when the Disney Parks are crowded, but I forgot to include this unique one.

What I love most, besides this being a free activity (especially since I am always looking for ways to save when traveling), is that no matter how many times you have visited Disney, or even if it’s it your first time, anyone can participate.

This is an something that everyone can do together, including a great bonding activity to do with teens at Disney World
