Walt Disney World is unlike any other theme park event you will ever embark on. Some people may think that Disney World Resort is just a place for families with children to visit Mickey and Minnie and for adventurous theme park goers, but it is much more than that.

Inside Disney World’s four theme parks, Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, EPCOT, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom, are some amazing dining and shopping experiences. Many times, Disney will create new merchandise and apparel that you can only find inside a Disney theme park but what if you don’t have the funds to purchase a ticket just to snag an exclusive Disney item?

Well, we have good news for frequent Walt Disney World fans! Did you know that you can receive a Shoppers Pass and enter the park for free? Here we share how one Disney Guest recently received a Shoppers Pass for EPCOT to buy some very popular Orange Bird merch!

After watching this video on Tiktok, and reaching out to Disney, I felt the need to share this wonderful tip especially for all the local Florida residents and Disney World fans who visit often!

A Shoppers Pass is a one-day pass that you can use to walk into a Disney World theme park for free, but there are limitations.

To receive this special ticket, Guests can visit Guests Relations where they “purchase” a theme park ticket on their debit/visa card. This free pass has a time limit of an hour, where Guests can quickly head to their favorite store, shop till they drop, then head back to Guests Relations to present the pass and receive a full refund. Essentially this is a hold on your credit card.

Keep in mind, After the hour has passed, Guests will be charged the full price of the 1-day theme park pass if they decide to stay in the park. This will be great when Mouse Gear’s permanent replacement is open at EPCOT.

Check out this experience happen for @disneyparksdiy on TikTok as he rushes to find Orange Bird merch in Walt Disney World’s EPCOT. Although we all appreciate him sharing this tip, I would have loved to see what he purchased, but it didn’t go as well as he planned as Theme Park Factory states,
