Free Areas to Play Pokémon Go in Orlando
The following locations are Pokémon hotspots in Orlando, and they won’t cost you a penny to visit.
There are more than 30 PokéStops inside Walt Disney World® Resort’s walkable entertainment district, in addition to delicious restaurants, upscale shopping and vibrant entertainment.
Keep your app open as soon as you arrive at Universal Orlando Resort dining, entertainment and shopping hub, as a few PokéStops will be waiting as soon as you walk out of the parking garage.
