Need ideas for advent calendar at WDW

In December we tuck special activities into the advent calendar for every day leading up to Christmas (ie. visit Santa, bring cookies to neighbors, picnic lunch under the Xmas tree). This year we're heading to WDW Dec 5-15 and I'd like to continue the tradition while we're on vacation, but looking for some fun & preferrably free (or cheap) ideas. I have some easy ideas already with things we have planned to do that day such as visit Santa at EPCOT or have breakfast with Donald Duck (Tusker House). But would love any out of the ordinary ideas you can think of and suggest.

That will be really fun!
Here are some idea from our Holliday trip. Not all are free so pick and choose:

-Go see the Osborn lights
-Go see the Candle light procession
-Resort hop to see all Christmas decoration
-Go to the GF and get a gingerbread man to snack on
-Wear Christmas clothes and take a Christmas card picture
-Choose an ornament for you tree at home
-Take a carriage or sleigh ride at FW
-Go to MVMCP

We do the same thing and will be at DW the 5th-12th! I'm thinking:

Attend MVMCP
Eat a Mickey ice cream bar
Go on a safari
Watch the fireworks
Drink a butter beer (we're going to IoA one day)
Meet a princess
Watch a parade
Swim in the pool
Ride Dumbo
Visit a new country
Take a picture with Mickey
See the castle light up at night
Wear a pair of Mickey ears

I'll let you know if I think of any more!

Thanks for the great ideas! This helps me a ton, and I brainstormed a few more this morning. Here's what I have so far:

1. Go to Disney & see all the Xmas decorations at resorts
2. Attend Jedi Training Academy
3. Buy new mickey ears
4. Pick out a Disney Xmas Ornament
5. Visit Santa
6. Pick out souvenirs for your cousins
7. Have breakfast with Donald Duck
8. See Xmas light show at DHS
9. Have hot cocoa & cookies at the Xmas party
10.Eat a mickey ice cream bar

Awesome! I have to firm ours up, but I probably won't tackle that until after Thanksgiving. Our trip is a surprise so we're actually going to use the advent calendar to tell the kids! I can't wait!
