If you're lucky, you'll be connected to score the free ice cream delivery.

Free Magnum ice cream and Uber rides

You can get your free Magnum ice cream bars with no strings attached, but Uber is offering a special deal to first time users tied into this special Florida summer promotion.

Those who are new to the service can enter the promo code FLICECREAM to get their first ride free, up to a total of $15.

Uber is a popular means of transportation in Florida, where tourists often use it to move around Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando Resort, and the other attractions. It's a particular favorite of families who head to Walt Disney World using the free Magical Express shuttle service from Orlando International Airport and those who use a shuttle to get from the airport to other area hotels. Once they're at their resort, they order up an Uber ride if they need to get somewhere not serviced by their hotel's shuttles. Locals use it as a way to get around town when they head out for a night of partying at Disney Springs, CityWalk, or out on International Drive.

You don't have to be an Orlando local to get your free Uber ice cream on July 15, If you're visiting in town, you can still use the Uber app to try your luck at scoring the Magnum ice cream bars. Just order them up to wherever you're staying during your trip.
