IT'S famously known as the "happiest place on earth".
But considering how much it can cost to visit DisneyWorld, it's somewhere most of us will visit once or twice at a push.
As someone who has visited the park a whopping FORTY times, travel planner and Disney superfan Kari Becker knows exactly when and where you can save your money on a typical visit.
And we're kicking ourselves that we never thought of some of these before.
Writing for Insider, Kari – who works for Marvelous Mouse Travels – explained how you can save money on food during your stay by ordering groceries to the resort.
She explained: "Since all Disney resort hotels have a small fridge, an easy trick is to stock it with your own groceries. We typically have milk, yogurt, water bottles, cheese sticks, and soda.

"There are delivery services that bring groceries right to the bell-hop stand at the resort."
When the food shop is delivered, Kari says there's a small charge to have it taken up to your room – but you can pick it up from the lobby for free.
This covers Kari and her family for breakfast and also means they can take a small cool box full of lunch bits into the park with them.
Although it seems pricey at the time, Kari recommends buying a $19.99 [£15] refillable mug and $10 [£7] popcorn bucket when you first get there.

She explained: "Beverages at the resorts go for about $4 each, so if you have more than five drinks, you've made your money back.
"Once purchased, [popcorn] refills only cost $2 instead of $5. "
As sit-down meals in the park's restaurants can be on the pricier side too, Kari and her family go big at the cafes – which she says fills them up anyway.
And when they do go the restaurant, Kari and her partner will order a kids' meal too – as she claims they're almost the same size and come with snacks they can give to their children later in the trip.

And as kids tend to go wild in the souvenir shops, Kari will give them a clear budget before they even arrive so they think more carefully about any toys they want.
"I usually make it easy by purchasing Disney gift cards for everyone before we leave," she said. "Once the gift card is depleted, there are no more souvenirs."
