Order food to your hotel

One of the things guests spend most of their money on at Disney World is food, but there are ways around that.

Kari revealed that delivery services will actually bring food from supermarkets to the hotels, meaning guests can prepare their own lunches from their rooms.

She explained that "all Disney resort hotels have a small fridge" so guests can get food ordered and not worry about it going off.

Some resorts will charge to bring the food up to your room, but if you go down to collect it yourself, it won't cost any extra.

Buy discounted gift cards

Discounted gift cards exist and can be used to pay for almost everything inside the park.

Kari said: "You can purchase discounted Disney gift cards in bulk at stores such as Target, Sam's Club, and BJ's.

"On our last trip, we saved over $300 (£266) just by buying discounted Disney gift cards."

Split meals/order from the kids menu

Another food-related way to save money is to split a main course, or order from the children's menu.

Kari explains that the meals are often big enough for two, while the children's portions can also sustain most people.
