    I am trying to plan a trip to Disney, and I am trying the best way to save a good amount of money while also staying at one of the resorts. Any tips please?

    Hello Taylor, and welcome to planDisney!  We're so pleased that you've dropped by with such an important question for us to help you with today.

    When all my 4 children were younger, and we vacationed together as a family of 6 Mouseketeers in total, every single penny counted towards our trips to Walt Disney World Resort so that we could make it affordable.  Therefore, with this in mind, I can totally relate to trying to save money wherever possible when staying in a Disney Resorts Collection hotel.

    Taylor, here just for you are some of my top personal tips for budgeting when at Walt Disney World Resort -

     - When planning a vacation to Walt Disney World Resort, keep a keen Ear on the Special Offers, Deals, and Discounts webpage. 

    - Organise a grocery delivery of bottled water, breakfast items, and snacks to your Disney Resorts Collection hotel.  Bell Services at your Resort will gladly receive a delivery, and for a small fee, will even deliver it directly to your room!  Or you can collect items in person - for free!

     - Plan to use refillable water bottles whilst in the Disney Theme Parks.  Water bottles can be refilled at the complimentary water refilling stations that are dotted around the Parks.

     - Guests can request free cups of iced water at almost any Disney Counter or Quick-Service dining location.  Simply ask the nearest Cast Member to assist you.

     - Opt to dine at Counter-Service dining locations instead of the more costly Table-Service restaurants.

     - Make a daily snack and souvenir budget, and stick to it!

     - Aim to share larger-sized snacks such as the Mickey Colossal Cinnamon Roll found at Creature Comforts at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park.

     - If you have little Mouseketeers in your family, plan to pack small inexpensive Disney souvenirs brought from home and leave them in your room each day, with love from Mickey!

    I truly hope that I've been able to provide a few budgeting ideas for you today Taylor.  If you should have any further questions for me regarding planning towards what's sure to be a practically perfect in every way vacation to Walt Disney World Resort.  Then please do pop back to planDisney any time. 

    Have a great Disney day ~ Jane
