THE (MOST EXPENSIVE) PLACE ON EARTH?
Many parents dream of taking their kids to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, at least once. But a trip to the happiest place on earth can easily break the bank if you aren’t careful. Luckily, there are several ways to get the most out of your magical vacation without depleting your child’s college fund.
