May 5, 1987 – Disney Dollars are Offered in Disney Parks
“Disney Dollars are the official currency of the Walt Disney World Resort, the Disneyland Resort, and Disney Store locations in the United States – including Puerto Rico.”
On May 5, 1987, a park-exclusive form of currency known as Disney Dollars was made available in American Disney parks, and has been expanded to use in Disney Stores. The value of the currency is equivalent to U.S. currency, with guests being able to purchase Disney Dollars either through credit cards or cashier’s checks. They come in three denominations: $1 (featuring Mickey Mouse), $5 (featuring Goofy), and $10 (featuring Minnie). A limited edition $50 bill featuring Mickey was available for the 50th anniversary of Disneyland. Within the parks, the currency can be used to buy tickets, merchandise, and at guest relations.
