May 14, 2016 – Disney Dollars Cease Being Sold in Disney Parks
“Disney Dollars may be spent or collected and saved as souvenirs and are redeemable at any time before or after any period of inactivity.”
On May 14, 2016, the use of Disney Dollars ends in all Disney parks. First offered on May 5, 1987, the Disney-based currency were able to be purchased and used at a variety of park locations, including ticketing locations, food stations, and merchandise areas; the use was then expanded to use in Disney Stores. Guests could buy the currency with credit cards and cashier’s checks. The bills were offered in three denominations: $1 (featuring Mickey Mouse), $5 (featuring Goofy), and $10 (featuring Minnie); the Minnie Mouse $10 began to be offered in late 1989, while $1 and $5 were redesigned earlier that year. Although Disney Dollars are no longer being sold, they are still accepted at Walt Disney World, Disneyland, and select Disney Stores.
