    can you spend the Disney Dollars, or the Disney Gift/Credit card thing, in the on-property restaurants??? I know some of the restaurants aren't operated by Disney. if you can, I may put all of our spending money into Disney Dollars (or the card thing) to deter us from spending it on something else, or thievery.

    If we can dream it, we can do it

    you can use the disney giftcard in all on-property restaurants. They do recommend giving a giftcard to kids for their spending limit. So yes, you could put all your money on it, but the problem is IF someone steals it, you lose it. You can't get it back, etc.

    getting it stolen, or lost, would be a problem. however, I feel like you would have these same problems with a wad of cash. as far as getting it stolen, I think a person is less likely to steal a Disney Giftcard, knowing it can only be used in the parks, or Disney store, for Disney merchandise, which isn't something crooks are known to be into. it also would deter us, my wife and I, from using our money on burritos or something else at home before we got down there.

    what about the Disney Dollars? can they be used in the restaurants and/or bars?

    Thanks for the info!

    we gave our girls Disney dollars for Christmas in a wallet as a way to tell them we were going to Disney in the summer. We made up care packages with everything Disney and made them guess what it all meant. The Disney dollars are what finally made everything click in their heads that we were really going.

    I thought that I read somewhere that they may be doing away with the Disney Dollars soon. If that happens, you could just give out credits to the children and just before leaving, have them hand in there credits earned and get the Gift cards from the Disney Stores and have the youngins use them at the parks.

    When Hubby and I went to disney in Oct '05, we were told by a CM in the store that they were phasing out the paper Disney Dollars, and replacing them with the plastic gift card type only, but I haven't seen that yet. Does anyone know if this is true??
