    Where at WDW can one purchase Disney Dollars?

    I would like to buy some Disney Dollars for my daughter's surprise trip to WDW and will have the opportunity to be in WDW before our trip. (Read my pre-trip report to learn how!) Where in the World can I buy real Disney Dollars? I so prefer them to a gift card.

    Thanks!

    You used to be able to get them at the Resort desks or Guest Relations at the parks. I'm not sure they still carry them. Seems like a long time since I've seen them advertised.

    Re: Where at WDW can one purchase Disney Dollars?

    I know Disney Stores stopped selling Disney Dollars a couple years ago, and not a clue where you can get them. Maybe resort desks, like NC_WDW_Daddy said? You rarely, I mean RARELY hear of them being used at all. I would imagine that anywhere in WDW would prefer you just to use debit/credit or cash. However, check out this website:

    DisneyDollars.net: Your Disney Dollar Information Resource

    Apparently there was a $1 denomination released in 2011, but only the $1 bills. Looks like, at the least, you can also buy them from this site.

    Re: Where at WDW can one purchase Disney Dollars?

    Disney has for the most part discontinued their use. Here and there they release new ones for collectors. And the ones this year are the Pirates.
    I don't know if they are still available or not since they were brought out in limited edition quantity, but who knows what that means.

    But at WDW this is where they are/were available if you want to call down there.


    Walt Disney World sights are Guest Relations location at the theme parks also the Downtown Disney Area, and concierge and front desks in resorts. Disney Dollars purchased at the Walt Disney World Resort with a credit card are limited to $50 a day.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    I always used to get them from the Disney Store..but someone mentioned above that you can't do that anymore. I know they are very rarely used...I worked at Epcot for six months during my college program and handled money all day long. I would say that I dealt with Disney Dollars only about 3 times during those six months. Gift cards are far more the norm now.
