Disney Dollars (1968-Now)

Figuring Out How the Disney Dollars (1968-Now) Work

When taking a Disney vacation, you may want to have funds set aside to spend in the Disney theme parks and resorts. Disney Dollars are one such way to do this, and you can find a great variety of Disney Dollars from 1968 to now on eBay.

Are Disney Dollars collectible?

Disney Dollars are highly collectible. As Disney stopped printing the money, the dollars have now become very valuable. Certain prints and series are worth more, based on rarity. The Disney $5 Mickey Mouse bill from the 1980s is a rare item, for instance, and will sell for far more than $5.

In addition, every year since their inception, the money has featured different characters, and they are signed by treasurer Scrooge McDuck. Some of the most popular bills include some of the first ones that were printed in the 1980s.

The initial run featured characters like Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, and Goofy. There are also special-edition bills from Disneylands 50th anniversary printed in 2005. You can sometimes find an uncut sheet of bills, and those are also a very rare collectors item. To own one of each printed, you would need a total of 172 Disney bills.

Additionally, each year the Disney Dollars were printed, the bills featured unique themes and designs. As a result, these bucks are considered collectors items. Some people do not buy Disney Dollars to spend at the park; instead, they keep them as part of their Disney memorabilia collections. On eBay, you can shop for Disney Dollars by character, story, or theme.

Where can you use Disney Dollars?

Although they are no longer printed, the dollars do not expire, and you can use them at different Walt Disney World and Disneyland locations just like gift cards. When you buy preowned Disney Dollars on eBay, you can purchase different amounts for however much you need. You can them use them at:

  • Ticketing locations
  • Food and beverage vendors
  • Merchandise locations
  • Recreation areas
  • Disney hotel front desks
  • Disney hotel concierges
  • Guest relations at Disney theme parks and water parks
What is a Disney Dollar?

Disney Dollars are currency printed at Walt Disney World and Disneyland. They can be used in the theme parks and resorts just like regular money. Disney Dollars can be a great way to budget for a vacation because you can buy the amount you want to spend on food and souvenirs and only use your Disney Dollars in the park. This practice can help you avoid overspending. These funds are similar to purchasing a gift card but can be a fun option for children who may enjoy the illustrations on the bills, like Mickey Mouse. Although the printing of Disney Dollars was discontinued in 2016, the money is still used as currency in the parks.
