As of May 14, 2016, Disney will no longer be selling Disney Dollars at their respective parks and stores. The playful currency, featuring characters such as Mickey Mouse and Goofy, has been accepted as legal tender at Disneyland, Disneyworld, and Disney stores since 1987.
Citing an increase of gift card usage as well as “digital currency”, sales of Disney Dollars have decreased substantially, prompting Disney heads to forgo production of these fun collectors items.
Disney parks and stores will continue accepting Disney Dollars from all visitors, as they do not have an expiration date.
With a now limited supply, many collectors, along with Disney executives, are anticipating a surge of increased interest amongst Disney enthusiasts, and undoubtedly an increase of asking price.
