BREAKING: Disney Dollars to be Discontinued May 14th, 2016

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Disney Dollars, which have been an accepted form of currency at Disney Parks and the Disney Store (as well as a valuable collector’s item) since 1987, are finally being discontinued on May 14th, 2016.

Disney announced today that they will cease all sales of the bills on Saturday. Of course, all existing Disney Dollars will continue to be accepted at Disney locations as they do not expire.

Disney is citing the increasing use of gift cards and “digital currency” for the stop in sales and production of Disney Dollars.

Its just another cost reduction as these Disney Dollars actually cost them quite some money to fabricate, distribute etc. Also gift cards are less probably be hacked/faked.

Makes me sad…these little details they are losing ..make it so generic anymore…these bills worked for a lot of people in different ways, The gift cards are nice but the money had a little different edge to it…more and more cutbacks all to raise raise raise…they are really making some quick decisions these days and don’t realize just what they are doing…very sad

Disney is losing some magic with this decision. I hate to see what happens next. They will guickly become an everyday business if these decisions continue. It’s the little things that make the magic real.

The CEO is taking all the magic away with all the cuts being made and he is doing it in the interests of the shareholders. It is the shareholders we have to blame for all this cost effective bullschitt that is taking away all the little magic things.

The shareholders are to blame? You do realize that there are nearly 1 million individual shareholders of the Walt Disney Company? I do not think that the shareholders are the reason that something like Disney dollars is ending. Bob Iger does have to please the shareholders, but honestly do not think that Disney dollars is something that the majority of the shareholders would care and or even be aware of. While it definitely is unfortunate that the program is ending, almost 1 million shareholders shouldnt be blamed for it – that’s kind of a lazy analysis of the situation.

They haven’t promoted them in a long time. They used to display them at the ticket booths and in the guide maps. I haven’t seen them since they went to the new ticket booths when DCA opened.
