Walt Disney World to Test Cash-less Resort Concept at Animal Kingdom Lodge in February

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

Walt Disney World will be testing a cash-less environment at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge during a limited pilot program beginning February 12th, 2018.

Jambo House at the Resort will be the first location to accept electronic payment only for all purchases and services. Guests with resort or dining reservations during the pilot program are being advised of the change.

Valid forms of payments that will be accepted include MagicBands, credit cards, debit cards, Disney Gift Cards, Disney Rewards Redemption Cards and electronic payments methods such as Apple Pay, Samsung Pay or Google Pay.

Although the resort will be cash-less during the pilot period, they will continue to accept cash for tips and guests staying at the resort can use cash to add to their room charge capabilities.
