Is Disney getting Rid of Disney Dollars?


You’ve probably seen it or heard it by now: that Disney Dollars are being discontinued this Saturday, May 14, 2016. Disney Dollars you currently have in your possession will continue to be honored, but they will not be sold anymore past May 14th.

While it seems that the Disney fans of the internet are in outrage over this, it appears you may not need to get worked up just quite yet. Many of these articles announcing the demise of Disney Dollars claim that Disney themselves announced it today, yet we can’t seem to find any further proof of this. We also found many other false references online about Disney Dollars being retired, dating all the way back to 2008, so we were really starting to question this big Disney news. So we called the number on the Disney Dollars FAQ page on Disney’s website and spoke to a Cast Member about the issue.

I explained I had heard that Disney Dollars were being discontinued and wondered what that meant to those of us with Disney Dollars still in our wallets to spend. He sounded confused at first, then asked where I had heard this information about the Disney Dollars being discontinued. I informed him it was not an official Disney site of course, and while he sent in a request to the powers that be to look this information up for him, he also spent some time browsing his own information database and couldn’t find anything on the subject. He then heard back from his other source he asked for help, and they too, confirmed this was not true and there was nothing in Disney’s Disney Dollar system that indicated the program was being discontinued. As we ended our call, he suggested I not believe my source, and question the information that I had been provided with.


So there you have it. Are Disney Dollars being retired? It’s always possible it’s true and the information got leaked before Disney could officially announce it, but after our morning of investigative work, we seem to think you don’t need to worry about it just yet. Happy Spending!!

  1. A Disney spokeswoman, Melissa Britt told NBC4 in Southern California on 5/12 that this was confirmed. Google it.

  2. I called a Disney Store yesterday to see if I could buy Disney Dollars and the cast member said they have not sold them in store since 2008. She said she was informed Disney is going to faze them out soon!
