    Can you still use cash at Walt Disney parks

    Hi Mary Ann! Welcome to planDisney!

    It looks like your trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth is almost here! What an exciting time! The dedicated panelists here at planDisney are happy to help answer any and all questions you have leading up to your stay! Our goal is to help you prepare for your trip and have a smooth, magical, memorable time at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Mary Ann, cash is still accepted at locations throughout the parks that have in-person payment options. Luckily for you, this includes mostly all dining and merchandise locations, so you should not have any issue if cash is your preferred payment method.

    If you'd like to utilize Mobile Food and Beverage Ordering while visiting the parks, or even mobile checkout at merchandise locations, that is done entirely through the My Disney Experience Mobile App and would not be available to a Guest paying with cash. However, you could simply visit one of the standard lines and a friendly Cast Member can check you out using cash!

    Mary Ann, Mobile Food and Beverage Ordering really does save time in the parks and helps you avoid long lines at the more popular quick-service dining locations. If you'd like to utilize this tool, you can use your cash to purchase a Disney Gift Card at most merchandise locations and input that as a payment method in the My Disney Experience app! What a convenient little workaround to be able to utilize all the helpful Mouseketools!

    Well, Mickey and his pals are calling your name! It won't be long until you're snapping photos with everyone's favorite mouse and carrying that Mickey balloon through Cinderella Castle!

    Have a magical stay,
