    Hi, Is Disney California adventure accepting cash payments or is it only card payments?

    Hi Dana! 

    Welcome and thank you for dropping by planDisney with your question today! 

    If you have not visited recently, let me tell you what to expect! Upon arrival, all Guests are required to undergo a temperature screening prior to entering the Disneyland Resort. Next, you’ll be required to pass through a security screening. And, don’t forget that in order to gain admission, all Guests age 2 and older are required to wear a face covering that is secured with ties or ear loops. Guests may only remove their face covering while actively eating or drinking outside. All Guests are encouraged to use cashless payment options such as debit and credit cards, Disney Gift Cards and mobile wallet when making purchases at the Disneyland Resort. Many Quick Service restaurants are accepting mobile orders only, so make sure you’ve downloaded the Disneyland App prior to arrival. Retail shops and food carts may still accept cash. Just ask the Cast Member to be sure. 

    I do have a pro tip for you if you’re looking to stick to a budget! I recommend purchasing a Disney Gift Card prior to your visit. Load it with the equivalent of the amount of cash you’d like to bring. You can even register your Gift Card online so that the balances can be protected if lost or stolen. Plus, Disney Gift Cards were recently added as an approved form of payment when placing Mobile Food & Beverage Orders on the Disneyland App

    I hope you found this information to be helpful in planning your upcoming visit! Please come see us again and again with future questions!
