    do Disney Store gift cards work everywhere (stores, food, etc) in the WDW parks? I've heard we have to exchange regular money into Disney Money. is this true? thx!!

    Hi Danielle,

    There is absolutely no need change regular US dollars into Disney money. Disney hotels, shops, and restaurants all take US currency, as well as major credit cards, debit cards, and several other payment methods.

    Disney does have something called "Disney dollars" that you can purchase and use in place of cash in the parks, but few people do this and it is certainly not mandatory.

    You can use Disney gift cards in the vast majority of shops and restaurants at Walt Disney World. There may be a few cart-type vendors that only take cash or a few non-Disney-owned restaurants that do not accept the gift cards, but you will find that these are quite rare.

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know if you have additional questions.
