    Is disneyland cashless?

    Hello there Karla, and welcome to planDisney! 

    While cash is still accepted at most locations throughout the Disneyland Resort, including for merchandise as well as for food and drinks, many guests choose to use cashless forms of payment, such as credit cards or mobile payments.

    My favorite way to pay is with the Disneyland mobile app! You can save your credit to the app to quickly and conveniently pay for many items in the parks. You can also use the app to scan Disney gift cards if you'd prefer that payment method instead - though you're currently not able to save them as a form of payment at this time and would need to scan the card for each purchase.

    I prefer using the mobile app because it also allows me to utilize Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering as well as Mobile Merchandise Checkout. These are some of my favorite recent technology-based additions to the parks since they vastly cut down on the time I have to spend in lines. Huge win in my book! 

    Having said all of the above, if you're asking because you'd prefer to pay in cash - you most certainly still can do that! However, if you'd like to use cash while utilizing the mobile app, I have to give a huge hat tip to my friend and fellow planDisney panelist Kamini for this great workaround to utilize both on your next visit!

    Thank you for reaching out to us, Karla! I hope that you have a magical time at the Disneyland Resort! If you have any further questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask.

    Have a Magical Day,
