    Is Disneyland cashless? I have parents asking about sending their child with money or a card.

    Hi there, Kathryn,

    While the Disneyland Resort encourages cashless and even contactless payments, cash is also accepted as payment at shops, restaurants, and most experiences, including Savi's Workshop – Handbuilt Lightsabers and Droid Depot.

    There are a few things that can only be purchased with a debit card, credit card, or Disney Gift Card. They include using the Disneyland mobile app to: place mobile food and beverage orders, buy souvenirs using Merchandise Mobile Checkout, purchase the Disney Genie+ service, and purchase return times for attractions with an individual Lightning Lane not included with Genie+.

    Tony’s Tip: As I mentioned, Disney Gift Cards are accepted for payment within the Disneyland mobile app. They are also accepted at nearly all point of sales locations throughout the Disneyland Resort. (Only non-Disney locations cannot accept Disney Gift Cards at this time. They are located mostly in the Downtown Disney District.) I consider carrying Disney Gift Cards safer than carrying cash, especially if it is a Disney Gift Card eGift added to my phone’s digital wallet. And for budget-conscious parents, like me, many stores sell Disney Gift Cards at a discount to customers with a membership or store payment card, including discount warehouse clubs and retailers like Target.

    I hope you and the children visiting the Disneyland Resort have a magical time, Kathryn. Please visit us at planDisney again if there is anything else we can help with during your preparations to visit The Happiest Place on Earth!
