    I'll be bringing my family to Orlando next year. Is American Express accepted in the Walt Disney Florida parks? How good generally is Amex acceptance in the park and out in the Orlando area? Will I be able to use it for for food and gifts in park?

    Hi Luke!

    Yes, Walt Disney World does accept American Express.  American Express is very widely accepted throughout the Orlando area, however you will find those stores that do not accept it for one reason or another.  In those cases, I would make sure to have a small amount of cash on hand, or a Visa/Mastercard debit card (which are also accepted).

    Keep in mind, street vendors (such as the balloons sold at the parks) only take cash. 

    Have a magical vacation!
