    What methods of payment are accepted in the Disneyland parks?

    Hi there, Sonya,

    There are several different methods of payment accepted throughout the Disneyland Resort. Most Guests get by using either cash or a major credit card or debit card, including the Disney Visa card, other Visa cards, MasterCard, American Express, Discover Card, JCB, and Diner’s Club. Disney-operated locations also accept Disney Gift Cards and Disney Rewards Redemption Cards. I’ve even used Disney Gift Cards to purchase from balloon vendors on Main Street, U.S.A. The list of Disney-operated venues includes every dining location and merchandise location inside the theme parks except for Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop and a few outdoor vendors such as face painting and caricatures.

    In the Downtown Disney District, Disney Gift Cards and Disney Rewards Redemption Cards are only accepted at Disney-operated merchandise locations, such as WonderGround Gallery, Marceline's Confectionery, and more. All of the dining destinations in the Downtown Disney District are operated by third parties and only accept major credit cards or cash.

    In the Disneyland Resort Hotels, you’ll be able to use cash, major credit cards, major debit cards, Disney Gift Cards, and Disney Rewards Redemption Cards. Disneyland Resort Hotel Guests who link an approved payment card to their room reservation may use the Disneyland mobile app to charge purchases to their room at Disney-operated locations throughout the hotels, theme parks, and select locations in the Downtown Disney District. Check with the hotel front desk to inquire about exchanging foreign currency or cashing traveler's checks. A recent policy change means that personal checks are no longer accepted.

    Tony’s Tip: When my family and I visit the Disneyland Resort, we use the Disneyland mobile app to place mobile food and beverage orders and for Merchandise Mobile Checkout wherever they are supported. To make use of these convenient services, you can link a payment method to your account in the mobile app. To do so, open the ☰ feature menu, select “My Profile” then “Payment Method.” You may also opt to use a Disney Gift Card or Disney Rewards Redemption Card with these services and other purchases in the mobile app.

    I hope you have a magical time at the Disneyland Resort, Sonya!
