    In the parks can we use cash for purchases or is a card preferred?

    Howdy Patricia!

    Welcome to planDisney!  Thank you for sharing your question with us!

    As Mickey and his pals continue welcoming guests “Returning to a World of Magic,” things may look a bit different at this time!  To maintain a high safety standard, the Walt Disney World Resort encourages all guests to use a form of payment that requires the least person-to-person contact.  At this time, credit cards are preferred, but the Walt Disney World Resort will accept cash.  

    If you were planning on using cash, I recommend putting some of your money on a Disney Gift Card or a Disney eGift Card.  You will be able to use your gift card at almost every location throughout the Walt Disney World Resort.  I love to collect Disney Gift Cards throughout the year to use on my Walt Disney World Resort visits!

    The Walt Disney World Resort is asking all guests to utilize the Mobile Food Order option on their My Disney Experience!  By using the Mobile Food Order option, you will be able to choose your location, the time of your arrival, create your meal, and pay for it from your smartphone!  You will pay for your meal from your smartphone with the credit card or Disney Gift Card linked to your My Disney Experience.  Then, once you have arrived at the restaurant, make sure to click the option to let the restaurant know that you have arrived!  At this point, they will begin to fill your order and notify you on your My Disney Experience when and where to pick up your meal!  I love the Mobile Food Order option because it allows more time to relax, and no one has to stand in line!

    During the phased re-opening, make sure to check the Disney Parks Blog to stay informed of everything to see and do during your visit to Neverland!  If you have any more questions as you continue to plan your vacation, please come back to planDisney!  We are always here to help you with all your planning questions, Patricia!

    See Ya Real Soon,
