    Do the theme parks accept cash payment for purchases or just credit cards?

    Hiya, Tracy, and welcome to planDisney from a fellow Floridian! Isn't it fabulous to live so close to the magic of Walt Disney World Resort? You'll be arriving for those Mickey hugs soon, so let's talk about that unavoidable part of a Disney vacation: "Paying the Bill." 

    I'm happy to inform you that cash is accepted for most food, merchandise, and theme park ticket purchases. ATMs are located throughout Disney property for your convenience. To find one, tap the location pin icon at the bottom of your My Disney Experience mobile app and choose "Guest Services" from the dropdown menu above the map. Select "Show List" in the upper right and choose "ATM" to see where machines are located. 

    Remember that some kiosks and vendors might not accept cash, but I've heard from my pals that the strolling balloon vendors only accept cash. It's always a good idea to ask upfront what payment methods are accepted at various locations. 

    You can also pay at most shops and restaurants with credit, debit, and Disney Gift Cards. One of the best perks of staying at a Disney Resort Hotel is being able to scan my MagicBand at many shops and restaurants to add the charge to my room's folio. I scan my band, enter my PIN, and I'm on my way. There's no need to dig for my wallet which always ends up at the very bottom of my backpack!

    One of my favorite spots to spend money is the Creations Shop at EPCOT. Their selection of merchandise can't be beat, and they typically offer exclusive festival merchandise. My pal Amy recently picked up an Orange Bird crossbody bag for me as a memento of the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival. She had it shipped directly from the store to my house. Everyone needs a pal like Amy!

    Tracy, we love to dance at Disney but must eventually pay the piper. I wish you a visit full of fabulous finds, super souvenirs, and zero buyer's remorse! Please stop by planDisney anytime.

    Magic awaits,
