    I will be visiting Epcot next week, and I was wondering if foreign currency can be purchased at each individual country? For example, while visiting the Mexico showcase can I purchase Pesos, or while in France can I buy Francs? Thanks!


    Hi Megan!
     
    Epcot's World Showcase enables guests the opportunity to "visit" eleven different countries without stepping outside of their own "backyard".  Dining, entertainment and attractions offering a sampling of the countries' flavors and lifestyle make World Showcase a favorite among many guests, myself included.
     
    Purchasing currency from the countries in World Showcase is a wonderful way to commemorate your visit.  Happily, I can tell you YES, you are able to purchase foreign currency in World Showcase.  Many of the stores/shops sell souvenir packs of coins representing each of the countries in World Showcase. These coins are uncirculated and come prepackaged in a sheet of 12 coins. 
     
    Hope this helps you plan your magical vacation!

Hi there! The Disney Parks have been a part of my life since I was a little girl. Introducing my children, husband, and family to all the magic that Walt Disney World can offer has led to countless moments with Mickey and Friends, Disney Vacation Club membership and fun on the high seas with Disney Cruise Lines! Our vacations are usually centered around a visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth, and I am super excited to help you plan and create magical moments for you and your families!
