No More Disney Dollars
Disney Dollars have been around forever as a favorite of kids and collectors. I know someone with stacks of 'em. Well, starting May 16, Disneyland is doing away with Disney Dollars and they will no longer be available for purchase. The Disney Dollar has gone the way of the dinosaur and Disney will no longer be offering them instead going with the more preferred tool of currency exchange these days - the infamous gift card.
So what about those people who are sitting on stacks of Disney Dollars. Well, they are redeemable forever so they still can be used to buy things in the park, just new ones will not be sold. But what most likely will happen is the people who have the Disney Dollars will hang on to them and offer them up on eBay at a hefty profit as the dollars, like anything Disney, increase in value over time.
And what about Disney? For years they basically sat on free money selling currency the may never be redeemed for anything. Just selling pieces of paper. Genius.
