Our first stop at DL was always City Hall to get our family Disney dollars for spending money. Lately we have been using Disney gift cards, but I must admit we miss the Disney dollars. Does anyone still use DD's or have we all gone to gift cards?

Every year, I still stop in a get my Niece DD to spend at the park!  We usually go after school is out, so how much money she gets depends on her Progress Report!  It's the teacher in me I can't help it!   - chunkgirl  249.4 #1356 8:58AM
I love it!! Sounds like you are a great teacher!! - adisneyfamily  1003.9 #187 11:24AM
We think that the Disney dollars are more fun then a gift card. - Tealtownfan  1015.6 #184 7:59AM
I have to agree the DD's are so cute and I love how they look and feel! - adisneyfamily  1003.9 #187 8:11AM
I kind of miss the Disney Dollars too, but I LOVE the convenience of the gift cards! I think the Disney Dollars are really good for kids learning how to count out money though. Fun picture of the Dollars from the 50th Anniversary by the way! - GibsonGirl87  462.3 #470 8:02AM
That is so true, kids can see how the money is spent and when it's gone it's gone. I think older kids like the gift cards. I love my 50th dollars, kinda wish I had saved more! :β€’} - adisneyfamily  1003.9 #187 8:08AM
The Tooth Fairy brings DD into our homeπŸ˜ƒMy kids love them!! - TigrLvnMomma  159.7 #2572 10:07PM
I Enjoy using the dollars more than gift cards!! But now I'm a collector of them, have from 1987 till the most recent one! They are fun to use - BriarRose110511  230.9 #1596 8:01AM
That's an awesome collection! I wish I had that, especially considering I was born in '87 :) - GibsonGirl87  462.3 #470 8:04AM
Wow I would love to see pics of your collection that is very cool! - adisneyfamily  1003.9 #187 8:06AM
I have a few from the 50th Anniversary I don't ever want to use, but they are valuable money lol - aprilinjune4  483.5 #438 9:14AM
I like the gift cards because I can get them at Ralphs and get 2X points that I use towards a 20 cent a gallon discount at Shell for gas. - sr_citizen_space_ranger  70.0 #4161 9:26AM
That's using your head!! - adisneyfamily  1003.9 #187 12:51PM
This is cute to give a kid a "gift card" for Disney. Its also a great souvenir that costs as low as $1, but valuable to everyone. - Armenda  1159.7 #152 9:58AM
Do they still have the dollars and if so where can you get them? I still have some in my wallet from the mid 90's... Can't let go. It's like I can always carry Disney with me. - Pixietink  9.6 #11330 10:02AM
I do the same thing, I usually carry fast passes, then every time I open my walls I smile!! - adisneyfamily  1003.9 #187 11:26AM
My wallet - adisneyfamily  1003.9 #187 11:27AM
We have never used Disney Dollars, but this trip in October we plan to! Seems like so much more fun than a gift card! :) - lynniesue42  232.4 #1576 2:13PM
Disney dollars are so cool. Our three year old uses Disney dollars, instead of regular money. (In fact, we caught her trying to put some of her Disney dollars into the collection basket at Mass on Sunday, lol! I'm sure our priests would've gotten a kick out of that, had we not swapped it for actual dollars.) - JinglePoe  289.9 #975 2:32PM
That's awesome!! She wanted to share the magic!! - adisneyfamily  1003.9 #187 1:03PM
We buy Disney gift carts at the grocery store with our Amex cause we get double reward points which means that much quicker to our big Disney cruise (besides the one were going on in sept) - hillarygardner  24.0 #6692 4:37PM
I've been collecting them for my daughter for many years now - captnLEO  7.0 #14162 10:41PM
WheN I was a kid growing up in southern California I use to go to the Glendale mall Disney store and buy Disney dollars so I had money to spend at Disneyland. Now I do the same thing as an adult except with the cards :) I do miss the dollars :) - lampwick  310.3 #855 10:44PM
And I buy the cards at Safeway ... We don't have a Disney store up here :) - lampwick  310.3 #855 10:45PM
I get the gift cards more cause the designs change more often,although the disney dollars are cute and all they only change the degins about every two years or on special occasions. - pikarich  5231.5 #22 8:03AM
I agree, we like each picking our own design on our gift cards. I didn't know how often those designs changed, goo to know! - adisneyfamily  1003.9 #187 8:10AM
You can get dd's at City Hall on main street. - adisneyfamily  1003.9 #187 11:29AM
I think I saw a recent post where you can still get them in tommorowland and frontier land - any confirmation on this? - MouseketeerforShort  340.3 #703 11:29AM
I recently found some older ones. Do you think they would still be good? Might be heading to the park for a few hours tomorrow while we are in LA for the weekend. - tigntink  189.6 #2123 11:34AM
They never expire. - Melody_CM  13474.2 #3 11:34AM
O my goodness!!!! Those are so cool! you should show me when I come over today!!! :D - GoofysGirl92  105.1 #3507 11:36AM
I would love to! They really are beautiful and I love the texture an the colors on them. I would love to see pics of someone else's! - adisneyfamily  1003.9 #187 12:54PM
So, you trade in your real moneys for Disney money's? Is that correct? Omg I feel like such a newb asking lmao - sandiibelle  71.3 #4130 1:05PM
Yep, money straight across, no extra fees. And if you need to trade remaining money back to regular money they will. - adisneyfamily  1003.9 #187 1:30PM
Good to know thank you for posting I'd never know other wise! I'll have to do this, this weekend for my little guy! - sandiibelle  71.3 #4130 1:40PM
You're welcome! Have fun!! - adisneyfamily  1003.9 #187 1:52PM
We have one of every bill framed - MickeyMouse0312  56.4 #4527 2:07PM
Oh I love it, why didnt think of that!! - adisneyfamily  1003.9 #187 7:58PM
Meant cards not carts - hillarygardner  24.0 #6692 4:38PM
Disney dollars is the way to go. - adventurerEnDisneylandia {AED}  1143.5 #155 10:01PM
