RIP Disney Dollars

Disney announced yesterday that they will stop printing their iconic “Disney Dollars” on May 14th.

The currency, which is worth the same as their U.S. currency equivalents, have been used at Disney Parks since 1987. With the era of gift cards and electronic payments, currency is becoming less and less important to commerce and Disney Dollars, no doubt, were at risk of becoming high-overhead collectibles.

Disney Dollars have no expiration and will continue to be accepted at parks, but will no longer be distributed after tomorrow.

I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us and DisneyEverything.com My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back but was deepened by two semi-recent developments:1) The birth of my son (who is now 6 years old and can't get enough Disney); and 2) Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm/Star Wars (did I mention I was a super Star Wars geek?)I recently came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching it with my son, so it only made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.
