Disney Dollars Still Available?

My friend has asked me to pick up some Disney Dollars for her children while I am there next week. However, I don't know if they still sell them at DL/DCA/DTD.

Gift cards just won't do.

TIA!

We had this problem last year when we took the kids at Christmastime. My kiddos are too young to understand using a gift card and how much money is on it -- we wanted them to visually see how much they were spending. Anyway, there are a couple places in the parks where you can still get them. We got ours at the Star Trader in Tomorrowland. You cannot get them at Disney stores anymore. Good luck - and have fun!

It's been a while since I bought any, but the last three places where I did purchase some were the Emporium on Main Street, City Hall, and Star Traders in Tomorrowland.

We just bought some a couple weeks ago. The Emporium on Main Street sent us to City Hall and that's where we bought ours.

Star Traders even had a sign up behind the register saying that Disney Dollars were available for purchase.

Talking

Does anyone know if you can order some online and have them shipped to you? I wanted to add some for each of the kids backpacks of goodies that they will have on the trip down there.

I think you can, but they charge shipping. Since Disney Dollars are simply worth what is on the piece of paper, it means you're paying an extra cost to use your own money.

What some people have done is make up their own to give to their kids, while putting real money aside, then as soon as you arrive, get the DDollars and swap them out with the ones you made at home.
