Woo Hoo....Disney Dollars for Christmas!

My Mom asked what I wanted and we really don't NEED anything. I knew we were going to WDW in a couple of weeks so I said "What about Disney Dollars for a nice meal while there." So my Mom, totally not a Disney person at all found Disney Dollars and wrapped them up for me. So now I'll have a nice meal for a Christams gift!

I'd never seen Disney Dollars before. They are really pretty! :D

I have been using them as a way to save up for my last couple of trips.

I also collect the $1, because Disney changes the design every so often for special events like Mickey's 65th birthday, the Millenium Celebration, and the 100 Years of Magic. The 2005 $1 will feature Chicken Little, which is the first time a DD$ has been aimed specifically at marketing a Disney movie.

I love Disney dollars. I wish we could buy them here in Canada because I think it's a great, fun way to save for a trip.

Have a great meal with them.

Disney dollars are great! My DH & I have both been with the same company for 20 years. They presented us with gift certificates to the local mall. The mall issues cards now that you cant just buy something little and cash so after we bought a couple of things we took the cards to the disney store and got Disney dollars with the rest! It was great. It paid for a couple of good meals at Disney last week!

Pardon a question from a "newbie", but where can you purchase Disney Dollars?

At the Disney store is one place but I have never looked anywhere else so I'm not sure about other places.

thanks. I remember them from when I went with my parents. They would be a great way to save ahead and to give the kids preset spending money. I'll check the Disney Store at the mall,

Thumbs up

I have been buying Disney Dollars for DS for the past few weeks, just $5 or so each time. He is almost 9, and every time he has a little cash he wants to spend it IMMEDIATELY. He isn't very interested in the things at the Disney Store in the mall, so this was my way of forcing him to save for the trip.

My mom, my sister, and my boss all gave him Disney Dollars for Christmas, and I took the check he got from some friends and turned that into Disney Dollars, too. He wasn't very happy about my strategy at first, but now he has $112 to spend at WDW! He will have some plain cash for pressed pennies and arcade games, but the bulk of his money will be Disney Dollars. And when his money is gone, it's gone! This will be a good lesson in budgeting.

I love Disney Dollars! We are lucky to live in a city that has a Disney Store in just about every mall, including the mall about a mile from our home!

You can buy Disney Dollars from any Disney Store in the US, or from WDW Mail Order - (407) 363-6200, or at Guest Relations at WDW parks and resorts.

My daughter (3 in a week) got $115 in Disney Dollars for Christmas! We'll go in Sept. I think $115 for a 3 year old is a lot! But I know people gave them to us to help with our trip. But I'm sure we'll be buying our princess a lot of stuff with it! Every little bit helps!

I put them straight into my savings bucket that people talked about here. With my dollars saved, and my Disney dollars, and my Disney Visa Rewards Dollars, we shouldn't have to spend anything else the whole time there. :D
