What are Disney Dollars? 

Disney Dollars were a unique private issue known as a corporate scrip that the Walt Disney Company issued from 1987 until 2016. They are similar to contemporary U.S. dollars in their shape, size, and design but were not legal tender outside of Disney properties.  

What is a Scrip? 

Scrip is a substitute for legal tender. In the 19th century, some logging and mining camps paid workers in company scrip. Since many working camps were in remote areas with little available cash, scrip was used to pay workers, and workers could pay for goods at the company store with scrip. This allowed significant markup on behalf of the company store, and payment of U.S. wages in scrip has been illegal since the 1938 Fair Labor Standards Act. 

Disney Dollars are a corporate scrip that can be used at face value at company points of sale, although most scrip is issued as gift certificates or gift cards today. 

History of Disney Dollars 

Disney Dollars were conceived of by Hayy Brice, a Main Street Disneyland silhouette cutter, at a Disney collector’s convention in 1987. His concept was of a souvenir sold in the park that could also be used as money in the park.  

The first Disney Dollars were issued at Disneyland on May 5, 1987, and at Walt Disney World’s Epcot on October 5 of the same year. They were produced by EPI in Battle Creek, Michigan and were the first four-color notes issued in the United States. Early Disney Dollars were available in $1 and $5 denominations, with a $10 denomination added in 1990. In 2005, a $50 denomination of Disney Dollar was issued. Scrooge McDuck was the signing treasurer of Disney Dollars, which contained numerous anti-counterfeiting measures that included microprinting, reflective ink, serial numbers, as well as glitter.

Are Disney Dollars Made Today? 

Disney Dollars have not been printed since May 14, 2016, due to increased gift card use. They may still be used at select Disney store locations, the Walt Disney World, Disneyland Resorts, Disney cruise ships, and parts of Castaway Cay.  

Are Disney Dollars Valuable? 

Like bullion coins, Disney Dollars tend to be worth more than their face value to the right collector. Since they have not been issued in close to a decade, Disney Dollars have an active secondary market where collectors and Disney enthusiasts are able to continue collecting them. 

Quick Guides to Investing

Step 1:

Why Buy Physical Gold and Silver?

If you are concerned about the volatility of the stock market, you’re not alone. The extreme highs and lows of the stock market often lead investors towards safe-haven assets, like bullion. Historically, the Precious Metals market has an inverse relationship with the stock market, meaning that when stocks are up, bullion is down and vice versa.

Step 2:

How Much Gold and Silver Should You Have?

This question is one of the most important for investors to answer. After all, experts suggest limits on how much of any types of investments should go into a portfolio. After deciding to purchase and own Precious Metals and considering how much money to allocate, one can then think about how much and what to buy at any point in time.

Step 3:

Which Precious Metals Should I Buy?

With the frequent changes in the market and countless Precious Metal products available, choosing investments can be difficult. Some want Gold or Silver coins, rounds or bars while others want products that are valuable because of their design, mintage or other collectible qualities. Also, collectors may shop for unique sets and individual pieces for their collections.

Step 4:

When to Buy Gold & Silver

After considering why, how much, and what Precious Metals products to buy, an investor’s next step is when to buy them. This decision requires an understanding of market trends and the impact of economic factors on precious metal prices.
