In today’s electronic society, it’s easy to forgot to have cash on hand. I rarely have cash with me. When going to the Disneyland Resort, however, it is still very important to carry cash. Many outdoor vending Cast Members still only take cash (although many do take cards). Also, and very important for parents with babies and toddlers, the Baby Care Centers only accept cash for those items you may have forgotten at home like wipes, diapers, pacifiers, etc.
If you need to get cash while at the resort and want to stay away from the ATM machines and their fees, consider getting Disney Dollars. Disneyland guests can purchase Disney Dollars with their credit cards/check cards and use them in the parks just as they would cash. Click here for more information on Disney Dollars.
