Last summer, Disney announced that it will no longer be issuing new Disney Dollars. They are pushing for people to use Disney Gift Cards. As of May 13, 2016 you could no longer purchase Disney Dollars.
Disney hadn't announced if/when they will officially stop accepting Disney Dollars in the parks. There are no expiration date on the Disney Dollars, so bills that already have been purchased still can be used.
For now, most people will just hold on to their Disney Dollars as a collector's item.
Disney first sold Disney Dollars on May 5, 1987 in Disneyland and then in DisneyWorld on October 5th. On the first day of sale, Disneyland sold $60,000 worth of Disney Dollars.
Had Disney not canceled the Disney Dollar last year, this past weekend would have been the 30th Anniversary of the first one sold.
Each Disney Dollar has the Scrooge McDuck's signature as Treasurer.
Did you know that some Disney Dollars have a high value for collectors?
For example: the "Disney Dollars 2000" a $10 Donald Very Rare D Series is one of the rarest there is. At one time that particular Disney Dollar was going for $1,500 on eBay.
If you have any Disney Dollars in your collection, check out eBay to see if it's valuable.
