Disney Dollars Debut : 1987With ones and fives, Disney Dollars debuted at Disneyland on May 5, 1987 and at Walt Disney World on October 2, 1987. Each bill is uniquely numbered, which made them an instant hit with Disney collectors. It was imperative that the “happiest currency on earth” had a realistic look and feel so Disney Dollars were printed on 100 percent cotton at a specialty printer in Battle Creek, Michigan. The first Disney Dollars featured Mickey Mouse, who appeared on the $1 bill, and Goofy, who appeared on the $5 bill. Later, a $10 bill featuring Minnie Mouse was added on November 20, 1989, and a $50 bill featuring Mickey Mouse was added on July 17, 2005, for the 50th anniversary of Disneyland. The Walt Disney Company was one of the first private institutions to print its own money and have it accepted and used like the U.S. Dollar and each Disney Dollar is signed by currency treasurer Scrooge McDuck. For most years since 1987, Disney Dollars have come in various designs and denominations, celebrating Disney characters, anniversaries, films, and attractions. They may be used as payment, just like cash, at any Disney location in the United States, including the Disneyland Resort in California, the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, and even aboard the Disney Cruise Line.
Walt Disney Archives.Celebrating Disney Dollars : Currency with Character
Although Disney “currency” has been available since the early 1930s––back when children could use “Mickey Mouse Cones” bills to get ice cream cones at local “Mickey Mouse Clubs”––none has been as popular as Disney Dollars, the official currency of Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort.
Disney Dollars currency was one of several creative projects spearheaded by Disney Legend Jack Lindquist, who was then developing unique marketing and entertainment concepts for Disney theme parks. “We figured that we’re bigger than a lot of small countries, why don’t we have our own currency?” Jack said. With that, The Walt Disney Company became one of the first private organizations to print its own money and have it accepted in theme parks like the U.S. Dollar.
The unique currency was first available at Disneyland on May 5, 1987, when four Anaheim motorcycle police officers ceremoniously escorted an armored truck to the park main entrance. Scrooge McDuck––Secretary of the Treasury, whose signature can be found on each bill––unloaded sacks of dollars at the ticket booths with news cameras on hand to capture all the action. Guest Dale Castillo was the first person to purchase the happiest currency on earth.
Disney Dollars became so popular that they were introduced at Walt Disney World five months later, on October 2. Originally, $1 and $5 denominations (featuring Mickey and Goofy, respectively) were offered. The $10 bill, featuring Minnie Mouse, was added in 1989, with a $50 bill featuring Mickey offered in 2005 for the 50th anniversary of Disneyland.
And here’s a fun fact: Disney Dollars were the first currency to be four-color printed in the U.S.! It took more than 203 man-hours and hundreds of employees to engrave and create the original $1 and $5 notes.
Throughout the years, more than a dozen characters and unique designs have been featured on the bills, which are just as fun to collect as they are to use!
