May 5, 1987, Walt Disney Company released the new Disney dollars in Disneyland theme park in One dollar and Five dollar denominations. They were followed later that year with the Walt Disney World theme park releases.
Disney dollars can be purchased within the Disney theme parks and used to purchase Disney merchandise or kept as a Disney collectable.
Walt Disney continues to produce these very popular Disney Dollars every year since the 1987 releases, except for 1992, 2004, 2006 and 2010,2012.
On November 20th, 1989, the Walt Disney Company introduced the new $10 Disney dollar note featuring Minnie Mouse.
In 2005 the special 50th anniversary of Disneyland $50 bill and a new T series was created for The Disney Stores.
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 for Disney merchandise, 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.
Additional Disney characters that have been featured on the Disney Ten dollar note have included Minnie Mouse, Simba, Sorcerer Mickey, Donald Duck, Mickey and Minnie, Tinker Bell,Cinderella and Stitch.

Disney dollars are created with anti-counterfeiting features such as micro printing, and hard to scan/copy reflective ink and imprinting on the front and back of the bill.
In addition, the Disney dollar notes are printed with unique serial numbers and series letters which are unique to each Disney dollar and theme park.
These numbers and letters are specific and individual to each bill in order of when they are printed, from 00000001 to 99999999. However each set of bills has a limited quantity, some may be a small printed amount, such as for the limited edition $50, or large quantities for the $1.
The Disney note will have a Scrooge McDuck signature on every bill. Scrooge McDuck is the signing treasurer. Tinker Bell has always graced the Disney dollar being a key element found on each side since the first 1987.
Disney dollars have small bits of glitter scattered on them on later series and this is referred to as Pixie Dust.
All Disney dollars, except for Proof or Specimens have a unique serial number assigned to it and the series year.
