Disney Dollars discontinued at Walt Disney World and Disneyland

However exhilarating you find the biennial opportunity to explore all the branches of The Walt Disney Company, there's no getting around the exhaustion that comes after three days of crowds, lines and excitement at the Anaheim Convention Center.
