Mobile Currency or Credit card in DLP?

Hi all,

We are driving to DLP in August for 3 days & Iím just wondering what you all do money wise for such a short break?

We havenít got plans to go to Europe for a good while after this mini-break, so donít really want to be bringing euros home again - but equally is it easier to have some cash for snacks/drinks etc?

We are a family of four (two teenage boys) & are staying onsite with no plans other than spending the whole time in the Disney bubble!

Many thanks for any advice 👍

I generally take a mix of cash and card just in case. We got very caught out earlier this year when I thought I'd risk it and just take a card. Never again!
Just hold onto the euros as you're bound to be back at some point.

We have a FairFx card with Euros which we have used before. We also now have a Halifax Clarity card so you can use that for any currency. Will probably take some cash too.

I take about Ä100 cash for things like ice cream etc where they don't accept card, then I use my credit card, Post Office and Nationwide both have commission free cards

Are you staying onsite? If so we charge anything in the parks to our room key and pay the balance at the end of stay with a Halifax clarity credit card at the hotel.

i don't take any cash. Just a credit card which is charge free to use abroad. I also have my debit card & another credit card as back up.

Most ice cream places take cards.

We take cash but pay for meals with card if we donít have the free dining plan.

Yes, we are staying in Hotel Cheyenne, so charging to the room would be a good option.

Iím wondering if I take enough cash for the last nights meal, and then if I need cash for something beforehand so be it, and if not, at least I can Ďuse it upí on the final night 👍

Thank you everyone for your replies, I really appreciate it 👍
