From February 12 through March 30, 2018, Disney will be testing a cashless-only payment system at Jambo House at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. During this time, guests at the resort will only be able to pay via electronic methods: MagicBands, credit cards, Disney Gift Cards, Disney Rewards redemption cards, and e-payment sytems (Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, Google Pay).
Guests staying at Animal Kingdom Lodge can provide a cash deposit at check-in for room charges. In addition, cash will still be accepted for gratuities.
Guests with resort or dining reservations during this time are in the process of being notified of the change.
There’s no information yet on when or if this will be rolled out to other resorts.
