    How Does the Cash to Card Kiosk Work?

    The Cash to Card Kiosk (Ready Station) allows guests to transfer the cash that they have in-hand, to a prepaid card.

    The prepaid card will allow them to use their money everywhere in the park, due to cash only being accepted in certain locations.

    Unlike an ATM, where customers have to pay a fee to use it, there are no fees to convert your money to the prepaid card.

    There are multiple locations all over the park, the one with the least amount of lines is by Classic Candy (Number 8 on the map) at the boardwalk.
