    Can i buy the disney 50th anniversary medallions outside of the disney world parks? I bought 4 out of a machine i found at hollywood studios, but after we got home i found out there are over 50 different medallions available

    Hi Cliff,
    Happy New Year! I hope your Christmas visit to Walt Disney World Resort was merry and magical. I'm so glad you've returned to planDisney with your question about the eye-popping 50th Anniversary medallions.  Aren't they gorgeous?!  One of my favorite ways to ward off the post-Disney vacation blues is by admiring the new additions to my family's pressed penny collection.  We've been collecting for five years and have over 20 unique keepsakes from our travels. Each coin comes with a story and a smile, like the Toy Story pressed quarter my children were gifted at the bus stop of Disney's Wilderness Lodge by a fellow collector. 

    There are over 50 collectible medallions available throughout Walt Disney World Resort that commemorate the 50th Anniversary Celebration. Machines can be found at all four theme parks, Disney Springs and select Disney Resorts Collection hotels.  Each medallion features one of the Disney Fab 50 characters, from Dumbo to Soul's Joe Gardner.  You can even find a medallion featuring Mickey and Minnie at Disney's Contemporary Resort.  While an online search will likely find folks selling the medallions with a markup, I encourage you to embrace your inner Jack Sparrow and plot your return to The World's Most Magical Celebration to continue your quest for magical treasure.  I also like to enlist the help of friends traveling to Walt Disney World Resort when it comes to building my coin collection. Cliff, you will always remember your luck at finding that machine at Disney's Hollywood Studios, what other stories will your magical collection tell?

    There are quite a few items for sale as part of the Walt Disney World Resort 50th Anniversary Collection on, with new items dropping regularly throughout the 18-month celebration. However you choose to remember the magic, may you always have the memories.

    Your fellow treasure seeker,
