    What coins are needed for the coin press? What coin gets pressed? I want to bring a 2017 coins to press since that is when we are going. Also, how many in the magic kingdom? Thanks!!! Yes I should know how they work...

    Welcome Home, Laura!

    Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your fabulous question about Coin Press Machines at Walt Disney World Resort. I absolutely love elongated coin/pressed penny souvenirs! They are affordable, fun to make, and readily available at Walt Disney World Resort.

    The coin press machines at Walt Disney World Resort will press a design on a penny for 51 cents ($0.51) or on a quarter for $1.25. You will need 2 quarters and 1 penny for the penny coin press machines, and 5 quarters for the quarter coin press machines. I highly recommend packing your coins into prescription medication bottles or mini M&M tubes in quarter-quarter-penny order or in groups of 5 quarters. This will help save you time as well as keep your coins organized!

    There are over 31 machines in 26 locations at Magic Kingdom Park! Each machine offers 2-3 designs for over 90 total designs at Magic Kingdom Park alone. You can find coin press machine maps for all Walt Disney World Resort destinations by visiting the coin press machines page.

    Laura, the year of your coin will not show on your final design. It is recommended you choose clean, bright coins for the best results. In fact, all-copper pennies made before 1982 create the best results. If you cannot find any all-copper pennies, make sure the ones you bring are clean.

    If you have any other questions before, during, or after your Walt Disney World Resort vacation please visit the Moms Panel again. We are always here to help sprinkle your vacation with extra Pixie Dust!

    Wishing you Endless Magic,
