    Where can I find a map of the pressed coin machines?

    Hi Stephanie!

    Welcome to planDisney! Thank you so much for asking this Disneyland Resort planning question to us hEAR!

    Oh this is such a fun question. I was in the parks just last week looking for these cute coins myself. I'm happy to say that there are a few different places to find these fun machines. The first is the Disneyland.com website does have a map of listed coin press locations; to get hEAR I used this link about Pressed Coin Machines and clicked on the map. Once the map populated, I zoomed in a lot. The second way I sEARched was in the Disneyland Mobile App. When you open the app, click the search magnifying glass on the bottom row of gray icons. From the new page, type in 'Pressed Coin Machines' in the top search bar, and then click the link when it pops up. From this new page, click the light blue 'Find on Map' icon and you'll now have the same map as earlier but in an on-the-go version. And the third way I found these coin smashers was just by keeping my eyes peeled as some locations aren't listed on the map. There are a few presses in the three Disneyland Resort Hotels (Just like Ariel, they'll be close to where the people are - think lobbies and the waiting areas of restaurant check-ins.) I know for a fact World of Disney has two machines inside two of its merchandise rooms. And there are even a few machines not listed that are on the edges of the walkways in the Downtown Disney District, like near restrooms or restaurant stroller parking.

    Another hot tip that I wanted to pass on is that most of these machines are penny press machines, but some are nickel or even quarter presses. Most of them have switched over now to where you don't need to have physical coins on you, they'll accept dollar bills or even credit cards and apple pay. In these instances, the machines will provide you with the newest, shiniest coin you've ever seen. However, be sure to really look at the design options in each machine (there are usually three different designs) before you scan your e-money because at some of the machines your options are "buy one coin for $1 or all three designs for $3", and if you opt to use a credit card or your smartwatch you'll auto-magically purchase and receive all three designs.

    I hope this helped to clEAR up your question, Stephanie! When you're out shopping about, be sure to look for Disneyland-themed pressed coin books where you can keep and store your collection. (I found mine at World of Disney but I've seen them all around.) Also, check out our official planDisney Instagram account for even more Disneyland Resort tips and tricks!
