Cinderella Castle 50th Night

    Hi! I know there is a map with the locations of the pressed penny machines on the MDE site, but I am specifically looking for the 50th Anniversary Mickey and Minnie pennies. Is there a way to know what pennies are available in each machine? Thank you.

    A penny for your thoughts, Karen! It's my pleasure to welcome you back to planDisney! 

    This is such a great question. I had to do some digging, but it was so much fun learning about all the amazing pressed pennies you can collect throughout the Walt Disney World Resort. You may have even inspired me to take on a new hobby!

    While I wasn't able to come up with any "official" listings of which pennies are in which machines, Professor Google did point me to some helpful outside resources. Apparently, pressed pennies are so popular that other Guests have taken detailed inventories of them! I can't link it here, but on a site called Presscoins.com there's a list of all the new 50th Anniversary designs (along with pretty much every other coin of the realm!). When you go to that site, hover your cursor over the "News" tab near the top of the page, then go to "New Coins." Scroll down a bit to see that the Mickey and Minnie 50th Anniversary coins are available in the Main Street Railroad Station location at the Magic Kingdom Park. There's also a photo there to help you identify it. I can't vouch for the accuracy of this info, but it's a great place to start! If you get to the park and find that the coins aren't in that machine, I'm sure a nearby Cast Member can help point you in the right direction.

    I also saw Mickey and Minnie featured on some anniversary themed pressed pennies at Disney's Contemporary Resort and Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, so you might want to check for those as well. The designs are specific to each Resort hotel, so they could  be a fun addition to your collection!

    Karen, what a fun idea to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of The Most Magical Place on Earth in this unique way. Thanks for introducing me to the shiny world of pressed penny collecting! I'm so glad you stopped by to see us again here at planDisney, and have fun hunting for your tiny treasures!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
