    For the pressed penny machine I’ve read they take cards (credit/debit) but do they take Disney gift cards, trying to plan ahead for our trip this fall.

    Welcome to planDisney, Amanda!

    An iconic pressed penny from a Walt Disney World Coin Press Machine was my mom's favorite souvenir when I was a child. There's something just so cool watching the press turn an everyday thing into an extraordinary memento. 

    I, too, love using Disney Gift Cards while visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth. You can use them just about anywhere. From dining and snacks to shopping and entertainment, they usually have you covered. Unfortunately, at the moment, Disney Gift Cards won't work at the Coin Press Machines. However, they do take debit, credit, and smartphone wallet payments like Apple Pay. 

    AN EXTRA GEM: By the way, you can manage up to six cards and combine up to $1,000 onto one card on the Disney Gift Cards website. Go to the "My Cards" tab on the website and log in to your account. It's a great way to see your current balances and to quickly transfer funds from one card to another.

    Amanda, I also recommend that you check the Disney Parks Blog to be among the first to hear about the latest updates. Your trip is at the end of the year, so you never know if the machines will be updated once more before your magical visit. I hope that this helps. Give us a holler here at planDisney if you have any other Disney vacation planning questions. I'm all ears! 

    Magic always,
