    Another question, thank you moms! I love pressed pennies and my son is impressed with the ones I have. Is there somewhere on property I can make change to be able to use the machines? Coming from the UK I’ll only have notes until we start buying stuff!

    Hi Nyssa,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks for bringing us your great question! My family LOVES collecting pressed pennies. They make such a great souvenir to remember something special about our vacation, and we also think it's lots of fun to search for the perfect one. We're currently searching for each of the "2018" pressed pennies that were made for each theme park. We have the ones from Disney's Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom Park and will resume searching for the Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios ones on our next vacation! So fun!

    To answer your question, Nyssa, you should be able to ask for change at any store or restaurant. You may even ask the Cast Member to search for the shiniest pennies for you. Then, have fun collecting pressed pennies from hundreds of coin press machines located all throughout the Walt Disney World Resort. Did you know you can purchase a souvenir book to keep all of your Disney pennies together? They'll have them for sale at several different shops, but you should definitely be able to find them at Emporium at Magic Kingdom Park or World of Disney at Disney Springs. 

    Have a truly magical vacation, Nyssa, and enjoy finding more pennies to share with your son!
