    My son collects pressed pennies. Where in the resort can I get coins? I tried the front desk and the gift shops a couple of times and they don't have a lot of spares. I don't live in US so I can't do this ahead of time. Thanks.

    Greetings, Diana, welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, we thank you for your loyalty and question about Disney's Coin Press Souvenirs.

    We love Disney's Coin Press Souvenirs commemorating every one of our Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World Resort or Disney Cruise Line vacations and treasure them in the special souvenir collector's books sold at almost every Disney Resort retail outlet. To collect our U.S. denomination coins, I actually begin doing this at home, where often change is handed back to me in U.S. denomination coins. As well, once we land at Orlando International Airport, stop by any retail outlet on your way to Disney's Magical Express Welcome Center and break a U.S. denomination paper bill and ask for coins. I've also had success at any Disney Resort retail outlet, even if I can collect a little at a time.

    Did you know that coin press can be traced back to 1818 Vienna, Austria where they were pressed inside a modified jewelers mill?

    Don't forget to manage your vacation through My Disney Experience online and mobile app for Advanced Dining Reservations, FastPass+ Planning, personalizing MagicBands (which will be waiting for you at your Disney Resort hotel at check-in, or, you may have already associated previously collected MagicBands to your Disney account). The My Disney Experience mobile app will come in handy using complimentary Resort Guest WiFi, especially with the new 'Get Directions' button!

    Be sure to check out the redesigned Disney Springs offering exciting dining, shopping and entertainment.

    Wishing you magical Disney fun with your coin press souvenir collection!
