    Our special needs child misplaced his pressed pennies from Splash Mountain in Magic Kingdom. He is very upset about losing them, and we won’t be going back in time to get him a new set before the ride closes. Any ideas on how to get a set sent to us?

    Welcome to planDisney, Elizabeth! Thanks for bouncing over to our site and sending us a "Tiggerific" question. I'm happy to share my two cents!

    Pressed pennies are such unique keepsakes from any Walt Disney World trip. I fondly remember those days when my boys were young, and we carried our spare change in plastic baggies around the parks. In recent years, the pressed penny machines have evolved, and many of the new versions accept credit cards and Apple Pay. They also allow you to choose just one design or an entire set for easy collecting. Coin Press Machine locations can be located easily with the My Disney Experience Mobile app by typing "Coin Press Machines" into the search bar.

    I'm so sorry to hear that your son's set was misplaced! If he lost them while you were visiting Walt Disney World Resort, you can fill out a Lost and Found report by answering a series of short questions. You'll receive updates via email, and if his pennies are found, they will send them to you!

    Unfortunately, unless you are on property, there isn't a way to get a new set. However, you can usually find them on resale sites such as eBay. The next time you're in town, pick up a pressed penny collectors booklet for safe keeping, available at most Walt Disney World merchandise locations. Some companies will even make your favorite pressed pennies into wearables, such as a bracelet or a necklace (do an online search for pressed penny wearable souvenir bracelet).

    Thank you for giving me a penny for my thoughts, Elizabeth! Best wishes, and I'll send some pixie dust your way that it all works out!
