    The things I must bring on the trip to the things I need to get! One question is do you think it's cheaper to buy an autograph book or to make one? Do you know about the penny machines? Or quarter machines?shouldibuyabook

    Hi Michael! Thanks for bringing another great question to us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I remember the first time we went to Walt Disney World Resort, I was SO EXCITED to fill up my autograph book! The official autograph books have definitely evolved since then, and the new ones (such as the Mickey Mouse and Friends Autograph and Photo Album) allow space for not only Characters' autographs, but your photos, drawings and notes about your encounters, too! With 30 pages and 15 photo sleeves, you'll surely fill this album with lots of magical memories. (The elastic loop and included ball point pen are nice features, too!)

    As for pressing pennies and quarters, my family has two full books of these wonderful, budget-friendly souvenirs. You'll find these Walt Disney World Pressed Coin Wallets at multiple locations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort including the Emporium at Magic Kingdom Park and Mouse Gear at Epcot. Simply use the Shop Disney Parks app to find a location with the item in stock. Then use the online Coin Press Machines location guide to find dozens of machines located throughout the Theme Parks, Water Parks and some Walt Disney World Resort hotels, too. You'll even find some machines that will allow you to swipe your debit or credit card to purchase themed sets of coins!

    Here's a tip: fill up an empty hard-shell candy or mint container with coins you'll want to press. That way you won't need to dig through your pockets to find change!

    I hope you enjoy your upcoming trip, Michael. Please let us know if we can answer any additional questions.
