Five New Disney Springs Resort Area Hotel Machines
 
Sunday, April 22nd, 2018
 
 

There are seven Disney Springs Resort Area hotels that are not owned by Disney but are on Disney property. Each of these seven hotels have a Disney merchandise store that are official Disney stores. A 3-die electric machine was recently placed in the Disney store at five of these hotels. From what several Cast Members told us the other two Disney Springs Resort Area hotels should also receive new pressed penny machines. We will post another update whenever this is done.

At these five hotels there are thirteen new penny designs and two older designs that have been put back on-stage. Below is information and pictures of the machine faceplates that are at each hotel in the Disney store.

At Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista hotel there are three new designs. The designs are Stich playing a ukulele, Mickey with his arm around Pluto and Lilo with a camera taking a picture.

Tuesday, April 17th, 2018
 
 
A change has been made to the three Animal Kingdom 20th Anniversary designs that originally had two designs in one machine and one design in another machine at the Outpost Shop. The one machine that had a Stink Bug design was replaced with an Animal Kingdom 20th Anniversary design that had Kevin from the Disney•Pixar movie Up. This machine has been changed back to having the Stink Bug design. The die with Kevin that was in this machine has been moved to the Button C selection with the other two Animal Kingdom 20th Anniversary designs.

The Last 2018 Dated Coin Now On-Stage
 
Tuesday, January 23rd, 2018
 
 

The last of the fifteen 2018 coins is now on-stage at All-Star Movies Resort in the button "B" position. We were told that the die for this 2018 design was placed in the quarter machine at the Stage 1 Company Store at Hollywood Studios. Due to construction in this area the machine was behind construction walls and was not available for anybody to get this new design. The die has been swapped with the Hollywood Studios design in this quarter machine that had Mickey Mouse with a video camera at this resort. We are guessing that this old design will be back on-stage whenever the Stage 1 Company Store quarter machine is placed back on-stage since the design has the Hollywood Studios logo on it.

Last Two 2018 Coins Are Now On-Stage
 
Monday, January 8th, 2018
 
 

The last two 2018 dated coins are now on-stage at the Grand Floridian Resort and Rock Around the Shop at Hollywood Studios. For some reason what the vendor had previously posted about what designs were going to be put in those two machines have been swapped. We also posted incorrect design info for these two machines in a previous post and it has been corrected in this post.

This completes the replacement of the fifteen 2017 with new 2018 designs. Keep in mind that we have no way of verifying that the quarter machine is really behind construction walls inside the Stage One Company Store at Hollywood Studios. We have been told this by several Disney Cast Members so we believe this to be true. We first found out about these construction walls being put up the end of October 2017. At that time Disney Cast Members were saying that it would only be for a few weeks. The latest thing we have heard is that the constructions walls could be up all the way to June. Hopefully, this machine will be relocated soon and once we know that this has been done then we will post an update.

An update to what we had previously posted with the corrected locations for the last two machines is below of all fifteen 2018 dated coins.
