Marketplace Fun Finds Machine and Store Update
Tuesday, August 15th, 2017

The Marketplace Fun Finds store at Disney Springs that was recently closed for refurbishment and changed to sell Star Wars Merchandise has a new name. The new name for this store is Star Wars Trading Post. The 4-die machine that was inside this store has been removed and there is now a Star Wars themed dog tag ID machine where the pressed penny machine was located at. We anticipate that the machine that was at this location will eventually find a new home and we will give an update if this happens. The 4-die machine that was on the outside of the store is still there and available to use.

Tower Hotel Gifts Quarter Machine Back On-Stage
Tuesday, August 15th, 2017

The 3-die quarter machine that was removed from Tower Hotel Gifts at Hollywood Studios is back on-stage. The cabinet has been refurbished to match the cabinet of the new 8-die machine that was recently installed in this store. This quarter machine was put back right by the new 8-die machine.

The quarter change machine that was in the same area is still there but it has been moved beside the dog tag ID machine. Unfortunately, this change machine seems to have a few problems because it is supposed to accept $10 bills but they usually don't work. Even when using $5 bills the machine may or may not accept the bill. Hopefully, this change machine will get fixed in the near future.

Database And Listings Updated Today
Thursday, August 3rd, 2017

We have updated our database and all of our listings today. In a little over three months there have been 43 new coins added and 20 coins removed.

Fourteen of the coins that were removed were due to the closing of Disney Quest at Disney Springs. There is the possibility of the six Wreck-It Ralph designs being put back on-stage in a new home but that has not happened yet.

The large number of new coins was due to five 8-die machines being put on-stage. There were only three new designs put in the old style 3-die electric machines and they were all at PizzeRizzo at Hollywood Studios.

The past three months has been very busy along with machines and dies being moved and put back on-stage. Our website has been updated with all of these changes.
