Damaged Jack Jack Die
 
Friday, October 13th, 2017
 
 

One of the most difficult things for us to catch is any dies that get damaged and replaced. About the only way to catch this is to roll a coin when the die is damaged and then to keep checking the machine with the damaged die until it gets replaced.

We were lucky to notice that the Jack Jack die in the machine inside Disney Traders at Epcot was damaged. We were planning on posting something whenever the die was replaced but since it's now been over three months since we noticed it we wanted to go ahead and post something about this.

Wreck-It Ralph Machines Back On-Stage
 
Saturday, September 30th, 2017
 
 

Both of the Wreck-It Ralph machines that were removed due to Disney Quest closing July 3 have been placed back on-stage in Pixel Play Arcade at the Art of Animation Resort.

These two machines have probably been moved more then any other Disney World machine. These machines were placed on-stage November 2, 2012 at Pizza Planet at Hollywood Studios. A few months later the machines were moved to the Prop Shop and then moved again in December 2013 to The Magic of Disney Animation. In November 2014 both machines were moved from Hollywood Studios to inside Disney Quest at Downtown Disney. The machines were moved again to the Disney Quest lobby in January of this year only to be moved to the Disney Quest Emporium in April where they remained until Disney Quest closed the beginning of July. Now the machines are in the Pixel Play Arcade at Disney's Art of Animation Resort. These are all the moves that we saw so there could have been a few more moves that we didn't catch. Hopefully, both of these two machines have found a permanent home where they can remain.

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.
