Innoventions West Machine Removed
Tuesday, February 7th, 2017

Both of the Innoventions buildings at EPCOT are basically closed. The Innoventions East building still has a pressed penny machine near the entrance door that leads to Colortopia which is the only attraction in this building. This entrance door is on the Test Track side and across from Mouse Gear. The machine is located to the left as you enter the doors.

The only thing at Innoventions West is the Baymax character meet and greet. The rest of the areas inside the building have been blocked off. The 4-die hand crank pressed penny machine that was at this location is no longer there.

Pioneer Hall Machine Retired
Tuesday, February 7th, 2017

Several weeks ago we noticed that the 4-die machine on the walkway close to Pioneer Hall at Ft. Wilderness Campground had been removed. Most of the time when this happens the machine is just out for refurbishment. We usually don't put anything on our website when we think a machine is out for refurbishment since it's usually not gone very long.

After doing a little more research we noticed something very interesting with how the new Disney Springs machine that we recently reported looked just like the Pioneer Hall machine that was removed.

It is our opinion that the machine at Pioneer Hall was removed for refurbishment. However, instead of the machine just being repainted, refurbished and returned the dies and faceplates were also replaced and the machine was moved to a different location. Assuming that this is what was done then the four designs in the Pioneer Hall machine are now retired. Our next update will show the Pioneer Hall machine as being removed and the four designs in this machine as retired.

A Machine Is Back At Island Supply
Wednesday, January 25th, 2017

About a month ago a cabinet with two machines and a coin changer was removed from the Verandah Breezeway outside Island Supply at Magic Kingdom. At this same location a new cabinet with one of the machines and the coin changer has been put back on-stage.

The machine that is now back on-stage had a 2016 design in the button "A" position. This design has been replaced with a design with Grumpy that was removed from the button "C" position at Sir Mickey's in June 2014. The other two designs that were in this machine with Olaf and Jungle Cruise are still the same designs.

The changer that was in the dual machine cabinet was different then most coin changers since it dispensed two pennies for every dollar. The coin changer in this new cabinet still dispenses two shinny new pennies for every dollar.

Wreck-It Ralph Machines Moved
Sunday, January 15th, 2017

The two Wreck-It Ralph machines inside Disney Quest at Disney Springs have been moved. These machines in the past were difficult to get to because you needed a ticket since the machines were located inside of Disney Quest. Both Wreck-It Ralph Machines have been moved to the lobby of Disney Quest which will allow getting any of these six designs without having a ticket. The machines are now located to the right as you enter the Disney Quest lobby.

New Disney Springs Machine
Sunday, January 15th, 2017

A new 4-die hand crank machine has been put on-stage at Disney Springs. This machine is located behind the seating on the right side of Waterside Stage which is near the World of Disney Store. The new designs are Lilo & Stitch, Mickey & Pluto, Winnie the Pooh characters and Donald with Mickey ears. All four designs are vertical designs with the Disney Springs logo at the top.

Today we went to the parks and discovered that not all of the new 2017 coins were available. Of the fifteen coins for this year that we posted about only eight of them were available to get today. Also, all six of the pressed coin machines and the quarter change machine at the Contemporary Resort had been removed from the location that they have been at for many years. They all have been moved together inside The Game Station arcade located on the fourth floor.

Below are the eight new 2017 designs that were available as of January 1. We will post something once we have verified that the other seven new 2017 coins are available.

Verandah Breezeway Machines Removed
Sunday, January 1st, 2017
Both machines in the Verandah Breezeway outside Island Supply at Magic Kingdom have been removed. These machines were in a dual cabinet that had a coin changer in between the machines that also dispensed two zinc pennies along with four quarters for every dollar that was inserted. We do not know at this time if the machines have been permanently removed or if they are out for refurbishment.
