Stage 1 Company Store Quarter Machine Back On-Stage
 
Friday, November 9th, 2018
 
 

The Stage 1 Company Store quarter machine at Hollywood Studios that was removed the end of October last year due to the refurbishment of this store is back on-stage. This machine had a 2017 quarter design in it before being removed and Penny Collector showed that it was supposed to get a new 2018 design at the beginning of this year. Since this machine was no longer available the 2018 design that was supposed to go into this machine was placed in the quarter machine at All-Star Movies replacing a design with Mickey holding a movie camera. What was interesting with this design was that when this design was first placed on-stage July 2013 at the All-Star Movies resort it had the Disney's Hollywood Studios logo at the top of the design which we thought was a little strange since it seemed like this design should have been at Hollywood Studios. Also, the faceplate / header showing what this design looked like showed a dot border and there is no dot border.

Now that this machine is back on-stage it has the Mickey holding a movie camera die in it for the button "A" position and the other two quarter designs with Minnie and Belle are the same before the machine was placed off-stage. The faceplate for this machine also shows a dot border for all three designs and none of them have a dot border. I guess that shouldn't be a surprise since the previous faceplate for the Minnie and Belle designs also incorrectly showed a dot border.

As expected there was a re-opening of the World of Disney store ceremony this morning and the black hanging scrims had been removed revealing the third 8-die penny machine at this Disney Spring store. This machine is located in the back corner in the same location where a previous 4-die machine had been located. A picture of the machine and location is below along with the image of the coin designs that was taken from the screen display.

Third New World of Disney 8-Die Machine
 
Wednesday, October 24th, 2018
 
 

The artwork for a third 8-die World of Disney machine has been posted on Pennycollector.com. This machine is showing that it contains Winnie the Pooh designs. The World of Disney store currently has a section under refurbishment and according to Disney will not be available to guests until this Saturday, October 27. From what we have been told this new third machine is behind the large black scrims that are currently hanging in the store. If our information is correct, and assuming that Disney doesn't remove the black scrims early, then these eight new designs will not be available to get until this Saturday.

The artwork is currently on Penny Collector's website with what the designs are and what the machine looks like. We will post a faceplate picture as soon as we can which will probably be this Saturday.
