2020 Spaceship Earth Design Back On-Stage
 
Thursday, August 6th, 2020
 
 
We have received a report that the 2020 Spaceship Earth design that was only available for a few days at Mouse Gears before being closed in January and moved to a temporary location is now back on-stage. This design is now available in the 3-die machine at The Puffin's Roost in the Norway Pavilion at Epcot. This 2020 design replaces the Mickey holding flags design in the button "C" position in this machine.
 
     
 
Database, Listings and Checklists Updated Today
 
Monday, August 3rd, 2020
 
 

Our database and all of our listings and checklists were updated today. Due to Covid-19 we have left the designs for locations that are still closed. It appears as things slowly reopened at Disney World that most of the machines were basically as they were when everything closed March 15, 2020. There were a few machine removals and five new 8-die machines replacing older 3-die machines since our last listings were posted February 2020.

 
     
 
New 8-Die Mission Space Machine
 
Thursday, July 30th, 2020
 
 
Another new 8-die machine is on-stage at Epcot and it is located at Mission Space. This new machine is located inside the Mission Space Cargo Bay gift shop and replaces the 8-die Star Wars machine that was at this location. The Star Wars machine was at Mouse Gears and it replaced the 3-die Mission Space machine in January 2020 when Mouse Gears was closed for refurbishment. We will be updating our database that this 8-die Star Wars machine is now retired.

New Country Bear Jamboree Machine
 
Tuesday, July 14th, 2020
 
 

Usually it takes several months for a new machine to be decided upon and to be placed on-stage. It appears that with the closure of Walt Disney World for almost four months that all the machines that were in the process of being made are now on-stage for the reopening of Disney World.

In addition to the two new 8-die machines at the Emporium there is also a new 8-die machine that replaces the 3-die machine at the Country Bear Jamboree. All eight of the new designs are vertical designs with various Country Bear characters. At the top of each design are the words "COUNTRY BEAR JAMBOREE". The names of all the Country Bear characters are also on each of the eight designs.

These new designs have Brother Ted, Cousin Zeb, Henry & Sammy, Wendell, Liver Lips, Big All, Teddy Barra and Terrence.

Magic Kingdom Machine Change
 
Thursday, July 9th, 2020
 
 

Disney Springs and some of the Disney World Resorts have already opened to guests after being closed for almost 4 months due to Covid-19. So far from what we have seen most of the pressed coin machines are still available at the same locations assuming that the various locations are open.

In addition to the two new 8-die machines at Magic Kingdom Emporium replacing the two penny and one quarter machines inside this gift shop another machine has been removed at Magic Kingdom which we are assuming is retired. Disney has announced that Splash Mountain that was based on the 1946 movie the Song of the South is going to be changed to a Princess and the Frog theme.

The 3-die penny machine with the characters Brer Vulture, Brer Rabbit and Brer Bear from the Song of the South movie that was located under the Frontierland Railroad Station has already been removed. The 3-die machine located at Splashdown Photos Preview Area and the 8-die machine located in the Splashdown Photos gift shop were still available but we are assuming that these machines will either be changed or removed in the future since they also have designs based on Disney's Song of the South movie.

Thursday, July 9th, 2020
 
 

After being closed for almost 4 months due to Covid-19 the Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom parks are preparing to open to guests July 11 and Epcot and Hollywood Studios will be opening July 15. Two new 8-die machines were installed inside the Magic Kingdom Emporium doing this closure. These two new machines have replaced the two penny and one quarter 3-die machines at this location and are in the same locations as the previous machines.

4-Die Machine Conversions Have Ended
 
Tuesday, March 3rd, 2020
 
 

All of the 4-die machines at Walt Disney World have now been converted to a preloaded zinc penny machine that now cost $1.00 for each design. The Food Truck machine at Disney Springs was the last machine to be converted and it has been placed back on-stage.

The conversion of all the 4-die machines to $1.00 preloaded zinc penny machines began April 2019 with the removal of the Tomorrowland Speedway machine and has ended with the Food Truck machine. During this conversion some 4-die machines were not converted and were retired. There were also a few new 4-die machines placed on-stage. Currently, there are forty-five $1.00 preloaded zinc penny machines at Walt Disney World that would cost a total of $180 to get all of the designs. Keep in mind that one of these machines that was at Pin Central at Epcot is currently off-stage due to the construction at this park.

 
     
 
Database, Listings and Checklists Updated Today
 
Monday, February 10th, 2020
 
 

Our database and all of our listings and checklists were updated today. Since our last listings all of the 2019 dated coins and Mickey's 90th Birthday designs have been removed and replaced.

Another change that has been completed is that there are no longer any 4-die machines that are still on-stage at Walt Disney World that still cost $0.50 plus your penny that you want to press. The last of the 4-die machines not converted have been removed and some of them have returned as converted $1.00 preloaded zinc penny machines. The most recent 4-die machines that were removed and have not been put back on-stage have a note on our listings that the machine is currently off-stage.
