The Studio Store Machine Change
 
Wednesday, January 22nd, 2020
 
 

The Mickey's 90th Birthday design that has Minnie & Mickey celebrating with the words "World's Biggest Mouse Party that was in the machine at The Studio Store at Hollywood Studios has been replaced with an older retired die. The 3-die penny machine at this location now has the 5 of 6 design from the Formal Mickey series for the button "A" selection. This design has Mickey Mouse in a tuxedo facing right with his arms outstretched. The design was previously in a machine at Goombay Games Arcade at Caribbean Beach Resort but all the machines at that location were removed when a major resort refurbishment began May 1, 2017.

Tuesday, January 21st, 2020
 
 

There were a few 2019 anniversary and Mickey's 90th Birthday designs that were not removed when sixteen of those dies were replaced with new 2020 designs. At Magic Kingdom the 2019 penny design at the Emporium is still there as of January 21, 2020. The 2019 quarter at the Emporium has been replaced with the die that has Merida and three bear cubs from the movie Brave that was recently removed from the quarter machine that was at Living with the Land near the Garden Grill Restaurant at Epcot.

Thursday, January 16th, 2020
 
 

The 8-die Star Wars machine that was located at Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. at Magic Kingdom was removed last year in August. This machine is now back on-stage at Pin Traders at Disney Springs. This brings the total machines at this location to six machines with a total of 28 coins. Two of the machines are 8-die machines with one having Marvel characters and this machine that was placed back on-stage with eight Star Wars designs.

 
     
 
Resort 4-Die Machines Removed
 
Saturday, January 11th, 2020
 
 

All the 4-die hand crank machines at the four Disney theme parks have been converted to $1.00 preloaded zinc penny machines. The 4-die machines at both Rainforest Cafes and T-Rex Cafe that are owned by Landry's have also been converted.

There are only two 4-die machines at the Disney resorts. One is at Port Orleans French Quarter Sassagoula Floatworks & Food Factory and the other machine is located at the Boardwalk Resort on the Boardwalk Promenade. Both of these machines have been removed to be converted.

This leaves only six 4-die machines at Disney Springs that need to be converted or possibly removed or replaced.

 
     
 
Epcot Machines Update
 
Sunday, January 5th, 2020
 
 

The Character Connection is now closed and the Big Hero Six machine at that location is no longer available.

The machine at ImageWorks has been removed and there are now two photo booths where this machine used to be located.

Mouse Gears is officially closed as of today and has been moved to a temporary location where Colortopia used to be located at which is behind the Electric Umbrella. The temporary store is a third the size of what Mouse Gears used to be. None of the pressed coin machines that were at Mouse Gears are at this temporary location. This includes the penny machine with the new 2020 design that we reported being on-stage a few days ago. At this time we do not know what will be done with the machines that were at Mouse Gears but hopefully they will show up at this temporary location or placed back on-stage at some other location.
