Database And Listings Updated
 
Thursday, May 23rd, 2024
 
 

We have updated our listing and checklists. Since January 2024 there has been very little activity with the pressed penny machines at Walt Disney World. There has been six new designs and nine designs put back on-stage.

The 4-die Hollywood Junction machine at Hollywood Studios was changed with four new 35th Hollywood Studios Anniversary designs. Two of the machines at Discovery Trading Company at Animal Kingdom had the 25th Animal Kingdom Anniversary designs removed and replaced with new designs. The third machine at Discovery Trading Company was removed which we believe will eventually be returned. Both of the Disney Character Warehouse stores and the Disney Store on International Drive in Orlando had 3-die machines put in their stores with recently retired designs.

Thirty-five years ago on May 1, 1989, Disney-MGM Studios opened at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. The park underwent a name change January 7, 2008, becoming Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

In celebration of the 35th anniversary of this park four new pressed pennies have been put on-stage inside Hollywood Studios at the Hollywood Junction location. This is the same location where the 50th Anniversary of Disney World and the 100 Years of Wonder Celebration coins were located at.

Disney Character Warehouse Machines
 
Tuesday, April 23rd, 2024
 
 

Both of the Disney Character Warehouse stores in Orlando now have a 3-die penny and medallion machine. The two penny machines have designs that were previously on-stage. The two medallion machines have designs from the 100 Years of Wonder Celebration at half the cost of what they were when they were available inside Walt Disney World last year.

Three of the penny designs that are back on stage are the designs that were in a machine near the restrooms at Splash Mountain at Magic Kingdom. The other designs were designs from two Disney Stores located inside non-Disney resorts located on Hotel Plaza Boulevard near Disney Springs. One design with Olaf was previously at Disney's Pin Traders at Disney Springs Marketplace.

Below are pictures of the coins that are available at these two Disney Character Warehouse stores. The first image in each set is from the Character Warehouse at Orlando Vineland Premium Outlets on Vineland Avenue. The second set of coins in each image are the coins that are available at Orlando International Premium Outlets on International Drive.
