 All 4-Die Hollywood Studios Machines Are Back
 
Friday, December 20th, 2019

Earlier today we posted that we had updated our database and listings. In our blog post we mentioned that the 4-die penny machines at Hollywood Studios were in the process of being converted to $1.00 preloaded zinc penny machines. There were still a few machines that had not been converted and were still off-stage.

From reports we have been receiving today it appears that the rest of the 4-die machines have been converted and are now back on-stage at Hollywood Studios. This will complete the conversion of all of the 4-die machines located in the parks.

As was previously mentioned this leaves the remaining 4-die machines at Disney Springs and the two machines located at two of the resorts that still need to be removed and converted.


 Database, Listings and Checklists Updated Today
 
Friday, December 20th, 2019

Our database and all of our listings and checklists were updated today. Since our last listings there have been several things that have happened to the pressed coin machines at Disney World. All new machines have all been 8-die machines and some of these machines replaced older 3-die penny and quarter machines. All of the 4-die machines at Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Landry Restaurants and most of Hollywood Studios have been converted to $1.00 preloaded zinc penny machines.

Five 4-die machines at Hollywood Studios are currently off-stage but most likely will be returned converted like all the other 4-die machines. Once these machines are converted then there are only eight 4-die machines remaining to be converted, replaced or removed. Six of these machines are at Disney Springs and the other two are at the Boardwalk Promenade and Port Orleans French Quarters food court.

Previously at this same location was a cabinet containing a 3-die quarter machine, a coin changer and a 4-die penny machine. This cabinet and all machines were removed a few weeks ago. The 4-die penny machine has been converted to a $1.00 preloaded zinc penny machine inside of a new single cabinet. This completes the conversion of all the Epcot 4-die penny machines to a $1.00 preloaded zinc penny machine from of a machine where you were able to insert your own penny at a cost of $0.50.

The coin changer is no longer available at this location and the 3-die pressed quarter machine is now retired.


 Landry Restaurant Machines Converted Or Removed
 
Saturday, September 28th, 2019
All of the Landry Restaurant penny machines have been converted to $1.00 preloaded zinc penny machines except for one penny machine at the Rainforest Cafe at Animal Kingdom and one penny machine at Disney Springs. These two 4-die penny machines that have been removed are now considered to be retired.

At Animal Kingdom the penny machine inside the Yak & Yeti restaurant and two of the Rainforest Cafe penny machines are all now $1.00 preloaded zinc penny machines. At the Rainforest Cafe the machine that has been removed which we are considering to be retired is the machine that had designs with two hot air balloons, a mockingbird, crab wearing sunglasses and an alligator. The other two 4-die penny machines at the Rainforest Cafe now provides and presses a zinc penny and costs $1.00 to press each penny. The pressed quarter machine at this location remains unchanged and still costs $1.25 including your quarter that you press.

At Disney Springs both of the 4-die penny machines inside the T-Rex restaurant have been converted to $1.00 preloaded zinc penny machines. Inside the Rainforest Cafe at Disney Springs two of the 4-die penny machines have been converted and one penny machine has been removed which we will be marking as retired. The penny machine that was removed has designs with My Lucky Ball Mark, crab wearing sunglasses, orange blossom and butterfly.

 Machine Moves and Changes
 
Monday, August 5th, 2019

At Animal Kingdom the 3-die machine that was originally located inside the Conservation Station at Rafiki's Planet Watch and moved to Mombasa Marketplace due to refurbishment at Rafiki's Planet Watch is back on-stage. This machine was temporarily moved to Mombasa Marketplace but was removed in May of this year. It is now located to the left of the doors as you enter the Conservation Station beside the Dog Tag ID machine.

The 3-die penny machine outside of Island Mercantile at Animal Kingdom has been moved inside the store by the doors nearest to Pandora. The 3-die quarter machine that was removed from this location a few months ago is still off-stage.

The 4-die machine with Disney•Pixar Cars movie designs that was in the Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Courtyard at Hollywood Studios has a new faceplate and the machine has been moved outside of Lightning McQueen Racing Academy.

Most of the machine changes have occurred at Epcot as the 4-die penny machines that cost $0.50 plus your own penny that you want to press are being converted to one dollar preloaded zinc penny machines. The first batch of 4-die hand crank machines that were removed several weeks ago are now all back and are converted to one dollar machines. These machines are Sunshine Seasons at The Land, African Outpost, both of the 4-die China machines that are located in the courtyard and one of the 4-die machines in the Japan World Showcase courtyard. The next batch of 4-die machines have been removed to be converted to one dollar preloaded zinc penny machines and they are the other Japan courtyard machine that wasn't converted in the first batch and both machines at Pin Traders.

One thing to note with the one dollar preloaded zinc penny machines is that at Magic Kingdom you can only use a credit card if you want all four designs from a machine. At Epcot you can use a credit card for each coin that you want to get. As we have mentioned before from our own experience is that credit card issuers usually have a problem if there are multiple transactions from the same place on the same day.

The four die hand crank machines at Disney World are also not the only machines that we have seen that are being converted at other amusement parks and locations that cost $0.50 plus the penny that you want to press to one dollar preloaded zinc machines. Disney World is the only place that we have seen that accept both one dollar bills and have a credit card reader for using a credit card.


 Epcot 4-Die Machine Removals
 
Wednesday, July 17th, 2019

Several of the 4-die machines at Epcot have been recently removed. We are assuming that the rest of the nine 4-die machines at Epcot will be removed and all of them will be converted and returned as one dollar preloaded zinc penny machines. So far five machines have been removed and four of the machines are still on-stage.

The 4-die machine located at The Land Food Court is the only one in Future World that has been removed. The two machines at Pin Central in Future World and the penny machine at the Living Seas were still on-stage when we checked. In the World Showcase the machine located at the African Outpost and both of the 4-die machines in the China Pavilion have been removed. In the Japan Pavilion one machine has been removed and one machine was still on-stage.


 New Disney Pixar Inside Out 8-Die Machine
 
Friday, June 21st, 2019

A new 8-Die machine with Disney Pixar Inside Out designs is now on-stage inside Mouse Gears at EPCOT. This new machine replaces one of the 3-die machines that was at this location. The Mickey holding a passport, Spaceship Earth with Epcot sign and Kristoff from Disney's Frozen movie that were in this 3-die machine that was removed are now considered to be retired.

All 8 new designs have the Disney Pixar Inside Out logo on them with one or more characters from the Inside Out movie. The designs are Joy, Sadness, Anger, Disgust, Fear, Bing Bong, Joy & Sadness and a design with multiple characters.

 Magic Kingdom Hand Crank Machines Conversion
 
Thursday, June 20th, 2019

All of the 4-die hand crank machines that were recently removed from Magic Kingdom are all back and have been converted to preloaded zinc penny machines that now cost $1.00 per coin.

The hand crank dime machine that was located at Tomorrowland Light & Power Company has been converted to a $1.00 penny machine. The die ring was not changed and only the pressure on the machine was adjusted to press properly on zinc pennies instead of dimes.
