The 3-die penny machine conversions have already begun at Epcot and at the pace the conversions are being done it wouldn't surprise us if all these machines will be converted by next week.

Once the 3-die penny machines are converted at Epcot then this will complete the conversion of all the three and four die penny machines at all the Walt Disney World parks and Disney Springs. You will no longer be able to use your own penny to press since all the machines will be preloaded with zinc pennies that will cost $1.00 for each design. There is a discount if you get a complete set from the 8-die machines at a cost of $5 or a 12-die machine at a cost of $10.


 Animal Kingdom 3-Die Penny Machine Conversion
 
Friday, January 15th, 2021

The conversion of all the 3-Die penny machines at Animal Kingdom to $1.00 preloaded zinc penny machines has begun and is rapidly progressing.

Since January 4 when the machines at this park were last checked there have already been four machines converted and most of the other 3-die penny machines have been removed. The machines at Serka Zong Bazaar and Ziwani Traders had not been converted and were still available to press using your own penny and two quarters.

The penny machine at Chester and Hester's Dinosaur Treasures that has a 2021 penny was one of the machines that had been converted. The other machines that have been converted were at Dawa Bar, Curiosity Animal Tours and Restaurantosaurus. The machine at Restaurantosaurus on the front porch of this restaurant had been off-stage since last year but was back on-stage and had been converted.

The machines we saw that were missing were at Island Mercantile that had a 2021 penny, both of the machines at Discovery Trading Company and the machine inside of Restaurantosaurus.

The 3-die quarter machine at Harambe Railway Station was also still available.
