    Saw these mentioned in another thread and thought I’d start another on them.

    Anyone a collector? There are penny (one cent) machines and quarter presses too scattered about the parks and resorts.

    Our two picked up quite a few last time and they have a Tink collectors case to store them.

    The Contemporary has a whole bunch of presses just round the corner from the Contempo/Chef Mickey’s.

    Robert did the pressed pennies over a couple of trips when he was 7/8 and managed to fill his collector folder.

    If we get any new shiny cents in our change I save them for Callie to use in the presses :)

    Donna has a collection of the pressed pennies, but we don't do the pressed quarters at all.

    I was also thinking of starting this up for my guys too. I don't think we'll finish on one trip though. Seems like it would be too many places to go. We'll do it as we see them I guess.

    Do the books they sell to hold them in tell you where you can find all of them?

    I collect them. I have 3 1/2 penny books full. I only have a few quarters, but I love the penny's. I stop at everyone I see. This Disney trip I have decided to start keeping my quarters & pennies in those m&m mini tubes. I thought it would be easier to cary around.

    I have a hard time paying $1.25 for the quarters. If DD sees one that is REALLY out of the ordinary I will buy it for her. Otherwise she uses her own money.

    When my daughter was about 10 yrs old, she was really into the pressed pennies. It was a very fun thing to do, and she was so excited to press each new penny. I would recommend doing this with any kids that might be interested, makes for some great memories.

    I've got 25 pennies and 1 quarter and a couple of dime ones. All with Mickey on them. Yes, there are dime machines there too.

    Really? Never came across any of those before. :) Will have to keep an eye out next time. I've a feeling we'll be collecting a few more in Feb.

    I was getting change at one of the shops in Disneyland and the CM gave us a paper with a list of all the machines and were to find them. I wonder if they have that at WDW?

    If I remember correctly I think you can get one at Guest Services that covers all of the parks.
