Are you a collector of pressed pennies? If you are or you are thinking about souvenir pennies at Walt Disney World they seem to be rolling out new machines. Also, it may be no surprise but they have gone up in price. Pressed pennies are now $1 instead of the previous 51¢.
We found these new machines at Disney’s Magic Kingdom in Liberty Square. The new machines have a credit card slot and will only accept bills, no more loose change. The days of carrying around loose change are done. The new machines will now provide your penny.
So far the Disney souvenir pressed pennies seem to be the same. They are just supplied by the machine. You also have the option of buying all the pennies from a single machine at one time but there wasn’t a price decrease for doing so.
Even with the increase, the souvenir pressed pennies are still one of the least expensive souvenir options at Disney. I do like the convince of not having to carry a bag of loose change around.
Do you think this ruins the experience of the pressed souvenir penny?
