    I was having a sort through some old boxes of bits and pieces that I've collected over the years and I found an envelope full of pressed pennies. I don't even remember when I did this I'm assuming it would have been on our first or second trip as the napkins are actually for WDW not for Disney Parks

    Has anyone else collected the pressed pennies and what did you do with them?

    Are the pressed penny machines still there?









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......

    We have a random few from years, and years ago. Not sure if they are still there. I've not looked for any in ages. I know there were some pressed quarter machines too.

    There were books you could buy to keep them in. One of those ideas that sounded nice but never really took off with us.

    I have a bunch too. I haven't collected any in a while though. They're just fun to have and look at. I have one of the books too.

    They are EVERWHERE! We gave the kids bags of coins last October and let them go crazy with the pennies They loved looking for "people they knew" on the pennies and that is how they would pick. We had breakfast at Chef Mickey's and I know near the elevators they had a few pressed quarter machines I think just about every major ride, store, and resort has pressed pennies
