    Can the holder for pressed Penney's be purchased in WDW?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Charlotte! My children love collecting things on our Disney vacations. Pressed pennies, trading pins, Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom Cards, they've got collections of them all!

    Besides the fact that collecting pressed pennies is a fun activity for the kids when we visit the parks at Walt Disney World, I also love that it is a very inexpensive souvenir! My kids like to pull up maps online of the different pressed penny machines at Walt Disney World. Some guests have even posted online which machines feature which characters or designs, so we search that out too. My kids map out their must-have pennies for the trip and we check them off as we go. They use the mini M&M containers that are shaped like tubes to store and stack two quarters, then one penny, two more quarters and a penny, until the tube is full. That way when we arrive at the machine, they tip out the two quarters it costs and the penny to be pressed and there is no digging around for change in our bags.

    To store and display those pressed pennies, books can be purchased throughout the Walt Disney World Resort. The Emporium at Magic Kingdom is one shop that comes to mind where I know these display books are carried. You'll also find them at other resort shops and kiosks throughout the parks, and at World Of Disney in Disney Springs. They're a great way to organize and display your collection of pennies, Charlotte. Have fun on your pressed penny search, and enjoy a magical trip!
