Does anyone else collect pressed pennies at the parks? What is this and why didn't I know about it sooner? I just started collecting on my last visit and I'll get some more while i'm out here today. A cast member saw how excited I was and gave me a printed checklist of all the types. There are TONS of penny machines scattered throughout both parks and downtown Disney. I love cheap, random in-park hobbies. haha
I do!!!! I even have a tinker bell book for them my friend got me! - SnoWiZzLe   11.7 #11228 4-17-11 1:30PM Like  Reply
I do ... (I thought I was the only one who collected these...) I must always stop to do a few where ever I go, but my faves are all from Disneyland! - Tinkerbabe   49.2 #5227 4-17-11 1:34PM Like  Reply
I really want a bolt and nemo one but whenever I try to get one the machine is broken and eats my money! Next time! - Madi   204.1 #2112 4-17-11 1:36PM Like  Reply
My husband would rather find the pressed penny machines than ride rides. About five years ago he got the list from city hall and things have never been the same since than! - Boo-Gus   131.7 #3204 4-17-11 1:47PM Like  Reply

My daughter collects them. It's a much cheaper thing than buying a balloon or a pin every time we visit:). It's kind of a fun hunt every visit. Was so thrilled when they came out with the penny holder books. - MoonWillow   396.2 #662 4-17-11 8:31PM Like  Reply
