2. How it works
When you do find a pressed penny machine, take note that you will need two quarters and a penny to actually obtain one. Nickels and dimes can’t be entered into these machines and you have to pay with exact change. You can usually get the appropriate change in any of the park’s gift shops if you need to. To obtain a pressed penny simply enter your quarters and penny into the appropriate slots and choose the design you want. Each design represents Disney World in some way and they all cost only 51 cents each. You then get to turn the machine’s crank until it spits your pressed penny out at the bottom. Viola, you have a unique souvenir that won’t sit at home and collect dust.
