Walt Disney World’s Most Affordable Collector’s Items

Walt Disney World is filled with thousands upon thousands of amazing souvenirs.  Coming home with a lot of those items is always so difficult though… It’s just so costly!  Luckily, Walt Disney World also has souvenirs for you to collect that cost less than $1!

If you haven’t taken advantage of these incredibly cheap souvenirs, this would be a great collection to start during your next vacation.  There seems to be pressed coin machines everywhere you look in WDW!  To turn your shiniest pennies or quarters into images of your favorite Disney characters, WDW attractions, or park icons, all it will cost you is $.50 cents for a pressed penny, and $1.25 for a pressed quarter.

This affordable collector’s craze was first introduced in Walt Disney World back in 1994.  Since then, pressed coin machines have sparked extraordinarily special tradition for millions of visitors.  I’ll never forget walking around WDW with my family as a little kid in search of another place to add a new pressed coin to my collection, and the great excitement that come over me whenever I’d find a machine with designs I have yet to see!

In Walt Disney World, you can find plastic books with slots to place all your coins into.  This collection won’t just be extremely affordable, it will also take up barely any room in your suitcase on the way home!

  1. I enjoy the pressed coins, too. I remember getting one done with my sister at the old arcade. I don’t remember what they called it, but I don’t think that it exists anymore, it was off of Main Street USA.
