AdventureGrowing up, one of my favorite memories and souvenirs to take home was a pressed penny.

To this day, I still make a point to get a new one every year I go to Walt Disney World® to commemorate the trip.

The great part about a pressed penny is that they only cost 51 cents.

When traveling throughout the parks, resorts and Downtown Disney®, guests have over 500 different pressed pennies they can choose from.

The machines only take two quarters and one penny, which will then be pressed into the design of your choice. As a young boy (and still today), I was mesmerized to see my souvenir being made right in front of my eyes.

This is a great souvenir to bring home and collect while saving money.

How many of you have gotten a pressed penny from Walt Disney World®? Which design is your favorite? Comment below!

    My daughter started collecting the pennies as soon as we spied the machines tucked away in the parks. Each time we go she brings a list of all the ones she already has and we hunt for new ones for her collection. She’s 35 now and I’m sure that list is coming with her when we go to WDW this October.
