I know that Italy and Canada have them for sure in the gift shops, I haven't noticed if every country has them. I think you can pick up the pressed penny book in the Showcase Plaza gift shop, that is where I got the Passport for my son.

Reason: Added list.
I think every country represented in WS has a penny press except China if I remember right. But we haven't collected pennies in WS in a while since my kids have them from there. And we bought the booklet for the pennies in a gift shop but I don't remember which one. It may have been the Showcase Plaza. It's been too many years ago.
There are penny presses all over WDW. And we still buy some. Mostly from areas or rides where we don't have any. We still use the same booklet we bought in 2003 although I think it's getting full.

I agree about the Kitcot statement - I always see plenty of kids at these stations having a great time, and without huge lines. To me these seem to be somehow 'under promoted' so be sure to check them out.
I also agree with the comments about reading the online bulletin boards like this one. A book is good too (and there are a bazillion of them), but you can get fast answers to your specific questions here - for free
Thank you so much everybody! Keep the tips coming. I'm taking notes.
Park Hopper Dad, thanks especially to you. Your detailed description of approaching the park is VERY HELPFUL!
make sure you do some of the little things, like go into the Moroccan pavillon, check out the viking and chinese exibits, notice the grass growing the roof in Norway, etc etc
