The tiny treasure that everyone loves - pressed pennies! Now, in honor of Walt Disney World's 50th Anniversary, you can purchase specially themed coins along with medallions and tags.
Each coin can depict one of the characters in the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection or a Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary design and are available throughout the 18-month celebration.
“Our guests love to have unique and special takeaways, so these pennies are perfect for the celebration,” said Bob Opificius, Manager, Operations Experience Integration and one of the masterminds behind these collections. “Coin pressed pennies, medallions and tags are great for everyone from die-hard collectors to guests just having fun, bouncing around the Disney area collecting souvenirs.”
