Does anyone know if the machines at WDW take Canadian pennies & quarters or do I have to get US ones?

Dont know about quarters but i dont think so as the us ones have copper in them and ours dont . older cdn pennies will work as the newer ones are made from a different alloy (there was a post last week about this )

check this earlier thread

The US coins do make a better pressed penny and quarter (especially the quarter). As the machines take both CDN and US coins what I did was use CDN coins to pay for the machine and US coins to be pressed. :thumbsup2

That's a great idea, I also didn't know that the machines would accept CAN quarters to pay for them. Thanks for your help.
