Pressed penny books

Has anyone seen these in the parks lately? We loved collecting these on our last trip! Can you buy rolls of pennies in the parks? Canadian pennies don't work as well.

We love Pressed Pennies too. I would say there is a pretty good chance they sell those in most stores, especially stores with a penny machine nearby.

We purchased one for our youngest son in the Briar Patch gift shop(at the end of Critter Country) two weeks ago. If you have never been to it, be sure to go to the back of the store and try a piece of fudge(maple is my favorite). I would guess that most of the gift shops should have the Pressed Penny Books. If the first one you go to does not have one, just ask the CM to find out which store nearby does have one. Most of the time the DL CMs are more than happy to help...

The pennies are never my problem. It's the quarters. I buy a roll of quarters at the airport from a convenience store. I'm sure they will have pennies as well.

A good tip is to bring with you a miniature M&M container like this:



And place coins in a Quarter-Quarter-Penny order inside that container, so you have easy access to 51 cents.

My children love pressing pennies! Their Disneyland books (they keep their Disney pennies in different books) were bought in one of the big shops right on Main Street. I didn't look to see if you could buy rolls of pennies in Disneyland, but I think there may have been a change machine in the Penny Arcade or whatever that place is called--there are a lot of penny machines in there. At any rate, we brought our pennies and quarters with us to DL in M&M tubes.

edited to add: You can also press quarters at Disneyland. I did not come prepared for that, so my children only did one each on our last trip. It is just as well because that gets expensive very quickly!

And, you get to eat M&Ms. How can you lose.

What's the difference with Canadian pennies? As an American, I'd been hoping to use up some misc Canadian pennies I have when I'm at DL - but if they don't turn out well, I'll stick with US currency.
