#Tip: I've seen several posts about starting a pressed penny collection, and I thought I would offer a little friendly advice since I have some photo examples. First, choose only pre-1982 pennies. These are made of copper and when pressed, will not have other "silver" metals show through. The examples below are my own. The ones on the left were gathered at WDW last week, made from "good" pennies. The Wreck it Ralph example on the right was made on the fly with a new penny. As you can see, it's already looking pretty sad. I hear a lot of people say they use new pennies because they are shiny, don't do it. To get the old pennies shiny, I simply squirt them with ketchup, let it sit for maybe 10 minutes, then scrub with a toothbrush. Rinse them off and then buff with a paste of baking soda and water. It takes a few minutes of elbow grease, but don't they look nice?! Stop in at City Hall for a list of machines/pennies and consider buying a penny folder for storing your goodies, runs about $7.

Thanks! Great tip! I love them shiny...but the wreck it Ralph is kinda purdy too (just not with the shiny guys!) - TinkerSchelle  1683.2 #91 3:37PM
Agreed :) - eviljules  1196.1 #131 3:38PM
Great info thanks for posting! - Admin 5:09PM
Thanks, that is good to know. My friend does the pennies. - 33Wonderland  65.1 #4110 5:22PM
I have noticed that as well. With taking my daughter next week for 3 days, we will be spending some time on pressing pennies. I need to get the list so I can see what I have already. We need a new book too. - LuvsTigger  1464.5 #103 1:42PM
This was a great post. Thank you for all of the info. It was very helpful. I'm thinking about starting this collection. - DisneyGrandma  861.8 #197 1:47PM
This is awesome tips! Thanks for sharing! Your collection looks good! - MaliceInWonderland  37.0 #5089 1:51PM
Those are great tips!! I was wondering why the ones my daughter got looked so much worse than I remembered them. Thanks!! - MissMolly  1309.5 #115 1:53PM
I probably made about 20 of them before I realized why they were funky-looking! 😁 - bluefairy  643.3 #289 2:08PM
Great info! Thanks. - BRabbit  581.0 #327 1:54PM
Awesome advice! - MeridaFan  3549.7 #36 1:54PM
Great info, it's the vinegar in the ketchup so you can just use vinegar as well πŸ˜€ - ShariRenee  6203.3 #14 2:10PM
The ketchup "sticks" to the pennies better, IMO. - bluefairy  643.3 #289 2:12PM
Thanks for your great advise! I was one of those who use new pennies. - RapunzalK  196.6 #1958 2:11PM
Thank you! - loved26LovesDLand  189.7 #2042 2:12PM
Awesome advice! I did my Ralph pennies and did notice a few silver spots! - Willierose  2186.7 #62 2:13PM
Than for this great info! - NellTinkerBell  322.8 #731 2:25PM
Thank you for sharing the great advice, now I'll have to go back and redo some from my collection :) - ribidib  1177.9 #133 2:31PM
Thanks for the tips! I want to start collecting them this year. Do they still sell the booklets for storing them? I have never seen them. 😊 - Miss_E_Mouse  1424.9 #106 2:31PM
Yep. Emporium, and most shops that have penny machines have them. They're $8.95 before passholder discount. - JustCantWait  1140.4 #142 3:03PM
πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚omg dying!!! - toph  2416.6 #50 2:34PM
πŸ˜œπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ watch it, Toph, or you will be getting a sock full of pennies for Christmas! - bluefairy  643.3 #289 4:02PM
She likes mustard on her pennies. - Tom  8988.6 #4 4:05PM
Thanks for this! I hate that silver thing, but didn't know what the solution was until I saw this post. - JustCantWait  1140.4 #142 3:03PM
You can also soak them in vinegar to make them shiny. - MeridasHair  346.5 #635 3:09PM
I've actually tried this, and other methods, and sometimes the vinegar turns them black, I'm not sure why. - bluefairy  643.3 #289 5:08PM
Thank you for the helpful info! - QueenMiranda  400.7 #522 3:12PM
Excellent advice! - Gia  802.0 #209 3:17PM

Very nice tips, I heard this but never seen how different until your comparison! Major difference. - MarshaMouse  4429.1 #23 3:35PM

Great tip. Thank you. - Eraf61  264.8 #1143 3:43PM
Thanks for the tips. Love my pressed coins! Any idea what happened to the pressed coins by IASW? - kueenofhearts  279.2 #994 4:46PM
There were some in the old fantasy faire shop, I'm not sure which ones you are referring to. - bluefairy  643.3 #289 6:31PM
Thanks!!! - waltfan  260.8 #1179 6:52PM
Thanks !! Good to know! - DeneciePie  327.9 #705 7:21PM
Actually try del scorcho instead of ketchup, some cops I know swear by it to polish their badges, although any hot sauce will probably work - InnerSpaceman  49.6 #4543 10:45PM

Thanks for posting, I always have a roll or two of cleaned non zinc pennies. When I see kids pressing pennies I give them some of my cleaned ones. I'm at 147 pressed coins. I store my pennies in a Davey Jones treasure chest purchased from pieces of eight store.✌❀🐭 - Hop-Low  634.5 #292 8:51AM
That is an impressive collection. It's also very thoughtful of you to have the clean pennies on hand. - aidensmama  340.1 #656 9:08AM
I gave some out on this last trip, one kid had a birthday button, so I gave him the quarters too. - bluefairy  643.3 #289 3:54PM
Great info ! - SomethinMagical  18.1 #7163 9:06AM
Wow, I would've never had imagined ketchup would do the trick. Thanks for the tips. - aidensmama  340.1 #656 9:10AM
Wow this is a great post thanks!! - adisneyfamily  865.4 #196 9:41AM
Great tips! - HarvesterProducts  261.6 #1172 9:49AM
Great tips, we did this before our last trip, but got so wrapped up in the magic that we didn't even use any. We also soaked them in Coca Cola for a while. - MightyWhitey  1081.4 #156 9:51AM
Sorry, had to bump, but I wanted to add my two cents (hehe). I used all of your tips and they worked really well cleaning the pennies, but there was still some black gunk stuck on some of them so I went searching for another solution to get off the remaining gunk. And I discovered... an eraser!! Worked wonders. All you have to do is rub it over the dirty parts and it comes right off and leaves penny just like new. Hope this helps someone. Thanks for all the tips! Very excited to use my new shiny pennies on our next trip :D - lohofosho  784.9 #214 1:17PM
Wow! Thank you, my son just started collecting during our last trip in April! - BombFrogFormerCM  881.9 #187 1:58PM

I just called them to price out our potential trip in June. Chris was so nice and the MW savings are phenomenal! Still waiting on work vacation approval to reserve the room!  - HNL2SFO  205.4 #1848 1:26PM
What percentage saving are we looking at for being MouseWaiters? Is it better than a AAA discount.  - MoChuck  128.1 #2969 3:57PM
@Admin. I filled out a form for May 22nd.  I hope you got it. Thanks. - Winnie111286  4093.5 #28 2:23AM

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

unFORECAST for the week of June 29, 2015

Last year, Independence Week was unusually slow. July 4 was one of the slowest days of the year, if you can believe that! Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week averaged in the 60s, which is not very crowded at all. It is supposed to cool down a little later in the week, which could bring large crowds this weekend. To get a real-time look at how crowded the Parks are, check the MouseWait app for real-time Crowd Index averages and wait times.  - Admin Jun 29, 2015 12:52PM



We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  437.6 #461 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.6 #7066 11:53PM
I love these posts!  I do have a question/request/suggestion...is there a way to only show the 3-4 most recent posts?  It's a lot to scroll through. @@Admin - TiggersAndTinks  130.6 #2942 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  237.2 #1438 5:04PM
I hope to be down at the end of August or first part of September. Which would you choose? - DeneciePie  327.9 #705 10:48PM
Sounds like you'll be there for Disneyland half marathon weekend  - MarshaMouse  4429.1 #23 7:41PM
