Pressed Penny Machines Closed at Splash Mountain in Disney World
A few days ago, we reported that there was a mad rush for pressed pennies before the closure of a nostalgic attraction. Today, we can confirm that pressed penny machines are now closed at Splash Mountain in Disney World.
Splash Mountain Updates Since Closure
Here’s a quick rundown if you’ve missed our updates on Splash Mountain. Yesterday, the ride closed in preparation for a The Princess and the Frog retheme.
Tiana’s Bayou Adventure comes to both Disneyland and Walt Disney World in late 2024. Disneyland’s Splash Mountain is still up and running, with no news of when it will close.
This weekend fans came out in large numbers for their final chance to experience the original attraction. Yesterday, signage was removed and tip boards displayed the ride as closed.
On board the Walt Disney World Railroad, the narration changed to reflect the ride’s current status. Today, tip boards have completely removed Splash Mountain from the lineup.
Those who hop aboard the Liberty Square Riverboat will notice Splash Mountain’s narration is gone. Make sure to check some of our other articles for more updates!
Pressed Penny Machines
Our MickeyBlogger is at Magic Kindom today, bringing you the latest from the site of the attraction. Today, he noticed that pressed penny machines are now boarded off and closed down.
Pressed pennies are a fun and affordable collectible to obtain at Disney Parks! When my son was little, he wasn’t interested in getting characters’ autographs or taking pictures.
So, we opted to start a Disneyland pressed penny collection! We purchased a book and started our journey.
It was so much fun for my son to be part of the penny-pressing process. We enjoyed finding hidden gems throughout the Park, and treasure our completed collection to this day!
It’s sad to see the machines closed down, but chances are when Tiana’s Bayou Adventure opens, they’ll be replaced with new designs!
