Actually Disney is phasing out the machines that take coins. They are replacing them with machines that now, for that same penny, you’ll pay $1 for one. Or $5 for a “set” that is from the same machine and a certain theme. For example, the old machines normally have anywhere from 4-6 designs that you can choose from, so right outside of the Buzz Lightyear ride (Magic Kingdom) you’ll find an old machine that has Jesse, Buzz, Woody, Lotso and Bullet for the $0.51 each. BUT at the end of the aforementioned ride inside the building is one of the new machines and you can pay (with your credit card because it no longer takes coins - not sure if it takes bills) $1 for your pick of 1 coin or $5 for the set of 8 coins all with different designs. So that popular $0.51 “cheapest” souvenir has now become $0.63 (if you pay the $5 and get all 8) or $1 a piece. Still by far the cheapest Disney souvenir but at a little higher cost than before. The old machines are not completely phased out yet so when you find them take advantage because they won’t be around very much longer.

This is personal experience from our recent vacation there on October 27th thru November 4th, 2018. Just thought I’d pass it along.

Thanks for the heads up. I didn't see these back in the Spring, so they must be new. I'll be in Disney World next week and will keep my eye out for the new ones. Sad to see this change, but I understand Disney trying to take advantage of eliminating the needing to provide change for those looking to collect and not having exact coins.
