So I was reading Cindy's updated news and noted this item that there is now a Wall*e nickel press machine in Disneyland. On my last two visits to Disneyland I had noticed that the Splash Mountain penny press machine had disappeared (it was located at the very exit of the attraction; the change box is still sitting next to the empty space though).
I couldn't help but wonder if Splash Mountain became Wall*e. Does anyone know? Any chance that the Splash Mountain press might return?? I'm guessing not, as it's been gone at least 3 months now. I had loved that it had a little model of Splash Mountain inside of the machine. Lucky for me I had gotten a pressed penny on my last trip before the machine disappeared!

- Wall-E nickel press machine - Walking through the Candy Palace tonight, I happened to glance over at a machine and much to my surprise and delight, I noticed that it was a nickel press machine featuring Wall-E. There are actually three different designs: one of just Wall-E himself, one of Eve with her "plant indicator" on, and one of Wall-E holding the plant. Each costs $0.80 (three quarters to pay for the process and the nickel to be pressed that you get back). The machine is located just to the left of the fudge counter. Here's a picture of the designs from the machine. NEW 8/3/2008
