    I'm taking a pocket full of quarters to Disneyland. What should I spend them on?

    After reading KellyMcG86's Disneyland To-Do List, it got me thinking that there's plenty of things at Disneyland that I still haven't done.
    Since Theresa and I are always looking for new things to see and do at Disneyland, I thought this might be a way to get us exploring the places we might otherwise walk on by on the way to another ride.

    So what are your favorite ways to spend quarters at Disneyland?

    Find a penny press and get souvenir pennies! Or play at the Starcade!

    Get your fortune from 'Fortune Red' in New Orleans Square, consult Shrunken Ned in Adventureland, and play the Woody's Roundup marionette machine inside the Frontierland Mercantile store.

    That depends. How big is your pocket?

    I'm so ridiculously happy that my list is inspiring things like this!!

    At one point, I was trying to collect all the pressed pennies in the parks. I quickly learned that would add up to quite a sum, so I started picking and choosing the ones I really liked. They're cute little souvenirs!

    I liked shrunken ned's advice. I'd like to go to all of the little fortune telling machines.

    I need to check our the toy story marionette machine!

    I was thinking of taking ~$10 of quarters and see if that's enough. I was trying to only do things that you have to pay with coins.

    Thanks for the suggestions so far. I'll post photos of my adventures once we go!

    Frontierland still has a shooting gallery.

    I think they might also have a few pressed quarter machines too. I was always fooled when I saw these because I collect pressed pennies from everywhere and the quarter ones always threw me for a loop.

    Here is a random question, if anyone knows: How much would you need if you want to collect ALL the souvenir Pennies in the parks?

    The Haunted Mansion coin press machine uses quarters. It's under a large doorway arch somewhere in New Orleans Square. There are three different designs available, IIRC.

    (..my late husband once gave me a roll of quarters to spend at Las Vegas and I couldn't do it -- felt too much like doing something frivolous with the laundry money... Nickels I'm okay with...)
