 Machines Off-Stage
 
Wednesday, August 1st, 2018

Machines are routinely removed for fixing and refurbishment. Most of the times the machines are only gone for a few weeks but we have noticed that this could take longer.

In checking some of the machines we have noticed that there are currently three machines that are off-stage. Two machines are at EPCOT and they are the Les Halles machine in the France World Showcase with the secret Agent P design and one of the Japan World Showcase machines. The third machine that is currently off-stage is one of the Hollywood Junction machines located at Hollywood Studios.

 World of Disney Marvel Machine Relocated
 
Thursday, July 12th, 2018

Back in February the World of Disney store at Disney Springs began renovation which affected access to the pressed penny machines since half the store was blocked off by construction walls. Recently, the part of the store that was being renovated reopened and the other half is now closed.

The 8-die Marvel machine that was originally placed on-stage at Once Upon a Toy in September 2016 and moved to the World of Disney in July 2017 has been relocated again due to this renovation. This 8-die machine with Marvel character designs is now located at Pin Traders which already has four machines at this store. The World of Disney renovation is not scheduled to be completed until Fall 2018 so we are not sure if this is a temporary move or a permanent move.
