The squished penny is our go to souvenir when visiting just about anywhere but especially when we hit Disneyland.
Not only is the squished penny economically the best option for a souvenir usually costing a mere 50 cents for a very long lasting souvenir, but it also is great for our constantly moving family. It’s small, practical, and easily movable. Plus Disneyland pennies have some special stuff that changes from year to year. Get the classics and then update each year that you visit with a personalized souvenir for that specific time you visited.
Wondering where all the penny machines are at Disneyland? Ask any store cast member. They have photocopies of a map with the locations of all the pennies in both parks.
Don’t forget to pick up a squished penny diary to hold all your new super inexpensive souvenirs.
