Disney World Pressed Coins Mobile Application

Find and log all of the Walt Disney World pressed coins using your iPhone or Android phone—no paper needed!

Several pressed coins from Walt Disney World

Did you know there are over 500 pressed coins (also called elongated coins) available at Walt Disney World in Florida? Many sites offer paper checklists you can bring with you, but by following the directions below, you can install an interactive Disney pressed coin app on your iPhone, or install it as a web-based smart phone app for Android or Blackberry. This app will allow you to mark ahead-of-time which coins you want to get while you're at Disney, and then let you log each coin as you find and make it.

Coins in the app are sorted by park as well as the location in the park. You can also look at a list of elongated coins you've already found as well as coins you are still hunting for. Even the elongated coin series (such as Princesses, Finding Nemo, or Cars) have their own menu to allow for easier searching. Just a touch of the screen allows you to mark coins as found.

Android Users! — You can use this application! Just select your "Browser" icon, go to the URL in Step 1 (http://www.hyliston.net/iphone/walt-disney-world-coins), and then select "New Bookmark". In the future, you can use this bookmark to go to the WDW Coins app, and it will remember your selections. You can ignore the rest of the steps that are specific for the iPhone app.

Here are the steps to install this web-based application on your iPhone:

1. Navigate to the Application

Web Site of WDW Coins Application

Use the Safari web browser on the iPhone and then navigate to http://www.hyliston.net/iphone/walt-disney-world-coins.

You can try out the app here, but once you install it on your home screen, you will have more screen space to see more of the pressed coins at one time. Remember that any coins you mark on one computer/phone/tablet cannot be transferred to another one. Be sure to mark the coins on the device you'll have with you in Walt Disney World.

At the bottom center of the screen, click on the bookmark icon ( Bookmark Page ), or in some versions of Safari, this button looks like a plus sign ( Bookmark Page ). Either way, touch this button.

2. Add the Disney World Pressed Coins to your Home Screen

A new menu will appear. Your list of choices may be slightly different than the list to the left.

Tap the "Add to Home Screen" button.

3. Name the WDW Coins Application

This is the last step! On the last screen, you will get a chance to name your new application.

The default name is "WDW Coins", which fits nicely on the home screen. You can, of course, change it to whatever you want.

Once you have a name you like, touch the "Add" button in the top right corner.

4. Your New Home Screen

The Safari window will disappear, and your home screen will appear. Now, to use the WDW Coins application, just touch the icon. You'll never need to go back into Safari again to use the application and track your Disney pressed coins.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why did you write this app?
My family was going to Disney World, and we wanted an app like this. I couldn't find one online, so I wrote one. It's just a hobby.

Why isn't this in the Apple iStore?
An Apple developer's license costs [too much] money. I'm just this one guy, and am letting people use the app for free. I didn't really want to spend much money on writing it or time learning a new coding language.
What information are you collecting about me?
Information about your coins is kept locally on your phone/device. DO NOT ERASE YOUR WEB STORAGE DATA. There is no database/repository of everyone's coin data. I use Google Analytics to track usage, but all that data is in aggregate. I know nothing about you personally.
Could you make your app do X?
I'd love to hear from you! But remember, I'm just one person. Here are some items I'd definitely like to receive via email and have your permission to use:
  • Corrections of any mistakes I have with the coin locations, based on your own observations
  • Photographs of elongated pennies, nickels, or quarters you made at Walt Disney World
  • Exact GPS coordinates of the various press machines
You can reach me at apps@hyliston.net.
