Brand-new Disney100 medallions have been introduced at Walt Disney World and are now available at the Emporium on Main Street, U.S.A., in Magic Kingdom. There are four differing designs, priced at $6 per medallion or $20 total for the entire set.
An additional Jack Skellington medallion celebrating the 100th anniversary has been spotted at Plaza del Sol Caribe Bazaar in Adventureland.
Disney100 Medallion – Emporium
Within the Emporium, this new offering can be found wedged between the wall of t-shirt designs and the pressed penny machine, which is also currently stocked with Disney100 designs. For a full guide with photos of all Disney100 pressed pennies across Walt Disney World and where to find them, check the information out here.
The machine accepts all major credit cards and $1, $5, $10, or $20 bills.
Each design is unique on the front, with a different pair from Disney’s Sensational Six primary characters featured — Mickey and Minnie, Donald and Daisy, Goofy and Pluto, finishing with Chip and Dale. A castle is included on each, along with the Disney logo and the centennial’s slogan: “100 Years of Wonder.”
Transversely, the back for each medallion is identical, with “100 Years of Wonder” featured more prominently, Mickey and Minnie occupying the zeros, and Tinker Bell casting down an array of pixie dust with a star overhead — perhaps the second star to the right that acts as a guide to Neverland.
Disney100 Medallion – Adventureland
In Adventureland, there is one extra medallion specifically for Disney100 that can be found in the Plaza del Sol Caribe Bazaar. Please note: only one of these options denotes the 100th anniversary — all other medallions in this machine are part of the standard collection.
This particular piece diverges from the others on the front, without a castle and without one of the six major mascots of The Walt Disney Company. Instead, Jack Skellington from the 1993 film “The Nightmare Before Christmas” is the star.
Akin to the other four, Jack’s medallion features the same design on its back.
As a reminder, all five of these medallions are currently available in Magic Kingdom, and will likely be available for a limited time, coinciding with the company’s centennial. The 100th anniversary is in full swing, as Walt Disney World in particular, will be pushing forward with its celebration via monthly themes covering different topics and characters across the Disney pantheon. This begins in April at Disney’s Animal Kingdom — where conservation and a Moana meet and greet will be the spotlight during the park’s Earth Day and 25th anniversary festivities.
EPCOT is intended to be the primary host of Disney100 events at Walt Disney World, with some plans already announced and further updates we will share as soon as they are available.
