There are three vending machines (North Pole Icy Bits, Red Deer energy drinks, and Elfsburg Choco Treats) in the vestibule of the entrance to the Hall Of The Snow Globes, but Lucy looks uncertainly around at all three machines, so obviously Scott neglected to tell Lucy which machine to use. He would never have neglected to tell her this important information, given his knowledge of how vital it was that Lucy succeed.

Plot holes 

Santa has to perform the pass-code to operate the revolving door to the Hall of Snow Globes, whether entering or exiting it. Therefore, Jack Frost could not have exited the Hall without knowing the code.

Lucy waltzes bouncily across the room near the entrance to the Hall Of The Snow Globes, yet when she stops upon seeing Jack with Scott's Santa-globe, the snow-globe that she''s carrying is clear, with no floating particles stirred up inside it. Obviously just an imitation snow globe without any sprinkles inside it.
