Did you know that you can send mail from Magic Kingdom’s Main Street U.S.A in Walt Disney World? A few months ago, my friend Melissa from Sippy Cup Mom asked if I could get Mickey Mouse to sign a postcard for her son and drop it in the mail for him. Why had I never thought of this before?!
Make it official! If you are in the Magic Kingdom, head over to The Newsstand shop, located just to the left of the turnstiles as you enter the park, before you go underneath the train station. They have an official Main Street U.S.A rubber stamp to make your mail official!
Meet Mickey! When you meet Mickey, be sure to let the castmembers know that you’d like him to sign a postcard for you. If you don’t have a marker/pen – don’t worry, castmembers have one you can borrow.
Drop it in the mailbox. If you’re at the Magic Kingdom, there are mailboxes located up and down Main Street U.S.A – just drop it in! Other parks typically have mailboxes at the front of the park.
Spread the Disney magic! Let your friends and family know you’ve sent them a special surprise. They will be thrilled to have mail from Mickey – it’s a small gesture that will mean so much to them. And it’s fun too! (If you really want to be sneaky – don’t even tell them you sent it!)
Repeat! Sending friends mail from Mickey Mouse has quickly become a new tradition in our family. We love trying to decide who to surprise with a postcard! Give it a try on your next trip to Disney World – I bet you’ll love it too!
We are very excited for our next trip in a few weeks and have already started talking about who will receive the next postcard from Mickey!
