How to Send Mickey Mail from Walt Disney World #disneyside

by Carrie with Children with 12 comments

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?!

How to Send Mail from Mickey Mouse
This small gesture quickly became the highlight of our trip. It was a quick, easy and affordable way to share the Disney magic with others. We even took it one step further and mailed directly on Main Street U.S.A! Here’s what we did –

Buy a postcard and a stamp. Pick up a postcard at most any shop in the parks. Most shops usually have stamps for sale, if not they can direct you to one that does. All Disney resorts have stamps for sale too. 

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!

And don’t just limit yourself to Mickey Mouse and the Magic Kingdom – any of the characters that sign autographs can do this too!  I think we may start trying a few different characters 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!

What Disney character would you like to send you mail?

      Oh good choice! That would be a great one! If only the smoulder came with the postcard :)

    I didn’t know you could do this! My girls would probably freak if they got a postcard from any of the princesses!

      I think we may get some princess postcards the next time we visit – I’ll keep you posted :)
