Did you know that you can send mail from Main Street U.S.A in Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World? During one of our recent trips, 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 at Walt Disney World
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 Mouse
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!)
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 Walt Disney World – I bet you’ll love it too!
Sending postcards to friends has quickly become a tradition for us. We have already started talking about who will receive the next postcard from Mickey!
