How to Send Mail from Mickey Mouse at Walt Disney World

by Carrie McLaren with 238 comments

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?!

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 it directly on Main Street U.S.A! Here’s what we did –

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.

How to Send Mail to Mickey Mouse

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 Walt 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.

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!

What Disney character would you like to send you mail?

    You can also sneak and write an “it was great to meet you note” for your own kids and have the character(s) sign that. Then when you get home, they’ll have a special treat waiting in the mailbox. (Also consider bringing along a birthday card and get your kid’s favorite character to sign it while you’re there. Then stash it for the big day!)

    Oh, my daughters are different ages, but one would love one from Elsa and the other probably Rapunzel or Ariel – but the oldest is into Star Wars so probably one of those characters. There is a way to write to Disney and ask for an autograph and they will mail you them, too – without going to the park!

I’m so happy you and your family have these beautiful experiences and memories together.
