Okay here is the deal. A couple of nice DIS'ers made my DD6 day witha postcard from a character in December, saying can't wait to see you when you come to visit. We would like to pay it forward.

The first 3 people that send me a pm we will send their child a post card from their favorite character.

Please send name of child, address and any special message and a couple of different characters in case we can't find first choice.

Hope this helps build a childs belief in PIXIE DUST magic

The move of the Pay it Forward sticky to the community subforum is going to kill this wonderful idea.

Since the move nearly a week ago, this is the second post in a thread that usually gets a dozen a day. With the sticky no longer on the top of the board, those that don't know about it have no reason to look for it.

I haven't gotten any bites on my previous post ( I got two) and I'm thinig that could be due to the move. There is a Fairy Godmailer sticky on the Families board, it seems to be the same general idea, maybe we could get them merged? Just a thought

The previous sticky was 'past board limits so here's the new one.

Old one can be found here:

Could it again be a sticky on top of the Theme Parks Attractions and Strategies board?

The problem I see is that this is such a cool idea to share with everyone, and too few people go to the community sub board for it to get noticed.

Thanks for your consideration.

I have been reading this thread and it is hard to tell who might be available to send a card. Here is our situation, we are going to the World March 14-21 for spring break. I hope someone out there is willing to send cards to my DD7 and DD5. PM me or respond and I will get you mailing info. Thanks so much to anyone who might help

Thanks to Armywife

Received the cards on Friday. The girls were so surprized. Jasmine came over on Friday to stay the weekend with Desiree, so they were together to get the cards. Jasmine was amazed that Princess Jasmine sent her a card. You could see in her face, how did this happen? She is getting so excited(her first trip) and Desi is too. Thanks again for taking some of your precious time with hubby to make their weekend. I hope you and your hubby had a great time. :goodvibes

Wow, I just spent almost an hour looking for this thread, lol. :rotfl2: I couldn't understand where it went, and was sure it had to still be around. :confused3 I don't remember it being hard to find, I don't know if I'll be able to find it again. I'm going to check out the thread on the families board that I read about here. We're going in August, so it's probably early to post to get requests to send some cards. We just finally decided to go for sure, and I'm just excited and making all the plans. :banana:

Hi Andrea,
Thanks for sending a card to my nephew. He got it Saturday and was so excited! He never gets mail anyway, but to get A POSTCARD FROM MICKEY, oh, WOW!!! :goodvibes And I hope you had a great trip.

To others heading to the World later this summer: We'll be there June 13-20, and I will be happy to send a few cards out while there. I think my DN will enjoy picking some out for kids, he got such a kick out of his. Just send me a PM, to let me know the details in bold above.

Happy planning! :wave2:

Hi Rio,
No dumb questions here. DD6 usually means "Dear Daughter, Age 6". But some people number their children, where DS1, DS2, DS3 would mean "Dear Son #1, #2, #3". So context helps.

This is a thread with most all the abbreviations and acronyms:

She saw the Orlando postmark and was amazed. She was so thrilled and felt so special.:cloud9::cloud9::cloud9:

Have you chaecked out mouse-map dot com? Downloads are free and it's a pretty cool guide, as well. The bound version is sold at the site and on Amazon.

If you want official maps (the kind you pick up at the parks), PM me and I'll send them in August when I'm there.

We'll be down late October for about three weeks. We can send some then for the late November/December little visitors. I'll even try to get a photo of the favored character holding/displaying/signing the lucky little one's card...I'll try. If I can't make that happened, well, there will still be a little postcard sent.

Just let me know. :thumbsup2

My DH and I love doing this. We have sent cards back the past 5 times we went and had people do it for our kids too! If you have never had it done, the look on your kids face is priceless!

This past Christmas we had a letter sent from Disney (by a very nice DIS Boarder) inviting our kids to travel down a few weeks later in Jan, it was the perfect way to tell them about the trip! :hippie:

We are looking for one for our DS8 and DD3. If anyone (or 2 different people) would like to do this for my kids we'd appreciate it. We are going in mid Nov. PM me and I can give you the details. We'll be more than happy to send 2 as well.

My guy and I will be heading to Disney World for our 2nd visit on Dec 1 and would absolutely love to do something special around Christmas time and send postcards to a few kids to make their day =). :santa:

I can send about 3 postcards so please feel free to let me know if you want me to send one to your child. =)


However........i need some help here.......this will be my 1st time doing this and would like to know will I be able to get stamps and mail it in one of the theme parks? I'm not staying on site so I don't think I can send it off from one of the Disney resorts......=/

My question for cutie_dinokun, or anyone who has done this, Did you find out about purchasing postage and mailing from the parks? I believe that you can from an information desk, but it would be nice to know for sure. :confused3

When I've done this in the past, I purchased postcard stamps at the Post Office before my trip.
I made up a list of the people (with their addresses) who requested postcards along with their favorite characters. Some people requested that I say something special like "I'm looking forward to helping you celebrate your birthday at WDW this year. Love, Mickey"
Once we got to WDW I purchased postcards then addressed & stamped them.
We were staying on-site, so I just asked the front desk to mail them.
I don't know if there was a special postmark - but I'm pretty sure you could mail them anywhere in FL and most people (kids) wouldn't even notice!

Now, if there is anyone interested in sending a postcard to my grandson (age 8) or granddaughter (age 5) within the next month or so, I would be very grateful.
We'll be spending Aug 2 - 12 at WDW this year.
I'd be happy to do the same while we're there. Please feel free to respond to this thread or PM me.

Hi all!


I have a request for anyone who is interested in participating. I was contacted by a friend of mine last week that a friend of hers who was diagnosed with cancer a few years ago is going through a rough patch, and that her birthday is this Friday. She started an online "birthday party" on Facebook requesting her friends and her friends' friends, etc. to send this girl a birthday card for her 26th birthday. At the moment, there are 10,000 people worldwide invited to the event!!!!

Like all of us on here, this girl is a Disney fanatic, and I thought that we could get some postcards signed and sent to her from various characters. I know that her favorite character is Cinderella.

If anyone is interested, PLEASE PM me, and I'll send you the details. Keep in mind, though, that I'll be leaving this Friday to head down, so I won't be able to respond to PMs after Thursday!!!!



Until next time,
John

Thanks in advance!

Makes me believe in pixie dust :goodvibes

This is an amazing thread, it needs to be kept alive.

I would be more than happy to send a couple of cards, but I have a question..... Are these just cards that are handwritten by the sender in the name of the character or are we suppose to have the actual character sign the card? Please let me know.

Would love to have a postcard sent to my kids before our trip in October! What an awesome idea, would love to return the favor when we are there as well.

I'm going in 16 days, and I absolutely love sending postcards.

In fact, my one travel tip that I haven't seen anywhere else is to buy blank mailing labels and then either print or write the addresses of people you plan to send postcards to on the labels and keep them in a baggie in your purse/backpack/ect. Then when you go to send the postcard you can just slap the label on it and it saves time. Throw some postcard stamps and a decent pen in the baggie an you are good to go.

At any rate, feel free to drop me a line if you want me to send a postcard to someone

Every year I go, I send about 5 or 6 postcards for kids or someone who has a special love for Disney. My children are now grown, so I love having others to do this for.

I'll be heading back to my favorite place in 12 days. So if you would like someone to receive a postcard, please send me a message. I'll post back here once I can no longer accept anymore.

Let me know their favorite place or character at Disneyworld and I'll do my very best to find a card that will be the best fit. I do try to get the actual character to sign the card, but sometimes its not always possible. I do mail them from Disneyworld, so the postmark helps with the fun of receiving it.

Also if there is something special you want written on the card, just let me know...I aim to make this special for your child or special person.

I'd be glad to help spread some magic. I'm an AP holder living less than ten minutes from the parks so I'd be happy to go whenever someone has a need.

Just PM me a name, address, general age range, and favorite character and I'll get it in the mail ASAP!

Hope someone sees this even though this thread is quite old....I would like to do this for a friend who will be going to WDW a month after me. I've never done it, so not sure how it works. I know I can get a postcard in WDW, and someone said that there are CMs at the resorts who know how to sign like the characters, but I dont know how it works exactly. Do you bring postage, or do they have WDW postage there? Do you drop it in the mailbox on Main Street, or can you do it at your resort, etc.?

For anyone who happens to come across this thread and has the same questions I had a couple of post ago, here is what i did. I bought a postcard and postage at my hotel, Port Orleans Riverside. I looked up signatures online and tried to replicate them in case the child later got an autograph from that character(so he couldnt say, 'hey, that doesnt look like the other one')...but I did notice that all the signatures I saw online were slightly different from one another so I figured his mom could always tell him that his signature was never the same so why would he expect Mickey's to be, lol. I did ask at the hotel if anyone knew how to sign like Mickey but they didn't have anyone. Probably would have been better to ask at guest services at one of the parks or something. I didn't stand in Mickey's line because the lines were huge and I was with other adults who didn't know the child and wouldn't have understood waiting an hour to get a signature. I couldn't get back to MK to mail the card as i forgot to get it prior to us going to MK, so I mailed it from Port Orleans' mailbox instead (located in the gift shop), though I wish I'd had time to mail it from MK as it would have said main street, etc. Anyway, the childwas plenty happy with it as it was (his mom said he kept it by his bed and told it at night, "I can't wait to see you either, Mickey", so it all went well considering it was my first time and it was a rookie attempt.
