Hey Guys!!!

I just called one of the phone booths in the UK part of the World Showcase!

I got through twice and talked to two different people!

I met a nice girl from Canada and a guy who just arrived at Epcot for Illuminations tonight!

(407) 827-9861

Hey, I'm a nice girl from Canada - wish I had been there to answer your call!:rotfl: Oh well, that's a neat idea you had to reach out to Disney. :goodvibes

Wow... you must be really bored! :laughing:

Hey Guys!!!
I just called one of the phone booths in the UK part of the World Showcase!
(407) 827-9861

Where did you get the number from? Is it shown inside the booth? Is that the same one used for the Kim Possible golf ball thing?

Its been going around lately on the theme park board.

I just spoke to some nice Canadians!

They had spent one day in each park, and were going to AK tomorrow, and then home. He said his kids were having a blast.

Anyone try this lately?
I did in April while I was near by.
It was fun to watch their face while talking to them.

I just got back from WDW and I meant to bring the phone number with me but I forgot it!

A friend of mine called someone the other day and talked to a lady for about a half hour he said!

I've done this a bunch - it's surprisingly hard to get someone to A. answer the phone and B. actually talk! But it's great fun. I have all 3 numbers programmed into my iPhone. ;)

The other booth numbers end in 9862 and 9863.

05-25-2010, 06:50 PM
LOL...I called the 9863 got a group of Teenagers from Long Island....Said they were having a blast, YOUR in DISNEY of course your having a blast...Shawnpirate:

I've tried calling the 9861 & 9863 numbers today and both times got fax machines.:confused3 Not sure what's happening there!

Oh, me too. Glad it wasn't just me. I was all set to see if anyone would answer and chat... and then got that annoying beeping/screeching sound. Oh well, I'll try again another time.

This sounds great. I'm going to have to try this sometime.

05-26-2010, 10:37 AM
i had a great time playing with ppl while there a few weeks ago (while my dd stood far away, embarrassed ;)).
i'm keeping the details for my TR, but have to say, it can be a lot of fun!!! (btw, i did disclose that it was me that called a bit after they got out of the booths - it was great to make total strangers laugh that hard:lmao:.)

I tried the numbers again last night and got through! I was super excited and pretty much bouncing in my seat. Some guy from Louisiana answered and gave one word answers to my questions and sounded like he was bored out of his skull! :rotfl2: I tried to engage him in conversation, but it felt more like an interrogation.

Me: "Hi! Where are you right now?"
Him: "Umm..Magic Kingdom in Epcot" ( :confused3 )
Me: "Are you having a great time?"
Him: "Yup"
Me: "How long are you visiting Disney World for?"
Him: "7 Days"
Me: "What did you do today?"
Him: "Walked around"

And so on...

He finally asked me who I was and I said I was just a random stranger calling the phone in Epcot. He said something about how I must work for Disney and hung up!

Very weird.

I called later and again got the weird fax screeching noise. Not sure why it works sometimes and not others, but if you get that awful noise, try again and you may get through.

Sounds like fun! I will have to try it sometime!

05-26-2010, 04:14 PM
WOW! Can't wait to call it! I am a teacher and have very little to do once June gets here! I am so chatty, I am sure that my DH will enjoy not having me dying to talk to him all day at work!

Anything that gets me a little closer to the magic! :cool1:
