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

I have a question, I have three children, and would like for all three to get a postcard at close to the same time, what's the best way for me to make this happen? Thanks for answering my question to whomever does.

goofydad621, you just made MY day with that wonderful offer/suggestion. I don't have a young child any more (boy, they grow up so fast!) but it warms my heart to see there are caring people like you willing to do something like that. Thank you for wanting to pay it forward...that it truly a pixie dust idea! :wizard: :wave: :flower:

DD got a postcard from WDW from Mickey about a week before our trip... she LOVED it! We then sent out postcards to three families during our trip in November. It was fun, and great to know others got the same thriil my DD did. If anyone is thinking of doing it, go for it! It doesn't cost much, and it gives you a great feeling to make some child's day. We plan on doing it again when we go in the fall. :wizard:

Hi all, I am going in March. 03/20 thru 03/24. I have a PS for the Princess Storybook Breakfast, dinner @ Chef Mickeys & lunch @ The Crystal Palace. I am willing to send a few postcards. I think this is a GREAT idea. I don't have a little one, however my 15 year old is still my little princess. We will be celebrating her sweet 16 in WDW. I still like to think that you are never to old to believe in magic. At 45 I know I still do. I will be the on wearing the pink princess badge everyday of my trip. Most of my family and my co-workers think I am a little nuts to still consider myself a princess...I don't care! If I had my way I would wear a tiara every day!!! It's a feeling on the inside that I can't explain, you just know...PM me and I will send a postcards to a few princes & princesses of any age.

Leaving for my Happy place in 34 days!!!woohoo!!

what a great idea! i would love to do this on my trip in march as well. i have a question though - i don't think characters will write anything besides their name (right?) so do you write a message in your own handwriting and then just have the character sign it? i wouldn't want to send a child an inferior postcard :blush:

SnowyPrincesses:)
02-13-2005, 12:51 PM
I'm just going to look at one of the autographs we get and then do my best to copy the style. I'm not going for awhile but closer to departure I would love to have someone send cards to the two girls I'll be taking. Of course I'll do the same for others when I get there too. I love this idea!!!

Is it sad that it makes me a little misty eyed? :blush:

We're going May 1-7 and would be glad to send a few postcards for those kiddies going in the summer. Please send me a pm and I'll pack the info with my other stuff.
I think this is a great idea! I can remember loving to get mail when I was a kid. How cool to get some from my favorite Disney character!
(I don't have kiddies, but would love to make the day for other munchkins!)

I did this for a college friend's children after our last trip. Funny part was I sent it in my best Mickey writing and MAILED from NY. But since I had heard about their trip from another friend, my girl friend had no clue how they got the card. We saw each other about a year later and all of a sudden she realized it was me!!

We're going next Monday - I'll happily take 3 pm's!!!!

My kids received post cards from a wonderful DIS member and his family a few weeks ago. My 9 yr old son brought his to school to show his teacher, he was so excited. His postcard is now hanging on the bulletin board in school so everyone can see it. My 10 yr old daughter was on cloud nine because she received hers from tink(her favorite). She still looks at it everyday. My five yr old daughters each got one from Snow White. We had to call everyone we knew the day they came to tell them. My 12 yr old didnt get as excited in the same way and of course gave me the skeptical look, but in her terms it was "Cool". She had a big smile on her face too. This is a wonderful thing to do. Wanted to share my story and also to say I am looking to Pay It Forward as well. I am willing to send 5 postcards during our trip (April 16-23). Please Pm me your childrens name, address, and any personal favorite characters.

I have committed to sending postcards. Do you mind sharing what was on the ones your children received so i can get an idea of what to write...Also, did the actual character sign it or just a good forgery?

Thanks for your help.

Thanks for your help.

All the cards my children received had different handwriting except for the Snow White cards obviously because they were from the same character. I don't know if they were signed by the character or not. The card from Snow white said something like "See you soon here in Walt Disney World". The card from Buzz said something like " Heard you were coming for a visit, see you soon", off hand I cant remember my other kids cards but they were along those lines, each of them were phrased a bit differently than the other which was nice, and like I said, were in different handwriting. That helped with the older kids because that is something they would definately pick up on right away. Hope this helps. Have a great trip.

I know our kids (ds6, dd3, and ds1) will get a big kick out of getting one, so I hope I can make a few other kids' days!

I've pm'd a few people about sending them postcards. How long does it take for a postcard to get somewhere? Is it about 3 days like regular mail or does it take a little longer? I'm trying to figure out if I should send the postcards early in our trip or if I can wait until the end.

I know DD would absolutely love to help with this. She is 18 and loves doing things like this. She got someone to send me a postcard from Tigger and I was really surprised to get it.

Our trip is March 16-20th, so just pm me and we will print out the information and take it with us. If you have a particular character you want on the postcard, let me know.

Hi folks... please don't overload me.... lol, but i leave this saturday am for florida... we check into disney on monday the 21st thru monday the 28th. i no longer have little ones, but have two older teen daughters who i am taking. i am willing to send a few cards to some kids. just send me the info.

it will be something really terrific to do while the teens are off doing their own fun. hubby won't be along this time because he was called to active duity in the desert. i can't think of a thing i would rather do than sit in a beautiful park, sending a smile to a young person.

our first trip with our dd's was so wonderful. they were the most perfect ages, 7 & 8 back then.... it was the most amazing thing to see the world through their eyes at that age... makes me wish for grandchildren....lol

2 days we leave home for family, and only 4 days till disney ~!!!!!!~ :love:

and send a postcard if you say you are going to! This topic was around in November and someone offered and after trading the info thru PM they were going to send a postcard to my niece. I had told her to be on the look out for a special message. Well, she never did get anything. Just be sure you will take the time out of a sometimes crazy day (it is Disney, afterall! :goodvibes ) to follow thru.

As you can see from my counter we are under the 30 day mark, so I am getting everything in order. If you want a post card PM me...we are doing PS at CM and CP and will be at the parks 10 days so if you want a specific character I will do my best. I do not have girls, but I do have a friend going with me that will be at the Princess Breakfast who will get girls cards signed if poss. If you list a specific character, please be aware that Mickey will be sent if other choice is unavailable.

My boys loved theirs....it really brightens their day!!

What a wonderful idea! I'm off to Disney at the end of April. I'd be willing to send out three cards to the first three people who PM me. Send the first name of your child, fav character and what you want the postcard to say along with where to send it. What a wonderful way to surprise a child and get them excited for Disney.

I just PM'd Tinkerbell for our upcoming trip in June.

We'll be there from June 4-June 13, so if anyone going after that would like me to send them or their kids a postcard, just PM me and let me know your kids' ages and favorite character. I'll do at least five.

That was very kind of you to offer.

I have a few sheets of letterhead and matching envelopes from the Disney Cruise...I offered to do that, but nobody was interested in letters from Mickey on a cruise ship....everybody wanted letters from Mickey in WDW. :teeth:

I suppose if any super-organized, do-everything-psychotically-early-like-I-do folks out there are going at Christmastime or mid-December want to make their requests early...hee hee!

Thanks to Tinkerbell81284!!! :cheer2:

My daughter got one from Cinderella and she's been sleeping with the card. She wants to take a rose to give to Cinderella as a thank you at the CRT. Poor Cinderella... I hope she's a good actress :rotfl:

My son got one from Goofy too! He was skeptical about it, but I saw that he took it to his room to hang on to it. Heee! Teenagers. Gotta love 'em. :love:

Thanks again, Tinkerbell!

I'll put my offer out there again. We'll be going in June, so if anyone wants a postcard from us, please feel free to PM me. I'd love to make someone else's child as happy as Tinkerbell made mine!

kboles THANK-YOU! We received the postcard yesterday! DD was THRILLED! DS was having a sad day as one of his "best buds" is moving away and yesterday was his last day at school. DS was really emotional about it- lots of tears. Today is better (so far) and he has checked out the postcard several times, even asked his dad, "Hey dad! Did you see we got a postcard from Mickey and Minnie?" I asked out loud, "I wonder how they knew we were coming?" DS said, "You called them, didn't you?" LOL! Actually, it arrived at the perfect time- we're leaving tomorrow!!! :Pinkbounc :cool1: :banana: THANKS AGAIN KBOLES!

Anyway, we will be at Disney World from April 17th to April 21st and would be happy to do 3 postcards or so. So...if anybody would like us to, please PM me with names, addresses, favorite characters, etc. My hubby is all excited to do it!!!! He answered the phone when Dominick called us about the postcard so he's the one that got the "initial excitement"!!! We hadn't told his parents about it either, so they were "shocked" and excited as well!!! And they couldn't figure out how it happened!! They thought it was magic too, but we had to explain it to them!!! So...please let me know if anybody would like any postcards sent in a couple weeks. We'll be staying at the Coronado.

What a magical way to 'start' our vacation countdown - getting a welcome postcard from their favorite character!

I would like to find out if anyone could send postcards to my 5 kids during the first week in June (approx one month before our July visit). Anyone available end of May, beginning of June and I will forward you info?

We will be visiting July 2-12, and would be happy to return the magic, by sending 5 postcards for anyone that would like for them....send me email with your info....prondez@yahoo.com

Just love these boards! :cheer2:

In return I will gladly take the names/addresses of a few who would like to receive a postcard during our May 5-13th trip.

Please PM me if you can send or if you'd like to receive.

:hourglass 19 days to go !!! :hourglass

The Wonderful World of Memories store sells postcards and can meter and mail them . I did mine last week and I would suggest writing the addresses in small print and getting them metered before you get them signed. The regular postcards didn't have any special requirements, however, the shaped postcards needed extra postage. The princess postcards were 50 cents to mail. I assume this will go up when regular postage increases this summer. I took my own stamps because I had Disney ones but I will probably not do that in the future.

ophie
04-21-2005, 03:27 PM
The princess postcards were 50 cents to mail.

Hang on there... where'd you hear that? Regular postcards (up to 6 inches long by 4-1/4 inches high) are $0.23. Large postcards (over 6 inches long or 4-1/4 inches high) are $0.37. Then... large postcards require an additional $0.12 nonmachinable surcharge when any one of the following apply:

* Height exceeds 6-1/8 inches, or
* Length exceeds 11-1/2 inches, or
* Thickness exceeds 1/4 inch, or
* Length divided by height is less than 1.3 or more than 2.5.

I don't remember the princess postcards fitting that criteria.

I don't remember the princess postcards fitting that criteria.

I just measured a left over princess card. It is 5 3/4 inches x 6 1/4. These cards are cloud shaped ( for lack of a better description) with a banner at the bottom that says Walt Disney World and has Cinderella, Snow White, and Sleeping Beauty. It does say on the card extra postage required but I thought postcards weren't the cost of a regular letter. I believe the woman at the store said the regular postcards were 23 cents but I put the Disney stamps on them. I grabbed my receipt and it says 7 qty\ $.50 stamp total $3.50.

Okay... now I'm really confused. I have sent one of the giant Mickey postcards with a $0.37 (regular stamp) and it arrived at its destination.

I guess I'll have to hold my breath now... :confused3

Sorry, I really don't mean to confuse you. I was just taken by surprise that the princess ones were extra postage and I didn't want anyone else to get sticker shock. I'm wondering though if this is why some people haven't gotten their cards?! I had to specifically ask about the extra postage. I tend to over organize and I didn't want to mess up my first fairy godmailing. Maybe if someone is going there soon they might have a little extra time to speak with someone about it. I was being pulled in 3 directions by my kids and was trying to hurry.
I don't want to scare anyone off, Please keep paying it forward :wizard:

I was wondering if someone can tell me where I can buy postcards at disney. Do the resorts sell them?? Just curious where I might find them. I love to purchase them for all the parks and some of the attractions. I enjoy using them in some of my scrapbooks as well as sending them to people. I really appreciate the help.

You can buy them in the resort stores, at stores in the parks, and several stores in the Downtown Disney Marketplace. I think for the most part they were between .50 - $2.00 each.

I have been basically homebound from illness/disability and anything special really improves my day. I'm going to post my pay it forward on the disability board closer to my trip...Thanks again!

I'm posting this once more before I leave because I still have room for 2 or 3 more postcard recipients. I will be there May 18-23. I love this idea and have even enlisted my mother to help. We are both teachers and we recognize how special it is for a child to get recognized- even by a princess or a mouse! Anyway, PM me if you would like a postcard sent to your children (or yourselves!). Only 13 days to go! princess:

We're hoping to find a "fairy godmother" to do this great idea for dd and ds for our late July trip. But in the meantime, I'm so excited about this idea. We would like to play "pay it forward" and start planning now!!! ::MinnieMo

The first 3 people that send us a pm we will send their child a post card from their favorite character (if possible).

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

We leave for the world on July 28th. If you are willing to help please PM me. Thanks in advance, and I would like to send 4 or 5 postcards back.

Family trip is planned - October 8 - 14 - I will gladly send postcards to some kiddos - I have 3 boys and we would love if someone is going in September to send ours a postcard - one for all 3 is fine with us.

This is the greatest idea I have seen or heard in a VERY long time.....

Talk about keeping the Magic alive........ :jumping1:

WONDERFUL idea! We will be there 9/23-10/1 and would be happy to send some. Email me if interested! I can probably handle doing up to 5.

So far we're sending to StephSAP and WDW1st-timers, so we have some room left for postcards! We'll be there 8/18-23.

I still have room for 1 or 2 more postcards to be sent out. One family cancelled due to changing date plans so now I have room to send to another family. Email me if you need a post card sent. I still want to keep it at us sending 10 out. This is a great thing to do!!!
