Mickey Mail!?

New to WDW but think I received my Mickey Mail yesterday. It included 2 luggage tags and a booklet of vouchers. A little disappointing, considering the vouchers just seem to be coupons for various activities or restaurants of which we have little interest (except for perhaps the arcade credits). Is this general consensus? Or did I receive the wrong booklet?

That is the same book everyone gets.

What did you expect it to be?

You'll get your tickets and another booklet at check in with maps and things.

Not sure. I guess I took it from everyone's excitement to get it that it was something special (ie maps, brochures, tickets, etc.). But I suppose the mail's indication that you're only X-number of days away from your trip that is the truly exciting thing.

exactly...it's more about what it symbolizes than what it actually is

You can get seriously excited when your Mickey Mail arrives! It's the Mouse's way of saying 'See ya real soon!!!'

Mickey mail usually arrives around 30 days (give our take a few) before your trip.

I just got mine, too - was pleased to see the addition of 15% off marina activities - taking a sea racer for a ride is fun, especially for tweens / teens - their only chance to drive! Fishing excursion was fun, too. But these are things you might be more likely to try on a second or third trip, once you've got Disney figured out.

But generally, I think it's Disney trying to divert you from the parks while keeping you on property, spending money.

I received our Mickey Mail last Saturday for our trip coming up in 20 days! My agent even included an Autograph book for my god-daughter since it is her first trip! And everything was inside of a cinched bag with the travel company name on it. That was such a nice surprise! But the booklet that comes has been the same for a while now... everyone gets it. Now my Mom picked up her "mickey mail" from her agent yesterday and was disappointed to find out that there was NO booklet with vouchers and no luggages tags like we all got. Even my sister booked through the same agent as her and got the tags and booklet. It was a bunch of Liberty Travel paperwork. I thought that was weird.

Now I am still waiting for our DME stuff to come in the mail!!

Did your Mom book her own room or is she sharing a room? If she has her own room she would get her own Mickey Mail...if she is sharing then either you or your sister has her included with your Mickey mail.
