Here's the postcard thread for returning/future cruisers - "Pay-it-forward!" - Part 2

Please read these guidelines before posting on this thread! Thanks!


This is the thread to post a request for a postcard to be sent to your children from someone who has returned from a DCL cruise.

Here is how to do it:

For returning cruisers with postcards to send:

Reply by PM to a request on this thread. (Please don't post that you have postcards available and ask people to PM you with requests. You will be getting requests long after you have run out of postcards!)


For future cruisers requesting a postcard

1. Post a request on this thread. Please try to limit your request to one postcard per address, if possible.
example: "We are cruising on the Magic in October. Can someone send a postcard to my child/ren? Thanks!"

2. A returned cruiser will send you a PM, letting you know they can fulfill your request.

3. Reply to the PM. Please include names, address, date of cruise, which ship you will be on, and which character you'd like to "sign" the card, even if you have already posted that information on this thread. (Including all the info in the PM makes it easier for the sender to get the card out.) Also, you can include any special message you'd like the writer to include, if desired.

4. Important! Go back to your original post, click on the "edit" button (bottom right of the post), add in a message to say that your request has been filled, and click on "Save Changes". This will make it easier for us to know who is taken care of, and who still needs a reply.

5. Enjoy the postcard and the cruise! Remember to grab a couple of postcards (they are provided in each stateroom, or you can buy some on board), and when you get back, please visit this thread again and reply to a request. Pay it forward!


****** Please note that the PCs do NOT have to be mailed out from CC or even FL. ******

The post office at CC is unreliable since it is not always open when the ships are in port and it can take months for a postcard to arrive at its destination...if it ever does. If you are flying out of MCO there is a Mail Center / U.S. Post Office at Orlando MCO Airport with Postage Stamps/Mailbox & Vending Machines. It is located at the North Walk and is open 24 hours.

Thank you for continuing this!

We sail July 9 and I'd love for my daughter to receive a postcard prior to then.

I'd be happy to send out cards after we return.

thanks!

updated 6-18: thank you to the kind soul who responded to my request~

Setting sail on July 11th.

Would love to have a postcard for DGD 8.5 and DGS 5.5 before we leave.

I am already committed to sending postcards to someone on a later Cruise.

I am not sure one would make it to you in time since we do not return until the 18th or I would love to help you out.

Just so everyone understands I am NOT taking this over. I have simply posted a new thread and closed the old one so that there is no confusion trying to go back and figure out who still needs cards sent.

If you are going to participate in this, please follow the guidelines copied from the old thread. If you will send a PC, pm the person and then exchange information, then the person who requested the PC needs to edit their post and show that they have been contacted and the request is no longer available. The DIS boards and/or moderators are not keeping up with this exchange.

How cool is that! We will be in Columbia, Sc on (can you believe it) November 28th, 09 which is a Sat. We are taking out daughter to the Miley Cyrus concert. I understand that the USC/Clemson game is on the same day...It's going to be a mad house.
Anyway, I just PM you, let me know if you have any questions. and drive safe to Garden City!

Got your PM...will make sure I get those postcards mailed on 7/25. At least the concert with be a Colonial Center and game at Williams Brice- but traffic will be a nightmare. You should book a room at Hampton Inn and just walk over to the concert...very nice hotel...
