****Fairy Godmailer List Part II***** (AKA: FGM)

Ok, so we overloaded the first thread, which is FANTASTIC!! That means that there's a LOT of us out there spreading the magic!! But when the thread ended I knew we couldn't let the magic end!! So I contacted WebMasterKathy and she said we could just start a new thread!!

So here it is, the new Fairy Godmailer List Part II, let the magic continue!!

For those of you new here this is how it works!!!

If you are going to WDW, DL (Or maybe on DCL stopping at CC where they have a post office) you can ask someone to send a post card to your children from their favorite Disney character with a note saying something like we're here waiting for you, or whatever you want, especially if there's something special your celebrating while you’re there!!!

You in turn would offer to do this for others!!


Please make sure when you make a request you state how many cards you are requesting, which park/cruise you'll be at/on, and what dates you'll be there. This will let others know if they will be there before you and can be your FGM. You can then correspond names and address in private through PM's rather than posting personal information here!!


Walt Disney built the magic, and we can help continue spreading it!!

David

Thread #1: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=842646


I HAVE HEARD FROM MANY PEOPLE, INCLUDING OUR FGM THAT POST CARDS ARE HARD TO FIND IN WDW!! OUR FGM GOT THEM OUTSIDE OF WDW!! I HAVE RELATIVES WHO LIVE IN ORLANDO AND I'LL HAVE THEM MAIL ME WHAT I NEED. HOWEVER, THIS ALL BEING SAID I WOULD SUGGEST THAT IF YOU ARE FLYING YOU TRY AND GET WHAT YOU NEED AT THE AIRPORT, AND IF YOUR DRIVING YOU TRY AND STOP ON YOUR WAY AND PICK UP WHAT YOU NEED OUTSIDE OF WDW!!

Glad to find the new thread. Been away from this for awhile. Am at WDW now, but not able to send at the moment. I just want to say though for anyone wondering about doing this... it's GREAT!!! I enjoy doing this and actually still send to some of the kids Ive sent to before and have even met them later (mom knew who I was but the kids didnt). Its a pay it forward kind of magic/sharing.

I will be going in the next few weeks with my daughter (not sure of the date yet) and I will also be going the first weekend in November with my son. I would be very appreciative if someone would send cards for them. If someone wouldn't mind sending them out, please pm me.

Also, I would like to send some out while I am there. PM me.

This is an awesome idea!

we're going in August

We'll be at WDW from 20 - 25 August.

we're 1st timers and celebrating DS7s bday (Aug 21st) and our Anniversary (13 years!).


I can send cards while we're there - and would LOVE it if someone could send cards to my kids too (DD8 and DS6 turning 7).

PM me if you'll be at the world or if you need me to send for late Aug/Sept.

My kids got their cards from our FGM today!!!

Thanks to davis65 as our kids got their FGM cards today and the kids were THRILLED!!! I asked my son how Mickey knew he was comming and he said he called him on the Mickey phone in his bedroom and told him. I have an old style Mickey phone where Mickey holds the receiver in his hand. We don't use the phone so it's in his room for decoration and play.

My daughter is walking around with her cards and when you try and look at it she hugs it and says MINE!!!

I updated the first thread with some new information!!!

Let's keep spreading the magic!!!

David

Any going this week or early next week that can send some post cards to my kids?

I'd be happy to pay it forward. I can volunteer to send 5 the week of 04/24 - 05/01.

Just PM me your child's name, address, special message, and character you think they'd like to hear from.
