Hey, roobug! I'll send you a PM now. We are going in mid-July and I'd love for my daughter to get a card if you think you can mail it in June so it gets to her in time.

That said, I can also be FGM to someone. We travel/will be in WDW July 9-21st so probably best if your trip was in August (July may be cutting it too close).

How exactly does this work? Do you write the card in your own handwriting or do you need to get the character to sign it? Would like to do this but not sure how it is done.

Wish Trip May 16-22

Looks like a few of us there that week! I have 4 boys although the oldest is not that into this stuff... yet I'd be glad to send out lots of postcards! We have been thinking of pay it forward kinds of things to do while on our trip because we have been so blessed with even getting to take this trip with Tyler. I've PMed a few people already, but if anyone going in the next week or two would like to send them to my boys, especially Tyler, that would be great!

We will be celebrating Tyler's bday while we are there, he turns 6 the week before, and my Brett is turning 12 while we are at Disney so two birthday celebrations and of course the specialness of their first visit to Disney and a Wish trip... whew! lots to celebrate for sure!

Hugs!

My friends are going on their very first trip to WDW on April 28th. They have a 3 year old and a 1 year old and I'm sure they would be thrilled to get a postcard from Mickey welcoming them to Disney for the first time. I realize this is short notice, but if anyone is willing please PM me! Thank you so much!!!

You purchase post cards and write them out and send them for the kids your sending them to!! I'll have my DW write out the princess cards since she has nicer handwriting, and I'll write some of the others like Mickey!! No one is going to have the perfest charachter handwriting, but that's not what counts!!

I am still hearing that it's difficult to find postcards in WDW, so I'll reiterate from the first post, you may want to get them at the airport if flying, or stop at a store on your way in if your driving (like us) and pick them up!! There were some suggestions on the firts thread towards the end of where you can get post cards in WDW so you can check there. I know our FGM got them outside of WDW!!

We bought postcards at MouseGears at Epcot last weekend. For girls they only had the cool 3-D looking cards which were a little more expensive (but very nice). I sent 3 postcards to various children and 3 to my own (I was there for work so my kids stayed in NY).
I'm new to this but I wrote:

Dear _____,
I can't wait to see you soon!!!

Love,
_______ (Mickey, Tinkerbell, The Princesses, etc.)

My kids enjoyed them! I know one of the kids for whom I was a Fairy GM liked it, too.

Subscribing! I've been a FGM 3 times and can't wait to do it again. I leave for WDW August 26th and can send 3 postcards. PM me your child's name, address, favorite character and any other info you want me to put in the postcard.
