epcot phone booths not working

tried calling the phone booths while at rose & crown,
only got a recording that the number is not a listed number

they were working last week, & had a nice time calling the booths. I usually asked what their favorite part of the day was, & most answered talking on the phone!

Oh no! I hope they are working again in 2 weeks. My kids and I love calling the booths and watching the people looking around to see who is watching them. I even have the numbers stored on my iphone!

1) U.K. Phone Booths
. . . Right Booth: 407 827-9861 (London-Style Red Booth)
. . . Left Booth: 407 827-9862 (Open-Front Booth)
. . . Center Booth: 407 827-9863 (London-Style Red Booth)

um I think thats correct, I don't have my slip of paper in front of me I just grabbed this off another thread.


but I think its listed wrong which booth is what.
the phone numbers are correct. I guess watch which booth rings..


i guess keep trying to call
i looked inside & the numbers are correct. (but as i said, I don't have my list to which booth is which)

My daughter and I love to call the phone booths from home and chat with the lucky people in Epcot but this week we couldn't get through.

I tried calling all 3 numbers last week and couldn't get through. I kept getting a recording that the phone wasn't a working number. My husband and I were sitting on a bench outside of Rosé and Crown. I know they worked last year because, we did the same thing.

I tried this morning. I got static at the Canada phone booth. When I called the ones in the UK I just got busy signals, no recording. That could also mean they are out of service. Probably some jerk ruined it for the rest of us by being rude and a guest complained. Hope not though. It was always fun to call them!

Hmm. Calling a phone booth at a theme park to speak with total strangers. Would it be just as fun to open up the white pages and do the same thing? Or just as stupid?
