Hey, Everyone
I'm planning to send our postcards out from DTD on our first
day at WDW. I've heard that there is a postoffice in DTD to
send them from. Do they sell stamps there also, or should I
take my own ? And, do they also sell postcards, or would I be
better off purchasing them from the World of disney store?
19 days to go !!!

We will be there 4/30 to 5/7/05. If you need postcards, please pm me. I'll send them to the first 5 I receive. Let me know if your child has a favorite character. I will try to match the postcard to their favorites (no promises!).
(Wish I had thought of this when my nephews went in January! They would have loved getting the postcards!)

I have posted already, but not gotten a response, so here goes again - I will be there May 20-25 and would be happy to send postcards since I was lucky enough to have someone planning to send one to my boys. I will send to the first 5, so PM me if you would like one sent to you during my stay. Also, just as everyone else requests, let me know fav. character, event, etc.

The Wonderful World of Memories store sells postcards and can meter and mail them . I did mine last week and I would suggest writing the addresses in small print and getting them metered before you get them signed. The regular postcards didn't have any special requirements, however, the shaped postcards needed extra postage. The princess postcards were 50 cents to mail. I assume this will go up when regular postage increases this summer. I took my own stamps because I had Disney ones but I will probably not do that in the future.

Hang on there... where'd you hear that? Regular postcards (up to 6 inches long by 4-1/4 inches high) are $0.23. Large postcards (over 6 inches long or 4-1/4 inches high) are $0.37. Then... large postcards require an additional $0.12 nonmachinable surcharge when any one of the following apply:

* Height exceeds 6-1/8 inches, or
* Length exceeds 11-1/2 inches, or
* Thickness exceeds 1/4 inch, or
* Length divided by height is less than 1.3 or more than 2.5.

I don't remember the princess postcards fitting that criteria.

I just measured a left over princess card. It is 5 3/4 inches x 6 1/4. These cards are cloud shaped ( for lack of a better description) with a banner at the bottom that says Walt Disney World and has Cinderella, Snow White, and Sleeping Beauty. It does say on the card extra postage required but I thought postcards weren't the cost of a regular letter. I believe the woman at the store said the regular postcards were 23 cents but I put the Disney stamps on them. I grabbed my receipt and it says 7 qty\ $.50 stamp total $3.50.

Okay... now I'm really confused. I have sent one of the giant Mickey postcards with a $0.37 (regular stamp) and it arrived at its destination. I would think that, if anything needed extra, it'd be that one. I really can't figure this. I sent the exact princess one you're talking about recently. I guess I'll have to hold my breath now...

Sorry, I really don't mean to confuse you. I was just taken by surprise that the princess ones were extra postage and I didn't want anyone else to get sticker shock. I'm wondering though if this is why some people haven't gotten their cards?! I had to specifically ask about the extra postage. I tend to over organize and I didn't want to mess up my first fairy godmailing. Maybe if someone is going there soon they might have a little extra time to speak with someone about it. I was being pulled in 3 directions by my kids and was trying to hurry.
I don't want to scare anyone off, Please keep paying it forward

Thank you to our fairy godmailers; we received our postcards and my kids, DD5 and DD4 are super excited and we are willing to do this for another lucky family. We will be there May 4th-10th if you are interested. I will take the first 5 people that PM me (we have a stack to do ourselves). Please send me their favorite charactor and I will do my best to get them and tell me what you would like it to say. Again, thanks fairy godmailers, you made our day!
