what a great idea! i would love to do this on my trip in march as well. i have a question though - i don't think characters will write anything besides their name (right?) so do you write a message in your own handwriting and then just have the character sign it? i wouldn't want to send a child an inferior postcard

I'm just going to look at one of the autographs we get and then do my best to copy the style. I'm not going for awhile but closer to departure I would love to have someone send cards to the two girls I'll be taking. Of course I'll do the same for others when I get there too. I love this idea!!!

Is it sad that it makes me a little misty eyed?

We're going May 1-7 and would be glad to send a few postcards for those kiddies going in the summer. Please send me a pm and I'll pack the info with my other stuff.
I think this is a great idea! I can remember loving to get mail when I was a kid. How cool to get some from my favorite Disney character!
(I don't have kiddies, but would love to make the day for other munchkins!)

I did this for a college friend's children after our last trip. Funny part was I sent it in my best Mickey writing and MAILED from NY. But since I had heard about their trip from another friend, my girl friend had no clue how they got the card. We saw each other about a year later and all of a sudden she realized it was me!!

We're going next Monday - I'll happily take 3 pm's!!!!

I'll be at WDW 2/25-3/5 and would gladly send a postcard to a child headed to WDW in March. Someone there now is sending one to my 2 and 3 year olds, so I'd like to return the favor. PM me with your address and I will send some out!

My kids received post cards from a wonderful DIS member and his family a few weeks ago. My 9 yr old son brought his to school to show his teacher, he was so excited. His postcard is now hanging on the bulletin board in school so everyone can see it. My 10 yr old daughter was on cloud nine because she received hers from tink(her favorite). She still looks at it everyday. My five yr old daughters each got one from Snow White. We had to call everyone we knew the day they came to tell them. My 12 yr old didnt get as excited in the same way and of course gave me the skeptical look, but in her terms it was "Cool". She had a big smile on her face too. This is a wonderful thing to do. Wanted to share my story and also to say I am looking to Pay It Forward as well. I am willing to send 5 postcards during our trip (April 16-23). Please Pm me your childrens name, address, and any personal favorite characters.

I have committed to sending postcards. Do you mind sharing what was on the ones your children received so i can get an idea of what to write...Also, did the actual character sign it or just a good forgery?

Thanks for your help.

Hi All!

I think this is a great idea!

My family, DH, DS1,DS2,DS3 and I will be visiting Disney World starting June 28th - If anyone can send my boys a card that would be wonderful.

I will also return the favor - if anyone needs a card while I'm at Disney World please don't hesitate to send me a PM.

Thanks!
Ely

All the cards my children received had different handwriting except for the Snow White cards obviously because they were from the same character. I don't know if they were signed by the character or not. The card from Snow white said something like "See you soon here in Walt Disney World". The card from Buzz said something like " Heard you were coming for a visit, see you soon", off hand I cant remember my other kids cards but they were along those lines, each of them were phrased a bit differently than the other which was nice, and like I said, were in different handwriting. That helped with the older kids because that is something they would definately pick up on right away. Hope this helps. Have a great trip.
