Just want to add...

I just got back a few days ago. While there, i was a fairy god mailer. I want to let people know, post cards are hard to find! There are a few but the assortment that used to be disney is no longer there. I had a very hard time getting the correct characters, and sometimes just had to send what I could find. I only mention this because I know I had to disappoint some people. I for example could not find pooh or eeyore. I appologize to anyone who I sent the wrong thing, but also wanted to mention this for anyone who is going down too.

I will be in Disney World from the 15th to the 20th of April.

Let me know if you need a FGD to mail your little one a message from the happiest place on earth.

Can do up to 5, and will mail out no later than the 20th...so plan accordingly for the dates you will be departing.

So, where is a tried and true place to find postcards at the World? MK: city hall or just giftshops? Emporium?

The biggest selection of postcards I found was in the little gift shop downstairs at the Grand Floridian. The place by the restaurant had some packs with like 10 or so to a pack that had a variety of characters. I also had good luck in the shops on main street - the big one on the left that connects all the way down to Casey's.
At AK, I buy mine in the shop right across from the exit to It's Tough to be a Bug!

I have cheated a little this time and bought some at the Disney Store here so I could do them on the plane and mail them as soon as I get there. Some of the kids I'm doing are going so soon after us that I didn't want to take a chance on not getting them there in time.

WE LEAVE TODAY!!!! HAVE GREAT TRIPS EVERYONE!

I think this has been answered already, but I'll go for it again. Some places mentioned are the shops down Main Street on the left hand side, the one's that go all the way through until you hit Casey's. The gift shop outside of the restaurant in the Grand Floridian, and the shop across the way from It's Tough to be a Bug, as you exit the attraction. Also I mentioned Mouse Gears in EPCOT. Hope this helps everyone out.

Did you get any responders? And when will you be there?

I totally spaced on this. My DH and I are going (without our kids!) for a work trip next weekend. We'll be there from 4/9-4/11. I'd be happy to send 2 postcards. Let me know if anyone is in need!

Anyone willing to do this this week??

I saw this thread months ago, and couldn't find it last week. We are leaving on the 13th and would love to have this done for my daughter. I'd be happy to reciprocate between the 13th-19th.

Sorry it is last minute!

Fairy Godmother help

Hello, I am new to the disney board and could use some fast help if anyone could help. I had to cancel our trip a couple months ago due to a illness/death in the family my grandfather was in hospice and we didn't want to be in Florida if anything happend to him. Well needless to say my children were upset, the older two took it ok but the youngest was upset over losing her papa and then no Disney. I was wandering I know this is such short notice but a friend of mine just told me about the boards and how great everyone is and I was wandering if anyone was at disney now or going in the next couple of days that could do me a huge favor for my daughter. My daughters birthday is on Saturday and her favorite princess or disney character other then good ol Mickey is Mulan. I was wandering if someone there could maybe find a post card of Mulan to send to her and just write Happy Birthday Rachel and mail it to her for her Birthday on Saturday. I will gladly mail what ever the cost is back if you email an address to me I would love to see her smile when she thinks Mulan really knew her Birthday. Thanks for any help anyone can give me and God Bless.
