Create magic and memories before your next Disney vacation by writing to your favorite Disney character…and receiving a card back from them! This is a super fun and educational way to include your children in the pre-vacation excitement buildup.
Use this Walt Disney World address to write a letter to your favorite Disney character:
Walt Disney World Guest Communications
P.O. Box 10040
Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830-0040
The sheer fun of sending and receiving letters appeals to every child. There is something special about putting letters into the mail box and then having letters delivered by the postman. Waiting for your Disney character postcard to arrive also contributes to the anticipation of your upcoming Disney trip.
- Write a letter from each child going on the trip – so they will each receive a postcard in return
- Write to Disney characters you know greet guests at the Parks and Resorts
- Keep a copy of the child’s written letter – as a fun memento or for a scrapbook page
- Write as many times as you wish – or to different characters
Letter Writing Tips:
Letters are valuable keepsakes…and letter writing can be fun! Receiving “real” mail in our digital age is a novelty for many children.
An important lesson for kids to learn: If you want to receive mail, you’ll need to send mail!
Sending letters teaches even very young children many important skills.
- Handwriting skills – using neat handwriting and correct spelling
- Letter-writing skills – tell the recipient about something that happened to you, ask the recipient questions about themselves
There are a lot of ways to make letter-writing creative:
- Very young children can send drawings and include a note with some help from Mom or Dad. (click here for Mickey Mouse coloring pages)
- Older children can ask questions – What is it like to live at Walt Disney World? What is their favorite ride or attraction? Where do they go on vacation?
- Or tell the characters how excited they are to visit them at Walt Disney World and share which ride or attraction excites them the most.
Born and raised in the south, I now live in central New Jersey. My days are filled with homeschooling, reading, and ministry work. My son and I are active members of our local church and enjoy camping with the Boy Scouts of America.
We believe everyday is a day to celebrate and if you visit our kitchen, you will find us putting sprinkles on everything from pancakes to ice cream! Between baseball games and scouting trips, we enjoy dreaming about our next Disney vacation.
