AdventureWhenever I am at Walt Disney World®, I always try and make sure I send at least one postcard to a family member (who missed out on the trip) or a friend back home.

Believe it or not, there are various mailboxes scattered throughout the parks where you can send a postcard to anyone you would like to share the Disney magic with. The best part about the postcard is that it is being sent from Walt Disney World®!

Most postcards and stamps are available in stores and gift shops throughout the parks, including Downtown Disney®.

Locations to find stamps:

  • Walt Disney World® Resort gift shops
  • Magic Kingdom® ParkNewsstand
  • Epcot®: Camera Center
  • Disney’s Hollywood Studios®: Oscar’s Super Service
  • Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park: The Outpost and Garden Gate Gifts
  • Downtown Disney® Marketplace: World of Disney®

Locations to find mailboxes:

  • Magic Kingdom® Park: Main Street Station® and at the end of Main Street, U.S.A.®
  • Disney’s Hollywood Studios®: Oscar’s Super Service
  • Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park: Garden Gate Gifts
  • Epcot®: Entrance Plaza as well as the Germany Pavilion and United Kingdom Pavilion in World Showcase.

Bonus tip: Want to send something extra special? Walt Disney World® actually allows you to purchase and send home a postcard coconut. Yes, an actual full-sized coconut! This is always a fun and special souvenir. You can find them in the Calypso Trading Post at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, BouTiki at Disney’s Polynesian Resort, and Pirate’s Bazaar at Magic Kingdom® Park.

    Yes, we always mail post cards to friends and family from whichever Resort we are staying in during our trips. We also sent our daughter a coconut from the Caribbean Beach Resort about 8 years ago when she was in college and couldn’t join us. She loved it and still has it on her shelf as a married Mom of a 20 month old. It was a hit!

    This is so neat!! Even after countless trips to WDW, I didn’t know about this! Send me a postcard next time?? 😉

    Unless it’s changed recently, the post cards are NOT postmarked WDW – instead I think it’s Lake Buena Vista as WDW is not a US Post Office.
