    Let me help spark the magic for your trip!

    Every trip I take, I try to send as many character postcards as possible out to folks across the country. I don't charge anything, of course . . . I just like to help folks get a little spark of the magic at home. (I am going April 16-23)

    I will send you a WDW postcard, filled out by a character you choose, to anyone you choose. In the past, folks have had them sent to their kids to announce a trip, send them to a spouse to celebrate an upcoming trip, or even just get it to themselves for a little pick-me-up!

    Here's an example of a message that I send:


    It will be mailed from "The World" and come with a Lake Buena Vista postmark. Send me a message with your details, and you'll be "on the list!"

    Post any questions on this thread, as it may help answer questions from other members.

    Here's a link to the thread when I did this last June- Once again . . . Can I help you start the magic?

    Have a Magical Day, everyone!

    I've done this in the past for friends with little ones looking forward to a trip. It's lots of fun. If I was there right before a holiday I would find Disney cards and have characters sign it and mail them too.

    Re: Let me help spark the magic for your trip!

    Yep, I've been lazy, so I don't have anything put together for a report. I do plan to put up a bullet-style list to put out the unique things I saw (245 minute standby wait posted for Mickey's Philharmagic!) or did (two words for a perfect lunch = Tusker House) this time around.

    I'm glad that they arrived and were enjoyed! Anticipation is a big part of our trip, and we have a lot of fun with it.
