Tip Tuesday: Mail from WDW

Mailbox on Main St. USA

Welcome to another Tip Tuesday!

This week, I wanted to pass along a quick tip about sharing the magic with those back at home. Along Main Street USA in the Magic Kingdom are a few mailboxes like the one pictured above. These are turn-of-the century (as in circa 1900) mailboxes on loan from the U.S. Postal Service. these are real mailboxes that you can use. What makes these such a nice touch is that the mail you send will be stamped as coming from "Walt Disney World."

What I find so impressive is, again, that attention to detail Disney shows in its parks. Main Street USA is themed as a turn-of-the-20th-century small town (somewhat modeled after Marceline, Missouri). Even something so small as a mailbox reflects that theme.

The next time you're sending a postcard, take a moment to appreciate a bit of Disney detail and try a mailbox on Main Street USA.

The other parks also have a postmark of some sort too. I use to mail all my Christmas cards from the DTD post office until they took it away. Now I take them to the parks.

thanks for a cool post! @ Believes in Fairies - how cool. Never thought of mailing our Christmas cards from WDW. We'll be there the first week of Dec this year - perfect timing! Thanks for the idea!!
