That’s right, you can send mail right from the Magic Kingdom. I heard about this, but never sent anything until my last trip.
Since I was in Disney with friends, I thought it would be fun to send the kids a post card from Mickey right from the Magic Kingdom. So when I was leaving the park I headed to the Newsstand, which is located right outside the entrance to Magic Kingdom, to buy a postcard to mail.
The Newsstand has lots of items available that you might need for spending a day at Magic Kingdom. They have snacks, autograph books, pens, drinks, and more. I needed a memory card for my camera and was able to find one there. Granted it was more expensive than if I had bought it elsewhere, but I needed to the card so I could take pictures for the website and didn’t have time to run around comparing prices.
While I was checking out, I asked the cast member if she would mind if I wrote out the card while I was there. She was so nice and offered the side of the counter for me to write the postcard. She also asked me if I would like a special Magic Kingdom stamp. I knew you could mail a postcard from the Magic Kingdom, but I didn’t know you could get a special stamp. The kids would be so excited when they saw that! So she stamped the postcard and I put the stamp on it (they also sell stamps) and walked over to the mailbox.
The mailbox is an old turn-of-the-century mailbox and is located right outside the Newsstand. You have probably walked past it a bunch of times when going to the Magic Kingdom and might not have noticed it, but it’s there.
I have to say, sending mail isn’t usually something I would consider to be a fun activity, but mailing something from that old mailbox from the Magic Kingdom was pretty fun. Plus, I was home when the postcard arrived and was able the excitement my kids had when they saw it.
I definitely recommend getting the stamp if you mail something from the Magic Kingdom. It adds a little extra magic to the mail.
Have you ever mailed anything from the Magic Kingdom?
