    How can I get a Disney character to call my son to tell him he’s going to Disney?

    Hey Howdy Hey, Stephanie, and welcome to planDisney!

    One of my favorite parts of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is the opportunity to say hello to my favorite characters (even as an adult)! While I just love the idea of being able to request a call before my next magical vacation, unfortunately, this option is not currently available for Walt Disney World Resort Guests. If you're shocked by this news and are thinking that you've heard of the service before, you likely have! Character Calls are currently available for Guests of Disney Cruise Line, so I encourage you to keep that in mind before you embark on your next magical sailing. 

    If you're hoping to treat your son to a bit of pixie dust before he arrives in The Most Magical Place on Earth, you might consider looking into "Hey Disney!". This Disney voice assistant powered by Alexa is not only found throughout Disney Resort hotels to provide helpful information pertaining to Walt Disney World Resort vacations, but it also has such fun interactive features that, when purchased for use in your home, will help you incorporate Disney magic into your daily routine. Through "Hey Disney!" beloved characters can serve as alarms, check the weather, tell you jokes, say 'hello', or (much to my delight) sing you 'Happy Birthday'! These delightful interactions could be such a fun way to way to hint to your son that he's headed to The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    While this is likely not the news you were hoping for, Stephanie, I do hope you find the other suggestions helpful. If you have any additional questions as you plan, don't hesitate to stop back by planDisney! We're always happy to help!
