    On our last Disney vacation-cruise. we received a call from Minney and Mickey. We are coming to WDW tomorrow morning. How do a book a call from Minney for tomorrow?

    Hi Renee!

    Welcome to planDisney! You are thinking of all the right touches to sprinkle your Walt Disney World vacation with pixie dust. And you arrive TOMORROW, so let me get you an answer before it strikes midnight!

    You have such a great idea to schedule a character call as the perfect surprise for your family. After using all my Fairy Godmother skills, I found out that Disney is unfortunately not offering these character calls. Back in April, there was a special Disney Bedtime Hotline where you could arrange such a magical phone call. And you are correct that Disney Cruise Line did offer character calls for Guests setting sail with Captain Mickey. Perhaps these character calls will be reintroduced in the coming months...I'll get on the phone and let Mickey and Minnie know that we want these back!

    But with a little ingenuity, you can totally make this work! Each of these calls from Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald Duck and Daisy Duck are available on Youtube with a quick search (use Disney Bedtime Hotline to find them). Then if you have a computer and a phone in a separate room, dial your mobile phone and let your child answer. Play the pre-recorded message from the other room, and voila! You’ve made the character call happen for your little one!

    Since we're talking characters, be sure to find Minnie Mouse during one of the many Character Cavalcades in all the parks. For example, during the “Mickey and Pals Cavalcade” at Magic Kingdom, the Fab 5 (Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald, and Pluto) wave to Guests and engage with them while making pop-up appearances along the parade route in the park. 

    Renee, since your vacation starts tomorrow, go have fun! And in the future, feel free to pop over to planDisney with more questions.

    SEA ya real soon!
