    Last spring when I visited WDW I signed up for text messages for my Sprint phone. I could text "meet mickey" and I would receive a text on where I could meet Mickey. How do I sign up for that again for my upcoming trip?

    Yo, Patsy! I'm having a hard time pinning down that information too. I know you used to be able to get text alerts of park information but those details appear to have been removed from the Disney website, perhaps due to the increased focus from Disney on how to access this kind of information two other ways:

    The first is through Disney's Mobile Magic app, which is available through a partnership with Verizon.

    The other is through the mobile Disney World website. If you don't have a Verizon-compatible phone to get Mobile Magic, you can access park hours, character greetings and entertainment schedules from the mobile Disney World website via the browser of your mobile phone at
