    We were recently at Epcot and spent significant time with our kids (ages 7, 5, 2) completing the KidCot stops. Unfortunately, a tremendous lightning storm began, and we missed ONE country. Is there any chance we can obtain two Canada Kidcot cards?

    Hiya, Andrea! You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney. Thank you so much for stopping by with your excellent question today!

    After speaking with a couple of Cast Members, I am deeply saddened to let you know that the Walt Disney World Resort isn't mailing Kidcot Fun Stops cards at this time. I understand just how frustrating this must be, especially since your kids only missed ONE card! Now, since you won't be able to receive the card itself, why don't you create one with your kids?

    To create a DIY Kidcot card, you will need the following materials:

    1. One 5" by 3.5" cardboard cutout
    2. A ruler
    3. Markers (especially a red one for the Canadian flag!)
    4. Crayons
    5. A pen
    First, you should start by creating your margins. The margins on the Kidcot cards are about a quarter of an inch long, but you're welcome to get as creative as you'd like! Once you're done with this, fill in your margins using your favorite crayons, and then write CANADA with a red marker at the very top of the card, but below the margin! Now, take your pen and write the following (super interesting!) information about this beautiful country:

    The Great White North
    Goofy has rustled up his own meal in the Great White North –– and it looks like he has a hungry dinner guest. But not to worry! Even though grizzlies are known for hunting fish, these bears eat just as many plants, nuts, and berries. 

    Capital City: Ottawa

    Once you're done with that, write "Make a new friend in Canada!" and draw a big rectangle at the bottom of your card. Now, simply head on over to my friend Ariane's profile, read through her entire autobiography...and voilà! There's your new friend from Canada (and she's the best!). When you're done reading, go ahead and draw the Canadian flag in the rectangle that you created. Remember that red goes first, then white, and then red again. And don't forget the beautifully symmetrical red maple leaf right in the middle!

    Last but definitely not least, let's move on to the other side of the card! The original Canada Kidcot cards have a cool drawing of Goofy camping and preparing a yummy meal in the woods. He is sitting by three Canadian totem poles, and there's a hungry (but super friendly!) bear hiding behind the tallest totem pole. Even though you don't have the exact image, this is where you'll be able to let your imagination fly. Simply use my description to create your very own drawing!

    Andrea, I know that this wasn't the news that you were expecting to hear, but I truly hope that you and your kids have tons of fun creating cards of your own, at least until you're able to come back to the World Showcase to finish your collection! Remember, next time, simply start in Canada... although I do applaud the fact that you started in Mexico the first time. I am quite partial to my own country for sure!

    If you have any other questions, you know exactly where to find us. Until then,

    Stay magical!
