    I have been told that I can arrange to have Mickey call my child and tell him of our plans. How can I arrange for this to happen?

    Hello Robert!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    My wife and I decided to surprise our children with a Walt Disney World Resort Vacation on the morning we left for the airport. We drove the kids to school and we interrupted by a call from Mickey Mouse asking if we could make it down for a vacation. The kids were beyond excited and we had started our Endlessly Magical Walt Disney World Vacation with a bang.

    Unfortunately, Walt Disney World Resort does not directly provide this service at this time. In order to pull off our surprise, I used a third-party voice-over service that focused on providing this sort of experience. Using this service made it possible for me to personalize our experience to the finest detail and interact with my children directly. Be wary of third-party vendors and look for established providers that you can trust.

    If you book a Disney Cruise, one of the experiences provided before you set sail is the opportunity to schedule a recorded call from Mickey Mouse (or another Disney Character) to your family to build anticipation for your trip.

    The Countdown to Fun Package available at the Disney Store Online is a series of boxes geared toward building anticipation for your Walt Disney World Vacation and includes scavenger hunts, specially selected-merchandise and character calls.  If you are looking for the most efficient approach to having a character call, the Countdown to Fun Package is the way to go.

    Have a Magical Experience before your Vacation!
