    Was wondering if Disney still sends out the thank you sketch cards in the mail after staying on site? We have been back from our last vacation since September and have not received one this time.

    Hey! Reynaldo, and welcome to the planDisney. I am so glad you stopped by to join the jamboree.

    It warms my heart that you are still thinking about your pixie-dusted Disney adventure from September 2022. In my house, we are either reminiscing about or planning our next magical Disney vacation.

    With the hustle and bustle of our days and the daily volume of emails, I love getting a magical package from Walt Disney World Resort. The return address printed on the envelope returns me to Neverland on Peter Pan's flight or riding on an ikran (banshee) in Avatar Flight of Passage at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. When those envelopes contain sketches by illustrator Don "Ducky" Williams it is even more magical. In my personal collection, hanging on the wall, are sketches of Dumbo, Minnie Mouse, and the big cheese himself, Mickey Mouse.

    I have stayed on Disney property three to six times each year over the past three years and have not received a sketch since 2019. Unfortuantely, when I spoke with a cast member to confirm my suspicions, they revealed that these "thank you" sketches are no longer being sent. Let's wish upon a star that Walt Disney World Resort brings back this little bit of magic in 2023.

    planDisney Pro Tip: Here are some ways to bring home your Disney vacation. We have collected, used, and displayed many Disney items from our vacations over the years. From Joffrey's Disney brand coffee and H20 bath products to artwork and t-shirts, there is something that keeps us reminded of our magical vacations. The best, however, is when we upload our Disney PhotoPass Service photos into our digital picture frame. Be sure to purchase a Memory Maker on your next visit. Seeing those images change from one experience to the next is enchanting.

    If you have any other questions for planDisney to help with a future or past Disney vacation, please feel free to ask me

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
