Disney Enchanted Calls


Did you know you can have a Disney character call your child for only $2.49?  I had no idea!  KK, C-man's grandmother told me about it today.  I have the mailing address to get a character to mail your child a postcard/ letter (however, I've never actually done it so I don't know if it really works), but I have never heard of the phone call.  While on vacation at Walt Disney World, we always schedule a wake up call, even if we don't need it, to see which character will call, but that's free! :)

If you want a character to call your child at home all you have to do is this:
Visit The Disney Enchanted Calls web site.
1. Choose a character from the list (Ariel, Mulan, Cinderella, Snow White, Jasmine, Aurora, Bell, Pocahontas, Pooh, Mickey or Tigger)
2. Choose a theme (Congratulations, Good Night, Birthday Greeting, Holiday Greeting, Encouragement, or Good Morning)
3. Use the drop down menu to personalize the message.
4. Schedule the call with the date, time and location.  I'll assume you enter your phone number and credit card info at this time! :)

What a fun idea... if your child likes one of these characters!  Too bad Buzz and Woody aren't on this list.  We aren't fans Pooh or the Princesses at our house.  Mickey would be a hit, but not like Buzz or Woody!

Have you ever done the Enchanted Call?  What was your experience like?  I'd love to hear!!

  1. It does work. A mom I work with had Mickey call her little boy and he loved it!

  4. We've scheduled Goofy to call the night before we leave for our cruise this weekend. If you are going on a cruise there is a link through your reservation and the call is free.

  5. This is such a great idea! We haven't done it, but plan on doing it sometime before our next trip. If you are a member of Disney Movie Rewards, then you can get a 4pack of these calls for just a few points!

  12. On the night of Pre-K graduation we had Mickey call the house and tell my son what a great job he had done in school. Mickey also told him that his parents were so proud of him. It was a hit!

  14. I took advantage of these calls for my granddaughter on her 3rd Birthday last summer. She was SO excited! On her birthday I had Mickey call her and on the day of her party Woody called her to wish her a Happy Birthday and fun party. She had a Toy Story 3 party so Woody was a big hit and extra special touch. I'm planning to do it again this year for her 4th birthday. I highly recommend these calls to everyone. Have the video ready!

    I've done the Calls before for my son's 8th  birthday! He loved it! If you have disney movie rewards, then you can get a free call!

  17. I ordered a call for my daughter and we never received. All I got was an email saying the call was unsuccessful. What a disappointment, especially since I told her she was going to get a call from someone special and waited all day! A waste of money since they do not leave a message or callback, how hard is it for an automated system to redial?
