A few years ago, I saw people posting about how they had written “fan mail” to their favorite Disney character and received a signed 8×10 photo! I had big plans of writing in myself to get an autographed photo of Mickey to hang on my wall (yes, MY wall, not my kids’,) but I just kept putting it off. Well I put it off a little too long because they no longer send the 8×10 photos, BUT they do send signed picture post cards in response.
The other week, I sat down with two of my girls and had them pick their favorite Disney character to write to. My six year old, Morgan, wrote her own letter to Princess Aurora, while my three year old, Mikayla, dictated her letter to Cinderella to me and then traced her name at the end. Here are there letters, just because I thought they were adorable.
By the way…the ‘horse” she is talking about in her letter is a horse on King Arthur’s carousel. *I corrected the spelling of Aurora on Morgan’s card before I mailed it off just in case the Disney Princesses weren’t sure who she was referring to when they received her letter.
For about 3 weeks, Mikayla asked me day in and day out when she was going to hear back from Cinderella. She was so excited to get something in the mail, let alone that it was getting something from her favorite princess! Finally, the day came and we got the post card in the mail. Unfortunately, we only got the one for Mikayla which made for a rough evening for Morgan, but the card for her came two days later. They were each so excited! Morgan was a little confused because they each received a letter from “Cinderella and my royal friends” when she had written to Aurora, but she was happy enough to receive a card with a picture of all of the princesses on it.
It was definitely a fun experience for the kids and I also liked it because it had my oldest practicing her letter writing skills. I always love when something Disney related can merge in with education like that!
