My son's second birthday is quickly approaching (tomorrow!!) and it's been said that when you have kids, you have the opportunity to re-live your childhood through them. That is so very true. I'm not sure that my son will be as excited as my husband and I are because he's still pretty young, but John will be getting a call post card from Mickey on his birthday.

John has recently discovered Mickey's Playhouse and knows just who Mickey is. He loves to walk around and say "hot dah" ("hot dog") and "ooles" ("toodles").  I think the most adorable thing is when John says those words and then claps his hands and says "a job, a job" which is his way of saying "good job."  I love to watch his little face light up with joy and his tiny feet pitter, patter around the house.

The best thing about the autographed postcard from Mickey? My husband and I didn't have to pay a penny for it. Now, while we requested an autographed postcard from Mickey and got it, from what I understand, your little one may or may not receive an autograph from the specific character they write to. They will receive an autograph, but it's kind of like a grab-bag surprise to see which character will write back. It’s still worth a try, right?

Have your child write a letter about anything they want and send it to:

Walt Disney Company
Attn: Fan Mail Department
500 South Buena Vista Street
Burbank, CA 91521

Or to:

Walt Disney World Communications
P.O. Box 10040
Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830-0040

Your autograph should arrive within 4-8 weeks and if you have more than one kid in your house who's in love with a Disney character, you can send multiple letters. Just send them each in their own envelope instead of all together in one packet.
