Magical Moments at the Animal Kingdom


Caroline holding Pocahontas’ letter box

On Discovery Island at the Animal Kingdom, a lot of Magical Moments involve writing a letter to Pocahontas or Mickey Mouse.  The guests write to Pocahontas at Island Mercantile or they can send a letter Mickey Mouse at Outfitters.


Inside Pocahontas’ letter box.

Pocahontas doesn’t have a mailbox because she is a free spirit and constantly moves around.  We leave out the  wodden box and her forest friends tell her when she needs to check it for a letter from a guest.  At Outfitters, Mickey Mouse has an actual mailbox for guests to send him a letter.

This is a great way to start a conversation with super cute kids, many visiting the Animal Kingdom for the first time!

I like doing Magical Moments involvong the Pocahontas’ mail because you can only meet Pocahontas at Animal Kingdom, and it creates some magic for our guests. 🙂

I got to see a Magical Moment this morning when a little girl dressed as Pocahontas got to actually meet the real Pocahontas and together they raised the flag at Camp Mickey Minnie! OMG, she was so cute!  And, so excited to meet Pocahontas in person!

I gave her a Magical Moment card saying:  I met Pocahontas today!
