For years I had a tradition of mailing postcards back home when we were on a trip at Walt Disney World. Of course, now that I live next door, it’s a little different. This is a great souvenir idea, I mean who doesn’t enjoy getting a handwritten note in the mail? In the digital age, it may be hard to believe, but there are mailboxes that are scattered all across the resort. If you put a letter in one of these boxes they do get collected and sent off to the local post office! So if mailing something interests you for your next trip, here is how to mail letters from Walt Disney World.
Where to Get Stamps at Disney World
Popular in park locations that carry stamps are:
- Camera Center (Epcot)
- Oscar’s Super Service (Disney Hollywood Studios)
- The Outpost (Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park)
- Garden Gate Gifts (Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park)
- World Of Disney (Disney Springs area)
Plus the gift shops at the Disney Resorts sell stamps.
When you purchase your postcard just ask the cast member if they also have stamps at that location. If they don’t sell them or are out they will be able to point you in the direction of the nearest location that does!
Mailbox Locations at Disney World
Postcards and letters with postage already applied can be mailed from any mailbox located throughout the theme parks. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled if you are looking for a box inside the park, they are incredibly well themed. You can also mail things at the Front Desk of Walt Disney World Resort hotels.

- Instead of just sending a note, have a character autograph the postcard. That will thrill the recipient!

I have been visiting the parks annually since my parents first brought me at just a year old. Recently I was able to fulfill my life long dream of being a Florida local and moved from the wintery Northeast to the sunshine and fun of central Florida. Now I am hoping to share my Disney knowledge with you so you can have the best vacation possible!
