【tdr0005】Little-known utilization of mailboxes in Disneyland/DisneySea


Did you know that there are 10 mailboxes each in Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea?

If you mail a postcard in either of them, the card will be postmarked with a Disney stamp. So, many people mail a card to themselves, their family, their relatives, etc. in commemoration of the visit to Disneyland/DisneySea. It’s pretty cool to receive a mail later as a memento, isn’t it?

However, it is little known that a postcard mailed from Disneyland/DisneySea can also be used for something else.

That ‘something’ is application for prize competition. It may sound unrealistic, but the postcards mailed in Disneyland/DisneySea have a higher probability of winning than those posted in normal mailboxes. Though there is no clear reason for the higher rate, some say it may be due to the eye-catching Disney stamp.

It is imaginable that the postcards with a Disney stamp attract the eyes of those who choose the winner. They may be impressed by the fact that the person bothered to mail it from Disneyland/DisneySea.

Another way of using the mailboxes in Disneyland/DisneySea is to post New Year’s greeting cards (“Nenga-jo” in Japanese). When a Nenga-jo is posted in the mailbox in Disneyland/DisneySea at the end of the year, it will be postmarked with a stamp which has Disney characters representing the zodiac animal sign of the year. It would be a perfect greeting to Disney fans!

On your next visit to Disney Parks, why don’t you bring a postcard to mail it there?
