In August of 2018, Disney launched the Bedtime Hotline where a child could call 1-877-7-MICKEY and receive a special message from Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, or Goofy. Well, the special line is open again (through September 30, 2019) — this time with new voices! Along with the hotlines return, Disney is also launching the special Disney Bedtime Adventure Box (more details below).
Parents know that getting your little ones to sleep at a consistent time can be challenging from time to time. Consistent routines and focusing on slowing down leading up to bedtime are a good start, but maybe a phone message from one of their favorite characters could help jump-start (or reinforce their routine) and get them counting Bo Peep’s sheep a little sooner.
When a parent calls 877-7-MICKEY (877-764-2539), you’ll first be greeted by a message that asks if you’d like to receive a text message which links to the Disney Sleep Shop (a collection of pajamas, blankets, or plush to snuggle). If you would like a text message with a link to ShopDisney, Press 1 when prompted. Want to get right to the bedtime messages? Press 2 as soon as you dial in.
We’d recommend taking the call on speakerphone so you can enjoy listening to the message with your kids — it’s definitely a moment filled with smiles as our son loved this last year. Press the following buttons to hear messages from your favorite characters. (In case you were curious, there is only one message per character, so calling back multiple times and selecting the same character will play the same message.)
- 1 – Mickey Mouse
- 2 – Woody (Toy Story) – transcription of Woody’s message below.
- 3 – Princess Jasmine (Aladdin)
- 4 – Anna and Elsa (Frozen)
- 5 – Yoda (Star Wars)
- 6 – Spider-Man (Marvel)
TOY STORY PHONE MESSAGE
Hey Howdy Hey partner, it’s me, Woody. Now listen up, OK? It’s almost Bonnie’s bedtime which means it’s our bedtime too. We’ve got to be all tucked in and ready to sleep by the time she gets back, so let’s make sure the room is set, OK?
Alright. Nightlight on — check. All the toys in their places — check. Blankets and pillows ready — check. Alright, everything looks nice and cozy.
(Audio of Bonnie’s footsteps running towards the room.)
Ooh, Shh, here comes Bonnie. Goodnight partner and pleasant dreams.
How cute is that?! Check out even more messages from your favorite characters by calling back each night if you’d like. This is such a cute and fun family idea.
