Taking a stroll around my local Target store today on my lunch break, I came across an end cap with an interesting message:
Now, since I have become pretty immersed in the idea of interactive and mobile technologies in my graduate school classes, this proposition not only appealed to my tech geek side, but of course, my Disney Dork side :) Naturally, I had to see what it was all about, so I whipped out my iPhone and texted as directed.
Right after sending ‘PRINCESS’ to 33992, I received a message back that asked what Princess I’d like to have call me! The choices were (1) Merida (2)Rapunzel and (3) Cinderella. For my first try (yes, I would eventually try all three) I chose Rapunzel, so sent ‘2’ as my choice.
After confirming that Rapunzel was my choice, I received another message; this one asking when I’d like the call, with the options presented of (1) for five minutes from NOW, (2) for one hour from NOW and (3) for two hours from NOW. Since I was about to head back to work, I opted for (2).
Since I utilize Google Voice (I forward my cell to my desk phone, which I answer with a headset) I was able to receive my Princess call (that came in under the phone number 877-402-0169) without everyone in the office knowing what I was doing.
The messages are really fun and, aside from the potential text message charge from your cell provider (I have unlimited) totally free! It was a fun little perk to my day and I wanted to share it with all of you! So, whether you’re a Disney Princess at heart, a parent or family member that knows a special little Princess or just looking for fun ways to pump yourself up for your next Disney vacation, why not schedule a call with a Princess today?!
What Disney character would you call if you had the option?
