Call from a Disney Princess!

Taking a stroll around my local Target store today on my lunch break, I came across an end cap with an interesting message:

RapunzelCall

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?

    • LOL! I like how you think, Alison! Maybe Rapunzel’s prince, Flynn Rider! Or Aladdin, maybe?! ;)

  1. This is adorbs. My sister used to have me call my niece and nephew all the time and pretend I was an array of Disney Princesses. I have Cinderella, Ariel, Snow White, Belle, Jasmine, and Princess Aurora in my repertoire. The kids would ask me the cutest questions. Once when I was Ariel, they invited me to their new house (after they moved from Chicago to a coastal New England town) and said Sebastian and Flounder could come too because it was near the ocean. So cute. They’d ask me to sing for them (thank goodness for being a singer!) and I’d tell them I was SO excited to see them the next time they came to WDW. BEST memories. They still have no idea it was me :)

    • Karla, that is totally awesome! What a neat memory you created for them! I love it – and your secret is safe with me!! :D

  2. Brilliant! Had to try these tonight with my kiddos. Even my Mr, Skeptical got excited on the Rapunzel call. We did all three also and they were such a hit. My son even said during Cinderella’s little message, “I think they have been spying on us.” lol Thanks for sharing this.

  3. Thanks for the heads up! I just requested a call from Merida during my lunch break today! Also, on this last birthday (Jan 1 of this year), Walt arranged for me to get phone call from Mickey with a special birthday message. It was so much fun!

  4. Love this!!! And definitely a great pick me up! Hmmm, I think I’d choose Merida (but eventually have all of them call me).

  5. I could not make it work for anything! I tried everything I could! Can anybody give me some solutions!
