If you send a birth annoucement to the White House…

If you send a birth announcement to the White house and Disneyland….
You might just get something back

I saw a blog called North Carolina Charm and saw where she sent a wedding invitation to the president and got a congratulations letter back.


How neat is that? Only problem was. I have been married 5 years. soo..


I tried sending my newborn sons birth announcement to see if I would get something back


I wrote a little note on the back of his announcement.


and sent it to the following address.
About 6 weeks later. We got this in the mail

What a GREAT addition to his baby book!

Upon further research after I originally posted this on my blog. I came to find out that you can get mail from the White House for a variety of occasions. Please view this link to get formal instructions on how to get greetings from the White House.
I was disappointed to see that receiving a Christmas card was not something the White House does.  Perhaps I will give it a try for Christmas 2012.


I received messages from my readers that you can send Birth announcements to Disney World and the Pope.  I sent the Pope my son’s birth announcement back in December and still have not gotten anything that ( I am updating this April 2012

I did send a Birth announcement to Disneyland, and received this back. I sent mine to the Disney in California. but you can send your Disney announcement to either of the following addresses.


Mickey and Minnie Mouse Walt Disney World 1675 N Buena Vista Dr Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830 

or Mickey and Minnie Mouse The Walt Disney Company 500 South Buena Vista Street Burbank, California 91521

Good Luck!

  5. I wish I had known about this sooner! I wish i could have gotten this for my little one. do you think disney will send for a regular birthday event? my little one is having a disney themed party this year…but it isn’t her birth year.

    • I think I saw something on Pinterest- that you can write a letter to a disney character and get a letter back. Use the pinterest search tool!!!

  6. This is cool, but hate to burst your bubble: an intern in the White House correspondence office sends these out (thanks to automated signatures). The president never sees them. Just an FYI for all those who think they’re really getting a personalized message from the president.

    Was the announcement, the president sent to you dated at all?

  8. you also mentioned we can send an announcement to the pope. Do you have an address?

  9. Wonder if you could address it to Cinderella and Prince Charming instead of Mickey and Minnie?

  10. anyone try sending a baby announcement to sesame street?

  11. Thanks so much! Gives baby number 3 something special that the other 2 don’t have. A big change from all the hand-me-downs around here!

  12. I'm due in 3 weeks. I can't wait to send my birth announcement to President and Mrs. Obama. This letter will be a great keepsake for the baby book!!

  14. This is a great idea! I actually thought that the president would never care about something like that. Thank you so much for sharing. I am glad that Disney actually responded. It makes a great addition to any baby book.
