Mickey looks like he’s ready for some rest and relaxation in this groovy resort room. But what matter is so urgent that he’s taking calls while on vacation? Is he arranging a date with Minnie, or ordering up some cheese from Room Service? You tell me. Go ahead and “Caption This”!

  • Roomservice Please……Yes it is, thank you so much. Could you possibly send up some extra Q tips?

  • I wish I could carry a phone with me wherever I go. But that’s impossible, even for the Imagineers!

  • “Hi this is Mickey Mouse. I am calling in personal for my shift today from 9am until 12am everywhere in Walt Disney World.”

  • -In voice of Lady GaGa-

  • “Good morning folks! This is your 8 am wake up call! See you in the park. Gosh it’s going to be a fun day!” … Whew, glad they didn’t ask for a 6 am call!

  • “We’ve traced the call. It’s coming from somewhere inside the hotel room.”

  • “Goofy, what did you say? I told you to wait until I moved the phone to my ear.”

  • “Sir, you might want to send a maintenance man over to that office across the way. The lights are off and they must be lookin’ for a fuse box or something ’cause them flashlights they’re keeping me awake. Thank you. Goodnight.”

  • “Hello, Mr. President…I need to talk to you about the state of the economy and its effect on the travel and tourism industry.”

  • Where can I find a character experience with Donald Duck?

  • My smile belies the fact that I’m getting tired of recording these personalized wake-up calls.
