Disney's New Sleep Hotline Lets Mickey Tell Your Kids When It's Time for Bed
If lullabies and bedtime stories simply aren’t helping your little one wind down, you may want to get Mickey Mouse on the line. As spotted by CBS News, parents can now call up Disney and have Mickey—or one of his pals—share a brief bedtime message with your child.
Available through August 31, 2018, the toll-free hotline (1-877-7-MICKEY) lets parents choose from one of five characters, including Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Daisy, and Donald. Mickey, for instance, talks about brushing his teeth and reading to Pluto, while Daisy shares details about her day spent with her nieces.
The messages are pre-recorded, and while you can only hear from one character per call, you can call back as many times as you’d like to hear from the whole gang. It's open to people living in both the U.S. and Canada.
The hotline was launched in conjunction with Disney Sleep Shop’s latest sleepwear line, which is part of a larger push to make bedtime a little less stressful for parents and kids alike. One recent survey cited by Disney found that 77 percent of parents feel exhausted after trying to get their children to go to bed.
Hopefully, a little encouragement from their favorite Disney characters will do the trick.
