Your Disney-Obsessed Kid Can Hear Messages From Their Favorite Princesses on Disney’s New Hotline
Thanks to their boundless imaginations—and general ignorance about what’s real and what’s fiction—toddlers are pretty happy to have a completely fake, one-sided conversation with their favorite Disney princess on the nearest phone (or any object even vaguely shaped like a phone).
So you can imagine their ecstasy if said princess spoke aloud from the other side of the line. Actually, you don’t have to imagine it. As Simplemost reports, shopDisney has set up an Ultimate Princess Hotline that people can call to listen to messages from Ariel (The Little Mermaid), Belle (Beauty and the Beast), Jasmine (Aladdin), Moana (Moana), and Tiana (The Princess and the Frog).
The 11-digit number is 877-70-DISNEY (877-703-47639). After you dial, an operator will tell you which single digit to press to unlock each character’s message. Then, just sit back and smile as you watch your kid’s eyes bug out when they hear Belle tell them how falling in love with the Beast helped her learn never to judge a book by its cover. Each recording carries a similar life lesson themed to match its corresponding protagonist’s story: Tiana imparts how hard work and perseverance helped her achieve her dream of opening a restaurant; Moana talks about facing her fear of leaving her island in order to save it; and so on.
For anyone asked to get Frozen’s Anna or Elsa on the phone, there’s a message from each on this special landing page—which you can open on a mobile browser if the kid in question is young enough to be tricked into believing that it’s a phone call.
The hotline is part of Disney’s inaugural World Princess Week, from August 23 through August 29, so you only have a few more days to take advantage of it. You can learn more about other events and initiatives happening during World Princess Week here.
