Disney is helping kids ease into a new school year with a little magic. After a successful launch last year, the Disney Store is bringing back its sleep hotline for the back-to-school season. The service allows little ones to hear bedtime messages from Mickey, Woody, Princess Jasmine, Queen Elsa and Princess Anna, Yoda, and Spider-Man.
Available at 1-877-7-MICKEY, the hotline will only be open for a limited time from Sept. 16 through Sept. 30. The hope is that it will help kids get acclimated to their new, earlier bedtimes following the likely looser bedtime routines they might have had in the Summer.
Upon calling, parents are prompted with a menu that allows you to choose which classic character your child would like to hear from. It's a substantial message, too! If you select to hear from Jasmine, for example, she'll tell you about her walk in the marketplace with Aladdin, while Woody will detail the nighttime routine he rushes to finish before his owner gets back.
The hotline has generated so much buzz, in fact, that it was even mentioned during a taping of Jimmy Kimmel Live! with Kristen Bell last year. At the time, the Frozen actress's Princess Anna was not included in the sleep hotline, so the late-night host had her record her own bedtime message. Let's just say it went a little differently than the messages you might find on the hotline.
