The USPS “Art of Disney” series started in 2004 with the “Friendship” series. “The Art of Disney” stamp series included Friendship (2004), Celebration (2005), Romance (2006), Magic (2007) and Imagination (2008).  52.8 million Celebration stamp sets were sold before they were retired. After several years without Disney USPS stamp options in 2011 the USPS and Disney/Pixar released “Send a Hello” and in 2012 “Mail a Smile”. Both have been retired.

“The Disney relationship with the U.S. Postal Service began in the summer of 1918 when Walt Disney sorted and delivered mail in the Chicago Post Office. Next, Mickey Mouse worked for the Post Office when he starred in the 1933 animated short “Mail Pilot.” The achievements of Walt Disney were first recognized on a stamp in 1968. On the stamp, a parade of children, hand-in-hand, appear from a tiny castle to surround a portrait of Walt Disney. The children, representing many nations of the world, are garbed in national costumes” (USPS.com)

Some select collectible items from “The Art of Disney” and Disney/Pixar are still available on USPS.com

Michele is a life long Disney fan, and has two sons who have followed suit, each going on their first Disney trip before their first birthday’s. Part of the goal Michele has for The Main Street Mouse is not only to keep members informed, but to create somewhat of a Disney Family by relating to others through personal experiences and opinions. Also, Michele is making it a priority to share stories of inspiration and hope to other Disney Fans in an effort to share the Magic and hopefully make a difference in the lives of others. ~ I enjoy writing personal perspective blogs, doing TMSM Meet Ups for our readers, and keeping the constant interaction going with others, sharing the Disney Magic to people when they can’t be at their Happy Place.
