Naturally being on vacation you'll
probably want to tell everyone about your trip whether it's in the
form of a letter or the classic 'Wish you were here' post card.
This section will try to give you some direction in this matter.
Postcards can be found almost anywhere, in the area grocery stores,
gift shops and even your own hotel might provide you with a
complimentary one in your room. Or simply ask for one at the Front
Desk (Some hotels won't offer this, but for the ones that do, it's a

Post Office Locations
If you are within 5 miles East or West of Interstate 4, the closest
Post Office is in the City of Celebration just east of the
Interstate. Use 'Water Mania' as your landmark and turn the opposite
way (South) onto Celebration Ave. Follow for a mile or two and
you're there !
If staying near the Wal-Mart Super Centre on US Hwy 192 or if you're
located in the Vine Street vicinity, our best recommendation is the
Oak Street Post Office.
Just follow West Vine until John Young Parkway (a.k.a. Bermuda Ave),
go south to the next traffic light and use 'PK Chicken Wings' as
your landmark. Turn right onto Oak Street and the Post Office is on
your right after one-block.
For our visitors on east end of US Hwy 192 (Florida Turnpike Area),
your closest Post Office is located on Michigan Ave.
If you're heading towards Disney, it's just a short diversion
Turn right when you see the Winn-Dixie store on the right-hand side,
then follow Michigan Ave for several blocks. The Post Office will be
found on your immediate left after about a half-mile.
Special Note and Special Bonus for those staying in the
Florida Turnpike area: If you were to continue another half-mile or
so to the end of Michigan Ave, a brand new Wal-Mart Super Centre can
now be found at the Junctions of Osceola Parkway and Michigan Ave.
