If you’ve strolled through the World Showcase at Epcot, you’ve no doubt seen the bright red phone booths in the United Kingdom and Canada pavilions. Maybe you even have a souvenir photo from when you tried to see how many people can fit into one booth. But did you know that those phones really work? You can’t use them to make a call but you can call into them.
It can be a lot of fun to surprise an unsuspecting guest with a call, whether you’re dialing from home or from the patio of Rose and Crown. All those old phone pranks are coming to mind now, aren’t they? Wouldn’t it be fun to impersonate a character and get someone to do something funny? “Hello, this is Mary Poppins. Do you know the song Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious? Oh good – you simply must sing it with me right now, as loud as you can. Here we go… ” Or just have a nice chat with whoever answers about what they’ve been up to at Walt Disney World and live vicariously through them.
Here are the numbers in case you need a little Epcot diversion today. When you reach someone, be sure to share your stories in the comments below. I’d love to hear about the conversations that ensued.
- Canada: 407-827-9884

Note: I heard that these numbers have changed so I checked on August 8, 2013 and, indeed, they have. Unfortunately, I do not know the new numbers. If you discover them, please let me know so I can update this post. ~ Barrie
