Yes you could do it with Skype most definitely if both ends have Skype. It has been so long since I have used Skype I don't remember if you can call a regular phone or not, but if you could there may be a charge.

Can't help you much with free calling but I do know that you can email a wicked neat post card from Innoventions. :yes:

The thing is though that to use Skype you need internet access and as far as I know that ISN'T free at most Disney resorts.

Wish it was - it would make it very economical to keep in touch! :(

I think it's $10 (give or take) per day to use the internet at WDW? :unsure:

It is, Tink. Actually, for 24 continuous hours of use. If you plan it well, you can use it over two days. I've done that to minimize the cost for business use. I was able to upload the data I needed for two days, skip a day, then do three more days--five days of data for the cost of two!

What can I say? I'm frugal, even on someone else's dime! :rolleyes:
