    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.

    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?

    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!
