Call this hotline and Mickey (and friends) will tell your kid it's time for bed

When it's late and your little one just won't settle down, a bedtime reminder from their favourite Disney pal may be the perfect solution.

When it comes time to tell your little one to get ready for bed, it can feel like they've suddenly thrown on an imaginary pair of noise-cancelling headphones. No matter how hard you try, they just won't listen to you. However, maybe they'll listen to someone else—their favourite Disney characters perhaps?

Disney just launched its new Disney Sleep Shop, an online shopping hub to get everything you need to add magic to your kid's bedtime routine. The best part? To celebrate the launch, they set up a special good night hotline featuring messages from Mickey and his pals. Take a look:

All you have to do is call 1-877-7-MICKEY and follow the instructions to hear a message from Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy or Goofy gently telling your kid that it's time to head off to bed. We love that Mickey and Minnie's message includes a reminder for your little ones to brush their teeth and how Goofy's has a cute challenge to see who can get to sleep the fastest after they hang up the call.

If you're choosing Donald, though, be warned that his message is pretty incomprehensible (but who knows, maybe your kid will be able to understand what he's saying). No matter who your kid chooses, here's hoping these cute messages help them get the picture that the day is done and it's time to get some rest—goodness knows you need it.

Sadly, the hotline is only available until August 31, 2018, so take advantage of it while you still can!

Bonus tip: Take a recording of your kid's favourite message so you can use as part of your bedtime routine well into the school year.
