Bring the Disney World magic home for the summer!
Thanks to Disney World magic, Orlando’s most popular theme park enjoys an average of approximately five million visitors every month. This means that since the COVID-19 virus caused it to shut down, as many as 10 million people – and possibly more by the time you read this – have been forced to cancel their Disney World tours and vacation plans.
There hasn’t been an announcement as to when theme parks will reopen completely, but you can definitely relive the wonder of Disney World at home while everyone waits out the virus. Here are a few quick tips that will help you keep the magic alive:
Binge Movies on Disney Plus
With so many Disney movies and TV shows out there, how can you resist signing up for Disney Plus? The streaming service just launched last year, and given the current situation, it was great timing. From classic films to modern wonders, there are thousands of selections from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilm, and more. It will be almost impossible for you and your children to run out of things to watch.
Prep Yourself with Ride Videos
No virtual experience can replace the exhilaration and pure joy that comes from Disney World rides. However, this is a fantastic way to stay hyped for the park and to show your kids that these rides aren’t going anywhere. Plus, one advantage of watching rides on sites like YouTube is that you will often see details that you had missed before and can then look for them once you’ve gotten to the park.
Have a Disney Dress-Up Day
If you have young children and are having difficulty keeping them entertained while shelter-in-place orders are in effect, then you should definitely consider a Disney dress-up day. There’s really no reason to go out and purchase a bunch of costumes to make this happen, because there are plenty of clothes available in the average wardrobe that will serve as a makeshift prince outfit, princess dress, or maybe even a villain or two. And don’t be afraid to join in on the fun – your kids will love it!
Start Planning Your Vacation
Even though Disney World is currently closed, this doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t start making Disney World magic plans. If you haven’t already downloaded the My Disney Experience app, do yourself a favor and get it. This app has a full map to Disney World, which will allow you to plan a basic itinerary for your next trip. This app works perfectly in conjunction with Disney world tours that provide you with perks that you can’t get anywhere else. And once you arrive at the park, you can use the app to check on the wait times of each ride throughout the day.
Make a Disney World Food
Perhaps you won’t be able to perfectly duplicate Disney World food at home, but you can certainly try. The Disney fan club has released quite a few Disney World recipes over the last several years, so start there. Due to the pandemic, Dole released the recipe for their famous Dole Whip, which we’ve put on our list of favorites in previous discussions. Disney itself has released the recipe for mini churros, so bake up some of them, too! Any of these foods will definitely keep the Disney World Magic going until your next visit.
