Coronavirus may have taken Disney parks from us, but nothing will take our Disney spirit. Whether you’ve had your trip cancelled, or are just bummed even the opportunity to go in the foreseeable future is gone, there are so many ways to celebrate the Disney magic from home!

Watch your favourite films on Disney+

Disney+ couldn’t have landed in the UK at a better time! While they’ve slowed down streaming speeds, you can still enjoy your favourite classics as well as some original content. More and more is being added every day – in the US, Frozen 2 has just been added, and Onward isn’t far behind. 3 new Disneynature movies have just been added to celebrate Earth Month, including Dolphin Reef, narrated by Natalie Portman, Elephant, narrated by Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, and Penguins.

If you’re not a Disney+ member yet, why not?! Subscribe here, and start streaming like the rest of us.

Enjoy your favourite rides from your living room

Having ride withdrawals? All over Youtube, there are ride-a-longs of your favourite Disney rides, from It’s a Small World to Thunder Mountain and more. Try it in VR for the best effects, or just watch from your phone or TV. Here are some of our favourites:

It’s a Small World
Rise of the Resistance
Frozen Ever After
Splash Mountain

There are so many more to choose from across the platform; just type your favourite ride + POV and you’ll find some great ones.

Disney have even released their own footage of the new ‘Magic Happens’ parade!

Hold a Disney sing-a-long

You can do this on your own, or this is a great way to connect with your friends while social distancing over video chat. Even if you don’t know all the words, it’s fun to try, right? Grab yourself a Disney CD or play your Disney Spotify playlist in the background and enjoy! Maybe even get dressed up as your favourite character.


Disneybounding is a great way to dress up and enjoy your favourite characters without paying out for a fancy dress costume. You probably already have everything you need in your wardrobe already! While children are encouraged to come to the parks dressed as their favourite characters, for obvious reasons, adults aren’t allowed. However, fans have managed to get around this by creating character-inspired outfits instead, called Disneybounds. Here are some of our fans showing off their bounds:
