“Laughter is timeless, imagination has no age, dreams are forever.” Walt Disney

If there was ever a time for a bit of Disney magic it is now. To say life is stressful would be the understatement of the decade (and we only started this decade). When you are in need of a distraction, a little bit of entertainment, a dose of magic, we recommend trying some Disney Magic at Home.

While the Disney Parks around the world are closed, the Disney Parks blog doling out a daily dose of virtual pixie dust to bring us moments from the happiest place on earth. Create little moments of your own Disney Magic at Home whenever you need to escape.


Some of our favourite snacks are from Disney Parks. I know that eating a Dole Whip in my living room won’t be the same as enjoying that cool, creamy delight with the excitement of Adventureland all around me, but I’ll take it! We’ve already made the Disney Gumbo (so delicious). And I must admit I haven’t told my family that the churro recipe is available; I may be the only person on the face of the planet who can’t stand the smell of donuts.

And Fun!

Disney has some wonderful online activities out there right now. My eldest son thoroughly enjoyed exploring the Imagineering in a Box program; it’s great for older kids who want to design and create. There are Disney storytimes, drawing lessons, and lots more, too.

Don your princess dresses and your Marvel superhero might. Channel both your resourcefulness and your whimsy. Who knows what’s around the corner? But we’re safe at home and on my next grocery store adventure, I will be buying the ingredients to make a Dole Whip and churro bites and then curling up on the couch to watch the Magic Happens parade!

While you’re virtually on vacation, check out some other attractions in Orlando!
