Many of us are trying to stay positive, find ways to make the most of staying at home, learn new ways to get things done and being creative in ways we may have never imagined possible. A lot of us are missing our ‘home’ Walt Disney World or Disneyland parks around the world and fans and families are creating their own “only Disney” moments in their daily lives. It is awesome how they have recreated their favorite attractions, posting photos and family memories, and sharing the fun they are having.
It has also inspired the way Disney is bringing content to us in new ways, from livestreamed Lunch Doodles with Mo Willems, to the virtual viewing of the “Magic Happens” parade from the Disneyland Resort, to singing along with the Dapper Dans. There’s even been drawing Olaf with Disney Animation and reading along with Disney talent for storytime! As a livestreamer myself, this is super exciting to see the many ways that we can all stay in touch with each other, encouraging one another through live streaming and Disney is blowing it out of the water!
Now they are sharing a fun way for kids, families and fans to access #DisneyMagicMoments like these, all in the comfort of your own home. Today Disney is launching www.DisneyMagicMoments.com, a website where you will find fun and engaging Disney content, stories and resources — for free! — from Marvel, Pixar, and Star Wars, to Walt Disney Animation Studios, National Geographic, Disney Parks and beyond.
And they have created a curated set of resources to spark imagination and share magic, all available when you visit this special page on the Disney Parks Blog. Here, you’ll find family-fun activities, online resources and more — LEARN & CREATE, FUN & PLAY and CARE & COMMUNITY.
Officially kicking off these #DisneyMagicMoments, gather around with your family and watch these two all-new videos. First up, a virtual ride-through of the timeless classic Disney Parks attraction, “it’s a small world,” a beloved favorite at many of our parks around the globe. It is a great reminder that ‘we are all in this together.’
Then, check out the JAMMitors, everyone’s favorite funky group of janitors-turned-percussionists. Normally this group would be sharing their syncopated sounds at EPCOT using all sorts of different items they find around the park. Today, they are sharing their #VoicesFromHome — using pots and pans, trash cans and even an old tire! I am loving this as a musician myself because music is a universal language that everyone understands and it unites us all. Music brings me so much joy and I love to share it with others and you can truly see that the JAMMitors love making music and bringing happiness and smiles to everyone as well, even if they cannot be in the parks.
Keep an eye out for even more virtual pixie dust and use #DisneyMagicMoments to show how you’re bringing the Disney magic to life at home! Be sure to check out the DisneyParksBlog page for activities and check back here at spokesmayne.co to keep up to date on fun things happening even with the parks being closed.
