They say dreams come true when you go to Disney. Disney closed its gates in mid-March because of the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus and visitors are left without the magic. Until now.
Disney Parks is bringing the magic to homes all over the world with virtual rides, firework shows and weekly animated shorts.
To raise quarantine spirits, the Dapper Dans are virtually welcoming the guests. The group created the hashtag #VoicesFromHome to showcase their three videos. The Dapper Dans are a barbershop quartet that performs every hour on Main Street USA to welcome park guests to Disneyland and Disney World
Want to ride your favorite ride? Disney is offering that, too.
The company recorded first-person videos of its rides for park guests to enjoy from home. Some rides include: Slinky Dog Dash, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and the classic “It's a Small World” from Disneyland and Disney World.
Every week on Disney Animation’s YouTube channel, animators present minute-long shorts of Olaf from “Frozen” titled “At Home With Olaf.” The most popular video is “Birthday,” which has more than 450,000 views.
Every Disney fan knows the happiest place on Earth ends its park days with a firework show. Disney World’s shows titled “Happily Ever After” and Disneyland Paris’ “Disney Illuminations,” are available onYouTube.
Disney Parks’ YouTube channel presents daily videos to keep fans entertained until the parks re-open.
