5 Ways to Have a Virtual Walt Disney World Trip at Home

I miss visiting Walt Disney World under regular circumstances, so if you’re like me and are missing Walt Disney World while you’re staying home, here are some fun ways to bring a Walt Disney World vacation right into your home!

Enjoy Favorite Attractions

One way to get your Walt Disney World fix at home is to take a virtual ride on some of your favorite attractions, or watch some videos of your favorite shows. Here are links to some of my favorites!

Have fun on lots more Walt Disney World attractions with these 360-degree rides!

Music from the Parks

Bring the feeling of visiting the theme parks into your home with some music from the parks! I love putting on a soundtrack or music loop when I’m missing the theme parks.

Make Favorite Disney Recipes

One of my favorite things about visiting the theme parks is the delicious food and snacks – and you can bring the flavors of the parks home with you! Here are a few of my favorites.

Have a Disney Marathon

So much of my love of the Disney Parks comes from my love of the films, so there’s nothing quite like reliving favorite Disney vacation memories through a movie marathon! Plus, there’s all kinds of content out there to learn more about the Disney Parks and Disney history.

  • Have a Disney movie marathon! Many classic Disney films are well represented in the theme parks, so you can get that extra dose of magic by re-watching your favorites or trying out something new.

  • Get a behind-the-scenes look at how the Disney Parks were built, developed, and changed over time with The Imagineering Story on Disney+, and check out the story behind unique props from Disney films on Prop Culture.

  • Take a virtual tour of Walt Disney Imagineering on the Disney Parks YouTube channel! Here’s Part 1 to get started.

Make Disney Crafts

Get hands-on and try some fun Disney activities and crafts at home!

  • Learn to draw Disney characters: There’s a whole playlist available that shows you how to draw a variety of Disney characters!

  • The Disney Skyliner offers service from 4 resorts to Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios in over 400 whimsical gondolas – and you can make and decorate your own gondolas at home! Download the template and print it out – cardstock works well but paper works fine too. You’ll also need scissors, and paste, glue, or tape. Use some string to make your own Skyliner route!

  • You can also make some Disney Patches with Designs by Miss Mandee!  These adorable patches can be used to decorate just about anything.  A simple safety pin makes these an easy (and removable) decoration for just about anything! Click here to download the template and here for the instructions.

Bonus: Plan Your Next Trip!

Did you know that planning a trip is often just as fun, if not more, than taking the trip itself? Even though travel is paused for now, I’m looking forward to visiting Walt Disney World again once the situation has improved. If you’re also wanting a trip to look forward to, or even if you just want to dream a little, you can learn more about planning your trip here!
