The Coronavirus-COVID 19 Pandemic has many of us on edge. As you are probably already aware of by now every Disney Park throughout the world is now closed. It was announced yesterday that Disney World, Disneyland and the Disney Cruise Line have all closed through the end of March due to the Coronavirus COVID-19. This is one of the few times in history that the parks have closed but I am happy they are taking this crisis seriously by putting the health of their guests and cast members first.
Check out this Disney Planning VideoI miss Walt Disney World every. single. day! It’s hard enough to leave your magical vacation behind but even more disappointing if your Disney plans are suddenly canceled due to park closure. As soon as I make my final exit out of the parks, or board the tragical express (a.k.a. Magical Express), or disembark from an amazing Disney Cruise, the tears start flowing.
Literally. A true Disney lover will understand that these Disney blues are the real deal. My husband and son can’t quite relate but thankfully our daughter Gabrielle can. She is my Disney buddy and fully understands what the post-Disney blues are all about.
So how Do We Cure The Disney World Blues When You Can’t Visit The Parks?
UGH. Re-entry into the real world where life isn’t always as magical is hard friends. Hard. But the upside is there are some cool ways to keep that pixie dust flowing until your next visit. Plus, if you plan yearly (or even more frequent) visit, you at least have a future visit to plan and look forward to. This may sound corny, but I have a piece of Disney with me every single day. Whether its listening to a Pandora station, a Disney Alex and Ani Charm Bracelet or just looking at past Disney vacation photos. While there is no place like home, here are 10 Ways To Cure Disney World Blues that you can try.
How To Cure The Disney Blues When You Can’t Visit The Parks
Listen To Park Music
Did you know there are a few music apps/stations that play nothing but music from the Disney Parks? Yep, you can stream or download Sorcerer Radio or Reedy Creek Radio on your phone to keep that Disney spirit going all year long. There are also some YouTube channels that play park music as well. It will definitely put a little spring in your step. And, don’t forget, you can also stream Disney stations from iTunes, Pandora, Amazon Music and Spotify to name a few.
Watch A Disney Movie (or two)
Thankfully, if you subscribe to Disney Plus, you have a “whole new world” of Disney shows and movies to binge-watch. If you don’t have the service, pop in your favorite Disney DVD. Brighten up your day with a classic Disney movie. Have a family movie night and binge watch a few. They are sure to put a smile on your face. What’s your favorite? I have three all-time favorite Disney movies – Mary Poppins, Rapunzel and Moana.
Use Disney Products
If you are a fan of the Disney H2O products, like shampoo and body wash, available in your resort room, stop by the gift shop and buy some Disney products to use at home. You can purchase H20 products online. You can even shop at Basin in Disney Springs for more Disney-inspired bath and body items.
Show Your Disney Side
I love wearing my @waltdisneyworld memories on my wrist. The majestic #cinderellacastle serves as a beautiful backdrop for my #waltdisneyworld @alexandani ! #disneysmmc #wdw #disneyfan #disneygram #jewelry #fashion #thefarmgirltravels #disney #disneystyle #magickingdom #familytravel #pixiedust #alexandani #disneyside #instadisney #disneyphotography #cinderella #happiestplaceonearth #disneyfamily #happyplace #waltdisney #disneyfanatic #disneylover #disneyaddict #disneylifestyle #thehappynow #instadisney
There are a million ways to show your Disney Side when you are not in the parks. Sport your favorite Disney shirt, wear your favorite Disney-inspired jewelry and put on your favorite Mouse Ears to show your Disney pride. You can even Disney bound as your favorite characters too.
Watch YouTube Videos To Cure The Disney World Blues
YouTube videos of the parks in action, as well as live streams on popular social media channels like Facebook and Instagram, are a fun way to feel like you are part of the action.
Snack Away Your Sorrows To Cure Disney World Blues
Enjoy a cup of Joffrey’s coffee, the official coffee of Walt Disney World or a packaged snack you brought home from the park or resort. You can purchase Joffrey’s directly from their website and have it shipped right to your home. How magical is that!
Cook Up Some Disney Fun To Cure The Disney World Blues
Try making one of your favorite Disney recipes right at home. I have recreated a few here on The Farm Girl Gabs. I especially enjoy a cold LeFou’s Brew or a Mickey Rice Krispies treat but you can find a few other of my Disney favorites here.
Say It With Photos
My one Achilles heel is that I take a TON of photos when I am at Disney, but never get past storing them on a special hard drive. That’s going to change! I promise. Create a Disney photo album from your last trip as a keepsake. You can either print the photos out yourself and put in an album or, create a book on Shutterfly or Snapfish.
