The Virtual Disney Experience!

Earlier this month, Disney made the decision to close all their parks, hotels, and stores in order to protect its staff and customers in the midst of the current pandemic. As disappointing as this would have been for those of you planning trips to one of the Disney parks in the next couple of months, we come bearing good news and some classic Disney magic!

Not only was Disney+ released this week (and yes of course we've been binge watching our faves) but also we've discovered some 360-degree videos on YouTube which can make you feel like you're actually on some of the best Disney rides!

These aren't *officially* Disney videos, but some of them are pretty awesome! Here are our faves;

Why not give the famous Splash Mountain a try, all while remaining completely dry!

Or try out the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror without being too terrified from the safety of your own home (and the comfort of your own sofa)!

Take the 'round the world trip you've always dreamed of on Soarin' Around the World!

And go on the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad without having to queue at all!

Fancy a flight to Neverland? So do we, so why not glide through Peter Pan's Flight to Neverland with him and the whole gang?

Or if you want a trip to Arendelle instead then check out Frozen Ever After with our favourite ice queen!

We're sorry for even mentioning it because the song is now stuck in our heads, but we can't talk about classic Disney rides without a virtual trip to a It's A Small World too!

Let us know what your favourite rides are, and enjoy experiencing them from the comfort of your own home!
