Still cannot believe it was just over a month ago I was in the Happiest Place on Earth. Only for it to shut it’s doors a few days later…
I know there are tonnes of people who had trips planned this year or were in the middle of planning their dream holidays. And now in limbo as to when it might re-open (or international travel be possible again).
But Disney is trying their best to bring the magic to you at home! So I thought I would share some great ways to make magic happen at home 😉
Watch the New “Magic Happens” Parade
This parade only launched a few weeks prior to the shutdown, and it is truly the most magical thing you’ve ever seen.
This original song by Todrick is bound to get the whole family dancing. As well as all your favourite movies 😉

Get Some Mickey Mouse Ears
What better way than to bring the park to you than sporting your own Mickey Ears.
It can be hard to source them in Aus. Kmart does have them from time to time (see below).
You can also get custom made ones (not official merch) via eBay and Etsy also
