On this episode of the Geek Girls Universe Podcast, we are talking Disney, but you know sad Disney because none of the parks are open. We know it is for the best, but that doesn’t make missing the magic any easier. To help with the Disney blues, these are ways to have Disney magic at home.

Disney Magic At Home When You Can’t Go To The Parks
Disney Videos & Playlists
Do you find yourself wandering around your house singing “Yo Ho, Yo Ho, a Pirate’s Life For Me?” Or “It’s a small world after all!” No matter your favorite Disney ride, parade, or fireworks show, there are tons of YouTube videos for you to choose from.
Cast it to the TV and sit up close to feel like you are really there on the Incredicoaster, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, and Splash Mountain. Or you know tear up watching Happily Ever After or the now-retired Wishes show. No one will judge you…I’m a total crier during fireworks. Anyone else?
Maybe you just need to feel like you’re walking down Main Street. Disney Parks playlist on Apple Music as well as Sorcerer Radio on Google Play, Alexa, and in iTunes App Store plays Disney music 24/7. Close your eyes use that great big beautiful imagination of yours and pretend you’re right there on the corner by the Confectionary.
Disney Movies and TV Shows
Thank the maker for Disney Plus, Disney Now, and Movies Anywhere. Between those three you have access to almost everything Disney has ever made. From classics like Cinderella to new films like Onward.
Disney+ is our lifesaver at the moment. With so many shows and films to watch it is definitely helping pass the time. If you are wondering where to start, don’t worry. We have our lists of what we think are the best things to binge right now on Disney Plus.

Disney Home Decor
Even if you can’t go to Disney you can bring a little pixie dust into your home with some Disney Home Decor. We like to use our Refillable Mugs from the resorts as well as other Disney mugs when we drink our tea and coffee. Science says it tastes better that way.
I also have various art pieces from our trips and collectibles hanging around that make me smile when I see them. If your home is lacking Disney magic, head over to ShopDisney to find everything you need to decorate your home Disney style.
Listening to other Disney Nerds might also help stave off the Disney blues. Disney Podcasts, like ours, are great for some much-needed laughs.
Some others we recommend are:
Can someone please make me a Dole Whip float? I guess I need to make it myself right now, ugh fine!! At least there are a plethora of Disney copy-cat and Disney inspired recipes on Pinterest. We have several on our websites as well.
It can be something as simple as these Toy Story inspired snacks or you can go all out and create an entire meal designed after your favorite attraction or character. Read all about Ashley’s Disney party ideas here.
Don’t these Moana cupcakes look amazing?
Jana has everything from a Frozen White Chocolate Milkshake to Hocus Pocus cupcakes. Click here for her Disney inspired recipes.
If baking or creating recipes is not your thing you can also look for Mickey Ice Cream Bars, Star Wars Ice Cream Sandwiches, Toy Story Themed Ice Cream, and other various snack foods at your local grocery store.
Adults, this one is for you. If you are looking for adult Disney beverages check out Jana’s extensive cocktail list here. I could go for this Captain Marvel Cocktail right now.
Grab your Minnie Mouse ears and Magic Bands. Being stuck at home doesn’t mean you can’t look fabulous. Not to mention this gives you a great excuse to get out of your pajamas into some real clothes!
We know you have plenty of “Disney Parks” clothes and if you have children they probably do too. Put on a fashion show, strut your stuff like you’re Daisy Duck, and see who can be the most Disneyfied person in your house.
