Maybe you’ve had to cancel a dream trip to Disneyland this year, or you’ve been lucky enough to go previously, and have been using those happy memories to get you through another bout of lockdown.
Either way, there is no denying there’s something special about the magic of Disney, particularly the excitement and wonder that comes from the theme parks.
Disney Magic Moments is keen to continue to spread some pixie dust and magic until we can travel again with a host of virtual rides, activities, and recipes available online.
