Disney has released a number of activities, recipes and videos to help provide entertainment whilst people around the world social distance and Disney theme parks remain closed.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Disney theme parks around the world are closed. During this unprecedented moment, the company is still creating magic with #DisneyMagicMoments.

Disney princesses can now read your children a bedtime story; a magic moment for children everywhere . Several princesses have taken part in the ‘Storytime with’ series on the Disney YouTube channel.

Meanwhile, on the Disney Parks Blog, several new activities have been added to help with social distancing boredom. If you need new recipe ideas, try recreating Disney’s famous churro bites.
