Okay, so the Disney parks and Disney Cruises are closed for now.
We can still have some Disney fun, right?
Here’s my list of ideas for Disney-themed activities to help you pass the time solo or as a family.
1) Get Disney Plus
We’ve become huge Disney+ fans in our house.
Seriously – we just watched Miracle as a family last night…I’d never seen it and it was so inspiring.
Here’s what I’m loving right now:
- Frozen 2 just came out!
- Togo is an excellent movie
- The Mandalorian is just what any Star Wars lover wants
- The Imagineering Story is incredible Disney history documentary
Here are some guides that might help you:
- How to Get Disney+ Free for 7 Days
- Is the Disney+ Bundle Worth It?
- The Best Shows on Disney+
- The Best Movies on Disney+
- The Best Star Wars Shows & Movies on Disney Plus
- The Best Marvel Shows & Movies on Disney+
And, if you want to give some Disney love, a Disney+ gift subscription is very thoughtful.
2) Throw a Frozen 2 Party
If your kids are home because school is cancelled, take a break from the regular and turn the day into something special.
Watch Frozen 2 and make it a party too!
Frozen 2 movie is now available at:
Order it now and when it arrives, throw the “coolest” Frozen 2 party! You’ll make incredible memories with your kids.
3) Make Frozen 2 Cupcakes
Don’t want to do a full party, no problem.
Make these Frozen 2 Cupcakes.
The step-by-step instructions make it simple to bake Queen Elsa or Sven cupcakes.
4) Enjoy a Disney Puzzle
You can wile away the hours with one of these delightful Disney jigsaw puzzles.
My favorites are found in my list of Thomas Kinkade Disney puzzles, but here’s a great one to start with:
A 500-piece puzzle provides a quick, enjoyable puzzle experience for adults that need their “puzzle fix”.
For older children, it is a sense of accomplishment to put a 500 piece puzzle together.
I recommend this pack for all Disney lovers, as it comes with four 500-piece puzzles of famous Thomas Kinkade works of art:
- Lady and the Tramp
- Winnie the Pooh
- Fantasia with Mickey Mouse
5) Disney Coloring Pages
Our Disney Coloring Pages have been very popular.
You can choose from coloring pages of Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Frozen, Toy Story, Star Wars, Spiderman, Rapunzel, Ariel, Moana, and more.
Just print and enjoy.
6) Make Your Own Disney Banner
This is a fast and fun Disney craft you can do with your kids.
I originally made the artwork for these Disney pennants and character banners to decorate a Disney Cruise stateroom.
How fun would it be to make these and decorate your home?
There are 22 banners you can print.
7) Disney Scavenger Hunt
My free Disney scavenger hunt is great to help reveal a Disney parks or Disney Cruise trip.
You can ALSO use it for just something fun to do at home!
In one easy PDF file, you’ll receive everything you need to plan the perfect Disney scavenger hunt.
It has 11 Disney-themed clues. Just add in your own at the end to direct them to the creative prize of your choice.
8) Have a Minnie-Manicure
Grab the nail polish and decorate your nails in Disney style.
I have three great posts FULL of nail art ideas & inspiration for you:
9) Get Crafty…Disney Cricut Style
Ever wanted to learn the art of Disney crafting? We love our Cricut machine and now that you have some time stuck in the house, this might be a great time to learn how to craft with a Cricut.
We’ve created a long list of Disney and Star Wars themed Cricut projects. Each has a step-by-step instruction guide to make it REALLY simple to get going with a new Cricut.
10) Plan Your Next Disney Trip
So…why not start planning now?
Even if you can’t make *specific* plans, you can still learn all there is to know about your dream Disney destination (Star Wars hotel, anyone?)
I have planning guides to help you! Find the perfect one for you:
11) Make Disney Chalk Art
Get outside and decorate…the sidewalk!
Doesn’t have to be a sidewalk. A driveway or empty cul-de-sac will work just fine.
Grab some sidewalk chalk and “make a scene”.
Here are some ideas to inspire you:
12) Enjoy a Board Game
Our family loves game night. And we particularly enjoy Disney-themed games that bring us together and get us laughing.
Need some new ideas? No problem.
This list of Disney board games should get you started:
13) Get Crafty…with a Disney Craft
We made a massive list of Disney crafts and activities for kids to do.
Some projects on this list require a little bit of adult supervision, but for the most part, pick a project and let your child explore her imaginative side.
What to do next…
