When this article goes live, guess where I will be! Anyone?! Huge shock, but I will be in Disney World!! I bet you all never saw that one coming, did you? S,o to be completely honest, this article is going to be shorter than my usual ones because, well, I’m in full-on Disney packing mode as I type this. So, bear with me! Anyway, this article will be all about how I get into the Disney Spirit in between trips!
1. Disney Music
This is actually a constant in my house 365 days a year. From when I wake up in the morning, till I go to bed at night, I will have either my Disney Pandora station on or some other form of Disney music playing in the background. It just makes me happy and gets me in the Disney spirit! Good sources of Disney music are Pandora, Spotify, or even good ol’ Youtube.
2. Watching Disney Movies
Again, this is something we do pretty often too, but not often enough, I guess. If you read my article from a few weeks back, you know that my son was getting songs from movies confused, and I could not have that happen. So, I made a list of all the Disney movies that were somehow represented in the parks. If you would like to see that list, click here.
3. Getting into the Disney Community
There are so many ways to get your Disney fill, and my favorite is Instagram! I love getting to see live videos from people’s vacations. I love seeing people post photos of their children meeting their favorite character for the first time. I love getting to see the friendships made, all because we all have the same passion for the same place. It really is a great thing! But if Instagram is not your thing, there are tons more options out there for you! There are Blogs, Facebook, Reddit, and so many more!
4. Disney Youtube Videos
Every Sunday morning, my son and I watch Youtube videos of Disney World. We watch park/resort walkthroughs, people riding the rides, shows, parades, everything! It gives us a little insight into our ‘home’ while we are away from home.
5. Burning a Candle
Nothing, and I mean nothing, gets me into the Disney spirit better than smelling Disney. Sounds a little weird when I put it that way, but it’s soo true! If you haven’t heard of Circa 1955 Candles, then you are missing out! These candles put you right in the middle of the magic. My favorite one is pictured above. The scent of a Mickey waffle is absolutely my favorite! If you would like to check them out, which I HIGHLY suggest, here is the link! You don’t want to miss out!
I hope this article helps you get into the spirit of Disney while you are away from home! Is there anything that you do to get you in the Disney spirit? Let me know in the comments down below!
