Disney World is closed, but these virtual rides bring the Magic Kingdom home

Written by

Disney World and all Walt Disney World theme parks are closed through at least March 31, but you can turn your home into the Magic Kingdom by using your computer, TV or other devices to go on a virtual ride.

Since you can't head out for adventure, we're bringing a little bit of that fun to you: In this era of social distancing, we'll help you get your "whoo-hoo!" on without leaving the couch.

Check out our favorite Disney rides—virtually: 

Others observed that these online rides—though not affiliated with Disney—are loved by many, and we're positive that they'll make staying home a little more exciting for kiddos. You get to experience the full ride on classics like Splash Mountain, and epic new rides like Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and even fan favorites like Frozen.

All you have to do is stream the videos posted by dedicated fans who documented these amazing rides—and who waited in those legendary lines. (We're grateful.)

Take a journey on Expedition Everest

Visit Anna and Elsa on Frozen Ever After

Head to a galaxy far, far away thanks to Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance 

Have fun on Splash Mountain 

Head out of this world with Space Mountain 

After all, this is a great time to bring that uplifting Disney spirit into your home. You can inspire the kiddos with the best Disney songs of all time, or stream the best Disney princess movies of all time.
