One of the more positive things to come out of the coronavirus outbreak and our current quarantine lives is seeing how my family has come together. Weekly movie nights, craft projects, lots of dancing—we’ve been finding new ways to enjoy time together as one family unit. Of course, we all need our alone time; Bobby and I recorded a podcast together just so we could hide out in the studio! (And seriously, we could have stayed in there all day.) But when it comes time to hunker down on the couch and hang out as a family, we’re looking to Disney Magic Moments.

The Walt Disney Company was founded by brothers Walt Disney and Roy O. Disney on October 16, 1923.

We’re a Disney Family

Disney has the hearts of our whole family. From mine and Bobby’s honeymoon at Walt Disney World to family vacations at Disneyland and nowadays to our own Boss Baby joining the #disneyfamilysingalong to “Under the Sea” on ABC. Our love for all things Disney knows no bounds. And in between dancing around the house to our favorite animated classics, we’re so excited to share Disney’s newest way for you and your family to have your own Disney Magic Moments during quarantine.

The first original character Disney created was a rabbit called Oswald the Lucky Rabbit.

Free Disney Magic, Please! is a brand new website where your whole family can find immersive and exciting Disney content. Marvel, Pixar, Star Wars, Walt Disney Animation Studios, National Geographic, Disney Parks—everything you love about the wonderful world of Disney (and beyond) is all in one place, delivering stories, resources, games and more right to your family’s living room…completely free! Yes, breathe that sigh of relief with me (but mainly, Bobby). F-R-E-E. As if I couldn’t love them more!

In 1937, Disney produced the first feature-length animation film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. With a production budget of $1.49 million, it grossed $66 million after its initial release.

Find Something For Everyone

On the site, you’ll find a little bit of everything. So really, whatever you and the family are in the mood for! There are live-streamed Lunch Doodles with Mo Willems and drawing classes with Disney Animation for the creative ones in your crew—they just did one on how to draw Sven from Frozen. Little ones will love the storytime readalongs and singalongs with the Dapper Dans and jam sessions with the JAMMitors, who are using whatever they find around the house to make some noise! Bobby and I love the virtual ride-throughs of Disney Parks’ attractions, like “It’s a Small World,” and the virtual viewing of entertainment like the “Magic Happens” parade. Because it really feels like you’re right there in the park! But bonus—you can still be in your pajamas and you didn’t have to wait in any lines! AKA a mother’s dream.

Forbes considers Scrooge McDuck the world’s richest fictional character. He’s worth an estimated $65.3 billion.

Stay Connected to the Magic

It’s so important to stay connected during this time. So when I’m able to find ways for the whole family to hang out together, it feels like the biggest parenting win right now. Disney Magic Moments has become our family’s daily go-to. And if your love for Disney is anything like ours, I know you’ll love this daily dose of virtual pixie dust just like we do.

The oldest attraction in Disneyland is the Petrified Tree in Frontierland. It’s believed to be about 55 to 70 million years old.
