Disney, I miss you. That’s why I was super excited to find these virtual Disney rides you can enjoy from home.
With Disneyland and Disney World closed, there are lots of Disney fans like myself suffering from ride withdrawals.
But have no fear, virtual help is here!
Even though Disney rides are not currently operating, you can experience the magic of the Happiest Place on Earth sitting on your couch dressed in none other than your Disney pajamas.
It’s true: Many of your favorite Disney rides are available virtually via YouTube.
Fly a mission on Star Wars’ Millennium Falcon in Disneyland, quench your need for speed on the Incredicoaster at Disney’s California Adventure Park, or marvel at our beautiful planet with a bird’s eye view on Epcot’s Soarin’ Around the World in Disney World.
And with virtual rides, you won’t have to contend with large crowds, lengthy wait times, or long lines.
Craving a dose of Disney?
These 20 virtual rides are just what you need!
