If you’re craving a trip to Walt Disney World and Disneyland, and want to experience a bit of that magic in your home, there’s lots of things on Disney+ you can watch! I wanted to create a round-up of things to watch to experience Disney Parks on Disney+ so we can all have a bit of Disney magic indoors:
The Imagineering Story
The Imagineering Story is a 6-part docuseries created by Leslie Iwerks (granddaughter of Ub Iwerks). The episodes are great to watch in order, since they begin from Walt Disney creating Disneyland to present day projects in develop for Disney Parks around the globe. And it’s my personal favorite Disney+ original content.
Disneyland Around the Seasons
Disneyland Around the Seasons is a bit of a hidden gem on Disney+. This was actually a television special made in 1966, so you get to see a look at what Disneyland was like during that time, including special parades (that even have Pluto strutting down Main Street, USA with real dogs), and seasonal celebrations in 1966.
Decorating Disney: Holiday Magic
Have double the magic with Disney AND holiday magic with Decorating Disney! This was a special on Freeform that you can now catch on Disney+, that shows how the Disney Parks and Disney Cruise ships are decorated practically overnight for the holiday season each year. Plus in the it’s a Small World scene you can see my family and I making a cameo riding the ride!
Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings
Disney’s Fairytale Weddings shows a behind-the-scenes look of couples tying the knot at Disneyland, Walt Disney World, and Disney Cruise Lines! There’s six episodes available to watch on Disney+.
One Day at Disney
One Day at Disney is a series of shorts made for Disney+ that talk about different cast members stories, many of which are cast members who work in the park such as an animal keeper, seamstress for attraction character costumes, and Imagineers.
Saving Mr. Banks
Saving Mr. Banks, the film based on Walt Disney wanting to acquire the rights to Mary Poppins, has a scene that was actually filmed in Disneyland. It tries to recreate a taste of Disneyland from the 1960’s, as well as Southern California in general during that time period making it another great watch if you want your fix of Disney Parks on Disney+.
And there you have it! I look forward to someday there maybe being the original Wonderful World of Color Series hosted by Walt Disney, or maybe even perhaps the Disneyland Sing-a-Long Songs video from the 1990’s!
