Today we have another Disney To Do while you are trying to find things to do while we do our part to spot the spread.
Disney Parks Blog is doing their part to help others stay entertained while indoors as we work together to flatten the curve. Check out these AMAZING drawing tutorials from Disney Artists! With so many beloved characters to choose from, you'll really enjoy these lessons!
Here's another Disney to do while you are helping reduce the spread of our unwelcome 2020 visitor, Covid-19.
Ever wondered how they build a theme park ground up? Could anything be better than learning how to do that with the guidance of a Disney Imagineer? What if I said it was free?
Check out this great collaboration from the Khan Academy, and Disney Parks Imagineers. You'll learn how to create every detail of your own theme park, in these fantastic FREE lessons.
The magic doesn't have to stop, just because you are inside, doing your part to help stop the spread of Covid-19. (And thank you for that. There are a lot of immunocompromised who need you to do that)
Why not break out the coloring pages for you or the kiddos? I'm actually googling Small World Coloring sheets because there are some AWESOME ones!! Here's a link that will take you to loads of sheets, be more specific with a character or attraction and you might just find the perfect way to spend an hour!
We love Disney gift cards! We've talked before how to get free money to spend on Disney gift cards, but do you know all of the ways that you can use your Disney gift cards? We've got a list for you! This isn't a complete list, but I'll bet there's a few ways to use them you might not have known!
1. Disney Resorts, includng those like Aulani and Hilton Head
2. Food anywhere on Disney Property, even some non owned Disney Spring locations
3. Souvenirs and shopping at Disney and Disney Springs
4. Parking at the Theme Parks
5. Theme park tickets
6. Spa services
7. Disney Cruises
8. Adventures by Disney
9. DVC dues or fees
10. Memory Maker
So what can't you use these gift cards on? Balloon vendors are cash only, and a few of the nightime carts with light up toys can't take these. You can't use these (yet) for Minnie Vans, RunDisney fees, pressed pennies, laundry services and a few other small things. It's also a good idea to have a little cash as a backup, there have been times we've been in Epcot and all credit card readers have gone down, and the only way to get that Mickey Pretzel was with cash!
Once you get your gift cards, you can combine them up to $1000 each, check balances or even buy specialty looking cards, through Disney's gift card website.
There's very little these card's can't buy, and with so many fun designs, they are perfect gifts too! If you haven't read our article on how in less than 10 seconds how to make sure your child (or you!) doesn't lose their gift card, you might want to check it out by clicking here. It's quick, easy, and fun!
A favorite souvenir for children is the building of a lightsaber. You can build your lightsaber at many different locations throughout Walt Disney World, including at Disney Springs, so no park ticket? No problem! Remember, you can do a lot of Disney, without a park ticket!
This multi step process can take as little, or as much time as you'd like. On busier days, or if you get an over zealous cast member helping, they'll rush you along and you'll be done incredibly fast. Prices do change, but the more elaborate the lightsaber, the more it costs. There are different stations:
Here are some close ups of the parts. These parts are interchangeable, so if you get more than one lightsaber, you can change the look later, mixing the pieces.
As you can see, there is a LOT of customization that can be done. There are guides if you wish to copy an existing Jedi or Sith lightsaber, but I personally think it's more fun to create you own! Does your family have any of these?
