Welcome back to DADventure Disney’s round table of some of my favorite Disney Fan Parents on Instagram.
Every week, I work alongside this merry band of Disney fan parents to find our Top 10 favorites in all things Disney. See ALL our lists by clicking HERE!

Our topic this week: Top 10 Favorite Things To Do At Home To Keep The Disney Magic At Home
We are all sheltered in our homes. We hope you and yours are well, safe and healthy.
The Disney Parks are closed. The Disney Store and Outlets are closed. The Resorts, Restaurants and Shops are closed. We can’t head to see Onward, Jungle Book or Mulan in the theaters.
However, that doesn’t mean we can’t still celebrate and experience the MAGIC of Disney, right here at home.
The Disney Parents Panel came up with our Top 10 Favorite things we do at home. We may look silly or fear overloading the family with Disney-stuff, but we won’t give up the magic!
After you view our list, hit the comments below and let us know what you think of our list and What YOU are doing at home to keep the magic going!
Let’s get to it!

The newest trend, which we LOVE, is to put you little kids into a box or laundry basket infront of your big TV. Load up a Disney Ride-Thur video and move the box/basket in line with the point of view of the ride. SO FUN!

There should be no surprise that our Disney Parents Panelists are surfing Instagram and interacting with our fellow Disney-maniacs all day. There are SO many great Disney accounts to chat with, view, watch, listen to and just remember fond days when we were all in the parks.
We can’t list all the best – but if you start with our accounts we listed at the top of this story – you’ll find the good stuff! 🙂
