the wonderful world of disney

If you’re of a certain age (which we are so not admitting to), you probably grew up watching The Wonderful World of Disney on ABC. Everyone would sit down and watch classic movies, and it was simply the best. Now that we’re all in quarantine, Disney is trying to help us recapture some of that magic with our own kids.

The Wonderful World of Disney, a primetime movie marathon, will begin on May 20 and run through June 10, bringing four iconic feature films to ABC every Wednesday night at 8 pm. All the films are currently available on the Disney+ app, if you can’t wait.

If you don’t have Disney+, mark your calendars for the world debut of Moana on May 20, visit Asgard in Thor: The Dark World on May 27, soar with Carl and Russell in Up on June 3 and cheer on Hiro and Baymax during a showing of Big Hero 6 on June 10.

Since all of Disney’s parks are currently closed, it’s been working hard to bring its magic to homes since the COVID-19 pandemic began. Last month, Disney brought a star-studded family singalong special to screens with stars like Josh Gad and Ariana Grande, and will be airing part two of the singalong special on May 10 at 7 pm. The streaming giant also released Onward and Frozen 2 to Disney+ ahead of schedule.

If that’s not enough Disney, the #DisneyMagicMoments page is packed with stories, videos and activities from Pixar, Star Wars, Marvel and National Geographic. Kids can learn how to draw with Disney Animation or Pixar, print out coloring sheets, listen to storytimes and more.
