Today I’m launching a brand new series that will focus on all the different ways you can find Walt Disney World-related material in…let’s say…long form writing. This series will encompass everything from great blogs to books (and e-books) and magazines. I’m a sucker for a good book, and combining that with my favorite vacation spot is a great way to learn more about Walt Disney World, or perhaps plan for my next visit. I’m hoping you feel the same.
So maybe just listening to music or changing your desktop/mobile wallpaper leaves something to be desired. After all, the luster of Walt Disney World is often total immersion in the stories around you. You may have seen the growing emergence of virtual reality headsets, but if you have then you’ve also seen the cost. Luckily, there are some reasonably effective and more wallet-friendly options. Mix these with some handy 360 degree videos, and you can have a pretty immersive WDW experience from wherever you happen to be.
Yesterday, we took a look at the sounds that are distinct to Magic Kingdom’s Main Street, U.S.A. While what you hear is a huge part of what sets the stage on Main Street, it wouldn’t be half as immersive if the sights didn’t match up.
We talked a bit last week how the music of Walt Disney World is so often the thing that creates the feelings and the settings that we so fondly remember. For my money, there are few places where this holds more true than Main Street, U.S.A. in the Magic Kingdom.
My sense of style is admittedly lacking, so luckily I leave that up to other, more qualified people. Like those at the Disney Style blog, who came up with some awesome Disney Desk Themes – including this “Park Explorer” set.
This will only be the second entry into my Music Monday series, but honestly I might not need any more after it. I really think you’ll enjoy Mouse World Radio this much. Mouse World Radio is a website (and app) that let’s you stream music from Disney Parks attractions, shows, and background loops.
So maybe a replica of Spaceship Earth in your living room isn’t your style (or maybe it is, I’m not here to judge either way). WDW DIY isn’t going to be about bringing in-your-face-Disney into your home all the time. If you’re looking for something a bit more subdued, there are so many great options for you. Let’s check out the first.
Most people nowadays will touch a personal electronic device every single day, be it a phone, a tablet, or a computer. Luckily, the Disney Parks Blog has a HUGE collection of official Disney Parks wallpapers for mobile devices and desktops! Continue reading “WDW-ify Your Devices”→
Nothing can take you to that magic place quite like music. That’s why in this new weekly series of posts, we’ll be looking at various music in and around the parks. First up is my personal favorite: Illuminations: Reflections of Earth.
