When Disney World and Disneyland shut down in March, Disney blogs had to get creative on offering content. Do you remember our Disney-fy your Downtime series?
When Disney World and Disneyland shut down in March, it was unprecedented. Like our readers, we were unsure how long the shut down would last.
No one would want to read reviews of restaurants and resorts they couldn’t access. Planning a vacation, especially in an expensive and busy place like Disney, no longer seemed like a priority.
Blog Focus Shifts
From March until June or so, our blog shifted to a new focus: how to bring the magic of your Disney Vacation to your home.
Instead of our usual content, we decided to show people that Disney magic can be found outside of Anaheim and Orlando.
After all, Disney magic is in the heart of all who love Disney! (And also it’s a cruise ship that is currently in port in Dover England).
Many of our readers are still waiting to take their vacations. Actually, many of our writers continue to wait as well!
