You Can Now Go On Virtual Disney Rides From The Comfort Of Your Sofa
Disneyland and Disney World theme parks might be temporarily closed while the world deals with this coronavirus outbreak, but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy the rides from the comfort of your own home.
Well, sort of.
You can bring the Disney magic into your own living room - and all you have to do is go on YouTube.
Yup, as spotted by Jezebel, it turns out that loads of people who previously visited Disney's Orlando site have documented their rollercoaster experiences - meaning you can ride along with them as if you're really there.
These virtual experiences include a trip on Space Mountain in Tomorrowland at Magic Kingdom, a jolly It's A Small World boat ride in Fantasyland Magic Kingdom and a dip in the water at The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Undersea Adventure.
There's loads of other experiences you can test out online, too.
The fun really is never ending.
The inventive alternative comes as Disneyland in California, Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and Disneyland Paris Resort all closed their doors to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus last week.

Plus, the Disney Cruise Line suspended all new cruise liners, too.
Disney parks very rarely shut altogether - but the company has insisted that doing so is in the best interests of employees and members of the public.
"The Walt Disney company will pay its cast members during that period," the company promised.
It added that "domestic" Walt Disney employees would be asked to work from home.
Currently (on Thursday 19th March) there are 220,351 recorded coronavirus cases globally, but many more people who are symptomatic and haven't been tested.
A devastating 8,987 people have passed away from the disease, but it is worth noting that 85,778 have recovered.
In such a troubling time, all we can do is keep following the government's advice, stay indoors and look after the most vulnerable in society.
And hey, what better way to pass the time than a virtual holiday?!
