As is the case with many of us despite restaurants and various businesses beginning to reopen amidst the Coronavirus pandemic, I'm having a particularly hard time bringing magic into my world here at home. I'm also trying to do so without going on an ordering frenzy at shopDisney.com. My house is only so big and I only have so many places to display fun collectibles, however.
Here's the thing, there is some pretty awesome merchandise being presented to us lately and I am, quite frankly, having a hard time keeping my [proverbial] hands off of some of it. I couldn't resist the newest pattern from Dooney and Bourke as it has Minnie Mouse in pink which is my VERY favorite EVER and to top it off, it includes various scenes from Main Street, U.S.A. which is actually my most favorite place in the Magic Kingdom. So, resist no more – the bag is here. I mean, it's not something that just sits on the shelf and is pretty to look at, it's something I can actually use. We won't talk about the others in the closet that I can also use. Ahem...
Speaking of Main Street, U.S.A., I miss it so much and can hardly wait until I can pick up my favorite Starbucks drink at the Main Street Bakery then find a place to sit down and absorb all that magic while I sip my coffee; just like Minnie is doing under a pink polka-dotted umbrella on that Dooney!
In the meantime, take a look at this Disney+ playlist that includes some great Disney classics that – if you use your imagination – can transport you straight to Magic Kingdom.

I also have an honorable mention that is not actually a Disney film, but it gives me that warm and fuzzy magic that I love every time I watch it – Chitty Chitty Bang Bang! I didn't add it to the list because it's, of course, not available on Disney+, but I still love it anyway. Does it remind anyone else of a Disney film or is it just me being weird?
Can you think of any others that didn't make the list? Let me know in the comments section and tell me which attraction or area in the Magic Kingdom or Disneyland that it transports you too.
