Host a Disney-Themed Virtual Party
As many of us have learned throughout the past few years, virtual parties are a totally fun way to celebrate with friends and family that live long-distance! And why not celebrate New Year’s Eve with a Disney virtual party?!
Maybe everyone can wear Minnie Ears, or dress as their favorite Disney villain — the possibilities are endless! You could even hold a virtual Disney karaoke contest with Bluetooth microphones like this Frozen 2 Bluetooth Microphone found on Amazon!

GroupWatch Disney+ Shows
Did you know that there’s a way to watch shows and movies on Disney+ with friends and family — from a distance? It’s called GroupWatch, and this setting lets groups of up to seven people watch together while the content is synced. Watch one of the newest Disney+ films, Encanto, now streaming!
All you have to do is press the GroupWatch icon and you can then invite up to six other Disney+ subscribers. While everyone is watching together, you can even react with emojis so you know your friends are crying along with you!
