Magic Kingdom content is good, but rough around edges.

A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this website.

Educational Value

Kids can learn about topics such as drawing and cooking. They can view videos of stories being read, which may offer some language, listening, and reading practice. Other items involve creative pursuits like music. Some touch on animal conservation, Earth Day, and related ecological subjects. A number of items on the site are just-for-fun viewing options, but some can provide information or skills practice -- and may spark kids' interest in learning about new subjects.

Positive Messages

Various items emphasize respecting the environment, learning new skills, and exploring the world.

Violence
Sex
Language
Consumerism

The site navigation includes links to Disney+, an online shop, and promotional pages for movies and Disney parks.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know Disney Magic Moments has videos and activities that the site says were picked to inspire imagination and discovery. While a number are viewing-based, some involve hands-on activities like cooking and making crafts. Kids are asked to enter a birth date when they click on an item, and if they're under 13, they'll be told they're not eligible to view that content. The site has no inappropriate content, although it does have some pages related to Disney+, an online shop, and other Disney park information. A related page on the Disney Parks blog that lists some of the same items may cause some confusion, if people happen to see it. That page seems to feature more Disney-centric content, though, than items from both Disney and external sources and also organizes its content differently.

What's it about?

Launched in April 2020, DISNEY MAGIC MOMENTS offers stories, videos, activities, and other items from sources like Marvel, Pixar, Star Wars, Walt Disney Animation Studios, and National Geographic. A video series, for instance, features Olaf from Frozen. Kids can also learn to draw Disney characters or make Mickey-shaped pretzels, watch celebrities read stories, or take a virtual theme park ride. Generally, the items on the site are housed in other locations, such as the Disney fan club site. Items are also listed on a page on the Disney Parks blog.

Is it any good?

Disney fans should enjoy the mix of items featured on this site. While Disney Magic Moments involve many kid-friendly viewing options and activities, there are also selections adults may enjoy, such as the virtual theme park ride experiences and recipes. A few offer some educational value. Kids can check out ebooks, for instance, or take a drawing tutorial to learn how to sketch their favorite characters.

The items on the site are generally linked to from other sites -- clicking on the Star Wars paper craft project, for example, will take you to StarWars.com. Kids can scroll through items from left to right by clicking on arrows. But entering a term in the search bar at the top of the page, which returns results from numerous Disney sites, seems to be the only other way to find things. Many of the videos and other items that are currently available are enjoyable, and site is very new -- it was just announced in early April 2020 -- so more structure may be on the way. But the current structure makes the format feel a little thrown together, though -- which is a little surprising, considering it's from Disney. Hopefully, in the coming months, the site will feature a more user-friendly format to facilitate kids finding its content.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about why reading is important -- and can be fun. What topics is your child interested in learning more about?

  •  

  • Clicking on items on the site generally takes you to other Disney or external websites that have safe, age-appropriate content, but how can kids tell if a website they’re taken to from another site is OK to look at? What signs might indicate a site isn’t meant for kids?

  • If you were in charge of one of Disney's theme parks, what would you add to it? What would you take away? Why?
