If no one in your family has taken part in one of these, Twitter watch parties are a great way to enjoy the experience of watching a movie with tons of other fans from the comfort of your own home.

What makes a watch party with #shopDisneyMovieTime different than, say, Disney simply posting a video the “Happily Ever After” Fireworks spectacular is that you will be able to share the present moment with other Disney fans watching the movie at the exact same time, and you can comment and share your thoughts on your favorite moments with everyone else.

Now, we all wish we could be watching a Disney movie together on the lawn of one of the Walt Disney World Resort Hotels or cuddled up in southern California at a Disneyland hotel, but a twitter watch party is the next best thing. And The Little Mermaid and Moana are both great movies to help us start getting in the mood for another unforgettable summer of adventures.

The watch parties are also just the latest way Disney has worked to bring the magic of its parks and films to its fans at home during the past several weeks. Spearheaded by the #DisneyMagicMoments campaign, Disney has delivered streams of fan-favorite parades in shows from Disney Parks all over the world in stunning HD, super-secret recipes of theme park snacks, and special tributes.
