Disney fans have always come up with creative ways to replicate the Disney Parks experience at home and now Disney itself is getting in on the fun. The newly launched Disney Paper Parks series are printable activity sheets to make 3D versions of Disney parks favorites. First up is Main Street U.S.A. and Magic Happens.  

UPDATE (7/9/2020):

  • Disney Paper Parks Part II is now available to download and print.
  • This expansion adds the remaining buildings on Main Street as well as some additional Magic Happens floats.
  • Each section is free to download and includes instructions on how to assemble the land and parade floats.

  • Fans can color and decorate Main Street however they want, whether keeping true to the original or coming up with an imaginative new look!
  • For more information, check out the Disney Parks Blog.

What’s happening:

  • The Disney Parks Blog has found a fun way to bring the magic of Disneyland’s Main Street U.S.A. and the new Magic Happens parade right to fans’ homes.
  • This morning, they shared details about their recent collaboration with Walt Disney Imagineering to create a mini Main Street out of paper that anyone can assemble at home.

  • The Disney Parks Blog asked Imagineers Stephanie Jazmines and Amy Young from Walt Disney Imagineering Design + Planning Studio to craft a simple, yet detailed project for fans of all ages. The result? A beautiful version of the first land guest encounter upon arrival at Disneyland park.

  • Right now, Disney Paper Parks only consists of Main Street U.S.A. and Magic Happens floats, but the Parks Blog promises that more options are coming soon!

Tips for success:

  • Disney Paper Parks projects require the use of scissors or glue and folding along dotted lines in specific directions.
  • For best results, Disney suggests printing the sheets at their actual size, not scaling them to fit the page.

What they’re saying:

  • Bob Weis, president of Walt Disney Imagineering: “We have always been inspired by the incredible passion of our Disney park fans. Seeing your creativity and shared love for the experiences Imagineers create has really lifted our spirits.”
  • Stephanie Jazmines: “With today’s increasing emphasis on the digital, it’s always rewarding to step back and remember what you’re capable of making with some imagination and your own two hands.”
  • Amy Young: “It’s amazing what you can create with a single piece of paper. So, grab your art supplies, pack your patience and take your time to create your very own paper park. We are so excited to see Disney fans bring these pages to life!”

Good to know:

  • Disney is reminding fans that, “by downloading Disney Paper Parks, you acknowledge and agree that these materials are being provided to you for personal, non-commercial use.’
