Put some Disney Parks magic on your phone this Wallpaper Wednesday

You don't have to pull out a complex new theme like Deadpool to bring a breath of fresh air to your home screen. A new wallpaper can do wonders, and launchers like Action Launcher can re-theme your entire home screen around a good wallpaper. In our effort to help brighten your device — and maybe your day — we're compiling some wallpapers for you to try out.

If you've got a wallpaper you use everywhere, share it in the comments below! We're always looking for something new. Now get your wallpaper picker ready and see what's in store this week.

Sorcerer Mickey

Mysteries and magic, visions fantastic, leading to strange and wondrous dreams...

Some imagination, huh?

Fantasmic was one of the locations I worked on my Disney College Program. This show is always gonna have a special place in my heart, and with this beautiful wallpaper, it has a special place on my home screen as well. This dark wallpaper from Disney Parks Blog makes me want to grab a souvenir popcorn tub and grab a spot (preferably on the aisle) at the Hollywood Hills Amphitheater.

Hotel Hightower

Take your chances at Hotel Hightower's Tower of Terror

"I've never been able to prove anything, but I've come to this conclusion: the hotel is cursed!"

Walt Disney World's Tower of Terror will always be my tower, but of all the Towers around the world, the one that fascinates me the most would be the only Tower of Terror not to hold the Twilight Zone name. Japanese audiences weren't familiar with the CBS show, so Walt Disney Imagineering came up with a newer, complex story for Hotel Hightower. The architecture is also a departure from the other Towers, and it provides for some impressive photography.

Discoveryland

3... 2... 1... Blastoff!

Discoveryland's unique take on the future shows us a world of tomorrow that makes steampunk fans faint, but the biggest departure is the Victorian-inspired facade for Space Mountain. I mean, just look at that cannon! If the spires weren't right in front of the barrel, you'd really believe it could shoot you to the moon. The time-lapse shot also gives a beautiful effect to the bay besides Space Mountain, and to the Astro Orbiter in the distance.

Hong Kong Castle

It's not often you see a castle gift-wrapped for guests.

It's always interesting to see how Disney dresses up the castles around the world. Nothing may ever beat the jaw-dropping PINK of the 25th Anniversary Cinderella Castle, but the tinsel wrappes around the spires and turrets of Sleeping Beauty Castle in Hong Kong Disneyland are quite unique.

Also, it's not quite a hidden Mickey, but in the lights from the carousel shining through the walkway are smiling at you on this wallpaper.

Disneyland Forever

When you wish upon a star...

Turn on your light! Come on and live the magic!

Disneyland is a wonderful way to spend a birthday, and one of the things I looked forward to seeing the most at the park was Disneyland Forever, a show that not only covered the castle in projects, but all of Main Street USA. This fantastic composition shot shows off some of Main Street's lights (and the inflatable sea spires from Under the Sea) and lets the sky come alive with beautiful fireworks above a bedazzled Sleeping Beauty Castle.

  • Definitely will put the Mickey one on my tablet! :D
  • I know, isn't it great? (I blacked out the Disney Parks logo so it wouldn't be sticking out behind my dock, if that bugs you when you set it). Posted via the Android Central App
  • +1 Posted via the Android Central App
  • Thanks, Ara! Anything that gets me into a Disney frame of mind is a good thing indeed.
  • You should see my YouTube history... and my Play Music playlists...
  • I wish I could live in disney. Maybe a room in cinderella's castle or something Posted via the Android Central App
  • The suite in Cinderella Castle doesn't have any actual exterior windows, but if I could live somewhere, I'd want it to be in a loft above Main Street, Tomorrowland or World Showcase. Good access to the parks but not so ridiculously crowded that you can't get to/from your apartment during peak hours. Well, maybe Main Street, but that's what we have Utilidors for!
  • +1 those are better places. I haven't been there in a minute so I forgot the names but u nailed it. Near that secret club would be a nice spot too Posted via the Android Central App
  • I would definitely use that Sorcerer Mickey wallpaper except I would then have to find suitable ringtones and notifications for a complete theme.

  • I like the Mickey one but can't figure out how to download it from my phone. Posted via the Android Central App
  • click the link in that article, and then when the Disney Parks website loads pick your resolution and you should be able to long-press the image that lods and save it
  • I always love seeing your homescreens. You've got it tricked out with Disney ride logo folders and shortcuts to apps. Love to know whether those icons are available to download or if it's all stuff you created yourself.
