Put some Disney Parks magic on your phone this Wallpaper Wednesday

Wallpapers are important. They can give our phone a new feel, even if only for a little while. Some of us change wallpapers as often as we change shirts (sometimes to match), while some of us set one wallpaper and forget it, and that's a shame. A good wallpaper can be a pick-me-up, can remind us of better times (and upcoming times). They can show off what's important to us, be it a picture of the grandkids or an emblem of your favorite house in Game of Thrones. In an effort to brighten your screen, and maybe your day, we present an offering of wonderful wallpapers to grace your smartphone.

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.

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.
