Today, we’re featuring the attraction in our newest desktop/smartphone wallpaper created by artist Jason “Tiki” Tackett.

I’m so glad to see that those “other” 50-year old attractions are getting some love too! I was worried that it’s a small world would steal the spotlight. Carousel of Progress has that great vintage charm to it, while still looking toward the future

Nice to see the Disneyland (’67) and Disney World (’75) eras getting a nod in the image!

Brett – if you go out to the Dismey Store online, there is a Limited Edition attraction poster parks t-shirt this week for the Carousel of Progress 50tn anniversary. They are only available to order through this coming Sunday, April 27. A nice addition is they added a kids size. I ordered mine this morning!

The screen on my laptop is 1280×800, so I guess I can’t use any of these. :(

Mary ~ Download the 2560×1600 wallpaper and use the “stretch” or “fit” option in your desktop settings to fit it to your screen. :)
