We kicked off the first week of February with our first-ever live stream of “Fantasmic!” from Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

This guest-favorite show explores the magic of Mickey Mouse’s imagination – and the adventure he embarks upon when the Disney villains show up to try to turn his dream “into a nightmare Fantasmic.”


During the live stream, you voted to unlock a new Sorcerer Mickey wallpaper. Disney artist Mike Britton created the wallpaper that celebrates the color of “Fantasmic!”

Be sure to check out the terms of use about using the wallpaper before you download it.
