  • I love the wallpaper! I have a question, though. A few years back on the Disney Facebook, there were other wallpapers. One was another Christmas wallpaper with a cream background and a vintage Peter Pan in the window scene. I was wondering where I could find it again seeing as it’s not on Facebook anymore.
