Desktop Wallpaper: Mickey climbs the Matterhorn

30 Aug

At Disneyland this summer, as part of the still-going-and-going celebration of Disneyland’s 50th Anniversary “Happiest Homecoming on Earth,” they’re running an occasional brief show where Mickey climbs the Matterhorn, with a little encouragement from Minnie and Goofy, as well as silent help from an anonymous friend. Here’s a shot of Mickey at the top of the Matterhorn, with streamers flying to announce his victory:

It’s a fairly decent resolution, and should work well as a desktop on many systems. I edited it a bit, removing most traces of the wires on which Tinkerbell flies during the fireworks.

    I was with my DS14, DD16 and another 15yo boy watching Mickey make his assent. While our attention was focused on the mountain, Prince Charming and Cinderella passed behind us. PC learned over to DS and said, “Five bucks says he falls.”

    How cool was that?

    Ooh, I always hoped that sweet Prince Charming had a bad-boy side. Excellent.

    How cool it is to know that our first trip to Anaheim in about 1974 launched Kitty on this lifelong adventure.
