This weekend, we kicked off summer with 24 straight hours of fun at the Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort. And during our live blog coverage from both coasts, we shared nearly 50 stories beginning with the official start to the “Coolest Summer Ever” in Magic Kingdom Park at the Walt Disney World and then continuing with coverage from the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration. Here’s a look at some of our favorite highlights.

During the 24 hours, many of you watched the experiences on our live video feeds and showed off your Disney Side with some amazing costumes.

You may have noticed, like I did, that the Disney Parks Blog is all decked out in its Tomorrowland best this week. Seeing all those great images made me think: What if Space Mountain had a never before discovered, hidden rocket launch platform that could take you to places you’ve only dreamed of? So, I decided to use that inspiration to draw up this exclusive desktop/mobile wallpaper to share with you guys.

Hope you enjoy, and see you in Tomorrowland!
