Not A Creature Was Stirring, Not Even…


Not only is Disneyland Paris’ Main Street the most beautiful and detailed Main Street I’ve ever seen, but it’s also the most beautiful Main Street at Christmas. This is in large part to the Christmas tree (which I’m told dates back to 1992 and is due to be replaced next year, but has aged quite well), but is also due to the whole Town Square area, which is filled with small pine trees and fake snow (or fake and real snow, depending upon when you visit). It also doesn’t hurt that Le Château de la Belle au Bois Dormant looks even more resplendent with its icicle lights than it normally does, and that other decorative touches are added up and down Main Street. Besides Main Street and the north corner of Frontierland, the Christmas decorations are fairly subdued, but it definitely feels like Christmas on Main Street in Disneyland Paris.

This is my favorite view of Disneyland Paris at Christmas; I could have stood up here for hours just gazing out at the park (definitely make sure to click the photo to view it large). For some more of my photos of Disneyland Paris at Christmas, check out this post on the Disney Parks Blog yesterday.

With Christmas only a week away, I know it’s a busy time of year for us all. I’m trying my best to get a new post up everyday and have a few longer ones that are each in half-finished draft form that I hope to have done this week. But, between long hours at the office and getting ready for Christmas at the last minute, it has been tough. Hope you aren’t all having as chaotic of holiday seasons as us!

    Now that Disney is publishing your photos on multiple blogs that they own, can you two finally admit you are getting checks from the mouse?

    Tom, did you manage to get any pictures of the steaming coffee cup sign on Main Street? Love that Sign, part of what Makes DLP’s Main Street the best world wide.

    I’ve been to the Magic Kingdom and Disneyland but in my opinion neither can compare to Disneyland Paris. I believe it is the ‘perfect’ vision the magic kingdom park though I enjoy things unique to each of them. Next year we thought we might head back to Disneyland but we’ve decided we’d much rather return to Paris. Simply beautiful.
