This was my first visit to any Disney park, and it was amazing!!! I got to feel (and act) like a kid again. And the christmasdecor made it extra special. Already looking forward to my next visit.

I think it would be interesting to go to Disneyland Paris during Christmas because it actually gets snow. Being Canadian, I can't really imagine Christmas without snow and the fake stuff from the American parks doesn't fit the bill... However, my trip to Paris was at the end of January 2008, after the Christmas decor went down. The only Disney resort I've been to with Christmas decor up was Tokyo.
