So continuing the theme of reminiscing about time at Disney parks at Christmas, let me tell you about the couple of visits to Disneyland Paris during the holiday season.
Our first visit at Christmas was in early December 2000, we visited over a weekend spending 3 nights at Hotel Cheyenne. We even managed a day visiting Paris with the highlights of the day being The Eiffel Tower and Picasso Museum. The weather was cold, although the snow falling in the Disney Village was man-made! There was a lovely Christmas market laid out through the Disney Village and I remember that everywhere seemed to smell of warm mulled wine, it was all very Christmassy, there was even an ice-rink outside the Hotel New York.

We had also arranged to have a character meal, a buffet tea with a special birthday cake. Our daughter who was just over one at the time didn't quite know what to make of all the characters, but I think the abundance of cakes and sweets made up for that :)
