Disneyland Paris Christmas Season Update



Here is the awaited Disneyland Paris Christmas update, and it's a big one. All pictures as usual are in high-res wallpaper size, so don't hesitate to double-click on each to see them in big size. Let's go!

The weather was so and so the day the pictures were shoot, but the sun came back in the afternon. Let's begin by pictures of the entrance and Main Street. The first picture is a panoramic picture i took with my IPhone using a wonderful Iphone application called "Panorama". If you own an IPhone, i highly recommand it to you. There is not a lot of people on the picture but it's because at that time of the day guests are in other parts of the park!



First, pictures of Town Square and Main Street U.S.A
















Let's move inside Frontierland where guests can meet Santa Claus at the Woody Round-up and enjoy a country music orchestra at the Cowboy Cookout Barbecue.


















We are now moving to Fantasyland where guests can walk through the Christmas village located near the Old Mill. Good news, in the meantime the sun came back and the sky was blue again.















A cool cast member at "Le Coffre a jouets" little shop where you can find some Wall-E robotic figures. If you see him, give him my best regards.



There is a place in the park where it's Christmas all year long: inside Sleeping Beauty Castle Christmas shop.




If you're wondering where were the guests during that day, well, here they are, watching the late afternoon Christmas parade!




As usual with Christmas decorations, it's when the night fall that it becomes magical...













A salute to the team of the City Hall on Town Square. It don't looks like, but this is a rare picture, not because they're all together, but because there is no guests asking for informations, and it's the first time i saw City Hall with no guests at all!



Don't go away, as it's not over yet! We are now moving to the Walt Disney Studios! Most of the Christmas decorations are located at the entrance.









What is great during winter is that the night is falling before closing time, so it's the perfect time of the year to enjoy the beautiful lighting of Hollywood Boulevard and Tower of terror.





O-kay, that should do it for today. This is the end of the DLP Christmas update, be sure to come back on monday for the Tokyo Disneyland Christmas update!

Hello Alain and congratulations for the great pictures! I agree that the quality of that iPhone-made panorama is amazing.
Did you make all the pics with your iPhone? I don't remember that mine was making such great night shots, with its tiny lens...

Something else : the scafholding hiding the facade of the Studio 1 seems to be here still. Any news about these refurbishment works? Looks very long for a simple paint job...

Hello, Alex, no, only the panoramic shot was done with my IPhone. You can't have these great night shots with the IPhone.
And yes, the scaffolding of the Studio 1 i stil there. It's true that it takes a long time to repaint, but i don't know why, sorry!
