Since we didn't really go far this past summer, we decided to have a get-away weekend at Disneyland Paris. In January. When there was snow forecast. I know! But in the end it turned out alright, despite the eternal GPS argument and "are you sure this is the right way?" drama. And I snuck in some pics to illustrate it all. So here we go on a "magical" top ten list of things you can only (ok, almost only) see at Disney parks.
1. Grown men and women wearing Mickey/Minnie ears. Sometimes it is in the form of a winter hat or headband. I saw entire groups of women wearing them, no matter their age. I wonder if they ever wear them on other occasions. No matter. What happens in Disney, stays in Disney.
4. In Disneyland Paris you will see signs reminding you not to smoke. And you will see park visitors (I'm guessing mostly French!) blatantly disregarding said rule.
5. Possibly the biggest Christmas tree outside of Rockefeller Center. The French extend the festive season into January so we got to see the mega Disney tree in all its glory.
7. Serious Disney bling. For the wealthier visitors, why not take home a glass version of a Disney castle. For fifteen thousand euros, it's a steal! Or a tiara for your little one.
