Sleeping Beauty Castle in the snow

The Disneyland Paris Resort has been blanketed in snow for the second time in December, resulting in a stunning backdrop for the Enchanted Christmas 2010 celebrations.

Theme Park Tourist's Nick and Natalie witnessed the snowfall during a trip to Disneyland Paris to review the Enchanted Christmas events. We were lucky enough to see both Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios layered with snow, creating a festive theme that Disney's Imagineers could only have dreamed of.

We'll be publishing a full review of Enchanted Christmas 2010 in the coming days, but in the meantime you can view a selection of photographs of Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios in the snow below:
