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.
Heavy snowfall in the Paris area on Saturday (December 18) and into Sunday morning left both Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios under several inches of snow. Despite this, both parks opened as usual although some outdoor attractions such as Big Thunder Mountain and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril were closed throughout the day.
Rainfall on Sunday afternoon resulted in most walkways in the parks being covered in thick slush, but Disney cast members were soon able to brush most of this away. As a result, the evening Disney's Once Upon A Dream parade was able to take place as scheduled.
On Monday, the resort was again covered in several inches of fresh snow in the morning. However, it was able to keep almost all attractions (including the outdoor rollercoasters) operating throughout the day. With rain not coming until late in the evening, guests were able to enjoy the photogenic scenes of snow for the entire day.
Theme Park Tourist's Nick and Natalie witnessed the snowfall during a trip to Disneyland Paris to review the park's Enchanted Christmas events. We'll be publishing a full review of the celebrations in the coming days, but in the meantime you can view our special feature - In Photos: Disneyland Paris in the snow.
