Step into your own Christmas fairy tale at Disneyland® Paris. Discover the magic of Christmas and join in on all the fun and between November and January. Watch something magical happen at Disneyland® Paris as you combine fairy tales and the wonderful world of Disney at Christmas time. For many families, Christmas is not the same without cartoon characters such as Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Pluto or Chip and Dale as they make their preparations for this festive holiday. If this sounds like your family, then combine the holidays with a trip to Disneyland® and surround yourselves with holiday decorations, snowflakes and festive spirit. So what are the best ways to wrap yourself up in the festive spirit?
Visit Santa in his grotto
There is Santa, and there is Santa ‘Disney-style’. Father Christmas is waiting for you and your family to visit him in his grotto and have your photo taken. Be sure to visit him before 25 December, as he will take a long and well-deserved holiday after that.
See spectacular Christmas lights
The streets are filled with dazzling decorations like garlands, ribbons and glistening lights that illuminate the whole park. The small details of each decoration combined cast a magical blanket over the park making it feel more special than ever. The decorations alone are worth a visit as they are truly spectacular. If you have a very special Christmas wish this year, head on over to the giant tree with the glowing star at its top, and wish away. Who knows, your wish might even come true! Mickey and his friends will turn on the Christmas tree lights during a special ceremony, an event not to be missed.

Disney Dreams®! of Christmas is a show you shouldn’t miss.
