The Different Sides of Le Château

Continuing on from our last post on Thursday (sorry for no posting yesterday!), I wanted to show you a little bit more about the beautiful Le Château de la Belle au Bois Dormant from Disneyland Park in Paris.
As you probably know, for the 50th celebration of Disneyland, their Sleeping Beauty Castle had a little bit of a makeover; and for the Happiest Celebration on Earth (at the same time) Cinderella Castle in Florida had some sparkle too. So, for Disneyland Resort Paris' 15th Anniversary, they decided to update le Château too:
For le Château's makeover, there features 15 candles upon the Castle, each representing a year that the park has been opened. Each candle is held by, or represented with, a different Disney character. Can you spot them all? I'll tell you what characters are holding candles in tomorrow's post. Of course, le Château is just as beautiful at night.
Throughout the Christmas and Holiday season, the Castle changes into a magnificent Winter Wonderland. The whole Park gets into the spirit, but the centre-piece is truly the Castle. The hub also has a stage, where every night Mickey and the gang help to light up le Château de la Belle au Bois Dormant as if covered by snow.

Hopefully you enjoyed some of these pictures, showing you Parc Disneyland's Castle. Don't forget to come back here tomorrow, when I'll take you around the inside of le Château - one of my favourite secret corners of the park.
