Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

It's great during the holidays - everyone is happy and busy, and there are always lots going on. Walt Disney World is usually a very busy place, but even more so during the holiday season! Christmas is happening all around the World.

In Fort Wilderness the tree is up.

And the Contemporary resort is also in the Christmas spirit, with a special gingerbread tree...

And a real one outside.

The House of Bread

It wouldn't be the holidays in Walt Disney World without some gingerbread houses!

Take a look at last year's Gingerbread house from the Grand Floridian, famed for also 'housing' a shop where you can buy pieces of gingerbread! Perfect.

Christmas In The Grand

The Grand Floridian is a beautiful  hotel, and during the Holiday season this statement is no exception. It is a beautifully decorated hotel, as you can see from the entryway alone!

Look at those garlands, aren't they fitting with the overall theme of the Resort?

And take a look at the poinsetta-themed trees around the area.

And of course, Christmas wouldn't be the same without some beautiful snow-like animal decor!

The Cops Are Coming

You better watch out the next time you visit Main Street U.S.A., Paris. It turns out that the police are happy to take you away at a moment's notice!

And judging by these convicts in the Main Street Police Dept. Paddy Wagon, they are getting younger and younger!

Dancing With Paris

The gardens in front of the Disneyland Hotel, Paris, are some of the most serene and picturesque areas around the theme parks. And there is usually some beautiful animal topiaries placed here, perfectly fitting in with the Fantasia theme of the Disneyland Hotel.

And for the 20th Anniversary of Paris, Hyacinth Hippo is making her dancing look like a piece of cake!

Troops To The Ready

When you visit Toy Story Playland in Disneyland Paris, there are so many sites and attractions to take in and enjoy. For example, the brilliant yet simple Toy Soldier Parachute Drop.

As you can see, the small capsules take six persons into the air, and slowly drop you to the ground, much like the toy soldiers in Andy's bedroom! But look closely to the hut nearby, and you will find the name of these troopers.

Fort Emery Paratroopers

A great nod to the home of Pixar, Emeryville!

One Sword to Rule Them All

A staple in Fantasylands around the world is the sword of Excalibur.

Legend has it that Excalibur was the sword of King Arthur, and ownership of said sword may grant the owner the right to rule the Kingdom! As such, it is a truly magical piece of weaponry...

He who succeeds in withdrawing the sword from the stone will be proclaimed King! 

This Princess had a go at withdrawing the sword, but decided at the last minute that it might be best to leave it for others, not of Royal blood.

A Quick Bite...At The Last Chance

It's been a while since we had a quick bite at a restaurant in Disneyland Paris, so today we're going to stop by the Last Chance Cafe in Frontierland and see if we can have a wee bite of something tasty!

The cafe is situated around from the entrance to Frontierland, and a nice change to The Lucky Nugget which is also nearby. You can buy some great Western grub, chips and bites, and such. And a good place to grab a beer or a soft drink.

There's not a massive amount of seating, but due to the location there are usually tables emptying regularly. So be sure to stop by and rest your weary cowboy boots!

Sell, Sell, Sell

In case you are wondering what Luigi's Casa Della Tires sells at Disney's California Adventure, look no further.

Luigi Sells
"Only The Best"

Such tyres as Fettuccini, Show Stopper, Glamour Grip, Safety Treads, Tortellini, Glidewell and the infamous Lightyear Radials.

Luigi knows what you want!

Another Welcome To Adventure

Amongst the many reasons I love Disneyland Paris, the many different ways to enter the different lands is a big part of my love for this Parc. There are various unique entrances, and exits, that it is easy to come across new pathways - or just to simply lose yourself in a new land!

Take, for example, when you pass from Fantasyland to Adventureland. This is the entryway that will greet you.

Perfectly fitting in with Fantasyland, you have no doubt that you are leaving a 'land and entering a new!

Which Way To Exit

After visiting the Phantom Manor in Disneyland Paris, you will be given a choice of sorts when you leave the attraction.

You can decide to exit, or Sortie, or visit the poor souls in Boot Hill. The choice, is yours.
