Christmas Weekend at Disneyland Paris 2015 - Trip Report Index


Welcome to my Christmas at Disneyland Paris 2015 Trip Report - I know I'm very late writing it here on The Dibb, but since all my WDW trip reports are here, I wanted to include this one!

Rather than break this report up into days, as I do with my Florida trip reports (links in sig), it is broken down into parts of the Christmas weekend we spent there - you'll see from the index below!

This report will be more photographs, than words, but I will give my thoughts and tips along the way!

We went to Disneyland Paris with zero plans, didnt book any meals, and just went with the flow. It felt so strange to not plan anything at all compared with our trips to Walt Disney World, which I plan for months in advance! We went for 3 nights/4 days, with my sister, brother-in-law, and niece. We had a wonderful time, and it was a lovely way to spend the festive period.

The Cast

Me Michelle, 39 years old. So generally, Im the planner of Disney holidays but other than booking the hotel and travel, I did zero planning! Im also the photographer and trip report writer. Im a plus size chick, and write about certain things from my perspective, so youll find plus size rider guides for the rides I went on. Im currently a size 30/32, so for your plus-size worries when visiting Disney theme parks, Im your gal! This was my second visit to Disneyland Paris.

My husband Steve, 43 years old. Much like our holidays to Walt Disney World, he was the videographer, pack horse, chief keeper of documents, and money manager in France. He kept a track of every euro that we spent! This was his second visit to Disneyland Paris.

My son Liam, 16 years old. And Steves step-son. He was given the option to come to Disneyland Paris, or stay in the UK with his Dad for Christmas. He chose Disneyland! He was great with his little cousin, and thanks to a lack of wi-fi in the parks, and the hotel, didnt spend so much time looking down at his phone! This was his first visit to Disneyland Paris.

My sister Jo, 31 years old. Stayed at a different hotel with her family to us, but, much like me, wanted to get away for the Christmas period. She wasnt very well during our trip, but was a complete trooper! This was her second visit to Disneyland Paris.

My brother-in-law Phil, 33 years old. And of course, my sisters husband. So chilled out, hes almost horizontal! This was his second visit to Disneyland Paris.

My niece Sephy, 3 years old. And of course, Jo & Phils daughter. A cutie pie, and chatter box! She was as good as gold throughout our days at the parks not crying or moaning when having to stand in line. It was magical to see Disney through this little ones eyes. My next mission is to get her to Walt Disney World! This was her first visit to Disneyland Paris.

If youve read my previous Disney trip reports (Halloween In The Wilderness 2015, Dine Around Disney 2014, Back To The Magic 2013, The First Time 2011, Disneyland Paris 2010), youll know that my reports are photo heavy as many as a post will allow!

The camera I used is a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200.
I also take photos on my iPhone6.

Videos are taken on our Panasonic V720.
Any photo editing is done with Paint Shop Pro X3, Photoshop CS5 or the Camera+ iPhone app.
