I've been to Disneyland Paris a few times. But never during the Christmas season.
So, I'm considering going this winter. Can anyone tell me what the Parks are like during that time? Any seasonal overlays, parades, etc.. Thanks for your help.
I've been once to DLP during the Christmas season. It was a lot more crowded than during my other visits. I even think during Christmas there are more people in the parks than during the summer season. In recent years the main park reached capacity on the weekends.
Usually the parks get a Christmas overlay. Main Street USA is decorated with illuminated Princess lampposts. I'm not a big fan of those, but they look nice when it's dark. In recent years the parade wasn't changed for Christmas, but a Santa float was added. Last year it's a small world got a Christmas overlay, too.
According to your name I guess that you are from NY City, which means you are used to snow and cold. In Paris it can be very cold during winter time and snow is also part of the climate. Disneyland Paris looks amazing when covered in snow. I really like going to DLP in winter.
-Disney Dreams! (regular version, Christmas version may begin in 2013). Disney Dreams may replace The Castle Lighting Ceremony.
-Disney's Fantillusion Parade (regular version)

-Disney's Stars and Cars (Christmas version)
-Mickey's Winter Wonderland
-The Christmas Tree Ceremony on Town Square

-Belle's Christmas Village

-"it's snowing on Main Street USA"
-Santa Claus Meet'n'Greet at Cottonwood Creek Ranch.
-And all the regular shows.
I've been to DLP once for a new year's, Rockefeller Center pales compared to it. Main Street alone puts you right into a Dickensian Christmas mood. You may be in France but even the CMs at DLP know how to get into the spirit.
