PHOTOS: See Disneyland Paris Dusted In the First Snowfall of the Season

A bout of cold weather is currently moving through France, and Disneyland Paris experienced its first snowfall. Disney Parks Blog shared a handful of photos showcasing the flurry that has covered many of the park’s iconic attractions and areas.

Guests entering Disneyland Park are initially greeted by the snow-dusted Mickey Mouse entrance florals. His eyes are completely whited out, and the rest of his ears, head, and smile are lightly covered in snow.

Phantom Manor looks even more mysterious with a light layer of snow. On average, Paris can get as little as three days of snow per year — and there have been some years with no snowfall, according to the Disney Parks Blog.

This snow-covered update comes just one week ahead of the Disneyland Hotel reopening to guests following its extensive reimagining. Guests will be able to visit and stay at the hotel starting January 25, 2024.

Back in December 2023, Disneyland Paris President Natacha Rafalski shared photos of Walt Disney Imagineering adding the final touches to the hotel. The reimagining has been described as a “royal transformation,” pulling inspiration from Disney Princesses. The Royal Banquet Restaurant at the hotel will feature artwork based on Disney Villains as well as the princesses.

Snow in Adventureland

Adventureland covered in snow is an unusual sight, but is still beautiful to see.

Disneyland Paris also recently debuted its new drone show, Disney Electrical Sky Parade, as part of their Disney Symphony of Colors celebration. Not only are drones the star of the show, but the drones also shoot out smoke and pyrotechnics.
