St Patrick's Day at Disneyland Paris!

Welcome to the first stop aboard Magical Blogorail Black!
 Enjoy the ride as we discuss Springtime at Disney!

Originally I had started to research Easter in Disneyland Paris ... but there's very little information about this season online! I started to get worried until I realised I wasn't the only one ... Steve over at Dedicated to Dlp seems to have had the same problem! (Thank goodness I found this Steve ... I was going a bit coo-coo not being able to find anything!)

So I decided to focus on something else that happens during Spring - St Patrick's Day!

St Patrick's Day falls on Sunday 17th March this year - similarly there is little information online about it's celebration in Disneyland Paris for this year, but I'd imagine it'll be quite similar to what happened last year.

Last years festivities included a short, but very special St Patrick's Day Parade including Mickey and Minnie both in cute Irish attire!

Here are a couple of videos, the first from Jess DisneylandParisVidéos, which shows the parade emerging from the start of the parade route up near It's a Small World.

And this one from Redox Toon shows the parade down near Main Street Station.

The Irish dancing in this one is just fantastic! And the girls dresses are beautiful!

At night, there is also a special St Patrick's Day firework display! Check out this awesome video from Marc van der Zaag, it gave me goosebumps as Disney fireworks always do! The music is just fantastic!!

I'm not Irish ... but I am Scottish! I find our traditional music quite similar ... the heavy use of drums and bagpipes during the parade and fireworks leaves me bursting with Scottish pride! (and pride for my Irish neighbours too of course!)

I also wanted to show you guys this super cute Disneyland Paris pin for St Patrick's Day 2013!

 I saw this over at Dedicated to Dlp, where you can see all the new pin releases for March this year! I just love that they've used Ariel with her red hair ... and her dress is so pretty! If I was visiting during St Patrick's Day this is definitely a pin I would pick up!

Thank you for joining me today! Your next stop on the Magical Blogorail Loop is The Magical Mouse Pad!
