I'm planning a trip this Christmas with my fiance to Disneyland Paris. We're both really excited but we're a bit stumped when it comes to Christmas day dining. I've seen loads of advertisement for Christmas Eve and New Years meals, but we always have our traditional turkey dinner on Christmas day. We're looking for somewhere to dine on the 25th that serves turkey, mashed potato, veggies, gravy etc. (a bit like a thanksgiving meal). We've been to Disneyland 3 times over the past two years, two July trips, and a February trip but have never been during the Christmas season and just dined at fast-food outlets during our previous visits so we don't know much about the 'table service' or 'buffet' restaurants.
Another problem we're having is deciding what hotel to stay at. We've never had enough money to 'splurge' on staying in Disney property so we've always gone offsite, but this year we have a lot more cash than usual as our Christmas was intentionally going to be spent at Disney World Orlando, however my partner hasn't been able to get the time off work we needed for our trip. So we settled on Eurodisney and have the extra cash to spurge on Disney resorts. We've settled on 3 nights at the Disneyland Hotel but we want a different hotel to end the trip, we were thinking along the lines of Sequoia or Newport Bay Club. We want a 'Christmasy' resort so again your thoughts would be much appropriated!
My last question is about the weather. When we were there February 2012 there was not a cloud in the sky and didn't rain at all, but the temperature was beyond freezing! I cried the first day there with the pain in my hands and feet (I also have Raynaud's disease), it was -6 degrees the first day there. There temperature gradually made its way up to 2 degrees while we were there and we got used to it but the mornings were agonizing on some days. I'm guessing the weather will be the same? I'm praying for no rain but not getting my hopes up. So any advice on the weather and ways to keep warm will be very helpful. Also, if you've been before, what did you wear to keep warm without looking too silly (no ski-suits!).
