With our aunt in front of Sleeping Beauty’s Castle.

In 2007, Disneyland Paris celebrated its 15th anniversary, having opened on April 12, 1992.

We visited it with our aunt for the first time in June 2007.  The weather was lovely and the castle gorgeous.  [We got to go back for a second visit in July 2009: Second Visit to Disneyland Paris.]

Sleeping Beauty’s Castle

The park is represented by Le Château de la Belle au Bois Dormant, a replica of the fairy tale castle seen in ‘Sleeping Beauty’.  Many people consider it the best castle of all the Disney parks.

Le Chateau de la Belle au Bois Dormant features stained glass windows with images from the movie, a balcony accessible to visitors and, best of all, an animatronic dragon underneath the castle!!!

Two Girls and a Mouse Tale

   by Elly Collins & Caroline Collins

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???

We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.

We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney. Available now at Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.
