It's real-life fairy dust.

For Disney fans, there may be no happier place on Earth than Disneyland. Except, perhaps, a Disneyland covered in snow.

(And we’re not talking about the fake stuff you might see during the holidays at Disney World in Orlando.)

It’s snowing at Disneyland Paris right now, and the park’s most iconic attractions have been dusted with a layer of beautiful, glittering white.

At Sleeping Beauty Castle, for example, the pink, gold, and blue spires and turrets pop against the freshly fallen snow — as do the dramatic red rock formations at Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.

Photographs taken today also show snow on the banks of the lagoon at the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction, as well as the hedge maze at Alice’s Curious Labyrinth in Fantasyland.

At the feet of a luminescent Tinkerbell statue, the precipitation could be mistaken for fairy dust.

Because Disneyland Paris is located in Marne-la-Vallée, just outside the City of Light, snow is not an entirely rare occurrence during the winter months. But it is uncommon enough that visitors should consider a snowy day at the park a particularly magical and special experience.

Snow is on the forecast for Disneyland Paris tomorrow and Friday, too, with a chance of brief snow showers on Sunday and next Tuesday.
