St. Patrick's Day was celebrated at Disneyland Paris with a special Mickey and Minnie parade, Irish dancers, plenty of blue skies and sun. Catherine was still not feeling well but she perked up when she saw Dumbo the Flying Elephant Ride. Up, up, and away and she laughed and squealed with glee. The infectious tune of It's a Small World made Catherine sing and clap along. We spent most of our time in Fantasyland but my one request was to see the dragon in his lair under Sleeping Beauty's Castle. The roaring menacing dragon in his dark swampy lair reared up and spewed smoke in what was a wonderful display of Disney animatronics. But it was Alice's Curious Labyrinth that frightened me. I actually felt like I would never make it out, but then finally we saw the Queen of Hearts pop up and we climbed up into the tree for a wonderful view of this beautiful park. After lining up and watching the parade of princes and princesses, Catherine succumbed to her gastrointestinal illness and we boarded the RER A for our short train ride home.
