The Disneyland Resort Paris Christmas Parade is delighting guests with appearances by Santa Claus, Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Chip and Dale, Donald, Daisy (and even nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie, among many others!).

This year’s Christmas tree measures more than 78 feet tall and boasts more than 1,000 glittering decorations. And of course, the tree just marks the start of a slew of festive decor that stretches down Main Street, U.S.A.

Check out the gallery of images above from photographer Tom Bricker that show just how merry the parks are during this time of year. Holiday fun will continue at Disneyland Resort Paris through January 7, 2015.
