And with the availability of cheap flights to Orlando why not experience the Disney magic for yourself.

Regarded as one of the most colorful and exciting places to celebrate New Year’s, Parisians toast the nouvelle année with flutes of Champagne and papillottes - small chocolates which pop like firecrackers when opened.
