We too joined the crowd and started moving towards the Le Château de la BELLE au Bois Dormant - "Sleeping Beauty's Castle" which was visible from everywhere one was. While moving towards the venue, I could spot a commercial airliner leaving behind a trail of fumes just overhead the castle - and I froze the moment as can be seen in photos above and below.

And then slowly and gradually light started to illuminate the Sleeping Beauty's castle and brought it to light from its sleeping silhouette.
The music was incredible - the many stories of all Disney characters following and the awesome firework illuminating the sky again and again. We were all spell bound!!
These sudden bursts of fire (as seen above) generated so much of heat that one could feel it even while standing almost 500 metres away from the castle. But in the cold evening, these provided much needed warmth and comfort.
Then by and by, the lights faded away and the fireworks stopped. The almost hour long show came to end end amidst claps and happy shouts of the the onlookers specially the children. The castle once again shrouded into darkness and we left the venue with life time memories of this incredible show - or should I say the greatest show on the earth (remember the movie?)

Everyone started to leave and so did we - but not before getting us photographed as the last souvenirs and reminders of our visit to Paris Disneyland.
Just before laving, my sons had the last photos with the huge Mickey Mouse statue as can be seen in the following photos:
