Mickey and Minnie launch Champs Elysées Christmas marketUpdate: New ice sculpture photos and video. Mickey and Minnie Mouse last night took the short trip into the city of Paris, dressed in their finest Winter costumes, to launch the Champs Elysées Christmas markets and illuminate the giant Ferris Wheel!,

It was a surprise outing for the couple, more used to the calm beet fields of Marne-la-Vallée, as they stepped out into the bright lights of the city to inaugurate the Christmas celebrations on the Place de la Concorde, at the heart of Paris.

For the first time in years, they appeared as guests of honour at the foot of the Champs Elysées, as children from the French Red Cross helped them launch the illumination of the giant Ferris Wheel at 17:30 and cut the ribbon for the international Christmas markets to officially open.

They also helped reveal a stunning ice sculpture of Le Château de la Belle au Bois Dormant as part of the Ice Magic exhibit.

Every city has a giant wheel and a Christmas market these days, but how many are just a short RER train ride away for a famous Mouse and his girlfriend?
