When Was The Last Time You Didn’t Go To Disneyland Paris For A Whole Year?

I started thinking about this as we enter 2018, and as it stands right now, I have no trips to Disneyland Paris planned for 2018 and can’t see that changing. That got me thinking as to when was the last time I didn’t go to Disneyland Paris for a whole...
