Since my trips for this year have kind of tanked, I am planning for 2021! We plan to spend a week in Paris, including some time at Disneyland Paris (for dh and dd). We are going in mid/late April 2021. I'd appreciate any input you'd like to share. A few things about us, which may explain some choices:
*Dh and DD are huge DIsney fans. DD has a goal to visit all the Disney parks and has been to Shanghai, so this will be her 4th. Dh is a big DIsney fan. So please don't suggest we eliminate it, because we aren't.
*I'm a big military history buff. I'm very impacted by vising sites I've read about. So I went to Corfu and the island of Jersey because I was a HUGE Gerald Durrell fan in my 20's.
*I loved the book The Seventh Unicorn by Kelly Jones so visiting the Cluny is a big priority for me.
*Dh and I try to wine taste wherever we travel.
*I hate heights. I've tried it.....I've been in the Gateway Arch multiple times, the Space Needle in Seattle and the Tower of America in San Antonio, plus many other similar places. I don't even like being in hotel rooms that are high with the drapes open.
So, here it is (these aren't necessarily in order, just possible plans)
Day 1: arrive mid day, hopefully from a red eye from the West Coast. Take a Seine River cruise in the evening.
Day 2: Cluny Notre Dame, Sainte Chapelle, Saint Sulpice, Jardin de Luxembourg
Day 3: Louvre, L'Orangerie, walk the Champs D'Elysee
Day 4: day trip to Reims: the cathedral, the Surrender Museum and champagne tasting
Day 5: Holocaust Museum, Picasso Museum, Marais neighborhood wandering around
Day 6: this is a partial day, and I am open for suggestions. I'd like to see the Army Museum. This could be a good day for dd and dh to see the Eiffel Tower, if they want to go up in it and I could do the Army Museum, or something else.
I am thinking we should stay in the 6th or 7th Arrondissement, near the Seine. Does anyone have good suggestions for a hotel? Since there are three of us, I'm not sure what to do. I'm flexible with the cost, since we only have a week or so. What's most important to me is a convenient location. I'd like to stay at about 300 euros for the three of us. However, my budget is more flexible than normal, as my vacation budget isn't being spent like I expected this year.
Am I missing something I will hugely regret? As long as dh gets to go to Disneyland Paris I can plan whatever I want. Dd is also flexible, I think, as long as we do a lot! (She's an active traveler!)
