Thalys train Paris to Brussels

I've bought an EurailPass, and I know that reservations are compulsory in the leg Paris-Brussels (also an extra fee).
Can anyone help me on to make the reservation?
Most of the sites are for booking tickets, but I don't see how to make the reservation only.
Thanks

You can make reservations at raileurope.com (very expensive) or euraide.com (cheaper, particularly for multiple reservations). If you're going to be in Paris for a few days before going to Brussels, your cheapest option is to wait until you get to Paris and to make your reservation at any major train station.

You can make the reservation while you are in Europe as well, and this is probably your easiest and cheapest route. Last September I was able to book a 2 seats on the Brussels to Paris train, while I was in Bruges, the morning of the trip. However, I wouldn't recommend cutting it that close. I'd say go straight to the ticket window when you get into town and request a reservation. Do it when you validate your eurail pass. You may not get the ideal time, but those trains run so often you should be fine.
