We're going to spend 9 nights at the Marriott Vacation Club that overlooks Golf Disneyland. That gives us 8 full days to take trips into the city of Paris and to visit the parks and environs of Disneyland Paris. Right now, I assume we'll get 3-day Park Hoppers for the Disney parks and 5-day Paris Visite passes for 5 consecutive days of trips to museums, Versailles, the Eiffel Tower, and so on.
Here's the catch... Our arrival is Good Friday (when we'll be exhausted from the red-eye flight across the Atlantic). Saturday is our first full day. Then, Easter Sunday and Easter Monday are public holidays, when many people will be off work. Then the schools are out in France for two weeks. Or so I've read.
I'm worried about crowds at Disneyland Paris and in Paris itself. What would be smarter? 3 Disney days (Saturday through Easter Monday) followed by 5 Paris days? Or 5 Paris days (Saturday through Easter Monday) followed by 3 Disney days? Or possibly putting the 5 Paris days in the middle? (The Paris Visite pass days have to be consecutive.)
Any ideas? Has anyone on this board been there at Easter? (Ian? Anyone else?)
