flying times

at the moment I am looking at flight times and there are two options. None of the are perfect, but need concidering.

This will be a conecting flight (I want to CDG). So first option is flying early - 6am and arriving 13 at CDG. Second option is departing 14.55 and arriving 21.55.
We won't be staying in DLP hotel that night, but we could walk around disney village, and have a lazy day after flight. But do I need that? Early departure, get up early, 2 hours before flight... Not too good.

Arriving late.. baggage claim... and off to bed for early start?

So, what would you choose?

I would do the early flight - depending on how far a drive your home is from the airport? But then I prefer the early starts, because otherwise if we have afternoon flights I'm sat twiddling my thumbs for hours just waiting to get going!

hmm so really you're all going to have to be up out of bed at around 2.30am? No, thats too early for me, so it would be the afternoon flight.

okay so if she lives next to the airport, then I'm back to the early flight again!

I'd say definitely the early flight, but then I always like to get off as early as possible rather than sit around waiting. You might have an early start but you'll have the afternoon to relax and then you can have an early night ready for the next day. If the later flight arrives at 21.55 it could be midnight before you get to bed if you factor in baggage collection, transport etc.

I agree with this. The early flight is better as if ever you had delays arriving at CDG it could be very very late getting to the hotel and you would start the next day tired. If you get the early flight you could always go to DV etc and be in the magic

All the more reason for getting the early flight as if you don't get to your hotel until after midnight you are all going to be really tired at 8.00 am

I still have time to sort things out. Doubt the timetable will change. Unless a deal comes up. Do Lufthansa ever have deals?
