    My 16 year old DS has convinced me to go to Paris for spring break.

    He has done a lot research and we have most everything taken care of...flights, hotel (staying at Hipark by Adagio Serris-Val d'Europe and one night at the Sequoia). Still looking at what type of tickets we want to get.

    Any advise for which days would be best to visit Paris, days to avoid, tips for sight seeing, etc?

    First question: Spring Break is different all over the world :) When is yours?

    For the tickets, get yourself parkhoppers. The parks are within a 5 minute walking distance of each other.



    From the still to be post 'All things Disneyland Paris for first time vistors'-thread:

    Best/Worst times to travel:

    - Like any theme park the golden rule applies: Avoid public holidays and vacation periods.

    - The French holidays and vacations are the most important. But you have to keep an eye on other countries as well. The other large groups are the Brits and the Spanish. It might not mean an immense increase when the Brits have a public holiday, however it might be a bit busier than normal.

    French national holidays: https://publicholidays.fr/2019-dates/
    French school holidays: https://publicholidays.fr/school-holidays/
    For Spring & Winter breaks, keep an eye on Zone C as this is the Paris region.

    UK national holidays: https://publicholidays.co.uk/2019-dates/

    - Like Disneyland in California, Disneyland Paris knows a lot of local visitors. Going to DLP for a day is very easily done for locals. Therefore the next tip: If possible, go during the week.

    Like other Disney parks, Disneyland Paris uses different kinds of festivals and seasons to keep locals interested and to fill up low seasons. First & last days of festivals and seasons are usually busier.
    See the Events calendar here: https://www.disneylandparis.com/en-gb/events/

    There can be changes to this calendar per year. The Magic Pride festival will be new in 2019. The St. David’s Welsh Festival second weekend of March is not on the list (yet). The Welsh Festival is one of those weekends where you do not expect huge crowds, but it can get very busy.

    No holidays or vacation periode, so crowds should be good on the 19th. There is plenty in Paris to do. Have you ever been there before? And what do you like to do? Are you a foodie, do you love art, history, palaces? Has your son any particular hobbies or interests?

    Otherwise you can just stay on the highlight list, see the Eiffel Tower, the Notre dame, Arc de Triomphe, Louvre etc.
