Whooo! I booked my plane tickets this morning, so it's officially official! Next year most of my siblings and I are going on a Norwegian cruise (September 1st through 9th). Some of them are going early to do London for a few days, but I've already been to London. However, I have yet to visit France, specifically Paris and a certain nearby theme park. So, rather than go a few days early, I'm going to stay a few extra days and do DLP! My current schedule is that the cruise arrives back in London the morning of September 9th. I'll hop onto the Eurostar and take it to Paris. I'll have whatever's left of that day to relax, either at my hotel or the immediate vicinity. I'll have two full days (Monday the 10th and Tuesday the 11th) in Paris - either both days at Disneyland or one day at Disneyland and one day to explore the city of Paris. On Wednesday morning I'll get back on the Eurostar to London to catch my afternoon flight back home. Since it's almost a year away I have plenty of time to plan, but I have a ton of questions for those in the know! Can you actually do both parks of DLP in one day, especially considering it's a weekday? Or would it be better to plan two? Is it feasible to do a day and a half in the parks and then half a day in the city? I don't have a huge bucket list of things to do in the city, but I would like to be able to say I at least did something besides Disney while I was in France as I don't know when I'll be able to get back. Most of my time at the parks would be spent riding attractions and seeing shows. I don't need to do lots of character meet and greets, unless it's a rare character that we don't have back home. I also don't need to spend a lot of time dining - in fact, when I'm on vacation, I tend to eat less often since there's so much other stuff to do! So I'll probably do breakfast and then one meal sometime during the day. Any parks restaurant suggestions with good vegetarian food? I will be bringing my small pin bag for cast member pin trading. But I won't be otherwise focused on pin trading since I'd rather spend most of my time on my first visit enjoying the park itself. (And I don't want to have to worry about hauling all of my pins with me on the plane, the cruise ship, the train, etc.) However, if a DPF member is free to meet up while I'm there, I'd be open to setting up a pre-trade. Is it worth it to stay in the official Disney hotels, or is it better to stay in a nearby non-Disney hotel? I know at WDW it's much better to stay onsite, but at DLR the non-Disney hotels across the street are much cheaper and closer than the actual Disney hotels. I'm not sure how DLP is set up versus the states (distance/transportation from resort hotels to the parks versus nearby non-Disney hotels, cost of each, perks of staying onsite, etc.) I don't plan on using the hotel room or staying on resort grounds for much more than a place to crash at night, shower, and keep my luggage, so I don't need anything fancy. I'm a bit sad that the timing probably won't work out to be able to attend one of the pin trading nights, mostly since it would be a great opportunity to get some LE Paris traders!
