The World's Greatest Old-Time Funhouse Museum Is In Paris

The World's Greatest Old-Time Funhouse Museum Is In Paris | French Eurotrip 2014 | Scoop.it
We're in search for the perfect museum experience. An interesting collection, a stress-free atmosphere, and a twist to keep the kids excited. Is that too much to ask? We thought so, until Fathom friend Sarah Picchi proved us wrong from the back of a Belle Epoque-era merry-go-round. And where did she buy a ticket to this awesome, vintage fun fair ride? At the museum of course.

Paris to Bilbao by Train? - Bilbao Forum - TripAdvisor

Paris to Bilbao by Train? - Bilbao Forum - TripAdvisor | French Eurotrip 2014 | Scoop.it
We would like to take the train from Paris to Bilbao or San Sebastian. Has anyone done this?

Is it worthwhile and easy enough? Any info is appreciated.
Joshua Ledwell's insight:

Get a train direct Paris-Hendaye (at the border) and then a bus to Bilbao, easier. Bus 1h, train 2.5h and not scenic.


The Paris - Hendaye leg takes 5.5. hours

Joshua Ledwell's insight:

Tons of detail and info in this forum. FWIW people say 2 days is plenty to see DLP. It's much less crowded on weekdays when there is no school holidays (like our visit time). 

 

"Peter Pan usually shares the same meet & greet location as jack sparrow, in Adventureland, where there is a small stage area by the side doors to chalet de la marionette restaurant. If you walk to pirates of the Caribbeanride alongside the lake with hooks ship you will see this stage on your right. Ask times at city hall"

Your Tips for Tackling Paris With Kids

Your Tips for Tackling Paris With Kids | French Eurotrip 2014 | Scoop.it
We asked you to give us advice for visiting the city with children. Here are some highlights.
Joshua Ledwell's insight:

We just visited Paris with our 6-year-old. Absolutely essential to our happiness (and his) was a scooter. Since we like to experience a city by walking it, the scooter enabled our son to keep up with us (usually well ahead of us). Most of the French kids have them, too, which made our son feel like he fit in a bit more.
