Spring in Paris
Spring in Paris

While I always dreamt of experiencing this mesmerizing city, I was quite baffled as to when to visit Paris. To understand the best time to visit Paris, I have been visiting Paris to past four year and indulging in all its four season and accommodating various temperaments and each time the city has something new to offer.

My family particularly enjoys being there during summers, as my kids school is on break, celebrations captivates the entire city and climate is pleasant, so quite welcoming. I remember last year when I was in Paris during winters; albeit cold I picked up one the attractions; ice skating at the most famous Hotel de Ville and shopped to glory for my favorite stuff at the busiest, Christmas market.  Many of my friends prefer visiting during spring and fall not only enjoy the enchanting rains and cool climate but extend their stay as; prices fall and the city is less crowded.

Fall in Paris
Fall in Paris

High and low season can affect budget

  • June to October are considered high or peak seasons. Visitors can experience rise in ; rooms prices , transportation etc .
  • January to March are known to be the low seasons. City is less crowded and the prices too fall tremendously.
  • Shoulder seasons includes the months; April to May and November to December.

Ask me it’s a fact that due to various business fairs, conferences and conventions the months September, October and January witness a rise in the visits. So best time to visit Paris also depends upon your assigned travel budget as well.

Trips based on weather conditions   

If you yearn to be in Paris, like my wife then be a beholder of typically warn and sunny climate marked by an average rise up to 75 degree. Winters bestow light rains and snowfall and a temperature embracing a high of 44 degrees. My friends have always wondered how overcast and misty Paris can be in spring and fall with an average temperature of around 60 degrees. Irrespective of when you are visiting the city my personal advice to you would be pack an umbrella to be ready for the possibility of rains. Weather conditions are also one of the preferences that determine when to visit Paris.

Save while on tour

While visiting Paris during winters and springs I have seen the prices of the rooms, transportation, food and more going down; as tourism tends to slow down while the climate is cooler. This slow down price persuades many to gift a package deal along with a reduced fare on flights to their near and dear ones. My friends who love to extend their stay in the city prefer early spring and late fall; as it’s a bang for their buck.

To conclude not to lose out and be a part of its great grandeur.

Fireworks show at Disneyland in Paris that features projections on sleeping beauty castle and Matterhorn along with music, dialogue and more than 10000 spotlights to form a spectacular event can make the day for anyone who see it.

Five Magical Lands:
The five magical lands include Main Street, U.S.A., Fantasyland, Frontierland, Adventureland and Discoveryland. It’s tough to skip any of these as it’s a dream come true to visit magical land that you have always seen in fairytale dreaming of going there one day. The park is busy very often throughout the day and the hotels I thought was pretty expensive.

Thrills in all shape and sizes:
It’s one and only place for kids and parents to enjoy together and at equal energy zones. While parents enjoy their thrilling ride, kids enjoy their being in Disneyland at “it’s a small world”.

Meet your favorite Disney characters:
Hey dadda ! It’s Mickey Mouse there!
Grab this opportunity to meet your favorite Disney characters and keep clicking snaps as when you go back home and show you friends where you have been to; they will be jealous from top to toe.

I went berserk taking pictures with Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and goofy. It was a dream come true to see them in real. Wow !

Family parades:

Enjoy spectacular Family parades and many other attractions you would see while having a look at your dreamland.

Major thing that you shall remember from Disneyland in Paris are breakfast with Disney characters, shopping, dining at some of great hotels, witnessing some of supreme and breathtaking shows, parades, drama leaves you captivated. It’s a disappointing trip if you go and see some of the places and rides being shut for maintenance. Rides in here are much elaborate which add zest to the picnic. I have had very fond memories of Disneyland with popping Disney characters and lovely food.

One wouldn’t like to go back home and would wish to stay here forever. Make sure you book your tickets in advance and confirm if any part of the Disneyland is under maintenance
