    Hello! My husband and I will only be in Paris for about 36 hours. He has never been, and I have been once. I am feeling very torn because:
    1) we will be there for our 2nd anniversary
    2) we are Disney people through and through. We were engaged in Disney World, spent our honeymoon at Disney World, and spent our first anniversary at Disneyland
    3) but, he's never seen any of Paris - and we've seen tons of Disney

    So I'm not sure if it would be a good idea to spend a day there, with only a half day to really see "the sights," or if we should just skip it all together and enjoy the city.

    Help!

    No. Enjoy the city, and return to DLP/Paris when you have more time to see it.

    Agree with @Animaniac93-98. You don't want to rush Paris or Disney. You should visit DLP, but not this time. Paris is a magical city. Enjoy!

    Do Paris and skip Disney. Eiffel Tower, Seine boat ride, Musee du Orsay for Impressionists art. Go early early morning for Notre Dame. Stay out late and walk the city. Cool discoveries everywhere.

    I'm in love with both the city and DLP. :inlove:

    If you want to visit DLP, just go for the day. No shame in having a hobby. We all have one. And if Disney just happens to be yours you don't need to feel guilty or culturally incorrect for skipping the museums, the city, the sights.

    36 hours isn't enough for either anyway.

    Thank you all so much for your responses!! We're going to see the city and book a separate trip for DLP next year!

    I agree too. Now you have another trip to look forward to and you can concentrate on one and then the other. Paris sounds better for a quick getaway, not that Disney can't be but still ... you won't feel pulled trying to split your time or feel like you missed out on one or the other.
