I posted my initial itinerary a couple weeks ago and really appreciate all of the advice and suggestions. Have made a little more progress and wanted to see if I’m on the right path to a great trip!

Details: Wife and I traveling from Texas with 3 year old and babysitter staying near Palais Royale.

Day 1: Get into town, shop at Monoprix on Opera for staples. Fromagerie Hisada for some cheese. Family Dinner in or maybe at Bistrot Victoires.

Day 2: Bus Tour (probably Hop On, Hop Off) to get acquainted with city. Stopping at Arc de Triomphe and Opera Garnier then to Galeries Lafayette Le Gourmet followed by coffee at Cafe Cullier or drinks on the Printemps Terrace. Dinner in for daughter & I, wife and babysitter - lady’s night out. Considering Crazy Horse or Moulin Rouge. Any other suggestions appreciated.

Day 3:
Picnic shopping on Rue Cler or at Market on avenue du Président Wilson following by picnic and visit to Eiffel Tower followed by Trocadero Carousel. Perhaps hot chocolate at Angelina followed by afternoon at Tulleries Garden.
Dinner for wife & I at L’ Arcane.

Day 4: Disney Paris

Day 5: Day at the Louvre and likely back to Tulleries Garden. Maybe lunch at Le Souffle. Any other suggestions close by the Louvre? Evening concert for wife & I at Saint Chappelle followed by dinner somewhere in Latin Quarter, perhaps Avant Comptoir for at least drinks and snacks. Maybe jazz at Caveau de la Huchette.

Day 6: Pastries at Maison Mulot, perhaps a picnic at Luxembourg Gardens followed by a visit to Notre Dame. Dinner for wife & I at Aspic.

Day 7: Bastille Market, walk around Montmarte, Place du Tertre and Sacré Coeur. Drinks at Paname Brewing Company, maybe an afternoon boat ride on the Siene. Family dinner close to Palais Royale, suggestions for a bistro or brasserie much appreciated.

Thanks so much for any advice or suggestions in advance.
