France has skewed school holiday periods for the February/March and April/May vacations: one third of the country goes on vacation for two weeks, another third goes on vacation the second week and the week after that, and the third third goes on vacation the third and fourth week. The purpose is to spread travel and holiday resort occupation around. This ...

I read your question as in 'which part of the Belgium summer holidays' is the best time for Disneyland in Paris. In that case, July and within the week, a Monday or Tuesday or a Thursday or Friday.

I am not sure whether you want to do all in one go, Amsterdam to London within 24 hours or so, or step by step, stopping for a couple of days in each location mentioned. If traveling Amsterdam to London in a short period of time, look into the 'Each Dutch station to London' option on the Eurostar site. I think you get 24 hours before the Eurostar train to ...

Your itinerary sounds reasonable to me. Your interview is already in the past so there isn't a whole lot you can do for this application but in general, when dealing with consular officials or border guards, just be genuine, never lie but don't apologise and try not to be too nervous. Some details might indeed suggest that there are some special concerns ...
