I'm hoping to one day take my godchild, along with his parents and my own parents, to Disneyland in Paris for a few days. However, I personally can't cope that well with busy places, and I'm hoping to go during a calm period. However, my godchild shouldn't miss his school for this, so I want to go during a school holiday period in Belgium. However, France also has school holidays, and a lot of them are the same as Belgium's.
Sometimes, when I visit certain Dutch cities, I do this on 11/11 (Armistice day for WW1, Netherlands was neutral then), because this is usually a normal workday in the Netherlands, but Belgium gets the day off. Is there a similar situation for france, where we get a day off, but the French don't? Obviously not 11/11 since France was also affected by WW1. I've considered 21st of July (which is National Day in Belgium), but:
- it would have to be a Monday or Friday for it to work properly;
- It's right in the middle of the Long Summer Break in France;
- I'd rather not have to go via Brussels on National Day since everyone is watching the parade;
- I like to see the King's Speech on National day.
