Taking the kids to Paris or Tokyo is the perfect way to make sure they catch the travel bug. But if they’re more obsessed with Beauty and the Beast than baguettes, you’ll want to compromise — Disney for them and city-wandering for you. Disney Paris and Disney Tokyo Sea not only boast the usual Disney roster, but have side attractions that domestic parks might not. In Paris, book tickets for Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show. In Tokyo, skip the regular park and head to Tokyo Sea for a new cast of characters and lineup of shows.
Then, spend a few days exploring the culinary landscape of your chosen city. We hear Tokyo’s Restaurant-I and Passages 53 in Paris are two hotspots to try right now.
