Strasbourg is too far south for us, but we might look into Reims, as we will probably go right past there.
We don't expect to go into Paris at this time, but hope to come back for a proper Paris visit at a later time; in a couple of years perhaps, when our youngest is a bit older and can appreciate the experience more fully.
I realise that August is a very busy holiday time, but it was the only time my husband could take that corresponded with school holidays. So we will pack plenty of water and sunscreen and make the best of our experience.
If you are staying on site, that is really practical. I strongly suggest going for the FastPass at the very popular stations in each section so that you cut down your queue times, definitely no fun for the kids and for the parents! So go straight for FastPass in each section, unless you happen to be there at opening time, in which case, your first section will go by smoothly. What you do: go to FastPass, get a ticket that tells you what time to come for the attraction. You go do something else, then return and integrate the FastPass queue which is much much shorter than the regular queue.
You will need breaks, and lots of it. The park closes with fireworks at around 11pm in August I think, so it makes for a very long day. Also, you may want to have lunch either around 11am or after 1:30pm so that you don't have to spend hours again queuing up for food! Alternatively, you can reserve a table at any of the restaurants that are themed, which makes your lunch break so much more comfortable.
Reims is wonderful to visit, the Cathedrale is a must. If you happen to have some time, then the Faux de Verzy is worth the slight detour from Reims...a nice walk in a forest that has "petrified" trees. Of course, champagne...
If you are into shopping, there is Val D'Europe, a big outlet mall near Disneyland Paris (1metro stop away).
Najwa: My eldest sings and verbalizes his figures/cars stories in an invented language that has English sounds and Italian accent. Is it his way to disconnect from his multilingual world?

Adam Beck: Najwa, it's hard to respond to your question without knowing the full details of the situation. I suggest starting a thread at a suitable board and offering as much information about these circumstances as you can.

Marisa: Merry Christmas to you, Adam, and to everyone! I also hope 2021 is better than this year we're about to end. It shouldn't be too difficult, right?
