    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Comfortable shoes and waterproofs!
    Something smart if you want to eat in some of those smart restaurants...the French are very chic.

    Photo Equipment: A telephoto lens is very useful for close up shots of all those interesting features that are just too far away. You will also need a wide angle lens if you want to get a shot of the whole of the Eiffel Tower...or prepare for a long walk!
    Lots of reels of film ....you can never have too many.

    Miscellaneous: A good map of the city showing the Metro stations.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Comfortable walking shoes are a must! Wear something other than oversized NIke's cos they tend to stand out. WHEN IN ROME DO AS THE ROMANS DO! But then again who am i to tell you what to wear! haha!

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Get travel insurance.

    Photo Equipment: BUy photo film from wherever you are coming from. Be sure to use lead bag to protect your film(due to strong xray scans). If it's going to be real sunny use KODAK ROYAL GOLD 100. If it's cloudy then use FUJI SUPERIA 400. Dont go for fancy zoom cameras. Stay with 28-70mm zoom. I would suggest minolta 28-70 freedom explorer zoom. Or olympus stylus epic 35-70. My camera is a yashica t4-fixed 35 mm. Dont carry around big SLR cameras unless you are in paris exclusively for photography. It's painful to carry it around.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Bring good walking shoes. Paris is nice enough and everything is close enough to walk just about anywhere. Unlike London or Rome, walking Paris is much nicer than taking the underground or bus. Bring a long sleeved shirt and a raincoat or pullover. It tends to be chilly and sometimes damp.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: You've really got to take comfortable walking shoes with you to Paris. The first time I visited Paris was on business and all I had were high-heeled shoes. Since it was December my feet were freezing cold and sore from the 'sight-seeing' I tried to get done during my hours out of meetings.
    However I was well-prepared last summer and each step I made reminded me of how sad I was the last time due to uncomfortable shoes !

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: November in Disneyland is cold!. Take coat, scarves and gloves. Found it best to wear several layer of cloths so that you could take some off when you visited the cafe. Comfortable shoes are a must. In Disneyland, if you are not on a ride, you are eaither walking or standing in line waiting to go on a ride. Paris is huge as well. The Metro is good for getting from one site to another but there is usually a bit of a walk to get to the attractions.

    Luggage and bags: During winter you have heating in your room so you need only light sleeping clothes. Using the radiator as a dryer you can wash your boxers/panties and socks at night and your sleeping wear in the morning and end up with a theoretical minimum of one piece of each. Better double it for safety.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Have a pair of confy and waterproof shoes rather than sneakers because it rains a lot.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: good pair of walking shoes as you will do a lot - and me? I decided to wear knee length boots so as not to be upstaged by chic Parisian ladies, only to regret it later when my feet were really sore at the end of each day.
