So we've finally booked our first Europapark trip since October 2016 - that's the longest streak without having been to the park ever, but our US trip in 2017 and our boy being born in 2018 didn't get us the opportunity to go there in the meantime.
We're going the week after Easter, during the week with planning to be in the park Wednesday and Thursday with the option of Friday. We're sleeping off-property due to cost reasons (we're a bigger group and some cannot afford three night on property). Do the locals know how the crowds are there during that time? Normally we avoid the local holidays, but it's not manageable this time because we are a bigger group.
As it's my son's first visit to a major theme park, we're suprised (in a good way) how the park managed our requests. We got a specific list in advance what attractions he will be allowed to do then (without having asked, we just asked if we can bring a handcart and if we can heat up his selfmade food while being in restaurants and they assumed what would be additionally important to know for us).
So we're really excited how the two days will turn out for us a bigger group with a one year old. And we're excited for the dinner in the "Ochsen" which is our favourite restaurant in Rust!
As we know the park very well from being alone, just for ourselves, there - does anybody has some experience with going to Europapark with a one year old? In Tripsdrill, he rode everything he was allowed on and enjoyed it with loud giggles.
