Def worth a day trip

Barring special circumstances (strike continuing an extra day?), it is def worthwhile to venture into the city. I've done similar day excursions in Paris twice, and both times I had a great day just walking and enjoying the city. Both times I used RER to get into Paris. Also, both times, I had my luggage short checked to Paris. I collected my bags and left them with the baggage service in 2A (I believe it was 2A). Then whatever I bought could be placed in my bags before checking in for my connecting flight. The side benefit of this is that you know where your bags are. CDG is a big black hole for bags, and extra long layovers bring additional risk. For me, it was worth it to short check my bags. YMMV.
