Hi Wozzamills. Now is the time to try experimenting with food. Personally I take something sugary (jelly beans, jelly babies, marzipan) every half hour or so. At my pace, that's about every 5kms, so on race day it coincides with the water stations. If you want to go down the gel route, experiment to see what brands suit you.
I can't remember when the Expo shuts - maybe 8pm? But if you're in Paris on Saturday morning and get there early it's not too bad. I'd try to avoid late morning/early afternoon.
