Have you searched the www.accorhotels.com site to check various availabilities? Frankly, I would not worry too much about Gare du Nord on the morning of the 18th, because there will be dozens if not hundreds of people wanting a taxi to CDG from there in the early hours if there is no train, and they will be more than willing to share a taxi.

www.taxiG7.com will allow you to book a taxi ahead of time if you want. Of course, it will cost more. (Naturally there are a number of other taxi companies that will do the same thing, but G7 is the one I use when necessary.)

raileurope, owned largely by sncf, issued a bulletin the other day that said:

Artesia Night - night of Oct 17/18 and night of 18/19 trains 221/220 Par-Milano-Venezia/Florence, Rome will not operate

Artesia Day: Oct 18 TGVs 9241,9247/9249 will be combined into one 9249 train

same for reverse: 9240 and 9242 will become one with 9248

Nope. The Paris suburban network is still 'perturbed'.
