How Do You Get to Disneyland Paris?

| | |

You are taking a trip to Europe but you’re not sure how to get to Disneyland Paris? No worries, let’s take a look at some of the different options to get you there. 

From Charles de Gaulle (CDG) airport 

Train – There is a high-speed (200mph) TGV train that can take you from Charles de Gaulle (CDG) airport to Disneyland Paris in a matter of minutes. With an average wait of 30 minutes, the total journey time will be only 45 minutes. A one-way ticket for the super-fast, direct TGV train is 17.50€, and children under the age of 3 travel for free. The TGV train leaves from a special platform located one level below the ticket station at Terminal 2. 

Taxi – Another quick option is taking a Charles de Gaulle airport taxi. The journey will only take 40 minutes, and the taxis will be charged using a taximeter according to distance. The total price for the journey will be around 76€ in the day, and 90€ at night. 

Magical Shuttle – The last transfer option is taking the Magical Shuttle bus. The Magical shuttle bus costs 23€ one-way for adults, 10€ for kids ages 2-12, and is free for children under the age of 2. The Magical Shuttle will take approximately 90 minutes to reach Disneyland. Regular departures from Paris Charles de Gaulle and Orly airports run approximately every 60 minutes to the onsite Disney Hotels (except Disney’s Davy Crockett Ranch). To get to Villages Nature Paris, a bus transfer is required at Marne-La-Vallée/Chessy station where a public shuttle is available from the station to Villages Nature Paris for a fee. Bookings for the Magical Shuttle can be made up to two days before the departure date. 

From Paris city center

Disneyland Paris Express –  The Disneyland Paris Express offers a package with park tickets and shuttle transfers from Paris and entrance to the Disney Parks. There are 2 shuttles that make stops at 4 convenient locations in the heart of the city: 

  • Gare du Nord
  • Opéra
  • Châtelet
  • Eiffel Tower

Train – Simply take the RER A train to the Marne-la-Vallée/Chessy station. The Marne-la-Vallée/Chessy train station is steps from Disney Village and about a 2-minute walk from the entrances to the two theme parks. The train takes about 30 minutes to get there from Paris city center. Once at Marne-la-Vallée – Chessy, follow the signs for “Parcs Disneyland.” The fare is 7.60€ from central Paris to Disneyland Paris. 

From London 

Direct train – You can take the Eurostar directly to Disneyland Paris! Hop on board at St Pancras International, Ebbsfleet International or Ashford International and arrive at the Marne-la-Vallée/Chessy train station, just 2 minutes walk from the Disney Parks. Direct trains leave for Disneyland Paris once a day on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays. It does not run between early Jan and mid-Feb, however, during school holidays direct trains run either every day of the week or an additional service operates on Saturdays. This train ride is about 2 hours 45 minutes. 

Indirect train – If the direct train isn’t running the day you’re heading to Disneyland Paris, you can take any Eurostar train to Lille and change for a TGV train which takes you directly to the Marne-la-Vallée/Chessy station at Disneyland Paris. This option takes about 3 hours, depending on your connection.
