One thing we often hear from our customers in Paris is that they would love to spend a day at Disneyland, but worry about the time and cost of getting there. While at first glance, the Parisian transport network may seem overwhelming, it really is super-simple. Keep this essential travel info in tow for a stress-free journey to and from the most magical place on earth.
Which train do I take from central Paris to Disneyland Paris, and where do I board?
Disneyland® Paris is easily connected to central Paris using the RER A. This suburban railway service runs every 10-30 minutes depending on the time of day and will get you to Disneyland® Paris in just 30-40 minutes.
You can get a direct train from the following Paris Stations:
Charles de Gaulle Etoile: Located at the top of the Champs-Élysées, there are several entrances to this train station which surround the Arc de Triomphe. Anyone staying west of the city centre should use this station.
Auber: Located on Rue Auber, this station is close to the Opera Garnier and the department stores along Boulevard Haussman.
Chatelet Les Halles: One of Paris’ major interchanges is convenient for those staying near the Louvre, Île de la Cité and the Latin Quarter.
Gare de Lyon: This station is a convenient starting point for those with hotels in the south-east of Paris, near the Gare d’Austerlitz or Bercy.
For Disneyland® Paris you need to get off at Marne-la-Vallee – Chessy. The park gates are less than 5 minutes’ walk from the station.
What tickets do I need?
When using the ticket window, simply explain you need a train ticket for Disneyland Paris (Billet pour Disneyland). You will find that most ticket officers will be able to help you in buying the correct ticket.
Alternatively, you can use one of the self-service machines, all of which have the option to be used in English. One of the first questions you are asked is if you want tickets to “Paris” or “Ile de France” – choose Ile de France and from here the process is simple.
Boarding the train
At any of the above listed stations you choose to board from, be sure to look out for the signs for RER A towards Marne-la-Vallee – Chessy or Boissy-Saint-Leger. For Disneyland® Paris you’ll be boarding the train that goes to Marne-la-Vallee – Chessy. Pay attention and check the train’s route carefully before boarding as often trains on the same platform also go to Boissy-Saint-Leger (not your desired destination).
