When we were planning our trip to Disneyland Paris, I was really excited about the idea of also being able to visit Paris (the city). But I wasn’t sure how feasible it would be. It turns out it’s not too difficult to travel from Disneyland Paris to Paris and back! Here’s how you can do it.
Travel by train from Paris to Disneyland Paris
Disneyland Paris is a popular destination for families, and there are several ways to get there from the city centre. One option is to take the train from Paris to Disneyland Paris or the other way around.
The journey takes about 45 minutes, and trains run every few minutes during peak times. You’ll have plenty of time on the train to relax and enjoy the scenery as you travel through the French countryside. Plus, there’s no need to worry about traffic or finding a parking spot when you arrive at your destination.
Whether travelling with young children or simply looking for a hassle-free way to get to Disneyland Paris, taking the train is a great option.

Take a taxi from Paris to Disneyland Paris
Another way to get from Paris to Disneyland Paris is by taxi. The journey takes around 45 minutes and costs approximately €70-€75. Usually, there is room for 2 to 3 people in the taxi, making it easy to split the fare.
There are a few things to remember when taking a taxi from Paris to Disneyland Paris. First, be sure to have the address of your hotel or the amusement park in hand, so you can give it to the driver. They probably know how to drive to Disneyland Paris, and the surrounding hotels, but it’s good to be prepared.
Second, traffic can be heavy around Paris, so avoid rush hour if possible. Finally, when in Disneyland Paris, ask the concierge to help you book a taxi to Paris. When in Paris, just go to a taxi stand and don’t forget to ask for the fare before getting in.
Traveling from Disneyland Paris to Paris by car
You can go by taxi, or take your own (rental) car. The drive to the city took us about an hour, which was perfect because our kids could take a little nap on the way.
And since we had our rental car, we could easily explore Paris and all its neighbourhoods without worrying about public transportation. We even drove out to the Palace of Versailles for a day trip! If you’re travelling with kids, I would recommend renting a car to have the flexibility to explore at your own pace.
Or if you live near Disneyland Paris, just bring your own car. Driving in France is really easy.
Taking a bus from Disneyland Paris to Paris
Finally, taking the bus from Disneyland Paris to Paris is a great way to see the sights while saving money on transportation. The trip takes about an hour, and the buses are comfortable and clean.
Plus, there’s plenty of room for luggage. The only downside is that the buses can be crowded, so arriving early is essential. When we took the bus, we planned our day around the Disney park schedule to avoid the rush. We also brought snacks and drinks for the journey.
If you want the most hassle-free experience, you can book a trip by bus to Disneyland Paris from your Disney Hotel. The bus will pick you up at your hotel, and will take you on a tour of Paris and even some sights in the surrounding area.
