How to get to Disneyland Paris?

We always love planning our trip to Disneyland Paris. What rides to go on, where to eat, and what shows we don’t want to miss. But one of the most important things to plan is how to get there! Most of the time, we prefer to travel by car, but that’s just one way to get to the parks.

Here are some ways you can travel to Disneyland Paris!

Travelling to Disneyland Paris by car

Disneyland Paris is on the A4 highway

For many families, travelling by car is the most convenient option. It allows for a flexible schedule and the ability to make stops along the way if desired. Plus, it’s usually the cheapest travel option when gas prices are considered.

Driving in France is pretty straightforward, and the roads are good. Along the way, you might encounter some toll roads. These are common in France and are often not too expensive. You can pay with a credit card or cash at the booths.

Most hotels and camping grounds near Disneyland Paris offer free parking and even some chargers for electric vehicles.

From the Paris’ airports

Flying is a convenient way to travel to Disneyland Paris

If you have some distance to travel or are coming from outside Europe, flying is likely your best option. Fortunately, there are two airports close to Disneyland Paris that service many international and domestic flights.

Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) is about 30 minutes from Disneyland Paris and handles the majority of international flights. Orly Airport (ORY) is located about 45 minutes from Disneyland Paris and services primarily domestic and European flights.

You can take public transport or a taxi from either airport to Disneyland Paris. Buses run frequently and are relatively cheap, but they make several stops along the way so that the journey can take a while. Trains are faster and run very frequent. Taking a taxi is the most expensive option, but also the most direct route to Disneyland Paris.

If Disneyland Paris is your only destination, getting a rental car is not necessary. Once at your hotel, you won’t need a car to get you to the parks, except when you stay at Villages Nature Paris or Disney’s Davy Crockett Ranch.

Taking the train

Another great way to travel to Disneyland Paris is by taking the train. The resort has its train station, literally underneath the parks.

The station is called Marne-la-Vallée/Chessy, and it is serviced by many trains from major cities in Europe. If you’re coming from London, Brussels, or Amsterdam, there are direct trains that will take you right to the station. For other cities, you might have to make a connection in Paris or one of the cities above.

Depending on where you’re coming from, taking the train can be very scenic and quite an experience, especially for children. They will love the train’s speed and how quickly the landscape changes.

The journey by train is very comfortable, and you can walk around the cabin, use the restroom, and get food and drinks from the dining car.

Getting there from the city of Paris

RER-A train between Paris and Disneyland Paris

Taking the train is the easiest way to travel to Disneyland Paris for those already in Paris. It’s fast, convenient, and relatively cheap.

The RER A train line goes directly from central Paris to the Disneyland Paris resort. The journey takes about 45 minutes. Trains run every 10-15 minutes, so you won’t have to wait long.

Tickets can be bought at the station or in advance online. If you use the train multiple times during your stay, it might be worth buying a Paris Visite pass. This allows unlimited travel on the RER, Metro, and bus lines.

No matter your transportation option, getting to Disneyland Paris is easy and convenient. With a bit of planning, your journey can be stress-free and enjoyable for the whole family.
