How to Get to Disneyland Paris
If you don’t want to rent a car, there are three options to get to Disneyland Paris:
- Excursion to Disneyland Paris: The ideal option to avoid complications, the excursion to Disneyland from Paris includes return transportation to the parks from Paris as well as entrance fees.
- RER: This express train takes you to Marne-la-Vallée-Chessy and connects Paris with Disneyland Paris on line RER A (Red). The park is in zone 5. A fare from zone 1 to zone 5 is 7,60€ and it takes between 35 and 40 minutes.
- Magical Shuttle Bus: To go directly to Disneyland from Charles de Gaulle or Orly, you can take a Magical Shuttle bus every 30-40 minutes (from 8:30 am to 7:45 pm) and it takes 45 minutes approximately to get to the resort. It costs € 20 (US$ 21.30) for adults and € 16 (US$ 17.10) for children (ages 3 – 11). Children less than 3 travel for free. You can book the tickets on the official website.
- Taxi or transfer services: This is the most expensive option, but it's also the most comfortable and hassle-free. If you book a shuttle service, a driver will be waiting for you at the airport or at your hotel.
For families who want to visit the parks for several days, it's best to consider staying at one of the seven Disneyland Paris hotels (some are closer than others to the parks). There are also hotels of other companies within walking distance of the park.
Visit one or both theme parks?
There are tickets valid for one or for both parks. If this is your first visit and you only want to visit one park, it should be Disneyland.
If it's a day with little traffic, you do not have children and you want to take advantage of the time, it is possible to visit both parks in one day and visit almost all the attractions. In this case, you should plan carefully.
