How to Get from Charles De Gaulle to Disneyland Paris

Most people who are traveling to Disneyland Paris and are flying in choose to fly into Charles De Gaulle and in my opinion is a great choice for EuroDisney visitors. 

This airport:

  • has the most flights being Paris’ number 1 airport meaning you will have a lot of options for timings and cost, 
  • is the closest airport to the park and 
  • has the most options to transfer to the parks from the airport including options to get there via public transport, shuttles and taxis of course. 

Transfer wise it can take as little as ten minutes to transfer from CDG to the parks on the TGV and can be as cheap as 17 Euros per person if you take the RER and with a transfer time of only around 1 hour.

However, there are some downsides to flying into CDG

  • it can be slightly more expensive to fly into than Orly or Beauvais, although in my opinion, the more cost-effective transfers make up for it. 
  • the airport can be VERY busy to get through security, especially at peak times such as around Christmas, Easter and the summer holidays. Therefore you may need to leave extra time to get through security to make your flight in time.

The second closest airport to Disneyland Paris is Orly and can be a great choice because

  • flights can be cheaper, and 
  • the airport tends to be much quieter than CDG so your time to get through security can be a less time-consuming and less stressful experience. 

However, there are some downsides to flying into Orly: 

  • the transfers are more expensive and take longer than those from CDG, 
  • and there are fewer flights to Orly than CDG so you have less choice when it comes to the timing of flights. 

Note about transfers: depending on how well your train connections work out this option can take up to 2 hours to make the transfer and usually costs around 16 Euros per person from Orly.

Beauvais to Disneyland Paris

Beauvais can be a really tempting choice to fly into for those visiting Disneyland Paris on a budget as the flights tend to be much, much cheaper than those going into Orly and CDG however I would strongly urge against flying into Beauvais unless you have oodles of time. 

Although the flights are cheaper into Beauvais the transfers will either be much more time-consuming or much more expensive. 

For instance if you want to transfer by public transport you first need to take the shuttle transfer from the airport to Porte Maillot. From there you can take a short walk or take the metro from Porte Maillot to Charles de Gaulle Etoile and disembark at Marne La Vallee for the parks. The stop you want is usually marked with Mickey Mouse ears next to the name. 

The costs of this option are: 

  • 30 Euros per adult for the shuttle (return) , and 20 Euros for kids and
  • the costs for RER are around 5 Euros per adult. 

The other downside of this option is that it can take around 3 hours to get to the parks from the airport while if you decide to get private transfers it can cost 150 to 200 Euros each way. 

There is also no Magic Shuttle option at Beauvais like there is at CDG and Orly.

Overall if you are looking for which airport to fly into for DLP I would strongly urge you not to fly into Beauvais. Although the flights can be substantially cheaper the transfers take a lot more time and are significantly more expensive. Therefore we recommend just looking at CDG or Orly. 

Personally I am happy to fly into either of these two airports. If budget is a strong consideration then I would choose the cheaper flights, but just be sure to take into account the transfer costs too. 

Bu if you are worried about chaotic airports and haven’t flown before with toddlers you may want to consider flying into Orly as this airport is usually (though not always) a quieter experience.
