How to get from Disneyland Paris to Eiffel Tower
One of the things that you need to know when planning a trip to Disneyland Paris (previously, and sometimes still affectionately referred to as Eurostar) is that Disneyland Paris is not in fact in Paris.
Disneyland Paris is actually located in the area known as Marne-la-Valle. Marne-la-Valle is actually just over 30kms east of Paris.
Whereas the Eiffel Tower is smack back in the heart of Paris. As such if you want to do a day trip to the Eiffel Tower from Disneyland Paris it is going to take a bit of forethought depending on how much time you have and how much you are willing to spend to get to the Eiffel Tower from Disneyland Paris.
For instance the best option for you will be largely dependent on whether you are traveling to Disneyland Paris on a budget in which case you may want to prioritise the cheapest option but if you are traveling to Disneyland Paris with toddlers speed may be more important.
Or maybe you want all the hassle taken out of the trip for you with an organised excursion.
Now, the options you have for getting to Disneyland Paris from Paris are:
- Private Transfer
- Hire a Car

How do I get to the Eiffel Tower from Disneyland Paris by train?
One of my favorite ways to get to the Eiffel Tower from Disneyland Paris is by train, the RER specifically. And as such we receive the questions “How do I get to the Eiffel Tower from Disneyland Paris by train?” pretty frequently on the blog. Therefore we will now give you step by step instructions to help you navigate the RER swell as an estimate on costs, time and transfers.
Now while the RER is usually easy to navigate the only difficulty with getting to the Eiffel Tower from Disneyland Paris is that there are a couple of changes that you need to do to get to your destination. However with these steps you should find the journey problem free.
The RER Station for Disneyland Paris isn’t called Disneyland Paris but Marne-la-Vallee which is sometimes written as Marne-V/Chessy.
When you enter the Marne-la-Vallee station you will see a row of ticket booths. The default language for all of these machines is French but you can very easily change the language to English (or German, Italian or Spanish).
The destination you are looking for on the ticket machine to get to the Eiffel Tower is Champ de Mars/Tour Eiffel. You just need to type this into the machine and select the amount of tickets you require.
It is easy to adjust number of tickets you need or any concessions you also require. The machines accept cards (Visa, Mastercard and Maestro) as well as Apple Pay and coins too NOT notes.
Alternatively you can go to the ticket office to get your tickets however the queues here tend to be very long which is why I would personally prefer to head to the ticket machines instead.
The great thing about Marne-la-Vallee station is that it is a terminus so you don’t have to worry about different trains too much.
At Marne-la-Vallee station you board the red line RER A train. You need to take the train all the way to Châtelet-Les-Halle which usually takes around 40 minutes.
Once at Châtelet-Les-Halle you need to transfer RER B. This is indicated by a blue line on the map. Once you have located the RER B Line you are looking for trains heading towards St-Rémy-les-Chevreuse (South).
Don’t worry if it is a crowded train however as you are only going one stop on this line. The next stop is St-Michel-Notre Dame and is where you need to disembark.
Then you need to do your final change. At St-Michel-Notre Dame you need to transfer onto RER C which is the yellow line on the map. Due to the branch lines of yellow line you need to jump on one trains with one of the two following destinations on the front:
- Saint Quentin-en-Yvelines
You destination of Champ de Mars/Tour Eiffel is only 4 stops away.
Once you arrive at the Champ de Mars/Tour Eiffel station you will have a short walk from the station to the Eiffel Tower itself.
Overall it is likely to take you around 1.5 hours to get from Disneyland Paris to the Eiffel Tower but is a relatively cost effective journey for those traveling to Disneyland Paris on a budget as it costs only around 15 Euros return.
