How to get to Disneyland Paris from Paris

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. 

So while it is easy to do a Disneyland Paris day trip from Paris, it does need some forethought depending on how much time you have and how much you are willing to spend to get from Paris to 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.

Now, the options you have for getting to Disneyland Paris from Paris are:

  • RER
  • Taxi
  • Private Transfer
  • Shuttle
  • Hire a Car

RER From Paris to Disneyland Paris

How to get from Gare Du Nord from Disneyland Paris via train

How to get from Gare Du Nord from Disneyland Paris via train

In my opinion the RER is the cheapest way to transfer between Paris and Disneyland Paris. 
 
Now a lot of people worry about using the RER for the first time in Paris because of how busy Parisian stations can be and the issue of foreign language. However I would say you shouldn’t be too worried. 
 
The RER is relatively easy to use and with our step by step guide you will be able to navigate the RER easily. 
 
Firstly to use the RER you will need to purchase your ticket. Upon entry to the RER you will notice a series of ticket machines. 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 instructions to get your tickets are easy to follow. The destination you are looking for however is NOT Disneyland Paris but Marne-la-Vallee which is sometimes written as Marne-V/Chessy. 
 
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. 
 
Some stations will also have ticket offices and in most of the central Paris stations, attendants will speak English as well as French. However it is our preference to use the ticket machine over the ticket office which usually have much longer queues than the ticket booths. 
 
Now given that we don’t know exactly which part of Paris you are traveling from we can’t give you exact step by step instructions as we do for how to get from Paris Gare Du Nord to Disneyland Paris or how to get from Charles De Gaulle to Disneyland Paris. However we will tell the type of stations you need to get to to make your journey easiest. 
 
The line you are looking to connect to to get to Disneyland Paris from Paris is the RER A Line. The stations on this line include:
  • Nanterre Prefecture
  • La Dense
  • Charles de Gaulle – Etolle
  • Chatelet-let-Halles
  • Paris Gare de Lyon
  • Nation and 
  • Vincennes

in the central area of the red line. 

The trickiest bit about the transfer onto the A line is that there are two branch line. The Boissy St Leger and the Marne la Vallee branch line. If you get the Boissy St Leger line you are going the wrong way and will end up no where near Disneyland.

However helpful on some signs (though certainly not all of the RER signs) Marne la Vallee will sometimes have a Mickey Mouse ears symbol next to it, to make navigation easier for those traveling to Eurodisney from Paris. Be sure you only board a train that is heading towards Marne la Vallee. 

The best thing about the Marne la Vallee branch line is that Marne La Vallee is the termination point so you don’t have to worry about missing your stop.

At Marne La Vallee you will need your ticket again so be sure that you keep hold of this through your journey. They are undated but also quite small compared to British train tickets so do put them somewhere safe.  Follow the signs marked Sortie (Exit in French). 

Once you are out of the station you will (dependent on your luggage, group and hotel) be able to walk or transfer to a hotel shuttle or local ground transportation to finish your journey. 

To transfer back from Disneyland Paris to Paris you just reverse the journey.

Depending on what station you are starting from will depend on how much your ticket is but usually is somewhere in the region of 5 Euros.

How do you get from Paris to Disneyland Paris via Taxi?

An Uber or taxi between Paris and Disneyland Paris is around 75-100 Euros and takes around an hour to transfer depending on the time of day and level of traffic. 

Can you get the bus from Paris to Disneyland Paris?

Surprisingly you can not get a bus from Paris to Disneyland Paris. The best public transport option to get from Paris to Disneyland Paris is the RER. 

The only bus style transport is to take a Disney shuttle from the airport but this isn’t convenient for those looking to do a day trip from Paris. 

There are some private tours that go via bus to Disneyland Paris however. These have limited pick up points throughout Paris i.e. the Eiffel Tower and Gare du Nord for instance. The packages usually have transportation and tickets included in the ticket price. 

However the only downside to these are that they have very set pick up and drop off times which I personally find very limiting so is not my preferred option. 

Hire a Car to get to Disneyland Paris from Paris

It is possible to hire a car in Paris however it is not an option I recommend. Driving around Paris is very stressful and very busy. If you are not familiar with driving around central Paris I would not recommend just for doing a day trip to EuroDisney. 

It can take a long time  to complete the paperwork at to hire a car in Paris so can eat into your day, and is an expensive option. There are more convenient, faster and less stressful ways to travel to Disneyland for sure.
