How to Get to Disneyland Paris From Paris

There are four ways you can travel from Paris to Disneyland Paris:

  1. Train
  2. Taxi
  3. Coach Package
  4. Hire Car

The best way to travel from Paris to Disneyland Paris is by train. The journey takes about 40 minutes and drops you off at Marne-la-Vallée Chessy at the Disneyland Paris park gates.


Time: 45 minutes
💶 Cost: €5 – €8

The easiest and quickest way to travel between Paris and Disneyland Paris is by train. There are two central train systems in Paris:

  1. The Paris Metro: This connects stations within the heart of Paris city centre.
  2. The RER Train Line: This connects central Paris to destinations further afield.

Despite the name, Disneyland Paris isn’t actually in Paris. Instead, it’s located 32km away in Marne-la-Vallée Chessy.

Therefore, you’ll need to take the train from Paris to Disneyland Paris on the RER A line. This line is coloured red on all maps, and the station name typically has a Mickey Mouse icon next to it.

The RER A line leaves from the following stations in Paris:

  • Charles de Gaulle Etoile
  • Auber
  • Nation 
  • Gare de Lyon 
  • Chatelet Les Halles

Depending on where you’re coming from in Paris, you may need to take the metro to one of these stations.

When you arrive at one of the RER A stations, you can buy a ticket to Marne-la-Vallée Chessy. This can be done in one of two ways:

  1. From the ticket machine – Available in multiple languages
  2. From the ticket office located inside the station

The queue for the ticket office is often longer. However, it’s the better option if this is your first time using public transport in France. Most assistants at the ticket office speak basic English and will be able to confirm whether you have the correct ticket.

Train tickets are sold based on zones and may vary slightly depending on the station you travel from. That said, expect to pay between €5 and €8 per person each way. Return tickets are also available for a small discount.

The tiny, lightly carded ticket should be placed into the marked slot at the station for the turnstile to open. This will then take you down to the platform.

Be sure to keep your ticket for the entirety of your journey, as you may need it to exit the barriers when you arrive in Marne-la-Vallée Chessy.

Trains on the RER A line run approximately every 5 to 15 minutes between 5am and 12:30am daily, ensuring you won’t have to wait long for a train. Marne-la-Vallée Chessy station is conveniently located at the gates of Disneyland Paris. Once you arrive you can be inside the theme park within minutes.


Time: 40 – 60 minutes
💶 Cost: €40 – €100

Another quick, easy, albeit more expensive way to travel from Paris to Disneyland Paris is by taxi. Taxis are available in various formats in Paris, including:

  • Traditional Taxi
  • Uber
  • Bolt

If you’ve never used Bolt before, it’s an Uber alternative that’s typically slightly cheaper. 

When it comes to taxis, I prefer Uber or Bolt for several reasons. The main ones are:

  1. You can see the price upfront
  2. You can customise your pick-up location
  3. You can customise your vehicle (ideal for large families)
  4. Should anything go wrong, you have a company to talk to (it never has, but I like that added layer of protection).

However, Uber and Bolt can only be ordered using mobile apps that require mobile data. This means you’ll need Wi-Fi access (free at Disneyland Paris) or an active SIM card.

Both Uber and Bolt can pick you up from anywhere in Paris and drop you off at the entrance of Disneyland Paris. Depending on your pick-up location and traffic, the journey will take between 40 and 60 minutes.

Meanwhile, a taxi costs usually between €40 – €100. This depends on:

  • Type of taxi (traditional, Uber, Bolt etc.)
  • Demand for drivers (on Uber and Bolt)
  • Size of vehicle (regular car or minibus)
  • Pick-up location (distance from Disneyland Paris)

By law, children travelling in private hire vehicles in France do not require a car seat. As such, no hire car I’ve ever been in Paris has one available. For this reason, when my son Oliver was small, we travelled between Paris and Disneyland Paris.

Coach Package

Time: 60 minutes
💶 Cost: varies

Sadly, there are no public buses between Paris and Disneyland Paris. However, many third-party companies offer coach packages. These coach packages come in various formats and have central pick-up locations in the city.

The major downside to coach transfers from Paris to Disneyland Paris is the lack of flexibility. You’ll arrive and leave the theme park at a pre-set time which can be frustrating for those who want to do everything at Disneyland Paris in just one day.

Hire Car

Time: 40 – 60 minutes
💶 Cost: varies

I would not recommend hiring a car to drive from Paris to Disneyland Paris. Driving in central Paris is very difficult, and public transport makes it quick and easy to get around.

However, hiring a car may be a viable option if you plan to explore more of the city’s outskirts during your trip. The roads outside Paris city centre are significantly easier to navigate, and much quieter. Plus, having a hire car provides you with a lot of flexibility.

You can hire a car from various locations in Paris city centre. However, I’d recommend the airport, as it has the most extensive range of vehicles and typically the most competitive prices.

Speaking of prices, it isn’t just the cost of the hire car you’ll need to consider when driving from Paris to Disneyland Paris. Instead, you’ll also need to think about:

  • Petrol (gas)
  • Parking
  • Extras (additional insurance, car seats etc.)

There are no tolls between Paris and Disneyland Paris. However, you may encounter some if you drive elsewhere in France.

Meanwhile, when it comes to parking, I recommend the official Disneyland Paris parking garage, which costs €30 per day.
