And, with a time difference of only 1 hour, you'll be able to enjoy it all from the very first moment!

Roissy/Charles-de-Gaulle CDG

The Airport
  • 3 Terminals
  • Transport connections via: VEA Shuttle, TGV, Rental Car, Taxi, RER via Paris.
  • Official website: www.aeroportsdeparis.fr

Charles de Gaulle airport is located near Roissy, 25km North-East of Paris and nestled between autoroutes A1 and A104.  By far the largest and busiest airport in France, it is also the second busiest on the entire European continent, with three terminals and excellent transport links.  It was undoubtedly a key factor in the choice of Marne-la-Vallée for the location of Disney's European magic kingdom.

 

VEA Shuttle
  • Journey time: 40 minutes + (depending on your hotel)
  • Adults: 16 €  Children (3-11): 13 €  Single tickets only
  • Recommended for any groups
  • Official website: www.vea.fr

VEA is the official shuttle given license to operate daily between Roissy/CDG airport and Disneyland Resort Paris, with brightly coloured, 75-seater, air-conditioned coaches.  The service stops only at Terminal 2E/2F, with tickets available to purchase as part of your package, through travel agents, at Aéroports de Paris counters or on-board the bus itself.  The bus pick-up points are signposted throughout Terminal 2E/2F with either the VEA logo or text in both French and English.

There are services up to every 45 minutes between Charles de Gaulle Airport and the Disney Hotels (excluding Davy Crockett Ranch), with some of these also serving the Val de France hotels.  All coaches stop at the Marne-la-Vallée/Chessy bus station, allowing onward links to Val de France, Val d'Europe or Marne-la-Vallée area hotels.  Full timetables can be found on the official website.

For disabled guests, VEA have minibuses available to book in advance. See the website for more.

 

TGV
  • Journey time: 10 minutes
  • About € 16 for adults  [More Info]
  • Recommended if times convenient or with smaller groups

For around the same price as the VEA Shuttle, you can speed your way direct to the magic in less than 10 minutes on board a peaceful, luxurious TGV train.  Trains depart from the TGV/RER hub near Terminal 2, accessed via the circular shuttle bus from your arrival gate.  With flight delays, baggage collection and the shuttle bus journey, it will be difficult to calculate exactly what time you'll arrive at the station, and with trains departing only every 20 to 60 minutes depending on the time of day, it can be hard to plan this route.  For sheer speed of arrival, however, this option is astonishing.  You'll barely have time to find your seat before Space Mountain appears in the distance!

A good option might be to use TGV for your return journey to the airport, purchasing your ticket either online or from the TGV ticket desks on the main station concourse at Marne-la-Vallée/Chessy.

 

Rental Car
  • Journey time: 45 minutes
  • Prices vary
  • Recommended for visitors wishing to also explore the region

If you're staying at Disney's Davy Crockett Ranch, a hotel in the Marne-la-Vallée region or just want more freedom and a chance to explore the area, then a rental car is a great option.  Hertz Car Rental is an official partner of Disneyland Resort Paris, with a rental desk located at Marne-la-Vallée/Chessy station and the Esso gas/petrol station near Disney's Hotel Santa Fe.

Hertz have numerous rental desks at Charles de Gaulle operating 20 hours a day, and by supplying a flight number can provide a car immediately upon arrival.  The main desk is located in Terminal 2.

 

Taxi
  • Journey time: 40 minutes
  • About 60 €
  • Recommended for large groups or very early/late departures/arrivals

If you arrive or depart after the final VEA Shuttle and the TGV services don't suit your arrival time, then the resort is just a 40 minute taxi journey away from Charles de Gaulle airport (depending on traffic).  Prices will vary depending on the time and traffic levels, but expect to pay around 60 euros, certainly no more than 80.

If you're a large group or are staying outside of the main resort area, this can be a good option.

 

RER via Paris
  • Journey time: 1 hour 10 minutes +
  • About 14 € or 12,30 € for a 1-Day Mobilis travelcard  [More Info]
  • Not recommended - unless your hotel is along the RER line
  • Official website: www.ratp.fr

Travelling to Disneyland Resort Paris via RER from Charles de Gaulle is very simple and straightforward, with the blue line B from CDG interchanging with Disneyland's red Line A in the centre of Paris at Châtelet Les Halles.  However, with a journey time of at least 1 hour 10 minutes, the hassle of changing lines in the centre of Paris with all your baggage and the hectic bustle of the trains, this is not to be recommended unless you're staying near the centre of town.

Taxi

Beauvais Tillé

The Airport

Despite being counted as Paris' third airport, Beauvais Tillé is a small airport located near the village of Tillé, around 3.5km North-East of Beauvais in Picardie.  Though not ideal for transfers to Disneyland Resort Paris, the airport does offer connections to Scotland and Ireland at discount rates.

 

Rental Car
  • Journey time: 1 hour 30 minutes
  • Prices vary
  • Recommended for most groups here

If you're staying at Disney's Davy Crockett Ranch, a hotel in the Marne-la-Vallée region or just want more freedom and a chance to explore the area, then a rental car is a great option.  Hertz Car Rental is an official partner of Disneyland Resort Paris, with a rental desk located at Marne-la-Vallée/Chessy station and the Esso gas/petrol station near Disney's Hotel Santa Fe.

Hertz has a base at Beauvais Tillé airport, and this is perhaps the best option from this arrival point to Disneyland Resort Paris, should the shuttle bus and RER journey not take your fancy.

 

Shuttle Bus + RER

Beauvais Tillé airport operates a shuttle bus between the main terminal and Porte Maillot on the edge of Central Paris.  From here, you'll need to take Métro Line 1 Southbound to Charles de Gaulle Étoile, then change to RER red Line A4 for Marne-la-Vallée/Chessy Disneyland.
