How To Get To Disneyland Resort Paris by Plane

For many guests, especially international guests, traveling by plane is not only a fast (and surprisingly good priced) option but the only way to reach the Disneyland Resort Paris...

...and thanks to the two airports of Paris, Charles de Gaulle (Roissy) and Orly, there are numerous flights from all over the world, by most mayor international airlines including Air France. The later one is the official partner of DLRP and therefor frequently presents special offers for a trip to DLRP or DLRP-connected incentives for the members of its free frequent flyer program. As a budget option RyanAir is offering its service to potential guests of the Resort, too - but as it does fly to two smaller airports in the region only, the transportation to and from the Resort is more complicated.

While guests at either Charles de Gaule or Orly can board a direct shuttle bus to the Disneyland Resort paris (stopping at the station between the Disneyland Hotel and the Disney Village and stopping each of the Disney Hotels with the exception of the Davy Crockett Ranch, which is only accessible by car or taxi; it also stops at the Val de France Hotels), take the RER, a taxi or in case of the airport Charles de Gaulle the TGV. Renting a car for the trip makes only sense if you need it for further trips around the region. In this case you should consider the offers of Hertz, as as official partner of DLP Hertz has a station at the resort and allows you to hand over the car (or fetch it up) right at the Disney Hotels.

If you are not staying at one of the Disney or the Val de France Hotels and arrive with luggage at the resort you may want to store it at the luggage-service next to the guest relations at the right side of the entrance to the Disneyland Park or the Walt Disney Studios. Another luggage-storage is located inside the train station but the operation times of this service are not coordinated with the opening times of the parks.

Airport Charles de Gaulle (Roissy)

The airport Charles de Gaulle (Roissy) is located 56 kilometer northwest of the resort, 23 kilometer northeast of Paris. Guests can choose their method of transportation out of five options if arriving here.

First of all their is the option of boarding the VEA Disneyland Resort Paris Shuttle Bus, which is priced very modestly. It is departing 7 days a week every 30 to 45 minutes (depending on the day of the week and the season) from the airport toward the Disneyland Resort Paris, where the bus stops at all Disney Hotels with the exception of the Davy Crockett Ranch, at the Val de France Hotels and at the bus-station next to the railway-station (located between the Disneyland Hotel and the Disney Village), where the shuttle buses to the Disney Hotels (again with the exception of the Davy Crockett Ranch) and the Val de France Hotels depart.

The first bus departs at the first pick-up stop at the airport at 8.30 am, the last (depending on the day of the week and the season) around 8.00 pm or 10.00 pm. The bus picks up guests at 4 stops at the airport before it leaves for the resort. These pick ups take around 20 minutes (from the first to the last stop), the transfer to the first stop at the resort another 45 minutes, where it can take up to half an hour till the bus reaches the last stop, if guests for every hotel are on board (as the bus stops right in front of each reception).

The shuttle departs at the airport at the following gates: terminal 1 (departure level) gate 30, terminal 2A and 2C gate A11/C1, terminal 2F level 0 (arrival level) gate 0.05 and terminal 2B&D gate D12. Just follow the signs "VEA Navettes Disneyland Resort Paris" from the luggage pick up areas to the departure spots.

If a bus is filled to capacity it will not stop at any further pick-up-spots but an additional bus will be added to cope with the problem. These extra buses may not feature the prominent design of the usual VEA shuttle bus, so ask the driver or VEA-castmember on hand.

For the return trip the bus departs at the first pick-up spot at the resort (the main bus-station) daily at earliest at 7.30 am and then at latest (depending on the day of the week and the season) around 8.00 pm or 10.00 pm. The bus once again stops in front of the reception of all the Disney Hotels (once more with the exception of the Davy Crockett Ranch) before it sets off for the airport, where guests can step off at the same gates they already boarded the bus for the journey to DLRP. While guests of the Disney Hotels just have to show up on time for their bus in front of their hotel, guests of the Val de France Hotels need to reserve their journey on the VEA shuttle bus back to the airport at least 24 hours in advance, as the bus only stops at the Val de France hotels on his way back if ordered too in advance.

Even so the bus driver will choose the fastest route to DRLP based on the current traffic situation guests are adviced to anticipiate their return trip to catch their flight on time, especially on Sunday afternoons - to be more specific: take a bus leaving the resort at least two hours ahead of your plane's take-off-time! Be sure to board a shuttle heading to Charles de Gaulle as the VEA shuttle buses also connect DLRP to the airport Orly.

The tickets for the shuttle bus can be booked together with your DLRP-package or bought at the "Aéroports de Paris"-desks inside the terminal or directly from the bus drivers. For more specific informations regarding the ticket prices and the schedule please visit the official website of the VEA Disneyland Resort Paris Shuttle Bus.

If you don't want to wait for the next shuttle bus or arrive after the last departure you may also take a taxi to DLP - but this can cost up to 45 Euro (or be more expensive during the "night-hours" from 7 pm to 7 am).

Less expensive is the RER which connects the airport with the city of Paris. Just follow the signs leading you to the RER-station, where you board a train of the RER-line B direction "Robinson" or "St-Rémy lès-Chevreuse", exit the train at the station "Chatelet-les-Halles", where you change onto the RER-line A direction "Marne-la-Vallée / Chessy Parcs Disneyland". The whole journey takes about 90 minutes. Exit the RER at the station of the same name which is located at the plaza between the Disneyland Hotel, the Walt Disney Studios and the Disney Village, next to the bus-station from where the free shuttle bus takes you to the Val de France Hotels and the Disney Hotels with the exception of the Davy Crockett Ranch.

Tickets for the RER are available at automated ticket machines and from the station clerks. If you plan to return to the airport or to travel to Paris in the following days with the RER or if you stay at a hotel outside the resort connected by RER or bus you should take a look at the special tickets available too e.g. the "Paris Visite" which is valid for several days on all RER-lines, busses, the metro and the trains of SNCF in the region and includes special offers for museums and landmarks of Paris.

Another option is to take the TGV, which stops at the TGV-train-station of the airport located in Terminal 2. Guests arriving / departing at Terminal 1 are offered a free shuttle bus connection to the station - just follow the signs to the shuttlebus stops / the TGV-station. The TGV offers (with roughly 10 minutes only) the fastest connection between the airport and the resort - and is still surprisingly good priced. Depending on day and time the ticket can be cheaper than the VEA-shuttle and even the RER-trip and is never more than just slightly more expensive than the shuttle. All TGV-trains heading into the directon Paris stop at "Marne-la-Vallée / Chessy Parcs Disneyland" which is located at the plaza between the Disneyland Hotel, the Walt Disney Studios and the Disney Village, next to the bus-station from where the free shuttle bus takes you to the Val de France Hotels and the Disney Hotels with the exception of the Davy Crockett Ranch. From there a short walk also takes you right to the entrance of the theme parks.

To check departure times of the TGV visit http://www.voyages-sncf.fr, enter "airport CDG" as departure station and then choose the TGV option among the offered stations. As destination enter "Marne La Vallée" and choose the SNCF option among the offered stations.

Only convenient for guests staying in hotels in the city center of Paris is the option offered by the two scheduled shuttle busses connecting CDG with the city center. Roissybus operates from all terminals and leaves roughly every 15 minutes and heads for the Opera in central Paris. From the Opera it is only a short walk to the station Auber (underground connection through the station) where the RER A toward Marne-la-Vallée stops, of which the resort is the last stop (alternative you may take the RER 7 from Opera toward Villejuif - Louis Aragon up to Chatelet where you can switch to the RER A). The Air France Airport Bus also scheduled every 15 minutes takes guests to the Arc de Triumphe or nearby Porte Maillot. From Porte Maillot the RER 1 toward Chateau de Vincennes brings guests to the station Charles de Gaulle Etolle where the RER A toward Marne-la-Vallée leaves, of which the resort is the last stop.

The final option to get to the resort is renting a car and driving on your own - you can find the basic directions on the "How to get to ... by car"-page.

Airport Orly

The airport Orly is located 50 kilometer southwest of the resort, 12 kilometer south of Paris. Guests can choose their method of transportation out of four options if arriving here.

First of all their is the option of boarding the VEA Disneyland Resort Paris Shuttle Bus, which is priced very modestly. It is departing 7 days a week every 30 to 45 minutes (depending on the day of the week and the season) from the airport toward the Disneyland Resort Paris, where the bus stops at all Disney Hotels with the exception of the Davy Crockett Ranch, at the Val de France Hotels and at the bus-station next to the railway-station (located between the Disneyland Hotel and the Disney Village), where the shuttle buses to the Disney Hotels (again with the exception of the Davy Crockett Ranch) and to the Val de France Hotels depart.

The first bus departs at the first pick-up stop at the airport at 8.30 am, the last (depending on the day of the week and the season) around 8.00 pm or 10.00 pm. The bus picks up guests at 2 stops at the airport before it leaves for the resort. These pick ups take around 10 minutes (from the first to the last stop), the transfer to the first stop at the resort another 45 minutes, where it can take up to half an hour till the bus reaches the last stop, if guests for every hotel are on board (as the bus stops right in front of each reception).

The shuttle departs at the airport at the terminal west at level 0 gate C and at terminal south at the bus station on platform 2. Just follow the signs "VEA Navettes Disneyland Resort Paris" from the luggage pick up areas to the departure spots.

If a bus is filled to capacity it will not stop at any further pick-up-spots but an additional bus will be added to cope with the problem. These extra buses may not feature the prominent design of the usual VEA shuttle bus, so ask the driver or VEA-castmember on hand.

For the return trip the first bus departs at the first pick-up spot at the resort (the main bus-station) daily at 7.30 am and the last around 8.00 pm. It then stops in front of the reception of all the hotels (once more with the exception of the Davy Crockett Ranch) before it sets off for the airport, where guests can step off at the same gates they already boarded the bus for the journey to DLRP. While guests of the Disney Hotels just have to show up on time for their bus in front of their hotel, guests of the Val de France Hotels need to reserve their journey on the VEA shuttle bus back to the airport at least 24 hours in advance, as the bus only stops at the Val de France hotels on his way back if ordered too in advance.

Even so the bus driver will choose the fastest route to DLRP based on the current traffic situation guests are adviced to anticipiate their return trip to catch their flight on time, especially on Sunday afternoons - to be more specific: take a bus leaving the resort at least two hours head of your plane's take-off-time! Be sure to board a shuttle heading to Orly as the VEA shuttle buses also connect DLRP to the airport Charles de Gaulle.

The tickets for the shuttle bus can be booked together with your DLRP-package or bought at the "Aéroports de Paris"-desks inside the terminal or directly from the bus drivers. For more specific informations regarding the ticket prices and the schedule please visit the official website of the VEA Disneyland Resort Paris Shuttle Bus.

If you don't want to wait for the next shuttle bus or arrive after the last departure you may also take a taxi to DLRP - but this can cost up to 45 Euro (or be more expensive during the "night-hours" from 7 pm to 7 am).

Less expensive is the RER/Metro (Orlyval) which connects the airport with the city of Paris. Just follow the signs leading you to the Orlyval/Metro-station, where you board a train that takes you to the RER-station "Antony". From there take the RER-line B direction "Mitry-Claye" or "Aiport Charles de Gaulle", exit the train at the station "Chatelet-les-Halles" and change onto the RER-line A direction "Marne-la-Vallée / Chessy Parcs Disneyland". Exit the RER at the station of the same name which is located at the plaza between the Disneyland Hotel, the Walt Disney Studios and the Disney Village, next to the bus-station from where the free shuttle bus takes you to the Val de France Hotels and the Disney Hotels with the exception of the Davy Crockett Ranch.

Tickets for the RER and the Metro (Orlyval) are available at automated ticket machines and from the station clerks. If you plan to return to the airport or to travel to Paris in the following days with the RER or if you stay at a hotel outside the resort connected by RER or bus you should take a look at the special tickets available too e.g. the "Paris Visite" which is valid for several days on all RER-lines, busses, the metro and the trains of SNCF in the region and includes special offers for museums and landmarks of Paris.

Only convenient for guests staying in hotels in the city center of Paris is the option offered by the two scheduled shuttle busses connecting Orly with the city. Orlybus connects the airport with the RER/Metro-station Denfert-Rochereau in the south of Paris, from were guests can either take the RER B headed toward the airport Charles de Gaulle or Mitry-Claye, and change to the RER A toward Marne-la-Vallée (with the final stop at the resort itself) at Chatelet Les Halles, or can take the RER 6 toward Nation, where the RER A toward Marne-la-Vallée (with the final stop at the resort itself) stops too. Alternative guests can make use of the Air France Airport Bus scheduled every 12 minutes, were it drops of guests at Porte d'Orleans and Duroc Metro upon request, before the final stop is at Invalides. For a transfer to the resort change to the RER 4 headed toward Porte de Clignancourt at Porte d'Orléans before changing to RER A toward Marne-la-Vallée (with the final stop at the resort itself) at Chatelet.

The final option to get to the resort is renting a car and driving on your own - you can find the basic directions on the "How to get to ... by car"-page.

Ryan Air

RyanAir offers flights to two airports in the region around the resort which it actually advertises on its website as connection points to the resort. These are the airports Paris Beauvais and Reims Champagne.

The airport Paris Beauvais is located 56 kilometers north-west of Paris or 125 kilometers north-west of the resort which equals 90 minutes by car from the resort. But: there is no organized shuttle bus or any other direct connection to the resort, leaving guests only with the options of a taxi ride (roughly 150,- Euro) or renting a car and driving on their own for a direct transfer. As Hertz, the official car rental partner of the resort is operating a rental station in the airport, this is a rather convenient option. If necessary you can find the basic directions on the "How to get to ... by car"-page.

There is also the option of taking the shuttle bus to Porte Maillot in Paris (10,- Euro per person per way for the 70 to 90 minute ride) from where the RER 1 toward Chateau de Vincennes brings guests to the station Charles de Gaulle Etolle. There the RER A toward Marne-la-Vallée leaves, of which the resort is the last stop. As an alternative guests can take a taxi from the airport to the railway station of Beauvais (10,- Euro for a 15 minute ride), from where the TER regional express train via Persan-Beaumont operated by SNCF takes them to Gare du Nord in Paris. After this 70 to 90 minute train ride the resort is only a short transfer by RER away. Details about the last part of the journey can be found on the "How to get to ... by train"-page.

The airport Reims Champagne is slightly nearer, located only 116 kilometer east of the resort - 70 minutes by car. Certainly a taxi ride or renting a car and driving on your own are options here, too as once again Hertz, the official car rental partner of DLRP, is operating a rental car station in the airport (you can find the basic directions on the "How to get to ... by car"-page). But from this airport Routair is also offering guests a shuttle bus directly to the resort - for 29,- Euro one-way / 50,- Euro round-trip per person. Differing from the VEA Disneyland Resort Paris Shuttle Bus from the two major Paris airports this shuttle is not operating on a set schedule and guests unfortunately need to reserve seats in advance by calling (33) (3) 26 40 38 28. The final option would be taking the shuttle bus to the railway station of Reims (gare SNCF) from where several times daily trains leave to Paris. This train ride into the center of Paris takes roughly 90 minutes, from where the resort can be accessed by RER - details can be found on the "How to get to ... by train"-page.
