What train do I take and where do I board?
Disneyland Paris is easily connected to central Paris using the RER A. This suburban railway service runs every 10-30 minutes depending on the time of day and will get you to Disneyland Paris in just 30-40 minutes.
You can get a direct train from the following Paris Stations:
Charles de Gaulle Etoile: Located at the top of the Champs-Élysées, there are several entrances which surround the Arc de Triomphe. Anyone staying west of the city centre should use this station.
Auber: Located on Rue Auber, close to the Opera Garnier and the department stores of Boulevard Haussman.
Chatlet Les Halles: One of Paris’ major interchanges is convenient for those staying near the Louvre, Île de la Cité and the Latin Quarter.
Gare de Lyon: Convenient for those with hotels in the south east of Paris, near Gare d’Austerlitz or Bercy.
For Disneyland Paris you need to get off at Marne-la-Vallee – Chessy. The park gates are less than 5 minutes’ walk from here.
What tickets do I need?
When using the ticket window, you can simply explain you need a ticket for Disneyland (Billet pour Disneyland). You will find that most ticket office staff will be able to help you in buying the correct ticket.
Alternatively, you can use one of the self-service machines, all of which have the option to be used in English. One of the first questions you are asked is if you want tickets to “Paris” or “Ile de France” – choose Ile de France and from here the machines are very easy to use.
Boarding the train
No matter which of the stations listed above you board at, look out for the signs for RER A towards Marne-la-Vallee – Chessy or Boissy Saint-Leger. For Disneyland Paris you need the train towards Marne-la-Vallee – Chessy, be sure to board the right train as from the same platform trains also go to Boissy Saint-Leger.
