CDG Paris Airport to Disneyland by Taxi

Taxis Parisien is always on tap, outside all three CDG Terminals. Queuing up at the official taxi ranks, outside T1’s Exit 24, T2A’s Exit 6, T2C’s Exit 14, T2D’s Exit 7, T2E’s Gate 10, T2F’s Gate 11, T2G’s Blue gate and right out of the T3 Exit doors, Paris airport taxis stand by to offer fast and comfortable rides to the magic Disneyland. Although prices for transfers to the city center are set, journeys outside Paris downtown are metered. Hence, a taxi trip from CDG Airport to Disneyland costs around 80€-95€/80$-95$ and 85€-100€/85$-100$ during the night, while more than 4 passengers raise an extra 4€/4$ per person. Moreover, one piece of luggage is out of charge. Still, every other bag weighing more than 5kg -including strollers, sports, or other types of equipment but NOT wheelchairs- is charged at 1€/1$. Do you want to call your cab? You’ll pay 4€/4$ for the services if the pickup is immediate and 7€/7$ if you schedule an appointment for later. Payments are accepted in cash and bank cards. However, this is not a rule. Thus, it is advisable to carry some euros with you.

Our tip 1: Even though Paris taxi drivers often don’t speak English well, heading to a popular destination such as Disneyland shouldn’t raise any communication problems.

Our tip 2: Waiting lines for a taxi during peak hours can be really long. Nevertheless, a taxi valet is almost always present to assist passengers and speed up the procedures.

Our tip 3: Never trust individual taxi drivers who are unlicensed and likely to scam you.

CDG Paris Airport to Disneyland by Bus + Train

If you are in search of the cheapest alternative for your transfer to Disneyland and you don’t mind the hassle of changing transportation modes or traveling via airport buses with limited storage space, then you should head to “Gare Routière”, located at Roissypôle, close to T3. Passengers arriving at T1 or T3 have to take the free CDGVAL shuttle train to Roissypôle Station, running every 4 minutes from 04:00 am to 01:00 am. Reaching Gare Routière, you’ll find the Bus Line Seine et Marne Express 19E at the bus stand 3E. The bus travels to Torcy, 60 minutes away, and runs every 30-60 minutes, costing 1.90€/1.90$, that is, one ticket t+. If you buy your fare from the driver inside the bus (only in cash), you’ll pay 2€/2$. Children under the age of 4 travel for free. The bus operates from 05:50 am to 11:05 pm on weekdays and from 05:50 am to  08:50 pm during weekends and holidays.

From Torcy Station, you’ll have to hop on the RER A Train heading to Marne-la-Vallée-Chessy, the station adjacent to Disneyland’s main entrance. The Red RER A Line has available routes from 05:49 am to 1:18 am every 5-30 minutes, costs 3.50€/3.50$, and gets to Marne-la-Vallée-Chessy Station in about 10 minutes. Tickets are available through the Torcy station automatic machines and desks.

Overall, your total journey from Charles de Gaulle Airport to Disneyland with the Bus Express 19 and the RER A Train should last 76 minutes (plus an average 30-minute waiting time) and will cost you 5.40€/5.40$. Please note that the Paris Visite travel pass and Navigo Forfaits can be used for Bus 19 and RER A transfers.

Our tip 1: At Marne-la-Vallée-Chessy Station, you’ll find designated storage space upon payment. Hence, you can store your personal belongings there and start your Disneyland journey carefree.

Our Tip 2: One ticket t+ costs 1.90€/1.90$, while a carnet of 10 tickets t+ 14.90€/14.90$). Therefore, if you plan on using Paris public transportation, you should definitely go for the carnet option.

CDG Paris Airport to Disneyland by Regional Trains (RER)

Another alternative for your transfer to Disneyland is the regional Paris rail network. Hence, you can take the RER B Train from either CDG airport station (Aéroport Charles de Gaulle 1 at  Roissypôle and Aéroport Charles de Gaulle 2 TGV placed midway from T2C/D and T2E/F) and travel to Châtelet-les-Halles station, in Paris city center. The blue RER B Line runs from 04:50 am to 00:50 am every 10-20 minutes and needs 37 minutes to reach Châtelet-les-Halles station. Express routes running directly to Gare du Nord and not stopping in between (trains to Massy Palaiseau) are faster and get to Châtelet-les-Halles station in 32 minutes. Tickets for the RER B Trains cost 11.40€/11.40$ for adults and 8€/8$ for children between 4 and 9 and can be bought by the station’s automatic vendors or ticket offices. It is recommended to have some cash with you, in case your credit card is declined by the automatic machines and the Billets Paris et Ile de France ticket desks are closed. 

From Châtelet-les-Halles station, you’ll transfer to RER A Red Line. Fortunately, both trains leave from the same platform. RER A traverses the 40-minute distance to Marne-la-Vallée- Chessy, costing 5€/5$. Its first route calls at Châtelet-les-Halles at 05:26 am while the last at 00:49 am. Waiting time for RER A is minimum as trains run every 5-10 minutes. 

Traveling via the RER trains from the airport to Disneyland takes approximately 80 minutes (you should have an additional average 15-20-minute waiting time) and is priced at 16.40€/16.40$. Navigo Passes and the Paris Visite travel pass are valid for RER train rides. Please remember to keep the train ticket until the end of your journey as you’ll need it to exit the train stations. 

Our Tip: Pickpocket incidents are reported to take place on RER trains. Thus, you should keep an eye on your personal belongings.

CDG Paris Airport to Disneyland by Intercity TGV Train

The intercity TGV trains are the fastest way to reach Disneyland. With a just 10-minute traveling duration, TGVs depart from the 5-floor Aéroport Charles de Gaulle 2 TGV, between T2C/D and T2E/F, and travel to Marne-la-Vallée -Chessy station. Although they seem the top option for your transfer, they have two main disadvantages. To start with, their frequency is often not adequate. Hence, during rush hours, trains call at SNCF Station every 30 minutes, but otherwise, you may have to wait up to 2 hours for the upcoming TGV route. What’s more, their price starts from 19€/19$. However, last-minute reservations can cost up to 35€/35$. Do you think that pre-booking your ticket online is a win-win situation as you’ll secure low prices and avoid the hassle of purchasing your ticket from the Grandes Lignes machines or the SNCF Grandes Lignes ticket offices? At the same time, you risk losing your reservation in case your flight is delayed, or customs and baggage claims are proven to be a more time-consuming procedure than expected.

Our tip: CDG Airport has clear signage to the TGV Train Station. Thus, you should follow the signs towards “SNCF Station” or “Paris by train”. If you are landing at T1 or T3, you’ll have to travel via the free CDGVAL Shuttle.

CDG Paris Airport to Disneyland by Bus

If you opt for a bus ride to Disneyland, you won’t find an ordinary bus line but a Magical Shuttle! The Magical Shuttle runs daily -even during public holidays- with hourly itineraries (actually 30-60-minute routes) from 09:00 am to 06:45 pm. Its fleet consists of air-conditioned and comfortable coaches with plenty of luggage storage area, departing from the bus stop near Exit 8 of T2F. Hence, if you are landing at T1 or T3, you can hop on the CDGVAL airport shuttle to T2F, whereas transfers between the 7 sub-sectors of T2 are handled by the free N1 shuttle bus (except for the T2G which is connected to the other T2 departments via the N2 shuttle). In any case, the bus ride lasts about one hour, while the ticket for adult passengers is 23€/23$ and for kids (2-12 years old) 10€/10$. Children under the age of 2 travel for free. Tickets can be purchased by the Magical shuttle ticket desk, lying between T2E and T2F, online or from the driver inside the bus. The bus stops at the official Disney hotels before reaching Marne-la-Vallée-Chessy Station.

Our tip 1: Unfortunately, the Magical Shuttle buses aren’t accessible to persons with reduced mobility.

Our tip 2: If your hotel isn’t a Disney hotel and the bus doesn’t stop near its premises, you should check if it offers a shuttle ride from Marne-la-Vallée-Chessy (yet upon payment).

Car Rental from CDG Paris Airport to Disneyland

A car rental is always a good idea for your transfer from Paris Roissy Airport to Disneyland, especially if you travel with children or have lots of luggage and/or you want to discover more of Pari’s nearby areas besides Disneyland. Thus, do your research and find the top airport car rental deal for you. After collecting your vehicle, you can start your 45-minute ride to the enchanting Disneyland. After exiting the airport complex, take highway A104 to Mitry-Mory and, after traversing almost 12km, follow A104 towards Lagny-sur-Marne/Marne-la-Vallée/Villeparisis-Centre. Afterward, you should continue to A104 and A4 to Av. Paul Séramy/D344P heading to Bailly-Romainvilliers before taking the exit 14-Bailly-Romainvilliers. Finally, you should continue your way to Av. Paul Séramy until reaching Bd de Parc.
