Disneyland is located around 20 miles east of Paris. This region, which still belongs to the direct catchment area of the French capital, is known as Marne-la-Vallée.
This location was not chosen at random, but was found to be suitable after a long decision-making process at the Disney group and intensive negotiations with the French government. On the one hand there were mainly beet fields and a few small villages, so that there was plenty of space for further development and on the other hand a central location in Europe, not far from one of the pulsating metropolises of the continent.
The resort's transport links were good from the start. Two large airports are not far away, the A4 motorway also led directly past it and the train network was gradually expanded.
Have you already thought about how you want to travel to Disneyland Resort Paris? By car, train or plane?
The possibilities are very diverse due to the favorable location in terms of transport technology, so it is definitely worth comparing the offers of the railways or different airlines and calculating what the journey with your own car would cost in comparison.
One of the fastest ways to get to Disneyland Resort Paris is by plane. Various airlines offer daily flights from different airports to Paris. There is a direct bus connection to Disneyland Resort Paris from the two airports Orly and Roissy-Charles-de-Gaulle. There are also metro and train connections.
You can of course also take the bus to Paris. Either you book a bus trip to Disneyland or you drive with a bus company that offers a kind of regular service across Europe to Paris and from there to the resort.
Bus trips to Disneyland are often offered by small, regional bus companies, just have a look in your daily newspaper. You will often find a corresponding offer there.
The Chessy / Marne-la-Vallée train station is right at the gates of the two theme parks and is served by various express trains, such as the Thalys, the TGV and the ICE. For several connections a detour via the city center must be chosen.
There is also often the option of using night train, for example. You can spend a relaxing night in the sleeping car compartment before plunging into the fun in the morning.
If you are arriving by car, you often can take the motorway or the Route National. Both variants have advantages and disadvantages. While you don't have to pay a toll on the Route National, you only get there more slowly than on the highway. The route of the highway in France is sometimes very boring, so you should ensure enough distraction, enough coffee and some entertaining passengers to join you.
