About Marne La Vallee:

The unmistakeable magic of Disneyland
After a shaky start to life, Disneyland Resort Paris has now outstripped the Eiffel Tower as Paris’ most popular tourist attraction. Over 12 million people flood here every year to sample Walt Disney’s unmistakeable brand of family-friendly magic.

There are two main parks to check out. And each is divided into four themed ‘lands’. Disneyland Park is the best known and home to some spectacular rides. While Walt Disney Studios Park is the place to go for extraordinary shows and parades.

Getting to the resort:

If you’re planning on flying, you’ll want to aim for one of the two Paris airports. There are a couple of ways to get to the resort after you touch down, including a long metro ride. But easiest is the regular shuttle bus service from the airport.

By metro: Take Line B3 of the RER – Paris’ regional Metro service – from Charles de Gaulle 2-TGV into the centre of Paris. Then change for Line A3 at Chàtelet Les Halles and head east to Marne La Vallée Chessy station at the end of the line.

By bus: Regular shuttle buses run the 29-mile route from the station throughout the day.
By taxi: Taxis run to the airport in about an hour, traffic allowing. Fares vary, but you should expect to pay somewhere in the region of €60
