Top Tips for first visit to Paris and Disneyland

Hi there,

So i am coming to paris 21st to 24th September....

We will be flying into CDG...

Disneyland ticket is booked for the sunday

and i have provisionally booked a hotel in Val D'Europe for the three nights but i am trying to weigh up whether we should stay actually in paris centre on the friday night....? what are peoples thoughts ?

Other questions include:

-Cheapest way of getting a one day ticket for the saturday?

-Advice on transfers from the airport.... (should we go straight to val D'europe or into town first.. what is the easiest and quickest way to get to both of these places?

-Anyone recommend any holiday lets or apatrtment rentals for two people.... dont really want to drive so needs to be close to rail..

Any advice or ideas would be much appreciated!

Thanks

Hi,

I have just seen this post on page 3. Don't be afraid to ' bump ' a question back to page 1 if it gets missed. We do try to acknowledge every question, even if we can't help.

We have lots of threads about buying cheaper park tickets from French ticket websites like FNAC, ticketnet.fr, francebillets.com, CEMultiavantages, and others, so have a look at those. Quite a few are linked in our Top Questions lists. FNAC and ticketnet.fr both offer e-ticket option.

If you decide to have an evening or night in Paris, you would then take the RER line A to Val D'Europe the next morning, one stop from MLV Chessy / Disneyland, which is the end of the line. This journey takes about 40 mins.

For transport from CDG to Paris I would ask people on the Paris forum.

Options for transport from CDG to Val D'Europe can depend on your flight arrival time, so hard to advise unless we know that. If you arrive too late to use the VEA bus ( € 19 ) or fast TGV train ( € 15 - € 30 ) then a prebooked private transfer straight to your hotel will be cheaper than a taxi. The VEA bus and TGV train both go to Chessy railway station, so you would then need to take a bus or RER line A to Val D'Europe. Is your hotel easy walking distance from Val DE railway station? Where have you booked?

Regarding holiday lets or apartments - do you mean close to Disneyland? There are a few options, but look at Adagio Aparthotel Val DE, Sejours & Affaires Rive Gauche, and Relais Aparthotel & Spa in Val D'Europe. All are walking distance to the railway station or bus for Disneyland. Read reviews on TA.

You can take the RER line B, then RER line A from CDG to Val D'Europe / MLV Chessy, changing at Chatelet Les Halles in Paris, which is a cheaper transport option, but it does take at least an hour, and depends on what time you land at CDG.

Marriott Village is a self catering holiday village with villas and houses, close to Disney golf course. The local Peps bus stops outside for transport to Val D'Europe and Disneyland, but it is not walking distance to a railway station, so most people who stay here have either their own car or hire one.

We are staying in Paris for 4 days beofe going on to Disneyland Paris & have booked an apartment with a company called airbnb we havent used them before but the communication from the owner has been excellent. Worth having a look at their site if you looking for apartments.

Regarding your question -

-Advice on transfers from the airport.... (should we go straight to val D'europe or into town first.. what is the easiest and quickest way to get to both of these places?

By town, do you mean Paris, which is a City? I'm a bit confused by this part!
