rer tRAINS FROM CDG t2 to disneyland® Paris
To get to Disneyland® Paris by train from CDG Airport the TGV fast train (at only 10 minutes) is the fastest and best route if you are travelling fairly light. At 35€ it is not the cheapest train ride as there is also the option of an indirect route via the RER regional train. You should use the RER B in the direction of 'Massy Palaiseau' to Châtelet les Halles, change and take the RER A in the direction of 'Marne La Vallée Chessy to Marne' which is the station at the entrance to the park. The ticket price at 17.30€ is attractive but you have to offset it with the fact that it has a journey time of around 1hour and 40 minutes. So if you are on a budget,travelling light and in no rush, here's how:
After arriving at Terminal 2 follow the signs for 'Gare SNCF' you will eventually reach the large antrum that is level 4, you are greeted by the massive flight display board and SNCF's (the French railway company) not too subtle pink columns letting you know you have to go down to get to the station
You will find plenty of ticket vending machines at the station. You have to use the 'Billetterie Ile-de-France' vending machines as they sell tickets for the RER B regional trains. You must use a 'smart chip enabled' card at these machines or cash.
They are 'touch screens' with multi-language choices and easy to use. You are buying a ticket for 'Marne-La-Vallée – Chessy' which is the station at the entrance to Disneyland Paris and it will cost you around 18 euros.
You have to select Marne-la-Vallée-Chessy (MLVChessy) as you final destination then use use the RER B train in the direction of 'Massy Palaiseau' you travel to 'Châtelet les Halles' in the city, change and take the RER A back out east in the direction Marne-la-Vallée-Chessy (your stop for Disneyland®). If you can, try and take one of the 'express' trains normally marked 'KARI' as above. These trains only stop at main stations so tend to be less busy so if you are travelling with luggage you may have more space.
If you have a problem with paying for your tickets with your card or do not have euros you can buy them from the nearby SNCF ticket office, though this can be a busy place at times.Once you have your ticket you then descend to Level 1 - which is a mid-level landing and seems like a great waste of space, before continuing to follow the signs .
Remember the station is split into two distinct sides, the one you want is for RER suburban trains for Paris city centre - be sure and choose the right one! Just follow the signs or ask for assistance.
Chatelet Les-Halles is actually the largest underground station in Europe but don't let that put you off as it is well signposted.You have to make your way to the RER line A4 and take the train in the direction of Marne-la-Vallee. On the Platform you will find an overhead illuminated sign highlighting the route of the arriving train with all the stops on that route lit up.
Journey time around 1 hour.
*Please note: because of the number of lines through this station it is best avoided at peak times.
You will arrive at the station 'Marne-la-Vallee / Chessy, Paris Disneyland®' which is on the plaza between the Disneyland® Hotel, the Walt Disney Studios and the Disney® Village.
