Onward Travel from CDG to DLP

I am totally confused by the lack of info available for travelling by train to Disneyland Paris. We will be arriving at Terminal 3 at around 8pm and would prefer to take the train as I understand it only takes around 15mins. Can any help with info what we should do when we arrive at the airport and how much the train for 2 adults and 2 children will cost. Thanks.

I'm in exactly the same position - going to DLP in mid Oct, landing at CDG.

Your choices are:

1. Get the VEA shuttle bus which stops outside T3 and goes to the DLP - dropping off at the various hotels as it goes. My understanding is that it takes 45 minutes to get to the DLP - so by the time it reaches the last hotel (the Disneyland hotel) it's a fair bit later. Off the top of my head the fares are £11 kids and £14 adults - not 100% sure about the kids.

Here's their website along with timetables fares etc: http://www.vea.fr/uk/index.asp

2. Get the TGV from Terminal 2 to Marne la Vallee. This is a 10 minute trip once you're on the train. The fly in the ointment is that you have to get a shuttle bus from T3 (I believe it's Ligne 5 ) to T2 and then find the station and buy tickets and wait for the train.

Here's the main train website: http://www.raileurope.co.uk/

I couldn't get anyone to confirm how long the transfer between T3 and T2 will be - so I'm guessing 20 mins and then a 10 minute stagger with kids and luggage to the station/platform.

My feelings on the matter are that I'm going to leave it till the day. If, when we arrive we're within 10 minutes of a VEA shuttle arriving then we'll wait for that - it's easier on the legs.

If we've just missed the shuttle then we'll try for the TGV.

Note that not every VEA shuttle goes to every hotel - it depends whether you're in the Disney ones or the non-Disney ones as to which shuttle you catch.

Hope that helps.

Meant to say that the train tickets actually work out slightly cheaper - around £26 for us (2 adults, 2 kids - one under 3 and therefore free).

There are all sorts of variables concerning train cost. Day of week, round trip, child discount etc. You can also check http://www.voyages-sncf.com which is the french rail site (for english look for the flag at the bottom left). Make the reservations and then pull the tickets out of the automatic ticket distributor at the train station or have them mailed to you.

There is indeed a shuttle from Terminal 3 and you can actually take it precisely to the rail station so you dont have to worry about locating the station. Just follow the signs to the shuttle then make sure you get on the right one as there are several shuttle lines. It will be well indicated and when in doubt ask the driver.

Hi, same position as me! I'm off on wed with my 2 children & am worried about getting to our hotel. We dont land til 21.50 so am beginning to think I have made a big mistake booking the cheap easyjet flight. Have done some research & it looks like a taxi/shuttle is the only option at a cost of around 50 quid. Could kick myself for not thinking of this before. Good luck...
