Default Transfer from Charles De Gaulle to Disneyland

Does anyone have any recommendations on who/what to use to travel from Paris CDG airport to Disneyland and back?

I think there is a direct bus link from CDG to Disney. You just go to one of the bus stops outside the Terminal building.

This is probable the most cost efficient method.

You could also take the train: both CDG and Disneyland have main line stations. But since you are there, why not spend some time in Paris? Personally, if I had the chance to see Paris I would give Disneyland a miss.

Default Paris Shuttle Bus - Opipare Travel

Avoid a company called Opipare Travel (www parisshuttlebus com) - they offer a "VIP" service for a private transfer avoiding the need to drop off passengers at other hotels etc, but then turn up full of passengers - I ended up crammed in the front seat between the driver and another passender with 6 other passengers in the rear seats - 5 of whom had also paid for an exclusive transfer. The other 3 passenders who had only paid for shared transport were also not that impressed as they had to sit with their carry on bags on their laps as the back was fully loaded.

Also looking for transfer and the TGV option appears to be the most cost effective (& quick!). Does anyone know where to catch the train from, we land in AEROGARE 2 TERMINAL E.

We've never been before so no idea whereabouts it is!

Thanks.

The TGV station at CDG is in the same terminal building that your arrive at, terminal 2. You have a 10-15 minute walk from your gate to the TGV station. Just follow the signs for TGV/SNCF with a little picture of a train beside it .

use a company called alpline a private taxi is about 100 pounds return, the taxi is the same price if the are 4 or 6

Works out cheaper they wait for you in arrivals at charles de gaulle very good service drop you off at the door of your hotel, they give you a time to be at the hotel entrance for your return

Can't understand why you've re-started a thread thats almost 3 years out of date
I take the point that you are unhappy with the above company, but you would have been better posting this as a new thread if you wanted to get maximum exposure to complain about the treatment you've had & to warn others about the bad experience with you had with them.
I always think that everythings everchanging & nothing stays the same from 1 trip to the next

Smile CDG to Disneyland Paris

We (2 adults & 2 children aged 4 & 2) have just returned from disneyland paris and as i found this thread useful for our travels i thought i'd comment on it.

Before we left the uk i tried to book the TGV (fast train between cdg and disney station) but couldn't reserve seats and didn't want to chance just turning up on the off chance of getting on.

Therefore, i pre booked the vea shuttle bus (51 euros) from the airport to disney bus station and i booked the return on the TGV (£38.00 approx).

When we go again i will be more organised and book the TGV (through quidco - rail europe) as it was only 10minutes on the train compared to 45-60+ minutes on the bus and it worked out cheaper than the bus.

Like most hotels you have to get a shuttle bus from disney station to your hotel. The bus station is right outside of the train station.

Hope this helps anyone who is looking into transfers. Enjoy disneyland paris x

Wondered if anyone could give me advice, I was looking sat booking the TGV but unsure what time to book it for. We get into CDG at 09.40 and we could get the train at 10.29 but my OH is panicking that our plane may be delayed an hour etc (he always imagines the absolute worst :0), so we could book the 11.00 train. I'm just wondering how long you all leave to fly in before catching the TGV?


Thank you any advice would be appreciated. I'm thinking more the amount of time needed to collect bags, get off plane and find the TGV station.

I think the 11am train is the right choice - the transfer from your landing gate to the TGV station at CDG can be done in less than one hour, but it really depends on which terminal you land at, how much luggage you have to pick up etc. Giving yourselves at least one hour should ensure you make it to the TGV platform in plenty of time .

I am also travelling to CDG in Sept and once we land we will be getting the train to Disneyland but im reluctant to book in advance in case the flight is delayed or any other issues, does anyone know if you can just book the tickets when you get to the station? and also does it cost a lot more?

Thank You in advance!

Default charles de gaulle to disneyland paris transfer

If your looking to travel from Charles de gaulle to disneyland paris here is a bit of advice. The fastest way to get there is by train however this involves carting your cases from one side of the airport to the other finding the right train and again carrying your cases when you get off also the price is not cheap(£76 each way for 7 of us) The second choice is the shuttle bus but this only runs until about 7pm if your arriving late (again price about £75 for 7 of us) I decided to check the price of a private transfer and found a company called inter-shuttle-prestige.com offering transport from the airport direct to your hotel and back at a cost of 80 euros (about £72) each way My only worry being paying on line then arriving at the airport to find no transport but when i contacted them to ask for their method of payment i was told i would have pay half on arrival at our hotel in disney then the other half when arriving at the aiport on the return journey this put my mind at rest. We arrived half an hour earlier than expected and found our well dressed driver in a spotless vehical with dvd player for the kids waiting for us. The journey was about half an hour but was very comfotable and relaxing the driver was pleasent and helped with our luggage. He turned up spot on time to return us to the airport. This must be by far the easiest travel option and of course the less people the cheaper. Would highly recommend
