How to Get There
With a wide array of transport options, you can arrive at the magical land of Disney in less than 3 hours. However you choose to travel to the magic, we at Co-operative Travel have cheap holidays to Disneyland Paris for 2015 and 2016.
Whether by plane, train, car or coach, getting to the magic really couldn't be easier. The Park gates are only 20 miles from central Paris, approximately one hour from the Paris airports by shuttle bus, and just a two minute walk from Marne-la-Vallée/Chessy train station.
Make the hassle of a busy airport a thing of the past and hop on board at London St Pancras International, Ebbsfleet International or Ashford International and arrive just 2 minutes’ walk from the Disney Parks.
As soon as the journey begins, you will realise this is no ordinary train ride. From the Disney cast members who will answer your questions about the Parks, to the announcements telling kids when they can catch a glimpse of Sleeping Beauty’s Castle, however old you are, the journey is sure to get everyone excited about the holiday ahead.
What's more, save time with the Disney Express Luggage and Advance Check-in service. This service couldn’t be easier. Simply drop your luggage at the Disney Express counter - where you will receive your park tickets. You are then free to make the most of your time in the theme parks. Your luggage will be waiting for you at your hotel when you arrive from your first action packed day. On your return journey, leave your luggage with the hotel concierge and it will be delivered to the station so you have even more time to get those last few rides in!
Soar through the skies and land at one of Paris’ airports before hopping aboard an airport transfer taking you directly to the magic at Disneyland® Paris.
There is a selection of flights leaving on a daily basis from most UK airports. You can fly with some of the world’s most well-known airlines such as Air France and British Airways, or the budget friendly airlines such as Flybe and easyJet. You are almost guaranteed to find a time and departure airport to suit your requirements.
If you’re flying to Roissy Charles De Gaulle, the high speed TGV express will whisk you to Marne-la-Valle in around 10 minutes - almost a theme park ride in itself! If you choose to fly into Paris Orly, a short shuttle bus to central Paris is required for the linking RER service to Disneyland. A third option is the officially licensed VEA shuttle service which operates several times a day from all Paris area airports - they will transport you to the heart of the magic in around 45 minutes.
Travelling by car is often the most cost-effective option when taking your family to Disneyland Paris. This, however, is not the only benefit of travelling by car. The slower rate of travel gives you time to talk and laugh together, and it allows you to see the stunning en-route scenery of the French countryside. Let’s not forget the opportunity to shop until you drop in Paris as there are no luggage weight restrictions.
Eurotunnel departs from either Folkestone or Dover on a daily basis with a journey time of around 35 minutes. Check-in couldn’t be easier - simply provide your booking reference and vehicle documents along with your passports. You will then be able to visit the Passenger Terminal Building for a spot of shopping - or to stock up on refreshments. Throughout the journey, you can enjoy bright, air conditioned carriages where you can sit back and relax, or get out and stretch your legs. Your arrival in France is even easier as you will have completed customs prior to boarding, so you are free to drive off the train and be on your way.
P&O Ferries have up to 20 crossings a day giving you ultimate flexibility. You can begin your journey any time of day to suit your family’s needs. From shopping at discount prices to enjoying a drink in one of the many bars and restaurants, there is plenty to enjoy once you’re on board. The children’s play area will keep the little ones happy during the 90 minute crossing from Dover to Calais. Be sure to enjoy the spectacular sea views on deck as you sail nearer to the magic. Once you have disembarked, you will travel across the French countryside and arrive in Disneyland Resort Paris in approximately 3 hours.
Travelling by coach means that your holiday starts the minute you close your front door. Possibly the most relaxing way to travel, you will be collected from a local pick up point and you’ll avoid the hustle and bustle of a busy airport. This often makes a coach holiday the perfect alternative for families. A luxury coach holiday offers comfort and convenience, plus they are also great value for money! Just 4 hours from Calais through stunning French countryside, you will arrive at your chosen hotel ready to start your Disney adventure.
