Guide On How to Transfer from Charles de Gaulle (CDG) Airport to Chessy
Located in the east of Paris, Chessy is famous for being the home of the Disneyland Paris resort and many hotels. Yet in 1982 the area was little more than a village of 760 inhabitants. The village of Chessy was then subsumed into the expanding suburbs of Paris and in the 2004 census has a population of 2400, largely due to the development of the Disneyland Paris resort. The area is expected to further develop and grow and it is estimated the area will have a population of 6000 when all building is complete.
The Cassassiens live in an area very much like those living in Chessy. The development of the area has changed the landscape dramatically, Paris’ Charles de Gaulle airport (CDG) occupies much of the commune.
