Guide on How To Transfer from Disneyland Paris to Gare du Nord
As the busiest train station outside Japan and the busiest train station in Europe, Paris’ Gare du Nord has a staggering 214 million passengers each year on its SNCF, RER, Metro and Eurostar rail services. Trains depart the station to all across France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany and as far as the United Kingdom.
Located in the 10th Arrondissement the station is instantly recognisable for its stunning architecture, designed by Jacques Hittorff in the 1850’s and opened in 1864. Gare du Nord can be found in many famous films including Mr Bean’s Holiday, The Bourne Ultimatum and The Raven.
Many visitors to Disneyland Paris use Gare du Nord as the connection in the French capital, however, despite the train station being a major transport hub the two destinations are not as easy to get between as one may believe.
Located in Magny Le Hongre, 32 km east of Paris, Disneyland Paris remains one of the most popular tourist attractions in Europe. Over 14.8 million people visit the park each year and an astonishing 320 people have visited since it opened in 1992. The magic of Disney draws people back time and time again to meet Donald Duck, Jessie or Cinderella. Sadly all good things come to an end and you’ll need a way to get back to Gare du Nord to get the train home, tired children may make that journey not as much fun as the journey to Disneyland Paris.
When considering how to get to Gare du Nord from Disneyland Paris you should plan carefully, public transport will require different connections and may be extremely busy at times. The private taxi offers the most direct and easiest option between the destinations.
