Guide on How To Transfer from Gare du Nord to Disneyland Paris
Each year an incredible 14.8 million people visit the Disneyland Paris resort. To date over 320 million people have passed through its gates and it remains as popular as ever. The resorts popularity and Paris’ ability to be accessed by 68 million people by road in less than 4 hours and 300 million people in less than 2 hours by air has proved an excellent decision by the Disney corporation.
Located in Magne Le Hongre, 32 km east of Paris, the resort is spread over an enormous 19 km2 site. The resort has two seperate theme parks, a golf resort and several Disney themed hotels. The magic of Disney is well and truly alive and many families in search of Mickey Mouse, Bullseye or Queen Elsa utilise the excellent rail connections in the Parisian region. Many visitors use Eurostar or TGV services which arrive into Paris Gare du Nord station.
Located in the 10th arrondissement, Gare du Nord is one of the busiest railway stations in Europe and only surpassed by Japanese stations. Over 214 million passengers pass through the Gare du Nord doors each year. The station serves the SNCF mainline, RER, Metro, Eurostar and many bus services across the city. The rail networks to Gare du Nord extend as far as the UK, Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands.
Built in 1864, the station was designed by Jacques Hittorff and is instantly recognisable in many films such as The Raven, The Bourne Ultimatum and Mr Bean’s Holiday.
While the station is a major transport hub, public transport connections to Disneyland Paris are not as easy as one may believe and a private taxi offers the easiest journey.

Transfers from Gare du Nord to Disneyland Paris by Train
There are no direct suburban rail services from Gare du Nord to Disneyland Paris. There are several options to use the RER and Metro services, all of which utilise the RER A line towards Marne-la-vallee station, from there Disneyland Paris is a short walk.
The first option is to utilise either the Metro 4, RER B or the RER D line from Gare du Nord to Chatelet Les Halles station, from here you then take the RER A to Marne-la-vallee. If you are going to use this route it is recommended to use the RER D as it tends to be a bit quieter than the RER B and less walking around the station than the Metro 4..
The second option is to catch Metro 5 from Gare du Nord to Oberkampf. At Oberkampf you change onto the Metro 9 to Nation. At Nation you then take the RER A to Marne-la-vallee.
It is possible to use other solutions but they take longer than those listed above.
