The Best Way To Get From The Eiffel Tower To Disneyland Paris In 2024

If you are travelling all the way to Paris, you HAVE to visit Disneyland Paris for at least one day. I don’t make the rules…sorry!
Disneyland Paris is probably one of our most memorable trips together- so we advocate for everyone to experience it.

I’ve just returned from my 5th trip to Disneyland Paris, and I can say with certainty that there is something in the happiest place on earth for everyone. The idea of public transport can put some people off, but I’ve traveled there by bus, train, plane, and car and never had an issue yet.

But when it comes down to it: what is the best way to get from the Eiffel Tower to Disneyland Paris?

The 5 Ways You Can Get From The Eiffel Tower To Disneyland Paris

There are 5 modes of transport you can take to get yourself from the heart of Paris to the happiest place on earth:

Which is the most cost effective? Most convenient? Which is better for families? Let’s look into each of these options a little more.


Hire Car

Hire cars are incredibly convenient and can be cost effective depending on how many people will be chipping in.

For example if you are a group of 5 adults, the cost of a medium sized hire car starts at around €210 for 1 day. That is just €42 each for the freedom of a hire car.

Disneyland Paris charges €30 per day for their car park, and it is quite a walk from the car park to the gates.

Important Note: the minimum age to hire a car in France is 30 in some places- make sure to check this before you click “book”!

You will also need to take fuel into account. It is 47 km to Disneyland Paris from the Eiffel Tower- with fuel prices fluctuating, it is best to keep an eye out for any sudden spikes in pricing which may no longer make hiring a car worth it.

It takes around 40 minutes to drive to Disneyland Paris from the Eiffel Tower, and you will need to drive on some busy motorways/highways to get there.

We recommend checking out this page – Driving in France – to read up on French road laws, and make sure you are prepared when driving in France.

Another way you can get from the Eiffel Tower to Disneyland is by the Metro and RER. From the Eiffel Tower, you will need to make the short 10-minute walk to Bir Hakeim metro station. It will cost around €1,90 for a single ticket to Nation station on line number 6.

Once you have arrived at Nation, follow the signs for RER-A to Marne-la-Vallée Chessy. This will have the Mickey Mouse symbol next to it.

Tickets can be brought at any of the machines in the station, and will be just under €10 one way.

RER: A Great Way To Go From Eiffel Tower To Disneyland Paris

It will take around 40 minutes on this journey, on a spacious double-deck train which takes you through the outer suburbs of Paris.

On your arrival in Marne-la-Vallée Chessy, you will see various Mickey Mouse symbols guiding you out of the station, directly to the gates of Disneyland Paris.

Helpful Tip: “Sortie” means “exit” in French. Look out for this word in any place if you feel as though you have gotten lost!


Private Transfer

A more luxurious option you can choose is a private transfer. These can be booked through Get Your Guide, and can usually accommodate up to 5 people.

The cost of this is around €45 per person, one way.

This option means you will not have to worry about parking at Disneyland, nor will you have to handle the stress of driving in a foreign country!

This option is very cost effective when booking as a larger group, and will add a little bit of luxury to your trip! Your day trip to the heart of happiness will be off to a great start.

A regular taxi between the Eiffel Tower and Disneyland Paris will cost anything between €90-€120, and can only take up to 4 people.

This quotation is from Taxi G7, who are the leading European taxi company to go with.

It is important that you book a taxi with a company that is known and trusted, and always get a quotation beforehand.
Do not just get into a random taxi off the street as you don’t know whose car you are stepping into.

This is a good option as, again, you won’t need to worry about driving abroad and the cost of the hire car.


Disneyland Paris Express Shuttle

Last, but certainly not least, of the ways you can get to Disneyland is to use the express shuttle set up by the park.

For just €185 you can get entrance to both parks, ,and pick up and drop off from the City. This is an ideal option for larger groups and those with children as everything is organised for; you will literally just need to get to the pick up location.

The total excursion is around 12 hours long, but this can vary.
You will be picked up from Paris City, taken right to the gates of Disneyland, left to explore the parks, then picked up again at your designated time.

This option is cost effective, safe, convenient, and the atmosphere on the shuttle as everyone is heading off for a day at Disneyland is unmatched.

What To Do Around The Tower Whilst You Wait

Kozy Bosquet

Why not treat yourself at a cafe near the Tower which won’t be too hard on your wallet!
You’ll spend a lot of the day walking and queuing, so it is a good idea not to let yourself get too h(angry).

Frequently Asked Questions

After all this information, you may still have some questions before you decide how you will be making the journey from the Eiffel Tower to Disneyland Paris:

Can I Fly From The Eiffel Tower To Disneyland? 

There are no airports between the Eiffel Tower and Disneyland- it is only a 40 minute drive by car and train, so there is no need for a flight between the two.

If a birds-eye-view of Disneyland Paris is what you are wanting, then make sure to check out PanoraMagique– a 6-minute hot air balloon experience located in Disney Village.

Can I Leave My Luggage At Disneyland? 

Yes, you can!
Before scanning your ticket to enter, you will see “Luggage Hold” by the gates.
Head on over there, and you can leave your luggage for a fee (this varies between €10-20).

This is then open until 1 hour after the park closes, but bear in mind that queues can form so make sure to be there in plenty of time.

You can also use the lockers at Marne-la-Vallée station to store your luggage, again, for a fee.

What Time Are The Parks Open From/To?

At time of writing, the Disneyland Park is open 0930-2300, and Walt Disney Studios is open 0930-2200. However, these hours vary depending on the season.

Use Disneyland’s own Interactive Calendar to find out what time the parks will be open on your desired dates.

Can You See The Eiffel Tower From Disneyland Paris?

Technically, yes- however you will need a range of perfect weather conditions in order to do so.

Disneyland is located around 47 km from Paris Center, and so you would need a completely clear day to catch a glimpse of the monument.

We recommend trying in months such as August where you are more likely to have a clear day; try looking from Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse or PanoraMagique

It will not be a perfect view of the Tower, but it would be pretty cool to say you’ve seen one of the most famous landmarks in the world whilst standing in Disneyland Paris.

If you are able to go to either of these attractions on a clear summers night, you are likely to see the twinkling lights of the Tower in the distance.

Can I Do Disneyland In One Day?

Yes, it is possible to do both parks at Disneyland Paris in one day.
However, we recommend checking the various school holidays in France, and avoid going on the weekend.

We personally went on the first Friday in July, and did not queue for anything at all, meaning we got to do both parks twice in the space of 12 hours!

Does Disney Do Fireworks Every Night?

Yes, every night at 21:30, Disney Illuminations takes place.
This extravaganza is an absolute sight and so worth it when visiting Disneyland Paris.

Whilst the RER and Metro does run late enough for you to stay and watch these, we don’t necessarily recommend using the Metro in Paris that late at night.

If you are dead set on staying to watch the fireworks, make sure to factor that in to your decision of what mode of transport you choose to go between the Eiffel Tower and Disneyland Paris.  


Is Disneyland Paris Safe?

Disneyland Paris is incredibly safe!

You will have to go through bag checks, security, and there is constant security disguised wandering around the parks.

The biggest threat really is either dehydration from queuing in the summer months, or- if you have small children- losing them in the crowds.

This being said- just make sure to take plenty of water, and teach your child a “meet up point” in case you get split up. Disney Cast Mates are always nearby, so there is absolutely no danger at all.


Conclusion: So Which Is The Best Way To Get From The Eiffel Tower To Disneyland Paris?

Well, there you have it; we hope this helped you see all your travel options a bit more clearly now they are set out in front of you.

Personally, we think the Disney Express Shuttle is the best way you can travel from Paris to Disneyland Paris.

Get Your Guide will organise your entrance tickets, and your transport to and from the parks, meaning all you need to worry about is getting yourself to the shuttle, and having the best day ever.
It is also the most cost effective, and safest for tourists.

However, use everything in this article, and consider your options carefully. What is best for someone else, may not be the best option for you.

Have a safe and great trip, and we hope you have the best time!
