Although they may seem more expensive, Disney hotels are worth the price! Guests who stay at Disney hotels benefit from early access to FastPass cards, extended theme park hours, transportation to and from their resort, hotel entertainment, and the choice to have a Disney dining plan. Disney hotels provide you and your family with the true Disney experience, and there is a hotel for every budget!

If you prefer to stay at a partner hotel, you will have access to some of the benefits of Disney hotels, but not all. To get to the park, there is a free shuttle service to and from each partner hotel.

*Disney’s Davy Crockett Ranch is only accessible via car and is located slightly outside of the park area.

Getting There

If you plan on taking a day drip from Paris, don’t worry about the hotel! Take the RER A train to Marne-la-Vallée/Chessy and Disneyland Paris will be about a two minute walk from the stop. The trip on the RER A will take about 35 minutes and costs 7,10€.

You can also access Disneyland Paris by car. It is about a 45 minute drive from Paris to Disneyland Paris. Take highway A4 and get off at Exit 14 : Val d’Europe, Park Disneyland. It is important to note that this is a very busy highway and oftentimes, there is a lot of traffic so your travel time might be longer. If you’re interested in driving to Disneyland Paris, rent a car from our partner Europcar and start driving!

If you will be staying in one of Disneyland Paris’ hotels, you can take the Magical Shuttle Bus airport transfer from Charles de Gaulle and Orly airports directly to your hotel. It costs 20€ for Adults and 16€ for Children. Infants under 3 years old are free. You can book the shuttle up to 2 days before your arrival.

Helpful Hints

  • Reminder: on Sunday, prices go up! From tours to taxis, prices rise on Sunday so be sure to remember this when planning your trip to Normandy and looking for DDay tours.
  • Want to visit Normandy on your own? Your best option might be to take your D-Day tour into your own hands by renting a car, buying a Normandy Pass, finding a good map, and talking to our travel experts at ParisByM. The Normandy Pass is available at tourism centres and offers visitors some advantages such as reduced rates at certain museums and small gifts. Maps could be available online so you can begin to organize your trip immediately. Rent a car from Paris through our partner Europcar and start your journey!

Getting to Normandy

Most of the DDay tours mentioned, aside from the day trip from Paris, leave from Bayeux, France, a city 20 minutes south of the Normandy Landing Beaches. So, if you plan on staying in Normandy for a few days, look for accommodations in Bayeux.

If you are not staying in the Normandy area during the time of your DDay tour, there is a train station located in Bayeux. To get there from Paris, you will take the train toward “Cherbourg” from the Saint-Lazare station (around 35€ each way). The trip will take about two and a half hours. The Bayeux Train Station is about 20 minutes from the city centre, so you can choose to walk the distance or take a taxi (around 5€).

SNCF Information

It is also possible to fly into the Caen Airport, then rent a car and drive to the city of Bayeux from there.
