As most people planning a trip to Disneyland Paris soon find out, Disneyland isn’t actually in Paris. In fact, it’s not even close to Paris. Technically a part of Greater Paris, the park is situated in Marne-la-Vallée, a town 32km from the City of Lights. If you’re staying in historic Montmartre however, the journey to Disney is a hassle free combination of a metro and train.
The blue metro line 2 runs through the southern part of Montmartre, along Boulevard de Clichy and Boulevard de Rochechouart. These two boulevards are serviced by the stations: Place de Clichy, Blanche, Pigalle and Anvers. Most places in Montmartre will only be a 5 minute walk from any of these stations.
However, should you be located close to to behind the Sacré-Cœur basilica in the northern part of the area, you can take the line 12 from Abbesses, Jules Joffrin or Lamarck – Caulaincourt. From any of these stations you can make the quick change to Pigalle to get the 2.
Take the line in the direction of “Porte Dauphine” and change at the station
Charles de Gaulle – Étoile. The journey is only 10 minutes on the line 2.
At Charles de Gaulle – Étoile you will change to the overground RER train, line A. Take the train in the direction of Gare de Marne-la-Vallée Chessy, which is the final destination and Disney’s personal station.
The A train will then take you across (underneath) Paris and then emerge as an overground train in the suburbs. The journey from Charles de Gaulle – Étoile to Gare de Marne-la-Vallée Chessy is around 50 minutes, with 16 stops on the way. The station is a mere 450 metre walk from the park.
The total journey time from Montmartre to Disneyland should be between an hour and 1hr and 15 minutes.
