Getting to Paris from CDG is very easy (see Bus and Coach and Trains and Metro pages), but it’s not quite so obvious how to get to the other airports serving the city, Orly and Beauvais. It’s also not especially clear how to get to Disneyland either, despite it being only 25km away. Thank God, then, that CharlesDeGaulleAirport.co.uk has written it all down…
To Paris City Centre
There are scores of companies who will whisk you from arrivals to your hotel destination. As ever, private transfers like this are rather expensive. As Paris has such excellent transport facilities, it’s probably not worth it.
To Orly Airport
It is possible to take the RER, as line B extends north to south through the city. Change at Antony station for the Orlyval, Orly’s dedicated Métro link, which has two stops, Orly Ouest and Orly Sud. From CDG’s main station, Aérogare 2, the journey to either Orly station takes around an hour and 10 minutes, and costs €18.55.
Les Cars Air France operate a coach service to Orly, which costs €19. They operate every half hour, seven days a week, departing from between terminals 2E and 2F. Parties of four or more get a group discount of 15 per cent. The journey takes about an hour.
Various companies will provide a transfer service for you if you book in advance. Naturally, they are very expensive, costing anything between €80 and €200, depending on the company and the number of people travelling. It is, however, very convenient and hassle-free.
To Beauvais Airport
Getting to Beauvais is no mean feat. Like many of Ryanair’s hubs, it is a fair distance from the city it purports to serve (in this case Paris, of course). Thankfully, VEA offer a regular shuttle service for €15.
It is possible to take the RER, change to Métro line 1 at Châtelet-Les Halles, travel westbound to Porte Maillot and take a shuttle bus to the airport, but this convoluted route is more expensive than VEA’s shuttle.
The quickest way to reach Disneyland from the airport is by super fast TGV, which takes just 10 minutes. Tickets at Rail Europe, which can be bought in advance, start at £15 for adults and £7.50 for children.
Disneyland can be reached using different trains. First, take RER line B (from either of CDG’s stations) to Châtelet-Les Halles, change to RER line A and travel east to Marne-la-Vallee Chessy (Disneyland’s stop). However, it costs €14.85 and takes an hour and 20 minutes.
Val d’Europe operate a shuttle bus service throughout the day to Disneyland Paris. They leave regularly from Terminals 2E and 2F.
As with transfers to Orly, there are various companies who will provide a transfer service to Disneyland. They are expensive but hassle-free.
