I will be staying at the Disney Hotel. Can someone advise which is the nearest Monoprix store?
Preferably one that is accessible by public transport.
The closest Monoprix is in Lagny-sur-Marne at 9 rue Vacheresse. This is about 9.5 kms from Disneyland resort.
Unfortunately this Monoprix is served by the trainline from Paris but not the same as RER A which serves Disney.
The only way I've found for getting there is by taking the RER and getting off at Noisiel. At the station take the bus no. 211 to Vaires SNCF and take the train back to Lagny-Thorigny where you have to walk then about 500 metres. Probably be better to take a taxi IMHO.
There are several Monoprix stores downtown. You can easily take the RER downtown and visit the stores and then return to your hotel. You might even want to do some sightseeing whilst downtown. ;^)
The nearest one given by the Monoprix website is in Chelles on the RER E. You really have to go downtown to change to the RER-E so why not just go to a Monoprix downtown?
Type 75001 into the search window at the following web site and you will get 5 Monoprix stores in central zone 1 in Paris, near Opera, St. Denis, Chatelet and Madeleine. Easy to take your RER-A into Chatelet and shop there. Here's the web site. [original link]
thanks so much to all for the quick & really useful advise!
you mentioned in your reply that "the trip disney to VdE is free disney transport". that's interesting. i was not aware of that. can u advise where we can take this transport? thanks once again.
