Getting to (and Around) Disneyland Paris!

Last updated: May 9, 2018

Just outside of the country’s capital, Disneyland Paris is easy to reach. As it’s a go-to for a lot of families, is probably a good idea to have a game plan before you set out (especially since traveling with kids is always a challenge in and of itself). Here, Trippy members help you figure it all out in advance and even tackle the unusual situation of what to do if you happen to have vertigo!

Where to store luggage at Marne-la-Vallee Station or in Disneyland Paris?

If you’re planning on departing your Paris trip straight from Disneyland Paris that means you’ll most likely be bringing luggage with you. Here are some solutions about what to do with that luggage while you spend the day at the park:

“According to the SNCF site, there are left luggage lockers at Marne-la-Vallée railway station, on the first floor. Open 0700-2200, prices from 5.50 euro depending on the size of the locker (you'll need coins).”
“There are also 'Guest Storage' luggage facilities within Disney itself.”
“There is a luggage storage right to the entrance of Disneyland, after passing under the bridge of the DLH you can drop off your packages or bulky items. Open 8:00 a.m. until 45 minutes after the park closes. (from €3 to €9)”
“There is also an automatic luggage at station "Marne-la-Vallée Chessy" luggage lockers from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. daily”
“Another possibility. Ask the hotel if they will store your luggage for you. We do this regularly and have never been refused. You'd have to go back to get it, but it would be free.”
“I used the luggage lockers at the SNCF station today. It’s very well done. They have a machine that makes change and I got a backpack and a carry-on size wheelie case in the cheapest locker. The guys who staff it whilst looking slightly bored are very helpful if you need it but the lockers have an English option for the operating screen.”

Disney Shuttle Bus at Marne-la-Vallee-Chessy Station

Of course, you’ll need to get from the station to Disneyland Paris. Here’s how to take the shuttle bus to and from it:

“The RER (Line A) goes directly to Disney if that helps. From the station, there are shuttle buses to the hotels - I think Cheyenne and Santa Fe are served by the same buses. It’s a 10-15 minute walk from the station to the Cheyenne by the way.”
“The pick-up point is just outside and to the left - it is clearly signposted. You will be fine.”

Hospitals Near Disneyland Paris

As a lot of people traveling to Disneyland Paris are traveling with kids and older relatives it’s not a terrible idea to know where the nearest hospital is. Here our members tell us where to find help if you have an emergency:

“You have an hospital in Lagny:
Centre Hospitalier de Lagny-Marne-la-Vallée
31 avenue du Général Leclerc
77400 Lagny sur Marne”

Disneyland Paris Train Station Wheelchair Access

Just because you use a wheelchair or have an issue getting from place to place, doesn’t mean they can’t accommodate you at Disneyland Paris! Here are some ideas for how to get by if you have special circumstances:

“Take a shuttle bus from the airport (if you're flying in) but you'd need to contact them for transfers via adapted vehicle. You could consider renting a car.”
“I will add that you will encounter issues at most other stations - especially metro - if you are visiting locations in Paris other than Disney; sightseeing by bus is highly recommended for visitors with mobility challenges. Good luck!”

For sufferers of vertigo, getting from one place to another place while traveling can be an extra challenge as this member explains:

“All I can find out is that there is glass lifts escalators and stairs which are all open. As one member has severe vertigo none of these options are suitable. If anyone has any info on enclosed stairs or lifts please, please let me know. I have spoken to Euro star and normal stairs exist but again are open in the middle of the station. I need closed in stairs or maybe even a fire escape stairs or service lift which is enclosed. We cannot fly as cannot get vertigo sufferer on a plane.”
“Vertigo is not a wheelchair related issue. I know someone who suffers and he simply cannot deal with things like glass bottomed lifts and those ones that go up the outside of buildings. Nor can he walk across narrow bridges like a pedestrian bridge across a road, unless accompanied. Otherwise he is fine. People with severe issues cannot use escalators.”
“I do not know for sure if there are normal stairs everywhere at the Disneyland station. I cannot tell from the website pictures whether they are the ones from the platforms. Eurostar are the obvious people to ask.”
“If you've already talked to the people at Eurostar (although it's really the station you should contact) I'm afraid you might be out of luck as far as an enclosed lift: your companion may need to just cover their eyes on the glass elevator so they can't see the movement. The movement itself should not be a problem if he/she can handle it on an enclosed lift. Again, the station may have enclosed freight elevator but you'd have to contact them, and there may be some liability issues with using it for other than station personnel.”
“If you are coming direct to Marne-la-Vallée-Chessy there are stairs next to the escalators facing esplanade François Truffaut. The problem is if those stairs are open or if they're enclosed.”

Luggage Storage at Marne-la-Vallee Station or in Disneyland Paris?

We will check-out our hotel in Paris in the morning and travel to Disneyland Paris and spend the whole day there. We will then take the TGV train to CDG Airport to catch a 10:00pm international flight. So we have to bring our 4 luggages with us to the Disneyland. Is there any luggage storage either in Marne-la-Vallee station or in Disneyland? Your information is highly appreciated.

Cheers,

Louis

Disney Shuttle Bus pick up point at Marnee-la-Vallee-Chessy Station

From the CDG airport, I will be taking the RER to Marnee-la-Vallee-Chessy Station. Can anyone tell me where is the pickup point for the Disney Shuttle Buses? Is it easy to locate? I will be staying at Hotel Cheyenne.

The RER (Line B) goes directly to Disney if that helps - do you specifically need to get-off at Marnee-la-Vallee?
From the station, there are shuttle buses to the hotels - I think Cheyenne and Santa Fe are served by the same buses.
Its a 10-15 minute walk from the station to the Cheyenne by the way.

OOOps _ I meant RER Line "A" - my apologies.
And - even more humble pie - Marne-Le-Vallee IS Disney! (I thought it was the shopping centre before you got to Disney)
I'll shut-up now!
Anyway, the pick-up point is just outside and to the left - it is clearly signposted.
You will be fine.
Have a great time at the Cheyenne!

Hi- If your companion uses a wheelchair, there appears to be contact information for mobility assistance on this website:

b-europe.com/Travel/Practica...

Another option might be to take a shuttle bus from the airport (if you're flying in) but you'd need to contact them for transfers via adapted vehicle:

disneylandparis.co.uk/practi...

Lastly, you could consider renting a car.

I will add that you will encounter issues at most other stations - especially metro - if you are visiting locations in Paris other than Disney; sightseeing by bus is highly recommended for visitors with mobility challenges. Good luck!

Thanks, all i can find out is that there is glass lifts escalators and stairs which are all open. As one member has severe vertigo none of these options are suitable. If anyone has any info on enclosed stairs or lifts please please let me know.




answered on 5/29/14 by
a VT member from Minneapolis

Is your companion "disabled" as in needing a wheelchair? If not, the regular shuttle bus is probably an option.




answered on 5/29/14 by
a VT member

But how do we get off the euro star when we get there ?




answered on 5/29/14 by
a VT member from Minneapolis

OK, so you're not coming into Disney from an airport - from which you could take a shuttle bus - but via Eurostar from another country? And again, is your companion in a wheelchair?




answered on 5/29/14 by
a VT member from Albufeira

Vertigo is not a wheelchair related issue. I know someone who suffers and he simply cannot deal with things like glass bottomed lifts and those ones that go up the outside of buildings.

Nor can he walk across narrow bridges like a pedestrian bridge across a road, unless accompanied.

Otherwise he is fine.

People with severe issues cannot use escalators. I do not know for sure if there are normal stairs everywhere at the Disneyland station. I cannot tell from the website pictures whether they are the ones from the platforms. Eurostar are the obvious people to ask.




answered on 5/29/14 by
a VT member

Thank you both for help so far, i have two parties one is disabled but not in a wheel chair and can use the lifts or stairs the other person has very severe vertigo so cannot go in the open visual glass lifts or the escalators as they r in the middle of the station. I have spoken to euro star and normal stairs exist but again are open in the middle of the station. IM really struggling! I need closed in stairs or maybe even a fire escape stairs or service lift which is enclosed. We cannot fly as cannot get vertigo sufferer on a plane




answered on 5/29/14 by
a VT member from Minneapolis

OK, I wondered what you mean by "disabled". If you've already talked to the people at Eurostar (although it's really the station you should contact) I'm afraid you might be out of luck as far as an enclosed lift: your companion may need to just cover their eyes on the glass elevator so they can't see the movement. The movement itself should not be a problem if he/she can handle it on an enclosed lift.

Again, the station may have en enclosed freight elevator but you'd have to contact them, and there may be some liability issues with using it for other than station personnel.

Try the number/email provided for disabilities earlier in this thread:

>If you are coming direct to marne-la-vallée-Chessy there are stairs next to the escalators facing esplanade François Truffaud.

The problem is if those stairs are open or if they're enclosed.
