Easy transfer to DLP from CDG Airport via TGV Train
 
1 Attachment(s)
Howdo,

TGV to DLP is REALLY easy.

Its 9 minutes door to door from CDG to DLP using the high speed TGV train

Remember!
The VEA Shuttle Bus can take well over 1 hour through busy Parisian traffic.
Tickets are currently 38/Adult, 30/Child return - generally more expensive than the TGV.


The TGV platform Gare) is in the middle of building 2 at CDG, which is handy as most flights from the UK generally arrive at Building 2.

If you happen to land at Terminal 2G, then catch shuttle bus N2 to the TGV station.
It is NOT possible to walk from these remote gates.
Journey time from 2G to the TGV station = max 15 mins, bus runs every 5 mins from 05:30 to 23:00

If you land at either Terminal 1 or 3, then catch the CDGVAL light railway to 2 and then walk across to the TGV/Gare station.
Journey time = max 10 mins, CDGVAL runs every 4 mins from 04:30 to 01:30 & every 20 mins fro 01:30 to 04:30

The graph below shows the walking time from the different parts of Terminal 2 to the TGV Station. Note there are travelling walkways along these routes.

Walk Times from Arrival Terminals to TGV Platform
2A ==> TGV/SNCF = 12 mins
2B ==> TGV/SNCF = 12 mins
2C ==> TGV/SNCF = 7 mins
2D ==> TGV/SNCF = 7 mins
2E ==> TGV/SNCF = 7 mins
2F ==> TGV/SNCF = 7 mins

You should also allow about 10-15 minutes to get through baggage and passport control.

The Airport Map is attached.

[B]Book cheaply for your TGV tickets here... http://tgv-europe.com or here... http://raileurope.co.uk
You may book up to 4 months in advance.

inline image DO get Real tickets delivered in the post within 2 working days.

inline image DO NOT wait to buy tickets at the platform - long wait and SILLY prices!

inline image DO NOT opt to collect your tickets from the automated machines at the station. There are only a couple of machines, so again long queues and occasional issues with certain UK credit card types.

The route you need is...
PARIS CDG 2 TGV to MARNE LE VALLEE (DISNEYLAND PARIS)

For a couple of more you can get the PRO 2NDE ticket which allows you to jump on the next trains up to 2 hours later without having to alter your ticket. Of course no seat reservation, but on a 9 minute FAST journey, this wont be an issue. Handy if you think your flight might be delayed.
This ticket may be exchanged or refunded free of charge up to 2 hours after the departure, in the departure town (SNCF ticket offices and boutiques).

There's a great guide to your route through CDG airport here...
http://parisbytrain.com/paris-airpor.../#tgv_platform


Note that you MUST head to the SNCF platform and NOT the RER!
The RER Train takes you from CDG towards central Paris.
This is the wrong way as DLP is 32Km outside of Paris.
