There are so many reasons why you should go to Paris; you might have done a list. Perhaps you’d like to take a jaunt to the illustrious tower of Eiffel, stroll at the gorgeous parade of high-end shops at Champs Elysees or indulge in an artistic tour at The Louvre. For the child in you, the most satisfying reason may be this: Disneyland Paris.
Located in the beautiful, rustic town in Marne-la-Vallée, Disneyland Paris is a 32-kilometer travel from the center of the City of Lights. If you come with children, there’s a good chance that your little company might be jumping for joy, tugging you to head straight to the theme park as soon as you land in Charles de Gaulle Airport. Take a deep breath; if you’re wondering how to get to your Disneyland dream (and before that, dropping your luggage to your hotel), here are the best routes:
