Disneyland Paris is no longer a one-day affair, and it is essential to have a place to stay, either within the boundaries of Disney or in one of the many hotels that have sprung up in the surrounding area.It is 40 minutes away by RER train from the centre of Paris, so it is vital to know the geography of this outlying suburb, which is officially called Marne-la-Vallée. The area is more or less circular, with Disneyland in the centre, but none of our selection of hotels is more than a 10 minute drive from the parks and most offer their own free transport.
All Disney hotels have the benefit of early entry to Disneyland Park, at least one Disney character available in the lobby each morning and the convenience of being within walking distance of everything; however, most of the hotels listed below outside the park will be cheaper, substantially in some cases.
