Paris Disneyland and Paris City Center

by wlfan

Hi
I am taking the Eurostar from London to Paris Disneyland:

1a. How can I get from the Eurostar Paris Disneyland station to Marriott Village d'Ile-de-France?

1b. Does anyone have any reviews on this hotel? as I am a bit concern because I am relying on public transportation, not a private car.

1c. How can I get from the hotel to The Disneyland park?

Also

2. Using public transportation (the metro) how I get from Paris Disneyland Station to Paris city center ( The Louvre area or Eiffle Tower)?

Thank You very much! Any help will be greatly appreciated!

You may want to take a taxi from the train station to your hotel, especially if you have much luggage. The hotel is 3.1 miles (not kilometers) from the train station so is not an easy walk. The hotel offers a shuttle service but it says you must pay for it so you can check their charges and compare them to a taxi.

To get into town, you will need to return to the train station (which is Marne-la-Vallee Chessy) and take the train (RER-E4) direction La Defense and get off at Gare de Lyon where (on the same ticket) you will switch to Metro line #1 direction La Defense and get off at Palais Royal-Musée du Louvre. That is easier than getting to the Eiffel Tower and once inside Paris zone 1, you can take the Metro anyplace you want to visit. Your hotel is in zone 5 so pretty far from the center of town. Most tourist sights are zone 1. The cheaper Metro tickets are zones 1 and 2.

Have you considered staying closer to the Disneyland Park? It is still in zone 5 but it would save you a bit of time and taxi fare. There is a bus that might work too. Check Transportation at your hotel web site. http://www.marriott.com/hotels/local-things-to-do/pardp-marriotts-village-dlle-de-france/

Enjoy your trip.

While Beausoleil has you covered on the metro, have you also considered not staying anywhere close to Disneyland Paris? It's not that great and quite similar to other Disney parks around the world, but I found it kept in rather shabby shape (IE Dirty).

Stay in Paris and enjoy the city. If you want do a day trip to Disney but I'd not stay out there. I'd prefer to be closer to the sights and sounds of Paris.

You can also get reviews on the hotel at http://www.tripadvisor.com and I'd check those carefully.

The poster didn't ask my opinion about Disneyland, but if asked, I'd suggest visiting Parc Asterix instead. It's a French theme park based on a French historic comic-book character so would be a particularly French experience. Disneyland (to me) is not a French experience. Of course Disneyland is open all year and Parc Asterix is not and we don't know when the poster is visiting. He can check the schedule at http://www.parcasterix.fr/v2/default.asp

If the poster has a child, there are so many wonderful things to do with children in Paris. Type Paris for children or Paris with kids into the VT Search Window and do a Keyword Search for all kinds of ideas. This might offer ideas in addition to Disneyland if they have the time for other sightseeing.

Travel Tips for Paris

Visit the Eiffel Tower at about 5:00 pm

by joiwatani

Personally, the best time to go to the Eiffel Tower is at about 5:00 pm when the tourists are dwindling and are about ready to go home and you still enough time and sunlight to see everything at daylight time. And, you will see the lighting of the Eiffel Tower after it gets dark...

The best part to see the whole view of the Eiffel Tower at daytime and or at night time is at the park of the Eiffel Tower. There is a parking lot over there facing the park, but definitely, you can take the whole view of the Eiffel Tower not like just taking the foot or the base of the Eiffel Tower.

Definitely, it is worth going over there at this time. The only thing is you might not be able to get to the Tower. However, you can do that early morning so you don't have to fall in line and you can avoid the many hussles and buzzles of tourists! I love the flickering lights at night. I had the view of the Eiffel Tower while I was riding on an evening boat ride at the Seine River.

Always something to do in this city.

There are so many things to do in Paris that I couldn't narrow it down to just one thing. Our favourite thing to do in Paris is eat! I have fond memories of eating in a particular restaurant which is no longer there. But I also have lovely memories of sitting in the many parks and enjoying the sun and the people watching.

BakPak's bakpak buddies

At the Three Ducks Hostel in Paris. Irish, English, American, Aussies, Kiwis, Dutch ... not a single one from my neck of the woods. I still dream of meeting a Paki on a bakpaking trip ... dont ask why.

Special Sensitivity needed at Sacre Coeur

by fumisme

It may not be obvious to the casual visitor, but Sacre Coeur is the site of an unbroken vigil, 24/7, of persons praying before the Blessed Sacrament, the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. This began when the church was first constructed and has never stopped -- even during two World Wars & Occupation. When you arrive, you can see the Blessed Sacrament in its monstrance, high over the altar. When it is necessary to clean the church, this is covered but before it is, a small monstrance containing the Blessed Sacrament is moved to a side chapel. As you move around, behind the main altar, you will find the chapel because it will be filled with people praying.

Sacre Coeur is open to the public 6am - 11pm. Adoration continues overnight and if you wish to be present then, you must have a reservation in advance which you can do at the website below.

Of course, every person should be respectful when entering any place of worship and you will especially annoy Parisians (and others who are there to pray) if you do not maintain silence. If you must speak, keep your voice very, very low. Also, please do not enter if you are not dressed properly -- that is, no short shorts, halter tops, or other skimpy clothing.

Euros

by GUYON

Since the January 1st 2002, the currency in force in France is the Euro.
One face is common for all the European countries which are in the Euro Area. The other is special for France.
BUT YOU CAN USE THE EURO EVEN IF A COIN OR A BILL IS ISSUED BY AN OTHER EURO COUNTRY.
4 years after the launch of the new money, I can tell :
- we speak "Euro" except for large amounts (the price of a building for example)
- we know some prices in € : the "baguette de pain", meal at the restaurant, a theatre ticket,
- the main change stays in the huge number of small coins (1, 2, 5 €) we handle.

I can say : IT WORKS.
