In this guide, we’re going to discuss how to travel from Orly Airport to Disneyland Paris via various different methods of transport. So, whether you’re a family or a solo-backpacker, a budget conscious traveller or looking for something a little more exclusive, this travel guide between Orly Aiport and Disneyland Paris should help you to decide the right method of transport for your journey.
Orly Airport is situated 15km south of Paris and 41km south-west of Disneyland Paris. Despite Charles De Gaul taking the majority of the Parisian air traffic, Orly airport is still the 2nd busiest airport in France and the 12th busiest airport within Europe. If you’re flying into the other airport located near Paris Beauvais (BVA) then you’ll need this guide instead.
Orly To Disneyland Paris – By Hire Car
If you’re planning on hiring a car during your trip to France, then you’ll likely be picking it up from Orly airport. We always recommend using a comparison website like the one below to compare prices of hire cars before making any agreements as this can save you a significant amount of money.
The journey will take roughly 40 minutes to 1 hour depending on traffic levels. From the airport, you’ll be heading around onto the A106. Before shortly going on to join the A86 around the Belle Épine shopping centre and Thiais Village.
From there you’ll join the A4 for the remainder of your journey, only exiting the motorway at junction 14 for Disneyland Paris. The route is well signposted once you join the A4 motorway should you struggle to follow these instructions or a navigation system.
When it comes to parking at Disneyland Paris, if you’re staying on-site at one of the Disney hotels then parking is complimentary with buses regularly running to transfer guests between the parks and Disney hotels.
If you’re not planning to stay on-site at Disneyland Paris then you’ll need to check your hotel at the time of booking for the terms and conditions on parking. Some charge an additional fee per night, while others allow you to park your car in the car park for free.
In our opinion hiring a car and driving from Orly to Disneyland Paris is only worthwhile for those who are planning on travelling around France further before or after a stay at Disneyland Paris. Otherwise, the cost and inconvenience aren’t worth it – at least not in our opinion.
Orly To Disneyland Paris – By Taxi

If you’re planning on booking your transfers between Orly Airport and Disneyland Paris in advance – which we suggest you do (it just takes the whole hassle out of everything, especially if you’re looking at travelling by taxi). Then we recommend using the price comparison website, Hoppa.
Not only do they offer public arranged transfers on coaches, but they also compare prices for private transfers such as taxis. I managed to get a quote for one four-seater car for £48.04 / €54 (one-way)
Alternatively, if you’re travelling as a large party then you could hire a private minibus to transfer you via Hoppa. This is estimated to cost around £81 / €91 each way.
Again, the prices of transfers are likely to depend on the time of day/year you’re travelling. However, we always use Hoppa to ensure we’re getting the best value for money from our transfers regardless of where in the world were travelling.
Orly To Disneyland Paris – By Bus
If you’re staying on-site at one of the Disneyland Paris hotels then you can pre-book your transfer from Orly Airport to Disneyland Paris on the magic bus during the booking process. Alternatively, you can book your transfer on the Magic Shuttle website.
While this isn’t the only way to get from Orly to Disneyland Paris by bus, it’s certainly the most recommended. The quality of the service is fantastic, and there’s more available on transfers than with any other company.
Orly To Disneyland Paris – By Train
Finally, you can travel from Orly Airport to Disneyland Paris (or vice-versa) by train. Sadly, this isn’t as straightforward as when completing this journey from Charles De Gaul and instead will take around 1.5 hours and require multiple changes.
You can board the train out of Orly Airport from either the South or West terminal. From here you’ll take the short journey to Antony on the OrlyVal line. Orlyval shuttles run from 6.00am to 11.35 pm and costs €9.30 at the time of writing for a one-way journey.
From Antony, you’ll want to take the RER (exactly which RER train will depend on your arrival time into Antony).
The vast majority of these train transfers happen in the centre of Paris (Châtelet – Les Halles) or at CDG airport, from which you’d be able to follow the instructions for CDG to Disneyland Paris.
Unlike some of the other Disney parks around the world. Upon arriving at Gare de Marne la Vallée Chessy station you’ll see very few signs advertising Disneyland Paris despite the fact it’s simply outside the doors of the station.
Upon leaving the station if you’re staying at Disney on-site hotel then I suggest going to the bus park which is located outside the doors to the left (if you’re unsure as a member of staff) and getting the dedicated bus back to the specific hotel. This area is a hot zone for potential scammers and pickpockets due to the number of tourists here – read our guide on scams in Paris so you know what to look out for.
Otherwise, take the exit towards the parks and you can enter security and the Disney Village direct from there.
For larger parties, families or the elderly, I wouldn’t recommend taking the train from Orly Airport to Disneyland Paris due to the length of the journey and the number of changes. Instead, I’d recommend one of the alternate transport methods highlighted above.
That’s our complete guide on how to get from Orly Airport to Disneyland Paris. As always we’d love to know if you’ve noticed any changes about our guide that you think we need to update everyone on to ensure everyone has a smooth journey.
