Get to Residence Inn by Marriott Paris Didot Montparnasse from Disneyland Paris

By | March 25, 2024 | in

Ben, we will be staying at Disneyland Paris June 28 - July 1, 2024 & then in Paris for a few days following. We already saw your instructions for traveling from CDG to Disneyland Paris (super helpful!) but wondered what train(s) we take back to Paris & the station name closest to our hotel which is the Residence Inn by Marriott Paris Didot Montparnasse. I downloaded the full route map from one of your links but don\'t see the train station Montparnasse on here. Through a quick Google search, that is supposedly the closest station to our hotel. Is that station known by some other name? Also, is it best to buy tickets now, or day of travel? Your input is great appreciated. Thank you, Melissa from San Diego, California.

Hi Melissa,
The Marriot Didot Montparnasse is closest to Didot tram stop on the Tram T3a line (and not so close to Montparnasse-Bienvenüe, the closest Metro stration to Montparnasse train station).
I'll suggest a route that is a bit more scenic and a bit easier to navigate with luggage than the default itinerary from the city train authority.
Take the RER A train from Disneyland (i.e. Marne la Vallée station) to Nation station, then transfer (using the same RER ticket) onto Metro line 1 (yellow line) in direction Chateau de Vincennes to Porte de Vincennes station.  From Porte de Vincennes, exit the Metro to ground level and take Tram T3a in direction Pont de Garigliano until Didot tram stop. (This is the route on Google Maps.)  Then walk from Didot to the Marriot (Google Maps).
The transfer from the RER A line to Metro 1 can be done using the same RER ticket you used from Disneyland/Marne la Vallée.  But the ride on the Tram T3a requires a regular Metro ticket (a known officially as a Ticket t+).  Transfers from RER/Metro to Tram are not allowed using an RER ticket.  If you're a travel pass instead of a ticket you can ignore this ticket information.
If you're looking to take a TGV train from CDG Terminal 2 to Disneyland, I'd suggest getting tickets as early as you can (usually 3 months prior to travel).  If you're instead taking the RER B + RER A suburban trains, then you can buy those tickets the day of travel, since there is no reserved seating.
Note that the Paris Olympics will be ongoing during your visit and certain transit passes (like the Navigo week pass) will not be sold from June 20 - Sept 8.  Instead a Paris 2024 pass will be available that you may want to use if you're planning on taking Metro/Bus/Trams/RER a lot during your stay.
Please let me know if you have further questions.
