Magical Shuttle Bus Guide - Disneyland Paris
Our guide explains how the Magical Shuttle bus service to Disneyland Paris works.
If you're wondering how the Magical Shuttle works, you've come to the right place! This is our guide to the Magical Shuttle bus/coach service which transports guests from ORLY and Charles De Gaulle (CDG) airports to Disneyland Paris.
About Magical Shuttle
Magical Shuttle is a bus/coach service which takes guests from ORLY and Charles De Gaulle (CDG) airports to Disneyland Paris. The Magical Shuttle is the official coach service for Disneyland Paris, but it is operated by a third-party company, Transdev. The buses operate daily from around 9 am in the morning through to 6 pm at night. They stop off at every Disneyland Paris hotel excluding Disney Davy Crockett Ranch. They do stop at Les Villages Nature. Although you shouldn't really stay at Les Villages Nature or Disney Davy Crockett Ranch unless you're driving yourself because they are a good few miles away from the parks and there's no shuttle service. At the time of writing the cost is 24€ each per adult per journey and 11€ for kids, but this can of course vary.
Booking Magical Shuttle
Whether you've booked a hotel+ticket package through DisneylandParis.com or a flight+hotel+package through Disney Holidays you need to add a transport option from the airport to Disneyland Paris. At CDG you can catch the train, get a taxi or use the Magical Shuttle service. At ORLY, you have the option of a taxi or the Magical Shuttle service. To book Magical Shuttle you can do so online on their website https://magicalshuttle.co.uk.
If you're not booking a flight+hotel+package through Disney Holidays and instead a hotel+ticket package through DisneylandParis.com, you can add a Magical Shuttle booking to your package. If not, then you can book directly on their website.
Getting Your Tickets
After you've booked your tickets online you'll be sent an email to download your tickets. This email is not your ticket. When we tried this service several guests were trying to show the confirmation email instead of their ticket. You must click on the download link and save the QR code. That QR code is your ticket. Save it or take a screenshot of it because that's what the driver will need to scan.
Finding The Bus Stop
The bus stop at ORLY is super easy to find and very quick to get to. After you've gone through customs and collected your luggage, you just walk around the corner and follow the bus signs.
Once you've turned to the right slightly you'll see the bus stops outside. It's easy to find the Magical Shuttle stop because it'll have bright red signs. There will probably already be a bus there waiting for you.
At Charles De Gaulle (CDG), it's a 10-15 minute walk from the terminal to the bus stop (and vice versa). The pickup/drop-off is between 2E and 2F (this is the only stop at Terminal 2). Easyjet flies out of Terminal 2B, British Airways flies out of Terminal 2D, and Air France operates both in Terminal 2F, Terminal 2E and Terminal 2G.
Don't worry though, it's signposted the whole way to/from the bus stop. Just keep in mind it is a little bit of a walk, but a chunk of the journey does have moving walkways to help you along the way.
What To Expect
When you arrive at the bus the driver will greet you and scan your QR code. The driver will then confirm your hotel and then you can put your luggage under the coach. While I'm sure they'll assist you if you need it, by default you put your bags under the coach (unlike in the USA), however, you don't need to tip anything. Find a seat, and get comfy! The journey takes up to an hour. We found the way to Disneyland Paris was around 35 minutes in the morning and about an hour on the way back to the airport in the evening. The journey time will depend on traffic.
On the way back, your Disney hotel will have a dedicated stop with a magical Magical Shuttle poster with pickup times on it.
