Which City Is Disneyland In France?

Pinpointing the Home of Disneyland Paris

With Disney parks and resorts spanning the globe from Shanghai to Orlando, travelers headed to Europe are often curious exactly where they’ll need to journey to visit the famous Disneyland Paris. So which magical city in France hosts all the Disney character meet-and-greets, iconic rides and entertainment that families, couples and children flock to year after year?

The main Disneyland Paris theme park and resort complex is officially located about 20 miles or 32 kilometers east of the capital city of Paris in…Marne-la-Vallée!

Not quite the quaint French town name you might have expected, right? Marne-la-Vallée is part of a newer suburb area outside Paris that was specifically selected and developed with Disneyland Paris in mind in the late 1980s. The trains to Marne-la-Vallée conveniently connect right from downtown Paris in under an hour.

So while Disneyland Paris is not within Paris proper, it’s still a straight shot to soak up Mickey, Minnie and all your Disney favorites after enjoying the City of Light itself. And with both locales accessed via quick public transportation, it’s easy to blend both magical kingdoms into one unforgettable French vacation.

When dreaming of strolling under Sleeping Beauty’s Castle before watching it glitter to life for the nighttime fireworks show, remember the Disneyland that brings storybooks to life in France is waiting right near Paris in the community of Marne-la-Vallée. So start planning that perfect pairing of Parisian culture with days riding Space Mountain, exploring Disney Studios and beyond!
