    Default Charles De Gaulle to Gare De Lyon

    Hi
    Me and my boyfriend are landing in Charles De Gaulle on the 20th of February, we then have to get to Dugommier metro station to our hotel (located right beside it). How do we get there the cheapest and quickest way possible? The next day we are going to Disneyland and the following day we are going sight seeing i.e. eiffel tower, notre dame etc. Then on the 23rd we are going back to the airport! Wil we need the paris visite card zone 6? Is that the best option?
    Thanks a million.

    Hi Roisin,

    It'll be more economical to purchase Billet Ile-de-France tickets for your trip from CDG Airport to Paris (which includes transfers to any Metro station within Paris, such as Dugommier) and also from any Metro station in Paris to Disneyland at Marne La Vallée station.

    Keep in mind that Billet Ile-de-France tickets are good for the Metro as well as the RER. For example, when you buy your Billet Ile-de-France from CDG Airport, use it for boarding the RER B to Paris, get off at Chatelet Les Halles, transfer to Metro Line 14, direction Olympiades using the same ticket, until station Bercy, transfer to Metro Line 6, direction Nation, one station until Dugommier.

    This also applies to your trip from Dugommier Metro station out to Euro Disney, which is the last stop on the RER A line, direction Marne La Vallée. Enter the Dugommier Metro station, go to the ticket window and say "Disneyland" and the ticket seller will likely ask "aller-retour?" (return tickets, which are two one-way tickets). Then, you use these tickets for the entire Paris to Disneyland train trip : Metro Line 6 direction Etoile till Bercy station, then Metro Line 14 direction Gare St. Lazare till Gare de Lyon, then transfer to the RER A direction Marne La Vallée, all using the same Billet Ile-de-France.

    If you plan on doing a whirlwind tour of Paris one day, hopping on and off the Metro, Buses, etc., think about purchasing a 1-2 zone Ticket Mobilis, (about 5,80€) which is a day ticket good for unlimited rides until the end of service (12:45 AM).

    Think about using Google Street View to see [urlnf=http://maps.google.fr/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=fr&geocode=&q=dugommier+sta tion,+paris&sll=46.17983,0.461426&sspn=9.447343,14 .611816&ie=UTF8&ll=48.839145,2.390063&spn=0,359.97 7577&t=h&z=16&iwloc=addr&layer=c&cbll=48.839028,2. 389669&panoid=XSQWcMoT1L8wYOqQ0dt2kQ&cbp=12,319.08 57738075155,,0,5:1hoxl8u0]Dugommier station and it's surroundings[/urlnf:1hoxl8u0]. It'll help you find your way to your hotel close by.

    Hi Ben,
    Thanks so much for your reply, it was really helpful
    One more query though the billet ile de france ticket when we purchase it on arrival at the airport can we use it all that day and the next day to Disneyland, is it unlimited for the duration of our stay and how much does it cost?
    Thanks so much

    Hi Roisin,

    The Billet Ile-de-France is only a good for a single continuous journey on the RER & Metro. You won't be able to use it further after exiting your arrival station.

    These billets are priced station to station and if you start or end your journey in Paris, it covers the Metro as well.

    If I understand our itinerary correctly, I think you'll need to purchase one billet for CDG to Paris on the RER & Metro to get you to Dugommier station (8,40€/person), then the next day you'll need another for Paris to Euro Disney on the RER (6,45€/person or 12,90€ for 2 tickets, one each way).

    Best regards Roisin,
