  • Taxi costs and other helps

    Hi there!
    My name is Violet and I will be travelling with 3 other friends to DLP. Our chosen hotel is the Mercure Tour Eiffel in Paris and unfortunately, this attraction is a last minute addition to our trip.
    So we can't cancel our hotel (plus we're going to Amsterdam the next day via train)


    I'd like to know:
    • how much is a taxi ride from Paris to DLP? 60 Euro? 70 Euro?
    • Cheaper by train or by taxi?
    • Can we get a taxi from DLP back to the hotel? At night? We want to watch the night fireworks.
    • Any taxi companies you can recommend us in Paris?
    • None of us speaks French, so would it be a major trouble in DLP? When speaking with staff for questions and such?
    • Are the attractions all in French? Or are some in English as well?
    • I read in a review by someone in another site, and they noted that there's rarely any characters coming out for photos. Is this true?
    • Also, Disney Dreams, what time does it start and finish?
    • Is December a busy time for rides? We're going on the 12th.



    Thank you,
    Violet C

      In April, at the taxi stand, I was quoted IIRC [If you are a visual learner, here's a good youtube video someone made: How to get to Disneyland Paris on the Metro - English (HD) - YouTube)

      We speak no French and got along very well. However, try to keep a handful of phrases at the tip of your tongue. Hello, goodbye, thank you, please, do you speak English? and my favorite "je vous dre" ("I would like", after which you can stutter and stammer and point and still get what you want) Signs all over have both English and French, and most, if not all, of the restaurants have menus in English.

      I didn't see characters as frequently as I do in California, but we saw some.

      But watch out for early ride closing times! Last time I was there, Autopia closed several hours before the rest of the park. So did the Alice maze.

        Just a little addition Violet, all the cast members have badges on that state what language they speak, and they all seem to have English.

        If you want to see characters, a good place is Disneyland Hotel around meal times (I believe), you can pop out/in to the park at any time.
