Whilst this may be a bit of a niche post, I wanted to share my eventful first experience of public transport abroad as a wheelchair user, travelling from Disneyland Paris to Paris Gare Du Nord. It was a lack of clear information online that prompted me to write this post, but one thing led to another and it turned into a bit of a story-time instead… But regardless, I hope it will provide the heads-up that somebody else in our situation could be looking for whilst doing their own Googling ahead of their travels.
For any non-disabled travellers, here’s the information you may have come to this post looking for. To get from Disneyland Paris to Paris Gare Du Nord, you need to head to the Marne-la-Vallée/Chessy train station, purchase a ticket for Paris, then head to the platform and board the RER A Route (Red) train that calls at Chatelet Les Halles. From there, you can change train and travel one further stop away on the RER B Route (Blue) to Paris Gare Du Nord. You can book this journey up to 10 days in advance, or simply purchase your tickets on the day of travel. Bish bash bosh.
When you’re a wheelchair user, however, things get a tad more complex.
