The Marne-la-Vallée – Chessy train station is situated between the major theme parks and the village and in 1994 a connection to the TGV high-speed network was opened. There are also daily services to London St Pancras via the Eurostar. Buses take visitors to the parks while there are a host of major car hire outlets, and Charles de Gaulle airport is merely ten minutes away on the train.
There is a plethora of dining options when staying at Campanile Marne-la-Vallée Hotel, starting with the typically American "Walt’s: An American Restaurant". The menu is sure to appease the whole family. For more traditional gastronomy, "Auberge De Cendrillon" fits the bill, but in and around there are restaurants to satisfy most palettes.
Aside from the regular magic of Disneyland there are few annual events in this new town area, but Disneyland Paris is celebrating its 20th anniversary almost for the entirety of 2012. The park is putting on a massive show that includes the Disney 20th Anniversary Train.
When a shortlist was drawn up in 1984 for the location of Europe’s Disneyland there were 1,200 places on the list. By March the following year this list was wittled down to just two: Spain and France. These two competitors then realised the potential economic gain associated with opening such a park and began offering their financial proposals to Disney. Ultimately Marne-la-Vallée was selected, primarily for its accessibility from central Europe.
