Disneyland Paris Half marathon
As you may know, Disneyland® Paris is hosting a brand new event this year: the inaugural Disneyland Paris Half Marathon Weekend running event! During the whole week-end, amazing races and special events for families and children will be taking place.
On the occasion of this event, we have had to rethink the organization of some services of the hotel, for example transport. Here is what you need to know if you are staying at the Explorers Hotel this week-end:
Transport during Disneyland Paris Half marathon
You may know that the half marathon will have an impact on transport as the circuit of the running event passes near partner hotels and the parks. Some further information about transport:
- Free shuttle buses from and to Disney parks
You already know that a free shuttle bus drives you from the hotel to the parks (and vice versa) every day of the year. Usually, it runs every 20 minutes (average) from 6am to around midnight. It is bus number 54.
On the day of the Disneyland Paris Half marathon, that is to say on Sunday 25th September 2016, there will be a few changes.
Firstly, the first shuttle bus will leave the hotel earlier, at 5:30am. The second one will leave one hour later, at 6:30am. These two shuttle buses will drive directly to the parks in 15 minutes. So no problem for runners who need to arrive early on the start line!
Secondly, the next shuttle buses will be diverted and the journey time will be longer. You will need 40 minutes to reach Disneyland Paris. It is the same for the RER/TGV train station Marne-la-Vallée Chessy. Take this information into account if you must take a train, and not to arrive too late!
Concerning the timetable, shuttle buses will leave the hotel at 7:20am, 8:20am and 8:40am. From 10am to 12:30am, they will run about every 20 minutes, still taking a diversion. So journey time will also be 40 minutes.
After that, they will run normally.
- Shuttles to Paris airports
No Magical Shuttle bus will directly leave from the hotel before 2:30pm. If you must be at the airport in the morning, you will have to go to Marne-la-Vallée Chessy train station with the shuttle where you will be able to catch a Magical shuttle (don’t forget to take into account the information about free shuttles, hours and journey times, as indicated above). For more information, please visit Magical Shuttle website or go directly to the reception or Guest Services at the hotel.
- By car
Circulation by car will also be impacted by Disneyland Paris Half marathon. To reach the A4 motorway or Disneyland Paris, you cannot take the same road as usual and you will have to follow a diversion.
To reach the motorway, please follow direction Montry when leaving the hotel, and then direction Crécy-la-Chapelle.
To go to the Disneyland Paris Parking (free for all our guests on presentation of a card given at the reception), you will also have to follow Montry direction, then Magny-le-Hongre and finally Golf de Disney.
Breakfast, complimentary for any stay booked at the Explorers Hotel (as a reminder), will be served from 7am to 10:30am, like on every other day of the year. For more information, please visit the page of our restaurant La Plantation.
But if you are taking part in the Disneyland Paris Half marathon and must be early on the start line, no problem! You have the possibility to book a breakfast box to take away. If you are interested, please contact the reception before Saturday 24th September at 6pm, by going directly to the reception or by calling them (+33 (0)1 60 42 60 12 or 60 15) or by sending them an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Do not hesitate to contact us for any other information of course!
