There is no train from Barcelona to Paris Disneyland. At present, there are two trains a day from Barcelona Sants to Paris Gare de Lyon, leaving at 09.20 and 16.20 and arriving at 15.53 and 22.45. It is expected that more trains will be added later this year.

From Gare de Lyon, you take RER Line A to Marne-la-Vallée for DLP.

For the best prices on on the Barcelona-Paris trains, book direct with the operator as far ahead as possible. Tickets go on sale 3 months before travel, and the cheapest tickets often sell out quickly. Discounted ticket prices keep going up as the travel date gets closer.

You can get train times and costs, and make bookings, at en.voyages-sncf.com/en but use Antarctic as the "Ticket collection country" to avoid the possibility of being transferred to RailEurope.

If you have trouble with voyages-sncf, www.capitainetrain.com is a private website which has the same prices.

You can use the website http://en.voyages-sncf.com/en/ for info and ticket purchase. Here are a few tips. When entering Paris as your arrival or departure point you will notice a drop down menu appears when you start to type the word ''paris''. Select ''Paris (all stations – FR)'' and this will automatically bring up the correct train station in Paris for your journey. Be sure to uncheck the box marked ''Direct Trains'' to see all options.

If you are redirected to the RailEurope then try again and select ''Antarctic'' as your ticket collection country to avoid being redirected to the RailEurope website. The RailEurope website usually doesn't show all the trains and shows higher ticket prices. Be sure to also look at other ticket purchase options. If you are having troubles with the SNCF website you can try using a new ticket selling website called www.capitainetrain.com. You can also use the German rail site www.bahn.de for schedules but it will not give train ticket prices.

You will need to buy tickets at least 3 months in advance to get the cheapest prices. Last minute tickets are the most expensive.

You are likely going to have yo go from Barcelona to Paris and then take the local RER A train from Paris to Disneyland. There is a TGV station in Disney called Marne-la-Vallée-Chessy TGV so you can look into that.

A great website to learn about trains in France (and Europe) is www.seat61.com if you have any train questions/problems.

To learn how to get around Paris (and between Paris and Disneyland) by métro/bus/RER use www.ratp.fr. Here is a link to a route planner:

ratp.fr/itineraires/en/ratp/recherche-avancee

Here is an interactive map of the system:

www.ratp.fr/plan-interactif/carteidf.php…

Since parts of this website are only in French you can also use www.transilien.com or www.vianavigo.com. Via Navigo probably has the most complete English website. A good website to learn how to use public transport in Paris is www.parisbytrain.com.

Another possibility is take a train from Barcelona to Montpellier where you can connect with the low-cost Ouigo train to Marne-la-Vallée (Disneyland). ventes.ouigo.com/search.aspx?culture=en-GB
