Recommended sightseeing option

Arriving at CDG around 9am on Easter Monday with wife & two kids (10 & 8).

Option 1: Go direct to Disney Hotel (Explorers) by Shuttle/train from airport. Dump luggage then head into Paris for sightseeing (next 2 full days at Disney).

Option 2: Train from CDG into centre of Paris. Leave luggage at a conveniant station (Gare de Lyon?). Then sighsee before heading to hotel later?

Will also do something similar in reverse on Thursday before evening flight home.

Opinions please at which would be best option?

i understand that Paris (and possibly the rest of France) has just been put under a heightened security alert known as Vigipirate Rouge. This means, among other things, that all the left luggage facilities at the Paris stations will be closed until further notice, most likely until after the elections in early May. So that really only leaves you with one option.

There are TGVs (high speed trains) leaving CDG for Marne-la-Vallée at 09:45 and 10:28. More info re timetables and fares at www.voyages-sncf.com, possibly also at raileurope.co.uk. If you are using the SNCF site use Roissy as the CDG TGV station. The site will recognize that bit of shorthand.

Your other option for getting to Disneyland is of course the VEA shuttle.

If you have not already booked your hotel you could always consider staying in Paris and making your trips out to Disneyland from there. (12€30 for the adults, about half that for your children round trip, so ~37€ for the four of you each day you travel out to the parks and back.) In light of the luggage issue it might make sense...

Thanks for the info Irish Rover. We've already booked the hotel.

Looks like the shuttle or train straight to hotel then.
