Getting back from Disneyland at night

I will be coming back from Disneyland late at night on a Tuesday in July to the Gare Du Nord station. Will there be plenty of taxis there to take us to our Airbnb at night? I would make a reservation for a car or taxi but do not know when my teens will want to leave or when we will return. It is not a very long trip to our Airbnb but I plan to tip well. Thank you very much.

If trains are arriving, then taxis will be waiting. Just be sure to use the official taxi lines and ignore the touts offering their own ride.

Why Gare du Nord? If you just want a taxi, wouldn´t Gare de Lyon or Châtelet points on the RER A from Disney, be easier? Gare du Nord requires a probably unnecessary train change and delay.

I do not know. That is what our Airbnb host recommended for the location to their home. I will check further into it. Thank you for mentioning an alternative, this is very helpful!

Your Airbnb host possibly confused stops on the RER A and B. If you tell us the street where you'll be going, we can give you a better idea about transportation. We don't need the exact street number, to protect privacy.

We will be near the restaurant Le Virage Cafe.

That is all I have as I do not get the address until right before our stay. I think I need to do more research on the differences in the RER system! I just want to make sure we can get back so late at night.

Thank you so much for your help!

That address is about a 5-minute walk from Gare du Nord. I understand why you were told Gare du Nord, but couldn't you walk that far?

Five-minute walk, just walk. We used to stay a 20- minute walk away and always walked. This is a vibrant, active, 24-hour city.

I don't have the RER map in front of me, but you change RER lines at the Gate de Lyon.

Probably Bets meant to say change from the RER A to the RER B at Châtelet. It's one stop to Gare du Nord.

The change between RER lines to get from Disneyland to Gare du Nord can be done either at Gare de Lyon (to the D train) or Châtelet (to the B train) but is much better at Châtelet because you just have to cross the platform and B trains are more frequent!

And you can definitely manage the 5 minute downhill walk to Le Virage Café, whatever the time of the night. Cool area, by the way!
