Recommendations for Paris to Disney Paris given Metro strike?

I am trying to plan ahead for transportation from Paris to DLP on December 16th, given likelihood of the metro strike. I haven’t found a way to access the Disney shuttle, due to having already purchased my entrance tickets to Disney. It seems the only option they offer is a combo ticket, unless someone knows of another way to book their shuttle?

I THINK I found another shuttle on Viator, if anyone has experience using them? Appreciate any suggestions...wish I could count on the dang metro!

Viator is an aggregator, not a tour company, so we can't advise on the quality of the service of that particular shuttle.
If there's 3-4 of you, a cab will work (you can prebook on G7), costing around 70-80 euros to get you there, but I'm not sure about the way back since I don't know which taxi companies operate at Disneyland (it's out of Paris taxi pickup range).
It might also well be, that service on the RER will be good enough to get you there and back, or just back, at least. But we won't know until a few days before Dec 16...

RER A to Disney is operated by SNCF. SNCF had signaled that it might not provide minimum service during this indefinite strike. Taxi on the spot is hard to come by during transport strike. If you need a taxi, best to pre-book in advance (G7 charges 7 Euro reservation fee). I heard of Uber jacking up the price during transport strike.

RER A to Disney is actually RATP, not SNCF, but if the strike of a few weeks ago is an illustration of what to expect, then only a "skeleton" service was running - certainly not enough for a leisure-oriented trip to Disneyland.

I talked to customer service at DNP yesterday, and their take was there “might” be a strike; not feeling too encouraged by might be, given what I have read already, but of the two options I have found so far, neither is appealing. I can purchase new DNP tickets with their Magic shuttle bus, but it is almost $90E extra- yikes!, and they will credit my previously purchased tickets. Or I can reserve the City Vision shuttle for 19euro each, not too bad, but it departs from DNP 15 minutes before closing, so would miss fireworks display- no bueno. So at this point, I am adopting a “Wait and see” as I have a few weeks before departure.
