    This TGV route is not just from the airport to DLP - its a long distance train and just happens to call at Marne la Vallee (DLP) as its first stop after leaving the airport.

    Good point! I figured that was the case.
    Its good to keep that in mind, its not like it is a full train of Disney-destined families. :earboy2: Kind of like the SWA flights from Oakland to Anaheim, which are not at all dedicated to DLR but usually have several Mickey-eared wearing passengers in either direction. On our first DL trip I surprised my kids, and the moment they realized where we were going was on the airplane when the pilot announced "Happy Birthday to <stranger kid's name> they're on their way to Disneyland!" Same with Orlando flights of course, although on those its like 90% WDW.

    Here is a dumb question but when you get on the RER what do you do with your luggage? We are going to need to take the train from Marne le Valley to Paris to get to our airbnb. I am hoping once we get that booked I can get one close to a metro station so we don't need to use a taxi but is there a place to stow bags or do we just kind of hold them next to us? We aren't bringing huge bags but they certainly aren't carry on size either as we will be there almost 2 weeks and my daughter is going for 2 months. Also we will be taking the TGV from Paris to Toulouse so I am assuming since it is a longer distance train they perhaps take your bags and put them in a baggage compartment?

    On the RER you would hold them with you. Its similar to taking the subway from the airport in many US cities.
    On the TGV for most trains there are luggage storage areas above and between the seats. There is no luggage check/porter type service on the intercity TGVs that I'm aware of. We typically travel pretty light in Europe for this reason, we're usually moving from city to city. But the racks should be large enough for a big suitcase if your daughter needs one. You may want to consider seating on the first level not the second. Its apparently not too hard to get up the wide/shallow steps with hand luggage, but might not be worth the view if her suitcase is very heavy. (Last I rode the TGV they were single story so I'm going by others feedback.)
    A great resource for train layouts in Europe is https://www.seat61.com/ he has pictures and seating maps of most routes. Helpful if you are buying a ticket and planning your seat too.
