The station opened as an extension of the RER A in 1992, in conjunction with the opening of the theme park, with Euro Disney S.C.A. contributing €38.1 million of the €126.5 million cost.[1] The TGV part of the station opened two years after the RER station. There are direct TGV services to, among others, Bordeaux, Marseille, Nice, Lyon, Rennes, Lille, Nantes, Limoges, Toulouse, Montpellier, Orléans, Grenoble and Brussels.
