CDG to TGV Gare de Lyon Timing

Jump to last reply

I've seen a couple posts similar to this topic but I feel more comfortable asking this question and including our specific details just to make sure we're not taking too much of a risk with our plans.

Our plane arrives at 5:35 am on 2/13/12. We are planning to go to Nice that same day and were wondering if it would be feasible to catch the 8:49 am train at the Paris Gare de Lyon station. One thing we're concerned about is the ticket for the 8:49 am train is a Prems so it's not refundable should anything happen.

We are going to be going through customs, picking up baggage from the carousel and potentially picking up our tickets at the TGV kiosk in GDL (not sure if I can print the tickets from home). How is CDG when it comes to customs and baggage pickup?

We're open to ideas on the quickest mode of transportation from the airport to GDL. It sounds like the Air France bus is the best way from what I've read. Please help allay my wife's fears!
