Best way - CDG to St. Lazare train station in Paris

We are getting into CDG at 5:30 a.m. and need to connect with a train to the Normandy beaches by 10 a.m. What is best transport for the euro value and convenience?

Super easy. Take the RER B to Gare du Nord and change to the RER E, which goes to Saint Lazare in one stop. It will take about 35 minutes FOR 8.20€.

Or take the Air France Roissy bus from CDG to the Opera, a few blocks from Saint-Lazare

Kerouac can correct me but i believe the interchange at Gare du Nord from Roissy Rail to RER E at Magneta station, accessed by tunnels from Nord, could be quite a poke?

did it a few years ago and that's what i remember. But unless overloaded that's the way i'd go

No, the Gare du Nord connection is very easy and there are a zillion escalators (like a bank of 10 parallel escalators in some places). I have never seen it at rush hour, but it must be impressive.
