After more than 20 years of direct trains between London St. Pancras and Disneyland Paris, Eurostar has announced that they will be indefinitely suspending their services on June 5th 2023.
The route is one of the most popular ways to travel from England to Disneyland Paris, but travel agents have stated that Brexit has “taken away the seamless and frictionless travel” that Britons enjoyed while European Union members. The announcement follows the confirmation that Eurostar will no longer stop in Ebbsfleet Internation Station or Ashford International Station.
There is also an issue regarding the €7 entry fee that British travellers will have to pay upon entering France (and other EU countries) as Marne-la-Vallée Station is not built to deal with the number of travellers that will now be required to have VISAS and other entry requirements checked.
Services to France will still be available, however, those travelling to Disneyland Paris will have to transfer trains at Lille or Paris, adding more time to their journey.
Eurostar has not ruled out the return of the direct trains, but they have confirmed that we will not see them resume for at least two to three years. They will now focus their attention on other popular direct routes to the European mainland.
