The exact date Eurostar is cancelling Disneyland Paris direct trains from London

EUROSTAR services between London and Disneyland Paris will be scrapped next summer as part of plans put in place earlier this year.

The company aims to focus its services on just the “core routes”.

Eurostar is scrapping direct routes to Disneyland Paris next year

That means that Brits travelling to the theme park will have to travel on the high speed train via Paris or Lille instead of arriving directly at the park.

The direct trains currently run between London St Pancras and Marne-la-Vallee, next to Disneyland, and take just under two and a half hours.

However, the services will be no more, after the change of service was announced earlier this summer.

The changes will come into effect on June 5, 2023, meaning anyone hoping to travel directly to the park is running out of time to do so.

The rail company blamed its financial recovery from the Covid pandemic as a reason for cutting down services.

It also explained that it will still be monitoring developments to post-Brexit travel restrictions.

A spokeswoman for Eurostar said: “We have taken the decision not to run the direct Disney service between London and Marne-la-Vallee in summer 2023.

“Whilst we continue to recover financially from the pandemic and monitor developments in the proposed EU Entry Exit system, we need to focus on our core routes to ensure we can continue to provide the high level of service and experience that our customers rightly expect.

“Passengers can still enjoy high-speed rail travel between London and Disneyland Paris, via Paris or Lille.

“This decision applies from June 5, 2023, and as tickets are not yet on sale beyond this date, existing customer bookings will not be affected.”

However, Eurostar has not completely ruled out a return to the theme park in the future.

The spokeswoman added: “We will revisit options for 2024 during the course of the next year.”

The service only resumed in March of this year, after the routes were paused during the pandemic.

The news which comes as a devastating blow to Disney fans follows recent progress on the resort’s new Frozen area.

Guests will eventually be able to visit Arendelle, which will be home to Elsa’s ice castle, as well as a Nordic-inspired village that will have both shops and a restaurant.

The service will finish on June 5, 2023 with Eurostar focusing on ‘core routes’ instead
