Important information about trains to Disneyland® Paris - Summer 2023

We have taken the difficult decision not to run our direct Disney trains throughout summer 2023.

Our last service will be on 05 June 2023, with all trains between now and then running as normal.
Tickets have not yet gone on sale beyond this date, so customer bookings will not be affected.

As the business continues to recover from the pandemic, we need to focus on our core routes to allow us to stabilise our operation and customer experience.
Whilst we have seen travel demand return this year, we have financial commitments as a result of the pandemic which we will continue to face for a number of years.

We are also monitoring developments in the EU’s proposed Entry Exit System, and we want to focus on providing a reliable service with the experience that our customers rightly expect.
We will still be offering connecting fares to allow passengers to enjoy the benefit of high-speed rail travel from London to Disney via Lille and Paris.

This decision only applies to 2023, and we will revisit options for 2024 during the course of the next year.
