VIDEO: Eurostar Resumes Direct Train Service from London to Disneyland Paris; Debuts New Commercial Starring Donald Duck Plush
Getting from London to the magic of Disneyland Paris has gotten even easier.
Eurostar has announced that direct train service has resumed to the resort from London St Pancras International with enhanced safety measures. All guests above the age of 11 are required to wear face masks at stations and on board trains, though they may be briefly removed to eat and/or drink. Food and beverage service has been suspended, so passengers are encouraged to bring their own refreshments. Commonly-touched items like door handles, luggage racks, and toilet flushes will be frequently disinfected. Soap stocks and water tanks will be also be refilled more regularly, so that passengers can wash their hands often. The company is also offering exchanges without fees on tickets up to 14 days before travel.
The two-hour and 49-minute trip brings guests to Marne-la-Vallée, just a two-minute walk to the resort, during school holidays and half terms. Guests utilizing the Disney Express luggage service may leave their bags at the station to be whisked away to their resort hotel. Currently, service between Disneyland Paris and Ebbsfleet and Ashford remains suspended.
To mark the return of service, Eurostar also released a commercial co-branded with Disney, featuring a family enjoying a day at Parc Disneyland, as seen through the eyes of a girl’s Donald Duck plush.
