As previously reported, the direct train to Disneyland Paris will be coming to an end from June 2023, in addition to this currently, the Eurostar doesn’t operate every day so the only way you can get the Eurostar is to do it via a connecting train.
For my journey, my train was operated between Disneyland Paris and Lille Flandres.
As it was non-international rail travel for the first part, you just had to show your ticket and then go on board the train.
It was a comfy train ride and much better than many of the UK Train operators you will find.
During the journey, there was only 1 stop which was at Charles de Gaul Airport and this was for around 20 minutes the train then headed directly to Lille Flandres.
When I got to Lille Flandres, I got of the train and turned right (signposted) and then took the walk over to Lille Europe, the walk is around 6 minutes so it’s pretty easy to walk to and also very well sign posted so you won’t get lost.
Once in the station, they will announce when the boarding area has opened for Eurostar and you will have your ticket scanned, you will then go through the French Passport Control to ‘exit’ France followed by the UK Passport Control to ‘enter’ the UK.
The boarding of the train will then be announced, so you can sit and relax in the waiting area which has got a small shop but, must of the shops are prior to going through into the Eurostar waiting area.
Much like my journey to Disneyland Paris, once you arrive in the UK, you can simply exit the station due to having done the Passport checks prior to going on to the Eurostar which is so much easier than airports, as you avoid all of the big arrival queues at the passport checks!
When I travel back to Disneyland Paris, I would deffenatly go by Eurostar even with the in-direct train as had no issues and found it easy.
