Please use this topic for all news and service updates for the Eurostar high-speed rail service to Disneyland Paris, as well as your own trip planning questions, experiences and tips!
Disneyland Resort Paris have been working with Eurostar recently to give their DLRP direct train service a bit more a true "Disney" touch. These changes should start happening very soon...
The train is currently referred to simply as "the direct Eurostar service".It will soon have its own name and identity.
(think along the lines of "The Disneyland Train" or "Disneyland Direct"...)
There is currently no advertising in Waterloo, Ashford or Marne-la-Vallιe to suggest the direct service operates.There will soon be: banners and posters at stations; a special plasma screen at Waterloo showing DLRP commericals; plus tests of character appearances and/or a live Disney band at Marne-la-Vallιe to survey guest opinion.
Announcement to board the train isn't very Disney-ish at the moment.It'll soon feature Mickey and Minnie over the tannoy, inviting guests to board "The Disneyland Train".
Kids currently get a basic activity pack.The new pack will feature a rucksack plus games and toys to show them all the best bits of the resort before they get there.
The Disney Express Desk at Waterloo will soon be repositioned aswell (presumably to a better location), and there will be a new one introduced at Ashford.
It's very good to see that DLRP are so concerned with how good the Disney experience is, before you even get there!
