Eurostar will stop running its direct service between London and Disneyland Paris before the 2023 school summer holidays.

The operator said the route into Marne-la-Vallée, the station for the theme park, will not run from June 5 next year.

After that date, passengers will have to change at Paris or Lille.

The direct route has operated since 1996, but Eurostar said it needs to concentrate on core routes as it recovers from the financial downturn caused by the pandemic.

It said it will ‘revisit options for 2024’ next year.

Eurostar said: “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.

Eurostar also said it won’t be stopping at Ashford and Ebbsfleet stations next year and would not be in a position to make any commitment to the call at the two stations ‘for another two to three years’.

The train operator ceased calling at the two stations in March 2020.
