Eurostar Strikes
 
https://www.independent.co.uk/travel...-a8265876.html

I have read of some French workers striking causing cancellations to Eurostar. We are going to Disney within the time frame they have mentioned. Anyone know if this is likely to cause cancelations to the Disney service or is it just to Paris?

In the event of a cancellation, where would I stand with travel insurance and actually getting to Disney?

Amazing how the French "faire la grŤve" (go on strike) at the drop of a hat - look at the chaos they cause in the port of Calais when it happens there.
It would seem the reason for these strikes are that the unions are opposed to the labour reforms being implemented by President Macronís government. Transport workers in France currently have generous guarantees on employment protection, pay rises and retirement. They plan to strike for two days, work for 3, then strike for two days, work for 3 and so on.

We go soon but on the indirect train. I did notice they were cancelling some direct Eurostar trains. I really donít know what will happen. Iím crossing my fingers strike is called off if not and my train is cancelled Iím going to ask to go to Paris and get transfers or metro to Disneyland.

The direct train seemed OK last week. Indirect not so much.

Just realised my message before makes no sense! 😂

Glad you had no problems.

There are direct trains to DLP but only one a day, and they donít run every day.
