Eurostar Strikes

independent/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 grve" (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 Macrons 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 dont know what will happen. Im crossing my fingers strike is called off if not and my train is cancelled Im going to ask to go to Paris and get transfers or metro to Disneyland.

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