The easiest way to get to Disneyland Paris from the UK
You can catch a Eurostar train directly to Disneyland Paris from London St Pancras in less than 3 hours! This service runs from both London and Paris once a day on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays and costs around £200* return, depending on when you book. You can, of course, travel more cheaply on the Eurostar, but you will need to change trains at some point in your journey. See more details below on other Eurostar options.

Getting the Eurostar to Disneyland Paris vs Flying to Disneyland Paris from the UK
Of course, the direct Eurostar is not always the best way to travel if you’re on a budget, and the non-direct trains are also a very convenient way to get to Disneyland Paris. In between 3 and 4 hours, with a quick and easy change in Lille, you can get a return journey to Disneyland Paris from London for as little as £76** on the Eurostar.

If you are considering flying instead of taking the Eurostar, you can fly to Charles de Gaulle airport for as little as £56***from London, £64*** from Manchester or £79*** from Birmingham. From there you can catch the TGV straight to Disneyland Paris in just 12 minutes, with prices starting from as little as €17.50.
UK airport > Fly > Paris Charles de Gaulle airport > TGV > Disneyland Paris
Prices are therefore fairly similar for both catching the Eurostar and flying to Disneyland Paris.
Of course, there is not just price to consider when booking your trip to Disneyland Paris, you might also want to consider your time. While you’ll need to be at the airport 2 hours before your flight to Paris, an hour before your Eurostar journey is more than enough to get through security and onto the train. You will also be restricted on your luggage allowance and what you can carry on board with you in terms of liquids (or have to pay more for a suitcase) when flying, whereas you can take as much as you like on the Eurostar!
Travelling to Disneyland Paris from Paris
There are plenty of different ways to reach Disneyland Paris from the centre of Paris for a range of budgets.
In Paris there are a few different public transport options: The Metro (underground trains), Bus, the RER (regional trains which travel longer distances in and out of the Paris suburbs) and the TGV (France’s mainline trains). To reach Disneyland Paris you will need to take a route via the RER or TGV trains.
The 2 options are to take the RER A train from the Nation station in Eastern Paris, or take the RER B train from Garde du Nord to Charles de Gaulle airport and then take the TGV onwards to Disneyland Paris. You will likely need to use the Metro or Bus to get to these stations, unless you’re lucky enough to be staying nearby! The train cost for the RER is around €7,50 each way, so it’s very budget friendly.
If you’d prefer to take a taxi, an Uber will cost between €30 and €60 for a regular Uber each way (with fares from the south east of Paris being the cheapest!).
As you can see there are plenty of affordable and convenient ways to reach the Disneyland resort form the UK and from the centre of Paris. And with tickets for the parks starting from as little as £39, what are you waiting for?
