Eurostar brings ‘MagicBreaks’ on board to provide Disneyland Paris bookings
Eurostar has partnered with MagicBreaks, the specialist booking provider and largest online re-packager for holidays to Disneyland® Paris. MagicBreaks will be Eurostar’s exclusive partner for selling Disney products. MagicBreaks won Disney Partner Awards in 2015, 2016 and 2017 and this year was also awarded ‘website of the year’ at the Agent Achievement Awards.
Eurostar customers will be directed through the contact centre and website to the MagicBreaks team. Through their call centre or website, the dedicated experts at MagicBreaks will be able to offer their specialist knowledge, helping travellers plan their perfect holiday, with independent and unbiased advice. Advisors have access to the latest special offers enabling customers to benefit from fantastic savings.
The new partnership builds on an existing relationship with MagicBreaks, which has been selling Eurostar tickets since 2009, but this is the first time that they will take the lead on fulfilling bookings. Travellers will be able to purchase packages with Eurostar travel, hotels and park passes, along with individual elements such as the Disney Express luggage service and all the Disneyland® Paris ‘extras’.

- Eurostar is the high-speed train service linking St Pancras International, Ebbsfleet International, Ashford International, Paris, Brussels, Lille, Calais, Disneyland Resort Paris, Lyon, Avignon, Marseilles and the French Alps.
- The current Eurostar train was first introduced into service in 1994 carrying 750 passengers and operating at speeds of up to 300kph. Since then, the fleet of 28 trains has carried more than 150 million passengers between London and the Continent. Following their refurbishment these trains will continue to form a core part of the Eurostar fleet. The new e320 will carry around 900 passengers at speeds of up to 320kph.
- Eurostar was established in 1994 as a partnership between three railway companies: SNCF, SNCB and LCR (London and Continental Railways). On 1 September 2010, Eurostar became a single, unified corporate entity owned by three shareholders: SNCF, SNCB and LCR. LCR’s holding was transferred to the Treasury in 2014, and sold by the UK government to a consortium comprising Caisse de Depot et Placement du Quebec (CDPQ) and Hermes Infrastructure on 28th May 2015.
- Eurostar is a founder member of Railteam, a partnership between Europe’s leading high-speed train operators that is developing simpler ways to book and travel on the fast-expanding, European high-speed rail network.
- Eurostar and Eurotunnel are entirely separate companies. Eurostar operates high-speed passenger trains, while Eurotunnel operates vehicle shuttle services and the Channel Tunnel itself. Eurostar is Eurotunnel’s biggest customer.
