    We are considering spending the week before Easter in London next year, with an overnight to DLP. My question is how far in advance you can book the Eurostar? Thanks!

    According to the website 5 days to 180 days prior to your trip

    Got mine for July today. Apparently the advance price is not based on time (14 day advance, etc) but, rather, there are X seats at this price, then X at the next highest.....

    A bientot.

    Sounds like I'd better get on this at the 180 day mark, in order to get the best price!

    Especially if you wish to travel on the direct DLP Eurostar at a busy holiday period. If left too late, I have seen the cost of a single oneway ticket be almost as much as my family of 5 return ticket total! :scared1:

    Yes as I have just found out, I just booked for early june and found that instead of the weekday fares of £79 for A,Y,C each way i've had to pay, £92 there and £112 back! £40 more expensive than i expected to pay, and i'd only seen the £79 price the day before! so get booking asap!

    One other question. Is it possible to book this on the Eurostar website from the U.S.?

    Yes.

    I booked mine last November (for March). You can have the tickets sent to you, but they will charge a shipping charge. Or you can pick them up on the day of travel at the station. Can't recall exactly what I paid, but I think it was about $80 or so one-way (London-DLP).

    It was $243 for 2 adults, 1 child 1 way DLP-London for July, plus $15 shipping. Bought through Rick Steves web site which includes a European travel tips DVD and map, plus 20% off a future online purchase.

    A bientot.

    Yes, and it's probably a very good idea to book tickets as soon as you can for prices/availability.

    We waffled about dates for awhile, and availability changed and prices went up.

    We did not have the option to have the Eurostar tickets sent to us when we booked them directly; we will have to pick them up at Waterloo the morning of our travel to DLP.

    Also, be aware that Americans cannot get the Disney Express service on Eurostar.

    Thinking about this I guess it is because the EU allows for free access between member states and therefore customs is not an issue for UK travellers. As a USA citizen you have to clear United Kingdom customs at Waterloo and Frence customs at Calais :)

    Seems odd to me that I should be treated any differently than anyone else getting on the same train to the same destination. Whatever...I'll do what's necessary to make the trip happen, and if it means my kids get another stamp on their passport, they'll be pleased with that.

    Yes, it seems odd. But it all evens out: When we return to the U.S. from Europe, we get into the passport control "express line" for U.S. citizens.
