Multi city travel- which ticket option and advice?

Our party of 2A/2Senior/2C (12 & 7) plan to travel London to Disneyland Paris, then a few days later Paris-Barcelona and a week later, Dover to London St. Pancras. All during July. What would our best ticket option be? Eurail Global, Select or individual tickets?

Our plane lands at LHR at 6:50 a.m. Would there be enough time to get to St. Pancras to catch the 10:14 Eurostar or should we plan to take the 11:00 Eurostar that goes through Lille?

Thanks very much!

      To get from Heathrow into London, you would take the Heathrow Express. The Heathrow Express arrives into the Paddington station, so you would still have to commute from there to the St Pancras station.

      The Heathrow Express departs once every 15 minutes throughout the day. The ride to Paddington takes about 15 minutes from terminals 1, 2 and 3, and 23 minutes from terminal 5.

      To get from Paddington to St Pancras, you can take the Circle Line of the Tube. The Tube ride between Paddington and St Pancras takes 15 minutes. For the Tube, you would pay to board locally.

      You also want to keep in mind that the Eurostar requires passengers to check-in 30 minutes before departure.

      At the airport itself, the time it takes to get from the gate to the Heathrow Express platforms can depend on several factors. I would just recommend allowing a time that is comparable to the amount of time it would take for you to walk through a typical major North American airport and retrieve luggage. It is also recommended that you allow an additional hour to get through customs if your flight is arriving from overseas.

      You would want to keep all this in mind when choosing your departure time from London to Paris.
