So the Eurostar is unlike all other European trains and almost like an airplane : X-Ray + French passport controls. The terminal is quite small and crowded in the mornings so there's no need to come hours in advance. 45 min-1h before would be my advice. Don't worry if there's a big queue when you arrive they process people quickly. :)

There's a 09:31 departure so I'd recommend 8:30-8:45.
