The attraction originally opened as Space Mountain: De la Terre a la Lune in the Discoveryland area of the park June 1, 1995. It was re-imagined in time for the attraction’s tenth anniversary in 2005, reopening as Space Mountain: Mission 2, complete with enhanced special effects and a new soundtrack.
The attraction at Disneyland Paris was the fourth of five Space Mountain attractions to open at Disney theme parks around the world. The first debuted at Magic Kingdom Park in 1975, then Disneyland in 1977, and Tokyo Disneyland in 1983. Hong Kong Disneyland has since added a Space Mountain in September 2005.
