Get ready to initiate power transfer in 3…2…1… when the classic Space Mountain returns to Disneyland park June 1! Just days after we mark the 40th anniversary of this Tomorrowland favorite, space travelers will blast off once again for their intergalactic adventure.

A variation of a concept Walt Disney developed in the 1960s, Space Mountain first opened at Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort in 1975, and construction on Space Mountain at Disneyland park began soon after. The attraction went on to become a guest favorite, seeing special themed versions such as Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy and Hyperspace Mountain.

You are clear for launch starting June 1 with the return of Space Mountain at Disneyland park!


  • Oh if they would only bring back the Hoobastank version!!! ok just kidding. Thank you Disney, while I do like the Hyperspace overlay. The more classic version if the best. I have asked CM for so long when when. Now, my dream has come true!

  • May I add my “vote” for the Dick Dale soundtrack? Yeah, I know it wasn’t on the original but it fit in so well!
