On June 1, 1995, Space Mountain began launching passengers from the Earth to the Moon at Disneyland Paris, and it’s been thrilling our Discoveryland guests for 25 years!

In celebration of this anniversary, we assembled a panel of Imagineers – Luc Mayrand, Ann Morrow Johnson, Yves Ben Yeta and myself – to share personal stories, insights on the creative process behind the attraction, its innovation and evolution, and what makes Space Mountain so inspiring to us and millions around the world.

We hope you enjoy this virtual panel!


  • The part about Tom’s mom, The Thrill Seeker, made me smile. I have visited Disneyland many times, but never had the chance to visit any of the other parks. I would love to see Disneyland Paris one day! Thanks for this fun interview.
