Facts

For Space Mountain's 10th anniversary in 2005, it was renovated featuring a new story, new effects and a new soundtrack. The trains were redone in metallic silver. The overall Verne / Orwell theme in Discoveryland along with the Canon Columbiad Space Mountain building stayed the same.
For the park's 25th Anniversary in 2017, the trains were replaced with new style Vekoma trains.

Etymology

"De la terre à la lune" is French for "from the Earth to the Moon".

Theme

Prior to 2017, the theme was based on Jules Verne's "A Voyage to the Moon and a Trip Around It". In the story, the astronauts are launched from Earth by a giant canon.
The 2017 renovations changed the theme to one with a Star Wars based story.
