15 years ago, on May 31st 1995, Space Mountain was opening at Disneyland Paris. Tim Delaney and all the Imagineers who worked on the project did a fantastic job and the Grand Opening was memorable. I remember it well as i was there and guests stars from all over Europe and the U.S were invited. Buzz Aldrin was there, lot of french actors of course, but what DLP guests were awaiting the most was the arrival of David Copperfield and Claudia Shiffer. David and Claudia had a love affair at that time and i still remember their arrival on the red carpet, walking up Main Street to Discoveryland. Boy, DLP guests just became hysterical when they appeared!
The Grand Opening show was fantastic and lucky you, you're going to be able to discover it with this very rare video that DLP just put on line this morning! In addition, the beautiful Space Mountain picture above is in full high-res. Enjoy.
