DISNEYLAND PARK

 

This is Discoveryland, where dreams of the future are as limitless as your imagination! From the classical visions of Verne to the modern-day missions of Buzz Lightyear, anything within the limits of possibility can - and will - be accomplished.

Map

The towering centrepiece of the land is Space Mountain: Mission 2, a new, reloaded adventure to the edge of the universe inspired by Jules Verne's unique vision of space travel. After being blasted out of the Columbiad cannon, you'll hurtle past the moon and hit the edge of the universe, where a spectacular Supernova explosion awaits.

Brand new in 2006, Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast still needs YOU for a code-red, interactive, emergency mission into the Gamma Quadrant! Pilot your own XP-41 Space Cruiser, as you journey to dark and mysterious planets to help save the universe from the threat of invasion by evil emperor Zurg and his army of battery-hungry robots.

Come back down to Earth (and then some), as you're shrunk to the size of a mouse in Honey, I Shrunk The Audience, or blast off again for a turbulent flight on Star Tours commercial airways, before taking a moment to relax in the enormous Videopolis Theatre, where The Legend Of The Lion King comes to life in a spectacular musical stage show, with inspirational music and high-tech special effects.

See the world from different angles; Save the universe with your own hands; Test the limits of imagination... Discoveryland: What one can conceive, one can achieve.
