This find is the funniest hidden, bizarre joke that I’ve seen at Disneyland Paris. All credit to the find has to go to Joost at DisneyGraphy.com. It is such a strange find that you would only spot this if you really knew what you were looking for. This site is all about sharing and sharing with you that knowledge.
When you descend down into the loading station on Space Mountain. Just before you go down the stairs look behind you at the Baltimore Gun Club logo. In the center is a large cannon and a banner with a slogan across the bottom. The Slogan reads “AD LUNA IN FLATULA GLORIA”.
Nothing too strange until you realise that the slogan is wrong. The correct quote from Jules Vernes novel should read “ad luna in FLAMA gloria”. The correct version is latin for “To the moon in a blaze of glory”. A truly heroic tag line.
Unfortunately Flatula isn’t latin for anything. The urban dictionary does however have some definitions.
according to the Urban Dictionary:
- An anatomical structure specific to colon-dwelling bacteria, which allows it to propel itself by ejecting methane at high velocities.
- A gassy vampire.
So the new slogan literally translated means “To the moon in a fart of glory!”
