Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin at Magic Kingdom

As one of the first fully computer-animated films to ever be released, Toy Story along with its main characters Woody and Buzz Lightyear captured the imagination of a generation.

Setting the standard for countless future animated children’s films, it’s only fitting that Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin has found its place in Disney World’s Tomorrowland.

Opened in 1998, it is both a ride and interactive experienced based off of Toy Story 2.

Aimed at children of all ages, it combines a traditional motion ride and video game elements to create a unique experience for the whole family to enjoy.

Upon entering the ride’s queue, you’re quickly thrust into the world of Toy Story.

Everything has been carefully constructed to give you the illusion that you are the size of an action figure.

XP-37 Space Cruisers

The ride begins as you climb into one of the ride’s XP-37 space cruisers and your children become junior space cadets.

Following Toy Story 2, you and your family have been recruited to help Buzz Lightyear prevent the Evil Emperor Zurg from stealing crystallic fusion cells.

As it is suited for younger children, the ride moves slowly and gently down its tracks and you are plunged deeper into the world of toys.

Like many similar rides at Disney World, your environment is mostly dark, but is highlighted by imagery from the source film.

Using a mix of glowing colors and animatronics, you’ll encounter Emperor Zurg and his army of little green men along with interpretations of several scenes from Toy Story 2.

After traversing the elaborate set and receiving an ominous warning from Zurg himself, the second part of the ride begins.

The second half of the ride is an interactive segment.

Blast Gun

Each seat in the XP-37 space cruiser is equipped with a blast gun.

As your space cruiser enters an escape hatch and finally reaches outer space, each space cadet will be in charge of blasting away enemy space ships.

As you hit each target, different sound effects are triggered.

The entire system is carried out through a moving screen, which gives you the illusion that your space cruiser is hurtling through the stars.

The ride keeps count of each space cadet’s score and tallies everything up at the end of the ride.

Depending on your score, you can reach different levels of achievement including Space Ace, Planetary Pilot, Space Scout, Cosmic Commando and Galactic Hero.

Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin has been voted as one of the best rides for small children at Disney World and offers entertainment for the whole family.

The ride lasts about 5 minutes and utilizes many sights and sounds straight from
Toy Story 2.

Adults will appreciate the attraction’s family-friendly atmosphere and kids will be enthralled with the glowing scenery and interactive video-game segment.

At the end of each ride, participants have the option of emailing a photo of themselves along with their score to family or friends to commemorate the experience.
