Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin at Disney World
Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin is an interactive slow-moving dark ride. Guests have the opportunity to accumulate points while shooting at a variety of targets.
Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin is reminiscent of Toy Story 2, featuring our favorite intergalactic here, Buzz Lightyear. This is the film where he faces his enemy, the evil Emperor Zurg.
While this attraction is similar to Toy Story Mania at Hollywood Studios, there are no 3D elements. Each ride vehicle seats two passengers with blasters. You’ll use the blaster to aim at targets and score points.
For scoring points, my best tip is to locate the red laser from your blaster on the targets ahead of you. If you can focus on your laser, you’ll do much better aiming at your target.
Additionally, this attraction has an on-ride photo opportunity. It’s about three-quarters of the way through the attraction.
This photo-op is where those with a competitive nature will have a face of concentration as they try to add more points to their score.
What do these points get you? Well, bragging rights.
But if you reach the maximum score of 999,999, snap a photo with your mobile device. Then, show the image to the cast member in the shop at the end of the ride.
They will award you with a Galactic Hero button. It’s kind of a big deal.
Wait times for this Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin are lowest during the early morning and late evening hours.
Additionally, this attraction offers a Lightning Lane option for those who purchase the upgrade.
Know Your Disney Rules When Riding With Children: Any child under the age of seven or younger must be accompanied by an adult fourteen years or older.
