Walt Disney World is a great place for fans of Toy Story right now. The most popular area to celebrate Andy’s pals is in Hollywood Studios’ Toy Story Land. However, long before we ever got on Slinky Dog Dash or ate lunch in Woody’s Lunch Box, we journeyed into space with Buzz at the Magic Kingdom. Located in Tomorrowland, the ride is a great choice for all ages. It’s interactive as you fire a laser gun to earn points throughout the ride. The Space Ranger Spin is a dark ride with glow-in-the-dark elements. It’s an exciting ride that doesn’t rely on speed or drops to give you a rush!

Here is part of the official description for the ride, according to Disney: “Buzz Lightyear’s arch-nemesis from Toy Story 2 is stealing batteries from helpless toys to power a new weapon of destruction. Become a Junior Space Ranger and help stop Zurg! … Do you have what it takes to stop Zurg and his rampaging robot army before it’s too late? The fate of the universe is in your hands!”
