Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin


Join Buzz Lightyear – one of the beloved characters from Disney’s classic movie, Toy Story, as a “Junior Space Ranger” and help pilot your Star Cruiser through the galaxy – zapping aliens along the way – on an important mission to save the toy universe from the evil Emperor Zurg . . . “To Infinity and Beyond!”

A very popular interactive ride at Disney’s Magic Kingdom Park, Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin is located in Tomorrowland directly across from Astro Orbiter. Space Rangers earn points by zapping alien-like creatures (Z-shaped targets) during the ride, which takes approximately 4½ minutes and provides Space Rangers with their own controls to spin the Star Cruiser 360 degrees.

Each Space Ranger can consult the chart at the end of the ride to discover his or her rank – 1,000 to 9,999 points (Space Cadet), 10,000 to 99,999 points (Space Scout), 100,000 to 199,999 points (Space Ranger 1 st Class), 200,000 to 299,999 points (Planetary Pilot), 300,000 to 599,999 points (Space Ace), 600,000 to 899,999 points (Cosmic Commando) and 900,000 to 999,999 points (Galactic Hero). Remember, the higher and farther the target lies from your Star Cruiser, the more points you will earn during the Space Ranger Spin. Moving targets are also worth more points. Souvenir photos of your space adventure are available for purchase at the end of the ride.

Dining opportunities near Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin include The Lunching Pad, which serves sandwiches, snacks and ice-cold refreshments. For souvenirs of your visit to Tomorrowland, check out the nearby Merchant of Venus and Mickey’s Star Traders.

Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin was opened in 1998 on the former site of If You Had Wings (which was later known as Dreamflight and Take Flight! before closing for good in 1996).

Note: FASTPASS is available for Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin, which has no height restrictions.
