As Walt Disney World prepares for its 50th anniversary celebration this October, Disney is working around the clock to ensure everything is in tip-top shape while also bringing new experiences to Disney fans — including reimagining rides such as Jungle Cruise located in Adventureland at Magic Kingdom Park. 

According to the official Walt Disney World website, one popular attraction in Tomorrowland will undergo a refurbishment for a short time this month.

Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin is a very popular ride in Tomorrowland, allowing Guests to score points and help Buzz Lightyear defeat the Evil Emperor Zurg. Starting July 20, Disney will temporarily close this attraction for a refurbishment. The good news is this refurbishment won’t last long as Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin will return on July 23.

Much like Toy Story Mania in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin is a competitive attraction and allows Guests to give it their best shot at an array of moving targets. Disneyland’s version, called Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters, also recently went under refurbishments after its yearly-long closure and made sure every laser gun and electronic dashboard were in perfect condition for Disney fans for its reopening.

Do you want to learn more about this dark ride made for all ages? Walt Disney World’s website describes this attraction as:

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!

Board your XP-37 star cruiser and voyage deep into the Gamma Quadrant, where you’ll take aim at the glowing “Z” targets with your infrared laser cannon. Use your cruiser’s joystick to spin a full 360 degrees, so you can blast all the targets in sight.

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!
