Buzz Lightyear

Buzz Lightyear in Disneyland is themed and named from the Toy Story character. Buzz Lightyear operates on a third generation omnimover technology where riders can control the ride vehicle by spinning in circles and shooting targets with a laser gun. The ride is a fun interactive ride where users are competing against others for high scores. It is good example of how Disney can merge older dark ride feel with new technology to create a fun experience for all ages. The use of character and story taken from the movie series is one that riders will identify with immediately even in the rides line before the ride has even begun. Another interactive part of Buzz Lightyear is that the rider can create their own user name for the day. High scores are kept for the day as well as all time high scores. Buzz Lightyear opened Disneyland in 2005. The wait to get on the ride can be long or short. It depends on when you go and time of day. We have seen zero wait time and lines up to over an hour on comparable days of park visitor counts.
