    Can a baby a year old ride Buzzlightyear ?

    Hi Valeria!

    Thanks for your question. I'm a huge fan of Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin at Disney's Magic Kingdom, although I am terrible when it comes to getting points. Whoever I partner with on the ride always seem to beat me in the points arena. I literally think I'm 0 wins, 1,000 losses in this area. :-) And yet I still love it because it's so cool!

    So Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin is an any height, any age attraction. The ride is very slow moving, but there are periodic spins going left or right depending on location within the Gamma Quadrant. From personal experience, I took my son on this ride when he was 18 months old, and he was barely tall enough to see above the ride itself. There were obviously cool Toy Story themed elements throughout the ride, but beyond watching all the cool space colors (as well as seeing Buzz Lightyear and Zurg), there wasn't really much there for him. He was too small and certainly wasn't trying to shoot for points. There are also small periods of darkness, so I don't know if that would be an issue for your child (my son was totally not OK with the darkness).

    In the end, it will be your call. Your baby can certainly get on and if nothing else, Mom is going to have a ton of fun here! :-)

    Have a magical day!
