One of the best things about visiting a Disney Park is getting to see beloved characters come to life.

Whether riding a themed attraction or experiencing a character meet-and-greet, seeing characters such as Buzz Lightyear brought to life can really make the magic of Disney real for Guests.

On Disneyland Paris’s official website, we can see a disclaimer that reads, “As part of our continuing efforts to exceed the expectations of our Guests, this attraction is closed today.”

But Inside the Magic has pointed out that this closure will last much longer than a single day. If the ride’s boarded-up state wasn’t enough to indicate an extended closure, Inside the Magic reports that Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast is scheduled to reopen on July 12.
