Walt Disney World Resort’s Magic Kingdom is home to six different neighborhoods: Main Street, U.S.A., Adventureland, Frontierland, Liberty Square, Fantasyland, and of course, Tomorrowland.

Each neighborhood harbors different shops, eateries, and attractions all themed to the respective neighborhood’s aesthetic.

According to the My Disney Experience app, Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin is temporarily closed! But that doesn’t mean it’s time to panic!

An attraction like Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin has a lot of moving parts, and it’s not uncommon for something to malfunction, causing the attraction to close temporarily. We at Disney Dining do not doubt that this attraction will reopen before you know it.

UPDATE: At the time of this article’s publication, Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin is up and running again.
