Tokyo Disneyland has announced that Buzz Lightyear’s Astro Blasters will close ahead of a Wreck-it Ralph retheme.

This has been revealed as the next phase of Tokyo Disneyland’s Tomorrowland makeover, following Space Mountain’s reimagining. Although an exact date is yet to be revealed, along with the ride's official name, the new attraction will debut sometime in 2026.

A Sweet Retheme

The new attraction will be based around the candy-themed game “Sugar Rush,” which is under attack by Sugar Bugs, a series of glitches sent by King Candy. Guests will team up with Ralph and Vanellope and be tasked with transforming the Sugar Bugs back into sweet treats like cookies and candy.

Buzz Lightyear’s Astro Blasters is an indoor interactive experience that sees riders board a space cruiser and blast aliens with a laser shooter. The ride system will remain largely the same in the Wreck-it Ralph attraction, though the new overlay will add a futuristic touch to the older attraction – similar to Ant-Man and The Wasp: Nano Battle at Hong Kong Disneyland.

The interior of the Planet M shop will also be renovated.

The nearby merchandise shop Planet M, which is themed to Toy Story’s aliens will also be getting a retheme as part of the Tomorrowland renovation and will close with Buzz Lightyear’s Astro Blasters. Concept art shows 

Buzz Lightyear’s Astro Blasters will close in October 2024 in preparation for the Wreck-it Ralph ride to reopen in 2026.
