The rumours of last month have been confirmed, so now we know exactly what the Star Wars Season of the Force will include. But the rumours have kept coming, and they could spell the end of 'Buzz Lightyear's Laser Blast' as we know it at Disneyland Paris.
This month, Imagineers have been seen inspecting the facade of 'Buzz Lightyear’s Laser Blast' in Discoveryland. Initial speculation suggested that maybe some more Star Wars would be coming to Discoveryland, but with recent confirmation that the Disneyland Park won’t be part of the Season of the Force, this now seems unlikely. If you’re really craving for Star Wars, then it is still possible that Buzz Lightyear could be re-themed to Star Wars later, given that a blaster attraction and the Star Wars IP would fit like a hand in a glove!
Otherwise, suggestions have been that maybe they want to make the facade of the attraction look less, well, tacky. Personally, I think it’s a bit too plastic looking, and could do with a colour scheme more similar to that of Autopia and Space Mountain. Many would say that the massive Buzz Lightyear should also be taken down. Discoveryland is getting good treatment as part of the Experience Enhancement Programme, with Star Tours and the entrance to the land from the main plaza being refurbished as I write this – but if they want to refurbish the Buzz Lightyear facade by summer 2017, they need to crack on with it!
