PHOTOS, VIDEO: Buzz Lightyear Face Character Now Appearing in Tomorrowland at Disneyland

Buzz Lightyear, as he is depicted in “Lightyear,” is now greeting guests in Tomorrowland at Disneyland. He can be found periodically outside Galactic Grill, in front of the Tomorrowland Terrace stage.

He was accompanied by a PhotoPass photographer.

Buzz usually appears in Disney Parks in a full suit with a molded face, looking more like a giant toy. This version of Buzz is a “face character” with nothing covering his head.

His spacesuit looks more realistic rather than cartoon-ish.

The costume also doesn’t have the classic purple and green accents from the “Toy Story” films — though Buzz does wear a suit with those colors in “Lightyear.” This suit is white with grey-blue accents.

Buzz has a panel on his chest with buttons, a dial, and the Star Command logo. His name is also printed on the panel like a nametag.

Watch our video of Buzz Lightyear below.

A building in the new “Lightyear” film resembles Space Mountain and it’s rumored the Tomorrowland attraction could get a permanent “Lightyear” update. If that happens, this version of Buzz could become a mainstay for the land.

  1. Hmmm…. I wonder what would happen if there was a moment where both the face and costumed versions met…. someone should ask Disney about this. Also yoy didn’t bring up that it was the suit from the beginning of the film.

  2. You can tell the economy is bad when even Disney Park characters look like they came from dollar tree.

    1. Right the economy is bad? Have you been to any of the parks this year? I’ve been to both coasts. They’re full of people paying hundreds to get in the gates and thousands $ to stay at the Disney hotels.

  3. I’m not mad about this! Looks great, like the film not the cartoon. People get upset about the strangest things lately!
