Buzz Lightyear’s Astro Blasters is closing forever at Tokyo Disneyland as a dramatic reimagining of Tomorrowland continues in phases.

In 2026, a Wreck-It Ralph shooting attraction will replace Buzz Lightyear’s Astro Blasters. To make way for this new version of the ride, Buzz Lightyear will close in October 2024. The adjacent Planet M store will also be renovated and rethemed.

The technology in the attraction will be updated, as seen in the concept art above. These new blasters and vehicles resemble those in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Nano Battle at Hong Kong Disneyland, a ride that also replaced Buzz Lightyear’s Astro Blasters. A similar new shooting-ride-system is in place for the Buzz Lightyear Planet Rescue attraction at Shanghai Disneyland as well.

In the new attraction, guests will team up with Vanelope and Ralph for an adventure in the game world. Riders will help save the world of the racing video game “Sugar Rush”, which is about to be destroyed by the bugs created by King Candy. Working together, players will return the sugar bugs to the original, cute sweets such as cookies and cakes.

The above concept art shows how the building will be transformed on the exterior, matching the new Tomorrowland aesthetic introduced with The Happy Ride with Baymax and The Big Pop, which will continue here in 2026 and with the brand new Space Mountain in 2027.

The Planet M store, which is currently mostly themed to the Little Green Men from Toy Story, with some appearances by classic Disney characters, will take on a digital world theme.

While never announced, a Wreck-It Ralph attraction was planned for Tomorrowland at the Magic Kingdom.
