Photo Flashback ~ E-night & Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin

It's Photo Flashback Friday!  
Time to once again dig through our old Disney pictures for a photo flashback. Today's picture is of my son and husband riding Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin when it first opened. I always like this picture because it's such a candid shot. The other thing that makes this a memorable photo for me is that it was during the first E-night in the Magic Kingdom. We had the Magic Kingdom almost all to ourselves that night. I'll post more pictures from that great E-night experience when I find them! Someone has absconded with the pictures! Kids!!

A Few Fun Facts & Factoids:

  • Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin soft opening date was, October 7, 1998. The official opening date was November 3, 1998.
  • The official Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin sponsor is Mattel.
  • Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin, opened in the old If You Had Wings  ride building. 
  • "If You Had Wings" was  sponsored by Eastern Airlines from 6/5/72 through 6/1/87. From 6/6/87 through 1/3/89, it was named "If You Could Fly".
  • Delta Dreamflight replaced "If You Could Fly" on 6/6/89 and was sponsored by Delta Air Lines.
  • After Delta ended its sponsorship (they were busy then sponsoring the Olympics) on 1/1/96 it was renamed "Take Flight". 
  • On 1/5/98 "Take Flight" closed to be replaced by Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin.
  • You can still spot Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin during the TTA ride and vice versa.
