Young Adventurers – Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin

Another new segment, yeah! This one is something near and dear to my heart. As a preschool teacher and Disney fanatic I have found the lack of material for children going to the parks disheartening. Yes, there are guidebooks about Disney with Children, but those are mostly for the parents taking their children, not the kids themselves. The only real guides specifically for kids are the extraordinary set of Guide to the Magic books by Tim Foster.

This segment is my take on attraction synopsizes. It is not the typical “dark ride, may scare small children, omnimover, opened with Epcot on October 1, 1982, yadda, yadda, yadda.” No, it is specifically and exclusive a description of the attraction’s adventure that your children really want to know about. So without further ado, kids (and adult type kids) grab your gear and let’s find an adventure.

Alright Recruit, listen up! Emperor Zurg is stealing crystollic fusion cells (batteries) from the little green aliens in an attempt to power his ultimate weapon of destruction. You are being assigned a XP-37, fully equipped with the latest in laser cannon technology, which is being prepared for you as we speak. Your mission is to fly deep into enemy territory, infiltrate Zurg’s headquarters, and end his reign of terror. Zurg’s thugs have a single weak point, Zurg’s giant Z. Navigate smart, and take careful aim with your laser cannons, and, should you come face-to-face with Zurg himself, even he should be no match for you. And remember Recruit, how well you do on this mission, may very well make or break your career with Star Command, good luck. To Infinity and Beyond!
