Constellations boutique now the only exit from Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast

Tuesday, 1st March 2011 at 17:39

If you’re familiar with the exit of Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast in Discoveryland, the photo above will probably bring a smirk to your face — at least, until you next try to leave the attraction and are one of those to be funnelled through gift shop Constellations instead. The 2006 attraction originally gave visitors a choice of whether to enter the store (to the left of this photo) similar to other “exit boutiques” at Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster starring Aerosmith and Star Tours, where the shop is located off to one side of the exit to prevent a bottle-neck. Now, the exit area has now been blocked off with some quite hefty barriers, as Star Command force everyone to exit via the gift shop.

Previously, this open covered area often had its own portable cash desk and merchandise stalls. Past attempts to encourage more guests into the store itself can be seen above with the not-so-subtle arrows across the floor. The resort’s newest attraction/shop combo, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, already requires everyone to leave via Tower Hotel Gifts.

    DLP’s problem cant be not having enouh feet in shops. The problem is no-one is buying anything because there’s no variety. We’ve seen it, bought it twice already and went don’t want it again DLP.

    Our family has been Dream ticket holders for some 8 years now. Love the place, but there is only so many buzz light years you can buy at Disneyland Paris Prices, they are 25-50% cheaper in the UK from Tesco, where children being children, they get broken, whether you buy them at Disneyland Paris, the Disney store or Tesco. Something new and different would be great.

  • I was there last week, and there is a handle on the fence panel nearest the ride which opens it without going into the shop.
