    Definitely keep it! Toy Story Mania is more fun, but Buzz belongs in Tomorrowland as does the ride.

    "Stitch's Escape", however.. needs to go. Great technology but that type of experience is too scary for any child, and looks more like something that Universal would have come up with. It was a stretch to put something like that in Tomorrowland.

    Keep it for certain!!

    Stitch kind of reminds me of that show in Epcot with the kid who had digestive issues and the SNL body builders were in it....I can't remember the name to save me....but overall I wouldn't be sad if Stitch went away!
    It's FALL?!? Already?!?!

    It is a keeper. It is cute, light hearted and have never had a bad experience.

    So many others I'd chop long before Buzz.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    The basic concepts are the same, but the thing that sets Buzz apart from TSM is that you are shooting at actual animatronics rather than a screen. Somehow I find this appealing. That said, I think Buzz could benefit from an overhaul of it's operating system - the Anaheim version is much better than Orlando's because every target actually lights up when you hit it in addition to making an occasional shooting gallery type animatronic motion, and this makes it much easier to tell if your doing well.
    Here you leave today and enter the world of yesterday, tomorrow, and fantasy.

    Yes, keep it.

    It's great to have a black-light, cut-out ride. It's like a space Toad.

    Buzz is a keeper. Yes, it needs updating. Some lasers aren't functioning properly. How else could I beat my husband? Adding a scope to the laser would be a plus. My daughter loves this ride.

    I have not yet done TSM...will have to put that on my to do list.

    As far as stitch... I love Stitch, but my daughter (5) was terrified of the ride, while my son (9) was laughing his head off with Stitch belching chili dogs. That was awful.

    I do have to say that this is much better that the alien encounter ride which even scared me.
    stitch belongs in Tomorrowland, but I thing the ride could be redone in some manner that's appealing to all. I would also like to see him on the Rocket Tower stage in the Elvis costume...

    I have pictures of me and my family from age 10 to most recent family trip (09) at 18 on this ride. It's a must at the end of the day for us! We love at the end of the night getting off then racing to get back on line to do it all over again.
