I saw this and had to come on at 3:15am to comment since I am a huge fan of both Buzz and Toy Story Mania. Buzz Lightyear came 10 years before Toy Story Mania, so you can't really have a justifiable argument for getting rid of it because it is similar to Toy Story Mania since when Buzz opened it had nothing similar (well, at least I'm pretty sure it didn't) to live up to. Every time I've seen it, it has a consistent wait time...it is definitely a keeper...of course Toy Story Mania is more advanced in technology and stuff, but Buzz has become somewhat of a staple to Tomorrowland...they're still both unique rides...I see where you are coming from on this perspective, but just keep in mind that Buzz came first by a long shot...but I do like Toy Story Mania better as well
To answer your question: Keep Buzz Light Year's Space Ranger Spin, definitely

What!?! Get rid of it? No way! Our family loves the ride. I'm getting a little sad to think that as my son gets bigger my wife, son and I won't be able to ride Buzz all in the same car. They like to play the game and I spin them the whole time. LOL.
Keep it but perhaps refresh it with some technology in the near future.
I would like them to keep it. It's a favourite on our trip and no visit to the park is complete without me and hubby getting all competitive about who will get the most points. I agree with some of the above comments though; it would be cool if they could update it in places with a bit of new technology, just to keep guests interested who have done it a dozen times already.

Keep it! I like it better than Midway Mania. There's actual prop targets not just a screen.

I would suggest making the guns fully automatic... and making the beams (the dot you see) larger. It can be difficult to see where you're hitting at times.
But fully automatic would be amazing.
I'd love if they had guns that weren't mounted on the cars and the cars could spin a little bit faster.
Yeah there should probably be some updates to the ride in the near future but its definitely worth keeping.
