June 30, 2001 – Club Buzz – Lightyear’s Above the Rest Opens in Disneyland
“To infinity, and beyond!”
On June 30, 2001, the outdoor stage area Club Buzz – Lightyear’s Above the Rest opened in Disneyland’s Tomorrowland. Formerly Tomorrowland Terrace, the area was renamed and redone to feature a stage show and dance party featuring Buzz Lightyear from the Toy Story franchise. The live show featured Buzz fighting his nemesis Emperor Zurg. The area closed in 2006, becoming Tomorrowland Terrace once again, and being used as a training ground for the Jedi Training Academy.
