Stitch's Great Escape (Seasonal)
Guests are recruited by the Grand Councilwoman, Captain Gantu, and Pleakley to guard “Experiment 626” (Stitch), and mischief ensues when that wily captive escapes into the theater. Even Skippy, from this attraction’s previous incarnation, has a part. Animation, Audio-Animatronics, surround sound, lighting, and tactile effects combine to make an immersive experience. Alas, restrictive shoulder restraints, periods of total darkness, and a barrage of fire from “laser cannon” leave Stitch with too many scare factors and too little charm. Outdoor, covered queue. 40”/102 cm minimum height. Handheld captioning. Assistive listening. Wheelchair and ECV accessible. Allie’s TweenTip: “I love it when the power goes out!” Note: This attraction is open seasonally as of October 2016. Rumor has it that it could be closed permenantly now and could possibly be replaced by a Wreck-It Ralph attraction.Get a full copy of PassPorter's Walt Disney World guidebook here.
Ages: Ages 7 & up
Thrill Factor: May be scary for the young, yucky smells!
Show Duration: 12 min.
- Seating type: high bar
PassPorter's Ratings for Stitch's Great Escape (Seasonal)
Author Jennifer Marx's Rating:
Appeal by Age:
I have to start out by saying this is my 9 year old's favorite ride. I love his reaction to it so I am sentimental about it. Stitch is his favorite character. It is silly, and a bit long. The chili dog stench is gross. We always are making references to lines from this ride. I can see how it isn't for everyone. I love how mischievous Stitch is.

No. Just no.

BORING. I only go for my son, cause Stitch is his favorite.

A little dated; don't pull the bar down all the way to your shoulders or you will wish you hadn't

Though I know I'm usually in a minority I do enjoy this attraction. Probably not a good idea for very young children or those easily scared or scared of the dark. I do love Stitch, too.
TomiRocket gave this a rating of 7 on 06/24/2016 at 12:06:21 pm EDT
I think this was so much better as the alien encounter. My son and I decided we would give it a try despite the bad press. We realized we only needed to try it out once and we're good now. It really does nothing for me and there are so many other ideas for a stitch ride! Unless you're bored, or you LOVE stitch you can avoid it.

I have no desire to ride this ride again. Don't bother with it.

Might be the winner of what to skip at WDW. Too claustrophobic, smells bad, might scare small children. Overall, it's terrible.

I did not really get this attraction. We went on it one time and will never waste our time again. I can't believe that anyone would like this ride.

Not great for small children
gances gave this a rating of 3 on 06/15/2016 at 10:30:15 am EDT
This ride was great when it was Alien Encounter but it was too scary for children....They dumbed it down with Stitch because parents weren't listening to the warnings that it is very scary for young kids. I admit I was scared the first time I went on this ride because it is very well done and your imagination takes over. Definitely have to give Disney credit for being so creative and creating a unique original ride. If you don't scare to easily then it is a must at least once.
ARanat gave this a rating of 7 on 06/14/2016 at 4:10:19 pm EDT
I gave this a 4 because my son liked it (age 5). However I do not recommend this for people with claustrophobia or anxiety. I did not like the restraints at all. I won't ever do this again.
EvaKi gave this a rating of 4 on 06/14/2016 at 11:09:07 am EDT
Probably my least favorite ride in all of WDW.

Too claustrophobic once they bring down the shoulder restraints. I will never ride this again.
Wintersong gave this a rating of 1 on 06/10/2016 at 11:52:14 pm EDT
I sorely miss Alien Encounter who used to occupy this space. Every time I walk by Stitch my moral goes down a few degrees thinking what a shame it is to have lost such great attraction.
CaptainSpalding gave this a rating of 6 on 06/10/2016 at 7:54:47 pm EDT
As much as I want to love the "ride", I can't. It just seems silly and if they would update it or somehow give it love, it could be awesome. The idea behind it is pretty cool, but somehow the execution stinks.

It's cute, but not on my must-do-list. We will do this one when killing time for Space Mountain. Was chatting with an Imagineer a few years back and he admitted that he would like to re-do this one.

I was able to go on this during the passholder preview and go back every time. I just wish Disney would fix the seats and effects. And Stitch is looking a little frayed around the seams.

Restraints push down too hard, very dark, & Disney needs to come up with something new, or just shut this down.
