    Question Stitch's Great Escape?

    Could anyone just tell me some details on what "Stitch's Great Escape" is like? Last time I went to WDW in summer '04, it was still in the works. I'd rather know what happens at the attraction before even getting on it and getting scared the daylight out of me of not knowing. If anyone has the details about this attraction, I'd appreciate that. If you don't want the whole world to know, just send a private message. Thanks and have a great day!

    It is not all that it is hyped up to be. Did you ever get to ride Alien Encounter?

    Its worse than alien encounter in that it is very scared down. If u dont put ur head back, its like ur in a room that gets dark and a creature is seen then not seen. The preshow is kinda cute but thats it

    It isn't as "scary" as the Alien Encounter, but it is along the same lines as far as what and how things happen. Let's put it this way....we had FP's for it and when we went back later the line wasn't that long so we went right in, we never ended up using our FP's to see it again and do not plan on ever seeing it again. It is the only thing at WDW that I have no desire to ever do again. That being said....I feel that everyone should experience everything at least once and draw their own conclusion!

    So pretty much, it's not much different from Alien Encounter. He still comes around & so? I never have been on Alien Encounter, it's bad enough on "Honey! I Shrunk The Audience" attraction where the mice come out, but I can deal w/ that (I've always had the technique of tucking my legs in and putting the booksack in front me or just not going on the attraction at all if I can avoid it). Thanks to everyone who responded. I'll make sure to notify my family about it. THANKS!!!

    Hey I like Stitch Great Escape I will agree it is very scared down a lot. I think because it Stitch and not some creature coming around and scaring you half to death. But I liked it. The Stitch look so real it took my BF a few seconds to realize that there was no little person in a Stitch costume and that he was AA figure. But I say go judge for yourself you may or may not like it.

    I dont see what the Big Venom that everybody has against Stitch. Ailen Encounter was a great scary dark attraction. When i worked down there, i would go on it once or twice a week, just to see the reactions of the guests. I had a buddy that worked Tomorrowland attractions, but she usually worked Space Mtn. When she got the opportunity, she would work over there, and loved the gangway sequence, where you walk above the guests. I always wanted to do that...

    That being said, I like the new attraction. they certainly lessend the scare factor, and made it kind of cute. the Stitch AA is Awesome, IMHO the best AA on property. things change down there folks, we'd be upset if Disney didnt put in new and exciting things from time to time. they cant go and add new buildings to the parks everytime a new attraction is warranted, so things must go. Hey, I was ****** when Toad left Fantasyland... it was the first ride i ever remember going on, and i was hoping to put my kids on it some day (thank god he's still at Disneyland). but my kids will love Pooh's ride (in fact, i took my 16 month old this past Sept, and she loved it... she yelled "whee" the whole time.) the time may come 30 years from now when Pooh has to go to make way for soem other creature yet to be created, and folks will be ****** to see that one go...

    Treat Stitch like a new attraction, and you wont be dissapointed.


    oh, and BTW... they best be glad they didnt remove Skippy... I would have gone postal if they had. i am mad that they dont sell Skippy Merchandise anymore, anybody else?

    I have another question: Does Stitch come out and "touch" you? I know he spits on you (saw that on the WDW Christmas thanks to Kelly Ripa). I'm not against it, but I'm chicken when it comes to rides that have air "touching" you. Thanks!!

    No, stitch never "touches you" he might jump on your head (you can feel the shoulder bar thingie press on your shoulders) but that's it. Oh, & he burps, which is very disgusting!!!

    It's made so it feels like he's stepping on your shoulders trying to escape.( a very mild up& down of the shoulder restraints)
    The kids & I thought it was a pretty tame & mild attraction. The animatronic stitch is really, really good to watch though!
    Give it a try.
