    Or they might just pull an EPCOT and let it just sit vacant like the Wonders of Life pavillion. They could say they can't find a sponsor.

    The area was already used for meet-and-greets before the show came out (Buzz and Stitch meet in the area).

    Buzz and Stitch were usually more over in the CoP area under a bit of shade.

    Oh I know (I've worked with both of them). But it isn't likely they will have characters meeting in front of the stage (it's pretty impractical).

    Buzz meet and greet is likely moving to in front of the entrance to the old Galaxy Palace theater.
    DisneyDaddy: Buzz Lightyear meet and greet area to be updated and maybe moved

    From MousePlanet:

    Stitch getting the boot, not a tune-up

    Last week, we reported about rapidly spreading rumors of the pending closure of Stitch's SuperSonic Celebration for retooling. Amazingly, it appears that rather than tweaking the show and rebooting it, Disney is pulling the show outright. The last performance will be this coming Saturday, June 27.
    It's unusual that Disney would cut a show so quickly after spending so much time and money preparing for it, including the construction of a huge stage and tech booth in the open space just past Rockettower Plaza in Tomorrowland. Perhaps by making a clean break on Saturday, they will be able to show savings for the company's fourth fiscal quarter, which starts the next day.
    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.

    Re: Stitch's Supersonic Celebration... Done

    I like Stitch but im not a huge fan. Unfortunately, i never got to see the show but i saw pictures online and it didn't look that great. I think that Stitch was not the way to go for a new attraction in Tomorrowland. I would love to maybe see something with Wall-E in Tomorrowland.
    I hope we never lose sight of one thing,
    that it was all started by a mouse.

    Re: Stitch's Supersonic Celebration... Done

    I totally agree with you. There are so many better options in the disney catalog than another stitch attraction. Meet the Robinsons, Wall-E, or perhaps a throwback concept...base an attraction on a cool concept and leave the characters out of it! Tomorrowland, more than any other land, had less character presence and some great attractions back in the day. just a thought

    That's more than just a thought, those are good ideas.

    Re: Stitch's Supersonic Celebration... Done

    MrIncredible is a refreshing voice of reason in an era of attractions gone mad. Do we dare think about what the imagineers are doing to the wedway people mover right now? Even worse, what charachters could they be adding to space mountain? Well muppets in space would be ok, but that might be selfish of me because i am a HUGE Frank Oz fan. Sometimes I wish there was an avenue for fans like us to give input to the imagineers. I have notebooks full of original concepts that I think could work.

    Re: Stitch's Supersonic Celebration... Done

    I've heard about this, and I can't tell you I'm surprised. I saw the videos of Stitch's Supersonic Celebration, and it didn't seem imaginative enough. I think this should be more of a sign than any that Stitch is suffering from overexposure, and that he's being forced onto guests way too hard. I'm not trying to start any Stitch-bashing here, nor do I want to, but these are just my observations about it.
    Keep it cool, and keep moving forward!

    Re: Stitch's Supersonic Celebration... Done

    Not to promote another podcast or anything, but the guys at WDWToday did a segment about Stitch recently, and I think one of their guests hit it on the head. Disney has positioned Stitch incorrectly. Disney is pushing the gross, mischevious Stitch instead of the family-loving and playful Stitch, which is what made the movies so appealing (and surprisingly so to Disney -- they thought Stitch wouldn't catch on).

    I understand Stitch is a boy-oriented character, but the gross-factor gets old fast (think Great Escape). Personally, Great Escape and Alien Encounter were bad ideas. Alien Encounter might fit at DHS, but it doesn't fit in the MK. Stitch just took it from bad to worse.

    Re: Stitch's Supersonic Celebration... Done

    I think the problem with Stitch's great escape is that it's just jerry-rigged solution to something that didn't work the first time. Stitch is a retrofit of Alien Encounter, so essentially they took something that was considered a bad idea and swapped out a few parts in it instead of actually engineering something new. The original premise wasn't great, so how could a re-hash of a bad idea be any better? Plus stitch is annoying.
