    Stitch's Great Escape Appriciation Society

    I realize that we seem to be in the minority here, but I know there's a few of us out there who love Stitch's Great Escape. I thought I could start a thread where people could tell what they love about it or just give positive thoughts about it, considering that there seems to be so much negativity about it. I didn't have any real love for Alien Encounter and I love Stitch, so I guess I was predisposed to enjoying it. I think most people wish they could be in their favorite movie & this gives people a chance to be in Lilo & Stitch for 30 minutes. If I turn out to be alone here, I'll never bring it up again. And I have to say, there's nothing like positioning your mother-in-law in the seat that Stitch is going to spit at.

    To be fair, I didn't get to thoroughly enjoy it because of some guy a few seats down who thought lighting up his cell phone in the dark was funny. So when I go back again in July, we're riding again. The kids thought it was great though, even with the annoying man.

    Stitch's Great Escape is one of my guilty pleasures....I love it. I love the movie, and him, and I love the ride. I didn't like Alien Encounter. honestly, it was too scary. It wasn't as enjoyable for everyone like Stitch is. And, while we're being honest...I have another confession to make. I may get kicked off the forum for this, but....
    I LIKED THE PINK BIRTHDAY CAKE CASTLE. There. I said it. I feel much better.

    Its kind of fun to do the impossible - W. Disney

    The caribbean, love...
    I love all things Stitch- and the WDW attraction is no exception! I love the ride! The animatronic Stitch is incredible and always a pleasure to see. I'd "ride" SGE all day if I could!

    Stitch is one of my top 3 favorite Disney characters, so to see him in his own DisneyWorld attraction is awesome! Sure, it was kinda sad to see Alien Encounter go, but it was a tad on the pee-your-pants frightening side. Now if only they'd add him to both parks...

    I love stitch (as you can tell by my name) and so maybe I'm partial, but the ride isn't as bad as a lot of people say. Sure it's a little silly but that's they way it was meant to be and it keeps well with the "personality" of the characters. I think a lot of people are bummed out because Alien Encounter was such a thrilling attraction that this version seems soooooo watered down. Besides that, the Stitch animatronic is one of the coolest things ever! I want to take it home with me everytime I'm there! So that's my two-cents anyhow...
