Beginning October 2nd Stitch’s Great Escape, will begin seasonal operation. This means that the attraction will only be operating as needed to help alleviate crowds in the Tomorrowland area. The last day of normal operation will be October 1st.
According to the official Walt Disney World website, Stitch’s Great Escape will be open Nov. 19-26 and Dec. 17-Jan. 2. After the New Years rush it’s hard to say what the fate of the attraction will be.
It had been rumored that Disney may have plans to completely shut down Stitch’s Great Escape and replace it with a Wreck it Ralph themed attraction.
Stitch’s Great Escape has not been a crowd favorite. TripAdvisor users have rated the attraction with 2/5 stars. One mother wrote:
“This ride is TERRIBLE. It makes no sense, it can scare small children who think it will be cute with Stitch, and it just doesn’t feel like Disney put any love into it.”
Disney has yet to provide a reason for the attraction’s limited availability. We’ll be sure to update this post as information becomes available.
