BREAKING: Stitch’s Great Escape Will Close Forever Next Month

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Having been on a seasonal operating schedule for quite a while now, Stitch’s Great Escape at the Magic Kingdom will be open again December 23, 2017 through January 6th, 2018. However, it will never open again following that.

Disney is expected to make the announcement shortly, but the final day of operation for the Tomorrowland attraction will be January 6th, 2018. The closure will make way for a new, yet-to-be-announced attraction.

Stitch’s Great Escape replaced the ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter in 2004, becoming one of the most poorly received attractions in the park’s history.

  • they kill Stich and KEEP hall of presidents???? that is the single worst attraction not Stitch. only go to HOP when I need a nap. Disney gets millions daily and they polled 120k?????

  • So glad it’s closing. It was great when it was the original ride. Now it’s just stupid. Unfortunately, people DIDN’T LISTEN. They were told it was too intense for young children but stupid parents drug them into the ride anyway. Then they had the nerve to complain.
