  • Are you still rumoring about the wreck it Ralph attraction soon, maybe for celebrate wdw’s 50th years?

  • It is quite clear by now that they have absolutely no clue what to do with that space at WDW

    • How about a permanent Guardians of the Galaxy meet and greet!!!!! The building is too small to do anything else!! OR a DVC info session jubilee!!!

  • Why is it now opening when I was there for my birthday I was hoping to go on stiches greatest escape witch I was sad BECUSE it was closed and I’m really great fan of stich

  • Just put back Alien Encounter!!! One of the greatest Disney attractions of all time and it should never have closed. A Disney attraction that sprays “blood” on guests is nothing but awesome. Who cares if it traumatized little kids? It’s not Disney’s fault that overprotective parents and their little tyke are chicken. In fact CMs should have said “What’s wrong McFly? Chicken?” to angry parents, to take advantage of their personal weakness like Marty. Said parents would’ve frozen in their tracks slowly turned around, marched up to the CMs and furiously declared “Nobody calls me chicken!” At which point CMs would’ve said “Alright, prove it.”

  • I am glad that Stitch’s great escape is still operating. That is my favorite attraction..

    • So am I, it needs a lot more love more than ever! The least they could do is fix it up a bit and do more work in refurbishing both the animatronics for Stitch and 90210, and reworking the story and effects like adding in Stitch’s shadow on the wall during the cannon sequence, extra Stitch effects and extending the script and adding 2 alternate endings! Maybe that’d make it more popular!
