When a sign mysteriously popped up at the former Stitch’s Great Escape at the Magic Kingdom, we speculated that the new Alien Encounter Character Greeting would temporarily replace the often-panned Tomorrowland attraction. Well, today, that new experience opened to guests.
Stitch’s Alien Encounter Character Greeting uses the queue from Great Escape, eventually leading to a character meet and greet with Stitch in the first preview room.
Guests exit back through the entry area, so the meet and greet utilizes no other space from the Attraction beyond the first pre-show room.
Stitch’s Alien Encounter Character Greeting opened today at 10:30am and closes at 7pm. Hours may fluctuate based on the day.
Disney is stating that Stitch’s Great Escape will still operate seasonally and is not closed for good as of yet.
