RUMOR: Wreck-It Ralph Attraction Will Replace Stitch’s Great Escape at the Magic Kingdom

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

Walt Disney Imagineering is once again developing a Wreck-It Ralph based attraction to replace the “seasonal” Stitch’s Great Escape in Tomorrowland at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom.

Rumors of a Wreck-It Ralph “virtual reality” attraction replacing Great Escape began back in the Summer of 2016, but nothing ever came of them and the project was reportedly scraped. Disney CEO Bob Iger went on to state that they were not looking to add any VR attractions inside the theme parks, and would keep them relegated to The Void locations in Anaheim and Orlando. Rumors insist that an actual Wreck-It Ralph Virtual Reality attraction will open with the 2nd film in the series this November at those Disney Springs and Downtown Disney locations, but now a Disney-created Wreck-It Ralph attraction is being designed for Tomorrowland at the Magic Kingdom in Florida.

While we don’t really know what this attraction will be (we’re assuming now not-VR based), we do know it will replace Stitch’s Great Escape, which Disney has currently stated is a seasonal attraction (we’re not sure what that means anymore as the show has not reopened since January, even through busy Easter and 4th of July holidays at Walt Disney World). It is possible that Stitch will make his final escape to accommodate the closure of the Tomorrowland Speedway in 2019, which Disney announced this week. Either way, work on the Wreck-It Ralph attraction is very early in development and no actual construction will be seen for a bit.

    • There just isn’t enough physical space to do a full blown ride. Mission to Mars/Alien Encounter/Stitch is just basically a room (actually, there are two and a pre-show area) and not a very big room at that. You would have to knock out everything from Cosmic Ray’s (stupid restaurant… try ordering chicken and burger at the same time) to the bathrooms to smoothie place and Mickey Star Traders to put in any type of small ride. I just do not see that happening.

  • You are saying this like it has been confirmed.This rumor wad dead a year ago.You people need to stop saying stuff like it was confirmed by disney.the ony site i trust is wdwmagic for rumors.they actually have evidence to support their rumors

    • Then why was wdwnagic slow on the draw about Skyliner? WDWNT was first out about it and the minnie cars. Take a xanax and calm down. No one was saying anything was confirmed either. Why are you here if you only trust wdwmagic anyway lol

    • Well, isn’t that kind of going against the definition of a rumor then?? haha. A rumor is a currently circulating story or report of uncertain or doubtful truth. No need to have “evidence” for every rumor. Stop having a cardiac Cardiac Pack

    • If you don’t like the site..don’t visit. Seriously, what do you get out of posting this? I bet you’ve already gone to the other site and bragged about this post. If you don’t like the news, if you don’t like the writing, if you don’t like the sources…don’t visit the site. You’ll be much happier. Oh..and try not to hurt yourself getting off that high horse. Dumb.

  • How about instead, bring alien encounter back! No one wants this attraction to take the spot where that attraction lived.

    Everyone wants alien encounter back in it’s original spot
