PHOTOS: Stitch’s Great Escape Signage Removed at the Magic Kingdom

Stitch has left the building, as attraction signage for Stitch’s Great Escape at the Magic Kingdom has been removed following the announcement of the attractions’s official closure. Today, we trekked over to Tomorrowland to check on the current scene outside of the former attraction.

As you approach the former site of Stitch’s Great Escape (and, up until the theme park shutdown, Stitch’s Alien Encounter Character Greeting), you can see that a grey tarp has been draped over the old wait times sign. You’ll also notice that the massive hanging sign with Stitch is gone from the upper level of the PeopleMover, with just an old metal railing left at the top. On the ground, a large black and grey box now encases the large stone base for the now-removed sign.

The old turnstiles still remain intact.

Stitch’s Great Escape has long since been “Temporarily Closed” at the Magic Kingdom (and is rumored to be replaced with a new “Wreck-It Ralph” attraction.) Back in March, permits were filed for the interior demolition of the theater that houses what remains of Stitch’s Great Escape. This project is now likely delayed or cancelled. With character meet-and-greets temporarily suspended due to new health and safety regulations, the location has finally met its long-awaited final closure.

If you’re still feeling nostalgic, here’s the last-ever showing of Stitch’s Great Escape at the Magic Kingdom, filmed back in 2018:

  1. Although I wasn’t a fan of the stitch attraction, I’m kind of sad that the demolition sounds like it will remove the last traces of the old Flight to the Moon/Mission to Mars attraction.
