2 questions that came up with all these rumors that poor little old me can't handle and needs some answers so i went to my friends that work at disney and they know as much as me so i come here to my forum friends to make a right out of a mess.

1) what is the name of this ride now is it still great escape or stitch encounter wasn't stitch's great escape confermed?

2) i am going in august as some on this forum already know is it true of what i heard along w/ a few employees that the opening is set for sometime in September of this year and that all of us whom go in august might be able to ride it in previews?

thanks a bunch much disney love to all whom read or answer:wave:

1) Stitch's Great Escape seems to be the official name
(Even though it's not TECHNICALLY "Stitch" :) )

2) From what we've been hearing it should be open in some form
(either Soft or Regular) during your visit. I hope at least you
enjoy it because I don't plan on seeing it :lol:

Stitch's Great Escape! seems to be the official name. Though I've been seeing ESCAPE written in all caps a lot lately.

All major construction is done now, only cosmetic work and the line cue are still being worked on.

Soft openings in late May or Mid June. :)

Yes now after that all that is left is for all the Imagineers to gather up anything left over from Alien Encounter and to put it into a pile. And then they can just let me pick it up when I'm down there in June.

Skippy is still in the attraction, so I don't think there is any Skippy stuff to give away. lol

well this is all great to here about stitch being open hopefully when i go down but it is still said to hear about Alien encounter even though Skippy and SIR are still going to be in the preshow area so and the seating area and main show concept are going to be similar its not a complete lose but i will miss alien encounter but i am glad that lilo and stitch has a ride the only problem imho it belongs at mgm.

Hmm..I was really excited to hear there was a very small chance for soft openings in June, but late May is the earliest date I've heard yet. Wow.

dxwwf3, love the avatar also. Is it just me, or does the alien almost look like a mutated Figment :)

Speaking of similarities, skippy kinda reminds me of Stich's lazy cousin who likes sandwiches. If this wasn't a prequal to the movie, maybe they could have used that character (forgot his name). I'm glad they didn't though...gotta love skippy!

Yes he certainly did! Sorta the antithesis of Figment as well.

Well, when I walked around in there last week, I don't see it opening any time soon, especially without the animatronics installed. the only thing open is the Gift shop, and it's not finised yet.

PM me if you have questions.

I never really got a good look at the alien befor, but after lookin at the avatar it does kinda look like Figment. That makes me even more angry that they closed the attraction.

I think I found a soon to be pattern.

Tom Morrow - Preshow host of Flight to the Moon and Mission to Mars

SIR - Preshow host of Alien Encounter and Stitch....

Anyone find it weird that in 33 years, that one building has hosted 4 attractions?

Actually I believe that S.I.R. has been dismantled for parts (according to Bill) so I would have to guess that he will not host the 2nd preshow to SGE. And I still find it hard to believe that the character of Skippy will return in SGE. I'm sure it will be a totally new character with the same animatronic.

I have little to no information on the Stitch attraction...Does anyone have any rumors or photos or anything regarding this attraction??? I know it's pretty much going to be the same layout as AE (RIP) but any idea of the storyline behind it yet???

(i didn't see the above post before...sorry)
