    Hello All! I figured I would drop a little tid but I have been given by a friend in Imagineering. It seems that we can see an attraction at MK being replaced quite soon, to make way for a new, high capacity attraction to take care of the large capacity problems MK is having. Will let know more as I Can tell you.

    EDIT: Just noticed @marni1971 brought this up in the Tommorowland Rock Paint Job Thread, yes, the soon to be evicted resident is in Tommorowland and is (as of now) Stitch. This can be expected to be done rather quickly, but with significant changes.

    'Stitch's Great Escape' going away possibly.....

    Of the two choices, I would have thought they would remove the 'Laugh Floor'.
    It seems to me it would be a more cost effective choice since it burns more payroll to operate ( both CMs and Entertainment Cast behind the curtains ).
    Also, I would have thought it would be a more appealing target as the square footage inside is larger then the spot where 'Stitch's' is located.

    Interesting.

    Of the two, I would keep 'Stitch' and dump 'Laugh Floor'.

    I love LILO and Stitch, but I was so confused on this ride. I couldn't tell what was going on. The seats were painful. I wish they could connect both this and Laugh Floor to make a big E Ticket.

    This ride was an absolutely dreadful experience for me, even with the great animatronic... as NSYNC would say, "Bye, bye, bye". Now if we can just evict the laugh floor and find suitable replacements, we'll be cooking with hot oil!

    I don't see how they could fit a 'people eater' into such a space but I'm intrigued...

    Any Stitch replacement that may or may not happen wouldn't be a "people eater"

    Disney may be thinking of the one-eyed, one-horned, flying, purple kind.

    I understand if you can't say anything about it, but do you know if it will be an IP or something original to fit in the original theme of Tomorrowland?

    I took the OP saying rather quickly as another refurb of an existing ride.

    IMO MK still doesn't need too much help though. Id much rather see dinorama bebulldozed than another addition to MK.
