Signage is being replaced, now it's "Stitch's Alien Encounter Character Greeting"
Maybe they'll do it like a puppet and you go into the theater for an improvised show, like Crush.
I'm really hoping it's not just meeting Stitch in one of the preshow halls.
Maybe. But don't they already have a Stitch costume?
You bet your buttons they'll choose to use the costume.
Isn't there a chance that's just a temporary sign and they just pop it off during peak periods when they reopen the attraction? I can't imagine them doing anything more elaborate than just having a character photo-op in that first waiting room.
The attraction is bad, good riddance. I bet they got guest satisfaction numbers so bad again they finally pulled the trigger.
$10 it's just Stitch in the first room with a PhotoPass person.
Wait, so they didn't convert that animatronic Stitch to be used for a M&G?
The Stitch AA looks like he MMA fights in his off hours. It is in horrible shape.
Ironically, MMA after hours was an attraction pushed hard by Eisner
I'm not expecting it to remain a Stitch Meet and Greet forever. There's a good deal of space there, and to just relegate it to a character meet and greet would be a waste. I say bring back the Tomorrowland Interplanetary Convention Center theming and work it into whatever ride/show replaces it.
I'm hoping that this M&G could be Disney's version of Raptor Encounter using the Stitch AA. I know it won't happen. It's just a nice pipe dream.
Unpopular opinion, but I rode Stitch's Great Escape a couple years ago when I was last at the park. It wasn't a great ride, but it seemed better than the scathing reviews everybody gives it. It was different. You sat in a circle theater and watched an AA. There's no other ride that has such a different setup and it was refreshing.
It felt more like a show than a ride to me.
I only rode this "ride" once and I have the same exact feelings as you stated.
Really? Disney fans call it a thrill ride that is way too intense for humans. Then again they can't drink milk because it too spicy.
Tourists are to blame for this one (the change from AE to SGE). I've met A LOT of dusters when I was on the DCP and even they think Stitch sucks.
I kind of had a feeling this day would come, just because of all the seasonal silliness. It was just a matter of time since they started doing that. It was a cool ride, but it would be even cooler to see a new one be put in its place. But I suppose for now, the character meet and greet will have to do. We all know that Disney likes to do things in their own time, haha.
My biggest fear is that this M&G will get high GSATs and it will be a long ass time before we see a new attraction in there.
Bring back Alien Encounter!
I think they should do something there were you go to the moon. I’m not sure how they can do it. Maybe with screens. The circular theater would be perfect for something like that.
I still maintain that the Stitch AA - when in its prime - was worth the proverbial price of admission. I won't miss the attraction, but I'll miss that AA, and I certainly won't be pleased to see a meet-and-great taking over for an indefinite amount of time...
... because M&Gs are not attractions, despite what Disney wants us to believe.
