    Per Martin and Magic Feather on Magic, Stitch's Great Escape is set to close for a 3D Wreck it Ralph simulator to open in 2018 potentially. The ride will be similar to Minion Mayhem. Thoughts?

    Can't possibly be any worse than Stitch.

    Then again WIR doesn't belong in TL.

    Disney is really getting into the Screenz thing it seems. :ears::lol:

    I'm not sure I buy this. The rumor train has been all over the place lately. I guess we'll see.

    They no longer care about placement and theming. Sooner we stop expecting them to do what built the park experience the sooner the pain will end. IP du jour - just slam it in anyplace you can but be sure not to build anything new - that would add capacity and we can't have that.

    Just sad, no wonder they don't need imagineers any longer, no imagination left

    This is going to have more capacity than Stitch apparently, something that never has a wait outside of peak holidays. This is the equivalent of Twister to Fallon IMO

    I somehow doubt 18 months is enough time to gut and build for this. How long did the Minions into T2 take at USH?

    Not sure when construction started on Minions but T2 closed December of 2012 and Minions opened April of 2014

    I'm fine with this. I love Wreck-it Ralph, Stitch sucks, and it's a better property for Tomorrowland than Monsters Inc ever was.

    Official petition to correct Tomorrowland's name as of recent changes:
    Whatever-land.

    I seem them as pretty equally awful fits.

    Sorry, meant the ride. Yes, the (original) movie is much better.

    It'll take 12 months to get the chili dog smell out the building.

    I'm literally okay with another fast casual dining option replacing Stitch's Great Escape. But an actual attraction? I'm thrilled.
