Stitch’s Great Escape Open for the Peak Season at Walt Disney World

Stitch’s Great Escape typically only operates seasonally in the Tomorrowland area of Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World.  We have confirmed that Stitch’s Great Escape will be open from December 23rd through January 6th, 2018, from 10AM to 6PM each day.  The attraction is expected to be closed again on January 7th, 2019.  During the holiday season, the Magic Kingdom often closes to capacity and the parks experience longer lines and wait times.  Opening an additional attraction helps to alleviate the lines and provide more for guests to experience while in the park.

Stitch’s Great Escape officially became a seasonal-only attraction in October of 2016.  We see the attraction open during the various busy times throughout the year.   The attraction typically receives a lot of negative feedback from many of the Walt Disney World regulars and hasn’t been one of the “favorite” attractions within the park.  Many guests have been looking forward to a possible conversion of the attraction to a brand new experience.  There were rumors that Stitch’s Great Escape would be replaced with a Wreck-It-Ralph themed attraction in the future, but we haven’t heard anything additional about it over the last several months.  We aren’t sure if this refurbishment is still under consideration or not.

Where are the fans of Stitch’s Great Escape?  Who is looking forward to the chance to enjoy the attraction again?

About Christy Caby

I am a long time Disney addict! This love began as a child and stayed with me in my teen years. I completed the Disney College Program, was engaged and honeymooned at Disney, visited WDW while pregnant with each of our two boys, and have brought our boys since they were babies (they are now 5 and 2). We have over 10 Disney World vacations under our belt. Our recent adventure was a big move from St. Louis, MO to Florida! We knew that we needed more Disney magic that just a couple times of year, and we worked hard to make it happen! Now we hit the parks almost every weekend! We are working to dine at every location, experience every attraction and look for every hidden Mickey! We want to be able to say that we have one it all! We are branching into the Cruise Line and are planning a trip to Disneyland in California next year. To say that we are Disney addicts may be an understatement. When I am not at WDW with my family, I am reading Disney blogs and news, crafting (usually Disney décor for our home), planning Disney vacations for others or working on my dissertation for my doctoral program. I am a Project Manager by profession, so I have mastered fitting everything into a tight schedule! We feel we lead an exciting life where we get to spend a lot of time together doing what we love! I love being able to this love and Disney magic with everyone else so that others can make the most of whatever time they get to have at the most magical place on earth!
