While most Disney attractions around the world are beloved by the fans who ride them, even the Mouse can make a mistake.
When it comes to Magic Kingdom, many fans would agree: that mistake is Stitch’s Great Escape.
The attraction, which is a theater-in-the-round experience featuring the escaped alien Stitch, opened in the Tomorrowland area of Magic Kingdom in 2004 and is commonly regarded as one of the worst attractions at Disney World. In fact, after analyzing the opinions of 126,000 children in 2016, the site Touring Plans found that Stitch’s Great Escape came in dead last among kids’ most-liked attractions. However, despite the ride’s unpopularity, Stitch has hung around at the Magic Kingdom for nearly 14 years, overstaying his welcome and finally being put on a seasonal schedule in 2016.
For the past two years, the attraction has only run when Magic Kingdom is extremely busy, such as during the holiday week between Christmas and New Year’s when families flock to the parks. Now, it seems that the ride may finally close for good.
