Stitch’s Great Escape switching to ‘seasonal’ operation this fall

[dropcap]S[/dropcap]titch’s Great Escape, an attraction at Magic Kingdom theme park, will no longer be open on a daily basis as of Oct. 2, a Walt Disney World spokeswoman has confirmed.

The attraction, located in the park’s Tomorrowland area, will be open seasonally as attendance demands. Its final day of regular operation will be Oct. 1.

Stitch’s Great Escape opened in late 2004, and it features the blue-ish rambunctious alien character from “Lilo & Stitch,” a Disney animated film that debuted in 2002. Disney World’s website says the attraction’s story is a prequel to the big-screen edition.

According to the official Disney World website, the Stitch attraction will be open Nov. 19-26 and Dec. 17-Jan. 2.

The Stitch attraction took the place of ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter, which opened in 1995. Both attractions used a theater-in-the-round format and science-fiction elements, although the storyline for Alien Encounter was considered more intense. The latest version includes an audio-animatronic version of Stitch.
