Breaking News: Stitch’s Great Escape! to Begin Operating on a Seasonal Schedule will have you jumping for joy if Stitch’s Great Escape! is not on your family’s must-do list of attractions!

Select Days and Hours

To get straight to the breaking news, it appears Stitch’s Great Escape!, in Tomorrowland at Magic Kingdom, is going to a seasonal operating schedule beginning next month. It will be closing October 1 and reopening November 19 just in time for the busy Thanksgiving holiday week. It will close again on November 27 until reopening on December 17. The attraction will then stay open through the Christmas and New Year week.

Not only is Stitch’s Great Escape! cutting back to select days, it’s operating hours are also changing. On the days it will be open to guests, the new hours it will be running are from 10am until 8pm.


There have been rumors floating around for quite some time that Stitch’s Great Escape! will be reimagined into a Wreck It Ralph attraction. With this new, decreased operating schedule, those rumors might just have some merit to them. Especially with no information of when or if it will stay open past the New Year’s holiday.

The Worst Ride in all of Walt Disney World?

stitchs-great-escape-magic-kingdom-attractionStitch’s Great Escape! has been deemed by many as “the worst ride in all of Walt Disney World”. I’ll be totally up front and honest here, I’ve never actually experienced Stitch’s Great Escape! I have researched it and spoken with friends and have always found and heard horrible reviews. So we at Walt Express really hope this new operating schedule and reduced hours is the beginning of the end of Stitch’s Great Escape!
