Note: Stitch’s Great Escape is open seasonally.

Enter the Galactic Federation Prisoner Teleport Center. It’s your first day on the job. While you are training to handle “level one” prisoners, a “level three” prisoner, otherwise known as Stitch, is captured. This show centers around Stitch’s escape from prison and engages four out of the five senses (sight, hearing, touch, and, unfortunately, smell).

Stitch’s Great Escape is basically a re-skinned version of the retired Magic Kingdom attraction “Alien Encounter.” While the ride has been made a lot less frightening, it is also a lot less interesting. It’s not very engaging for adults, and it still might scare young children due to periods of extended darkness. Unless you’re a huge fan of Lilo & Stitch, you should probably just skip this ride if the wait is any longer than 5 minutes.

Tips and Trivia

  • This ride features the voice of character actor Richard Kind.
  • Is the wait over 5 minutes? Look around. There are at least a dozen better rides within walking distance.
