Stitch’s Great Escape Rumored To Be Closing Permanently

Stitch’s Great Escape is rumored to be closing yet again, but this time, closing permanently. Although Disney has not confirmed this closure, multiple online sources have been reporting it.

Over a year ago, Stitch’s Great Escape went to seasonal operation, which meant the ride would be open for a few weeks and a time and then closed. After that, Stitch was moved there for his meet and greet.

We’ve been talking about the imminent demise of Stitch’s Great Escape for two years now, but it always seems that this attraction comes right back again, much to the disappointment of the anti-fans of this attraction.

Could this “permanent closure” mean that a new attraction will come in its place? And don’t worry about Stitch, he will move back to his former location near Space Mountain during the Christmas break.  But, so far, no word on the future of his meet and greet beyond early January 2018.
