Walt Disney World is undergoing a lot of big changes in the coming years and that includes a number of new rides and attractions to its different parks. A brand-new TRON ride is being built in Tomorrowland at Magic Kingdom but a lot of people thought something more would be happening to an older attraction in that area. Well, it is now known that Stitch’s Great Escape isn’t just seasonal anymore, but it is becoming an “Alien Encounter.”
Rumors from earlier this year had the seasonal attraction being shut down entirely and turned into a Wreck-It Ralph virtual reality ride. While anything is possible in the future, those rumors have proven to be nothing more than speculation and it simply isn’t happening.
Even though Stitch’s Great Escape has only been open a few months here and there in the last year, Disney is finally doing something more with it. Over the weekend, the sign outside of the attraction was changed as shown in a picture taken by Twitter user @1Ben_Laurence, and it appeared to hint at what was to come.
No longer does the sign talk about the experience inside, but it states there will be an “Alien Encounter Character Greeting!”
