Stitch's Great Escape - Will Stitch Make Your Kid Glitch?

Updated on January 16, 2012

How Scary Is Stitch's Great Escape?

Alright so I get this question a lot from many friends and family that take their smaller children to the world that Mickey built: Is Stitch's Great Escape scary?

First off Stitch made is way into Tomorrowland after Disney decided to remove the ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter. This move caused debate amongst the Disney Fans as the attraction didn't live up to the hype of its predecessor, although some Mickey Maniacs like myself my disagree.

In the attraction you are recruited by the Galactic Federation as a new guard recruit for the Prisoner Teleportation Center. When you first enter the attraction you are introduced to the Galactic Federation Grand Councilwoman, she tells you about how you are here to guard the creatures of the universe deemed as "naughty". After an introduction, Agent Pleakly from the film orders you into the training lab where you are then shown the ropes by Robot Agent 90210. Then all of the sudden lights and sirens begin to go off, you are told that you are not guarding a Level 1 or Level 2 prisoner like 90210 has been training you for, a Level 3 is coming in!! You are ordered into the Maximum Security Level 3 Chamber.

As you are in the chamber you are introduced to your prisoner. But wait a minute? He's cute and fluffy...and tiny. Stitch is now regarded as a mistake, no way he could be a Level 3. But not too soon after Captain Gantu leaves to sort this mess out, Stitch begins to start up chaos. Cannons begin to misfire, the lights go out, Stitch begins running around the room stealing food and messing with everyone, including you! Finally Stitch hotwires the transportation tube and makes his "Great Escape".

But the question remains: is this attraction to scary for younger audiences?

The biggest issue with this and I've heard it from many parents is this : It's too dark. If you're child is not a fan of the dark then you need to get away from this attraction because over half of it is spent in pitch blackness. With Stitch messing with your hair and spitting at you being funny and entertaining, a fear of the dark can turn this into a child's worst nightmare.

So use your judgement, if you child regularly comes in saying he can't sleep because the dark is mortifying him/her then save Stitch for a couple years down the road. But if the dark isn't a problem then go right on in and see the surprises that Stitch has in store for you, he's always got a ton!

      Then I would say now to Stitch then! But he's reaching the height mark just in time then! Have you heard about the reimagined Star Tours? It's great, they've done it at Disneyland too! Now in 3-D and taking you to many different destinations, it's completely (no pun intended) out of this world!

      My little one doesn't hear very well, so I have a feeling the dark would just totally cause him to flip out. He would LOVE Star Tours, though - we're waiting until he's tall enough to ride, because he loves thrill rides and LOVES Star Wars. He's just barely touching the 40" minimum mark now, so we'll be good to go next year or the year after.

      I remember being little and Alien Encounter scaring the pants off me! If they're old enough to listen to watch Stitch is saying then I say go for it. If not then the dark will probably freak them out.

      I've been on Alien Encounter, and it was definitely NOT for kids! I haven't been back since they changed it into Stitch's Great Escape, but we would probably skip it with our two boys. They can handle thrill rides, but the psychological sort of "thrill" would just freak them out. I kind of hope they put a different ride in that area - I wasn't a huge fan of Alien Encounter, either :-/
