Stitch’s Great Escape Open for the Holiday Season at Walt Disney World

It is official that Stitch’s Great Escape will be open from December 17 through December 31, 2016.  It is expected to close again on January 1, 2017.  During the holiday season, the Magic Kingdom often closes to capacity and the parks experience longer lines and wait times.  Opening an additional attraction helps to alleviate the lines and provide more for guests to experience while in the park.


Stitch’s Great Escaped became a seasonal attraction in October 2016.  We expected to see the attraction open again during these busy times.  There are rumors that this attraction will be replaced with a Wreck-It-Ralph themed attraction in the future, but no official dates have been announced.

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
