My vote is for them to change the name from Alien Encounter to Stitch Encounter.

The latest rumors say Alien Encounter will close starting October 12, 2003, because the change to make Alien Encounter Stitch-themed has been given final approval!

According to these rumors, the attraction would be closed from 10/12/03 until August 2004 to make the changes.

That's dynamite! :coolgrin:  I wish we could find out in advance what the story or whatever will be like on it. Now I'm all anxious to see it, especially since I personally didn't care for Alien Encounter.

Yoo Hoo, Disney EchoEars!

The Orlando Sentinel says Alien Encounter will close October 11th (read the article here). The article points out that it was Michael Eisner who told the Imagineers to make Alien Encounter more intense when he saw an early preview of it, so they did - - and it has gotten complaints from Guests ever since that it was too scary.

Deb Wills is now also reporting what we had here over a week ago: "Alien Encounter to close for "re-development" October 12! A new attraction is set to open in Fall '04."

Note, there has not been any official word of this yet -- even though she doesn't mention about it going to be remade as a Stitch attraction.

As soon as I hear it straight from Disney, I'll move this topic out of the "Rumors" section.
:)

Yoo Hoo, Disney EchoEars!

Imagineering is leaking word that the new name for the Alien Encounter attraction after the rehab will be "Stitch Escape!" The letter below was sent out by Disney Imagineering and lists their current projects and history. Be sure to check out the last part where they list an attraction in 2004 at the Magic Kingdom called “Stitch Escape!”
