I didn't care for it, but the rest of the family liked it. The five year old even asked to do it again the next day while the big kids were on Space Mountain.

We finally did it in our last visit and basically wished we could get that 10 Minutes of our lives back. It's not scary for most -- my 4 yr old dd wasn't frightened -- and the smell is a little gross. honestly it's just stupid. In my opinion a complete waste of Disney space. But for sure if your kids want to do it you should. Obviously some people think its great

I have no issues with it. If you're expecting a ride then no, it's not going to be that. It's more of a "show" where you'll get squirted in the face & smell some smoke for a few seconds (if that). People whine on here if there's a pebble out of place on a walkway... it's a little extreme.

I personally really enjoy this attraction at MK. I know (obviously) that what I'm experiencing is identical to every one else on board at that time, but imagination is a beautiful thing, and mine never grew up. Ultimately, if you dig Stitch and his complete lack of social graces, I think you'll enjoy yourself on his "Great Escape".

My DS loved it at 7. Of course, he still thinks human body functions are hysterical at 10. The adults liked it because the kids liked it. I guess it depends on you.

Absolutely hated it! It was disgusting and the biggest waste of time. Stitch burps and blows it on you. Was a bout to vomit myself. If you have manners, you will not enjoy

A lot of strong smells make me queasy but I can handle the chili burp just fine. If you move your head forwards the smell isn't that strong.
yep and this dad thinks burps and farts are funny too (sometimes)

No. I haven't been on it due to the You Tube video alone. Unless you want to feel it, just watch it on You Tube (no wait!)
In search of a new signature, maybe even an avatar too.

My DS who was 4 at the time hated it! He was terrified. Since he was just at the height requirement the CM had to manually lock him in his seat. He bawled the entire ride. When the lights finally came up we had to wait for everyone to leave before the CM could come and let him out of the seat. It was an awful experience for us. It's no fault of anyone, but we won't be doing it this year. I wasn't impressed with the ride anyway so I'm not torn up about it.

I love Stitch, but I hate his attraction. I think I dislike it mostly on principle though. I loved the Alien ride. Loved, loved, loved it. I get that Stitch is more family friendly, but I wish they would bring back the ExtraTERRORestrial ride. Put it in HS or something.

I hated it (I know that's quite strong) as nothing really happens and I'd rather queue for something else like Uzz or Space Mountain. Hated Alien before that too!

Nope the ride is probably one of the worst rides at Disney in my opinion. Went on it once, never again.

wow, lot of negative reviews on here - we like it with some exceptions - DS10 doesn't like the volume, but doesn't like loud noises ANYWHERE (plugs his ears for fireworks ), so Stitch is no exception. DS12 doesn't like the restraints (bit claustrophobic) so he sits up real tall so the restraints don't come all the way down, and he doesn't like the tickle/talk in the ear, so he moves his head forward at bit.

SO, there's ways to avoid the little unpleasantries and still enjoy the shows (boys find the smells funny )

But I agree with the sentiment....try it for yourself to decide. We do it every year, but to each their own.

I like the attraction but the restraints hurt my shoulders. They are way too tight, and I'm not a big person.
