The story behind this attraction takes place before the events in the movie Lilo & Stitch. Guests enter the Galactic Federation Prisoner Teleport Center, automatically becoming new recruits in a volunteer guard program. After an explanation and demonstration, we're taken to a high-security chamber to guard a new arrival: Experiment 626 (aka Stitch). Naturally, the security systems aren't enough to keep the creature contained, and chaos ensues.

Total darkness, biurnal speakers and in-seat water and air effects play with your senses as it seems that Stitch is climbing all around you. Keep in mind that this isn't the happy, nice Stitch from the end of Lilo & Stitch. This is the mean, nasty Stitch from the beginning. With these somewhat intense special effects, this attraction leaves many little ones crying in terror, which is why it's consistently the lowest-rated attraction in the world on ThemeParkInsider.com. But among those who appreciate irreverent mayhem, Stitch has its fans.

How could you hate this?! It's got, um, well, it's got, yeah, there's really nothing going for it. go to WDW every year, and consistently walk right by it. I was never big enough to ride ALIEN ENCOUNTER, but I still know how bad this one is. Take my advice, and just keep walking. - DPCC inc.

It's okay. The short lines should tell you that it's a miss 6/10 Wall-E ride ?? - Owen Scott

When will Disney get it right... ALIEN ENCOUNTER WAS RIGHT - Jaiden Cohen

when the lights went off i thought it was going to be boring but when it started i knew i was right - luca ferracuti

The first two scenes were alright, but I spent most of the show looking at Stitch's behind. Also, be warned, this gets dark. Little children were crying when the lights were out. - Jeff Krinock

This attraction is an example of audience identity crisis. Is it for adults or for children? The answer is neither. In an effort to update the attraction, Disney lost both audiences and now the experience is a wasted effort. 1/10. - Nick McKaig
