    I liked Stitch, But then, I'm a HUGE Stitch fan. I thought it was cute, not thrilling, but, cute. I just don't understand why there is a height requirement....kids would LOVE this...I know my daughter would..but she's two inches too short to see it.

    Re: Pictures of the Alien that use to be in Alien Encounter?

    ^Your daughter is in the minority of children then, the majority of kids I've seen coming off of it are crying, IF they make it all the way through. That's why there is a height requirement (it opened without one), too many Guests complained that it was too scary for their kids or that the scared kids were ruining it for them.

    mrcoaster, the attraction was toned down after opening, it was much more scary during CM previews than the final version of the attraction ended up being.

    figment1986, the attraction was originally conceived as an MGM attraction featuring the Alien form Alien and Aliens. That idea was later dropped once George Lucas became involved and the project was designated to replace Mission to Mars as part of Disneyland's Tomorrowland 2055 project. Once that fell through, it was moved to WDW to replace WDW's Mission to Mars.

    It was always designed fro WDW.. but planned to open first at DL... and not WDW... And yes... i did hear that... but the marketing people still used Alien from alien in the promitional material.. I remember it well....

    I remember going on AE once and it scared the bejebus out of me. I remember my then boyfriend laughed his azz off at me and wouldn't stop taunting me, so I hauled off and clobbered him as soon as we got back outside.

    Having never experienced AE, I gots a question. Was the Alien fluid and lifelike?

    Have you faced the Yeti?

    No, the Alien AA wasn't extremely fluid or lifelike, but it looked good enough. It was confined in the tube so it couldn't really move a lot and you never really got to look at that long before the lights go back out

    not to go too far off topic but if you are familiar with the stories of H. P. Lovecraft, the alien from alien encounter resembles a migo

    Re: Pictures of the Alien that use to be in Alien Encounter?

    On my one experienced in AE I thought it was pretty cool, but I didn't get the breathing/licking sensation thru my harness. The best part was the overhead CM getting chomped.

    Can't help thinking it would make a great MGM addition with Aliens from the Fox films.
    Anybody got the details of what was toned down after the CM previews?

    Re: Pictures of the Alien that use to be in Alien Encounter?

    It was never illuminated for more than a few seconds, the majority of the show was in the dark. But I'd say it was more than lifelike enough for the short time it is visible. The scary part wasnt seeing it, but when it breathed down your neck, or you felt the blood (or spit I'm not too sure) get flung over you, and seeing the maintenance worker get eaten alive.
