When it comes to Magic Kingdom, many fans would agree: that mistake is Stitch’s Great Escape.

The attraction, which is a theater-in-the-round experience featuring the escaped alien Stitch, opened in the Tomorrowland area of Magic Kingdom in 2004 and is commonly regarded as one of the worst attractions at Disney World. In fact, after analyzing the opinions of 126,000 children in 2016, the site Touring Plans found that Stitch’s Great Escape came in dead last among kids’ most-liked attractions. However, despite the ride’s unpopularity, Stitch has hung around at the Magic Kingdom for nearly 14 years, overstaying his welcome and finally being put on a seasonal schedule in 2016.

As Ken Storey at Orlando Weekly so aptly put it, “After the world is inevitably thrown into a nuclear holocaust where all life comes to an end, there will only be three things left on this fire crusted Earth; cockroaches, Cher, and Stitch’s Great Escape at the Magic Kingdom.”

For the past two years, the attraction has only run when Magic Kingdom is extremely busy, such as during the holiday week between Christmas and New Year’s when families flock to the parks. Now, it seems that the ride may finally close for good.

According to WDW News Today, the attraction is rumored to be closing on January 6 after making its final run over the 2017 holiday season. While this rumor is now widespread throughout the “kingdom,” Disney has yet to confirm the news. On Wednesday, Disney’s official in-park Twitter feed even responded to a query about the ride, offering no answer as to the fate of the attraction, but merely sharing the operating hours with the user.

Another user was quick to point out that while the Disney World website lists operating hours through this coming Saturday, hours are unavailable starting Sunday, January 6, the day the ride is rumored to close for good.

Although the news is not confirmed, many loyal Disney guests have been treating this week as Stitch’s last, putting aside their differences with the friendly alien and waiting in line to experience his escape one last time.

Rumors also say that the ride will be closing to make way for a brand new experience in Tomorrowland, but Disney has yet to comment on this information as well.
