5 Spots to Spot Stitch in WDW’s Tomorrowland
Every Chris Sanders fan knows that you can see Stitch at Tomorrowland’s Stitch’s Great Escape. But did you know that Experiment 626 can also be found in four other spots in Tomorrowland?
S’true! Continuing the story of Stitch’s ‘great escape,’ the
Imagineers planted various pieces of evidence detailing the lovable
little alien’s adventures in Tomorrowland.
First up, there’s the announcement of Stitch’s escape.
Near the entrance to the PeopleMover stands a tall, silver robot labeled Robo-Newz. This newsboy-of-the-future has a small stack of newspapers tucked in his bionic belly. The newspaper for sale, the Galactic Gazette, features the
headline, “STITCH ESCAPES!”
The next spot to spot Stitch is in the exit to Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin. But be forewarned: You’re gonna need really, really good eyes.
Upon exiting your vehicle at the end of the ride, check out the murals on the wall to your
right. A teensy-tiny painting of Stitch’s spaceship is flying in the top
left corner of the first mural. It’s almost as if Stitch went for a ride on Space-Ranger Spin, only instead of riding in the XP-37 star cruiser, he brought his own spaceship!
Stitch’s next appearance is on another ride – Space Mountain.
In the safety video playing throughout the Space Mountain
queue, a 3D ‘digital scan’ of Stitch can be glimpsed in the section
asking riders to place all “hats, glasses and loose possessions in the
storage pouch in front of you.” Yes, it seems like Stitch is hitting all
the best rides!
The last spot to spot Stitch is in the Tomorrowland gift shop, Merchant of Venus.
The next time you’re in the shop, take a look up at the ceiling. Not only did Stitch leave a trail of footprints criss-crossing the store, he can also be seen smashing his way through the ceiling tiles!
So now that you’ve finally found the ‘escaped’ Stitch, what are you going to do? Turn him in to Galactic Star Command, let him continue his life on the lam, or ask him to join your ohana and move back home with you?
I know which one I’m going to choose!
