Everything’s coming up Stitch at Tokyo Disneyland Park with the announcement that a new STITCH ENCOUNTER attraction will be opening on July 17, 2015. The date should have special recognition to Disney fans as that marks the 60th anniversary of the opening of the original Disneyland Park in California.
The new theater-type attraction promises some face to face time with Experiment 626 himself at the Stitch Monitoring Station where you can have live-time conversations with the character via a large screen. The concept is similar to one that existed in Innoventions at Disneyland several years ago. The same premise is also used at Disney Parks for the Turtle Talk with Crush attraction.
