^^Kool, proud mode or Jiminy's Journal? (Poster Duty was a pain...). Personally, I think I want to see KH3 on the 360. Whatever system has KH3 is going to be the one I buy without a doubt, but I kinda want it on the 360 so I can have an excuse to buy Viva Pinata. (It just looks so durn cute...)
But whether or not AE was a better attraction than Stitch, I think we can all agree that Stitch is a better fit for the WDW-MK audience. lata, jeremy
As much as I enjoyed Alien Encounter, and I really didn't like Stitch's Great Escape, the ride that Disney has absolutely ruined for me is Journey into Imagination. That was my all-time favorite ride anywhere, but when I rode it during IAAPA weekend in 2003, it was like a kick in the stomach. I have so many great memories of that ride, and now it's gone.
Needless to say, I'll never step foot in that building again.
Corey: Strong rumor about a 4th and final redo....this time bringing Dreamfinder back. Apparently, Tony Baxter was pissed at how badly his baby was butchered and has been after John Lassiter to give him $$$. I hope it's true and not just a rumor.

I was reading on some of the comments posted on the Youtube.com comments and one person said:
The show was NOT discontinued to make it more kid-friendly. What happened was that actor Jeffrey Jones (Chairman Clench) was allegedly charged with sex with a minor (you can see his mug shot on Yahoo picture search). And just like CAPTAIN EO, which suddenly vanished when Michael Jackson was charged with the same crime, ALIEN ENCOUNTER has vanished. Disney has to keep up its good image, I guess.
I wonder if this is the reason they finally decided to change it to the Stitch Escape, or maybe the final straw?

I also thought Alien Encounter was a great attraction! I liked the special effects and hearing the kids scream and cry with real terror in their voices! After riding Stitch's Great Escape, I left the attraction in disbelief. Disney truly removed an excellent attraction!

My guess is that is untrue. Unlike Captain EO, where the actor in question was throughout the entire film, Jeffrey Jones was only in a VERY limited number of parts of AE which could have EASILY been reshot if need be. Reshooting the scenes for AE would have been a FAR less costly move than changing the ride all together. Captain EO, on the other hand, would have required them to reshoot the entire film, and if they were going to do that, I'm sure they figured it was just better to make a completly new show.
I'm not saying this couldn't be PART of the reason why AE left, but I'm just saying that it isn't the ONLY reason that AE left.
If you can't stand the heights, get out of the line.
