Synopsis

You have been recruited by The Grand Councilwoman to be guards for the Galactic Federation. After being taught the basic procedures of guard duty and the classification of prisoners by a sergeant robot (and a brief, but comical, reprisal of Skippy from ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter), Captain Gantu gives an alert of a level 3 prisioner being beamed to your location. You are told by Pleakly over communicator to assemble in the prison transport room. The prisoner is beamed to you in a large plume of smoke, which appears as Stitch (Lilo and Stitch). After a brief period of puzzlementitive talking over the communicator by other staff, Stitch uses the flaw of the armed laser cannons (the cannons follow and destroy any genetic material - including saliva) and disables all power to escape, causing mass (happy) chaos in the crowd. Power comes back on and the laser cannons attempt to bring Stitch down. Again using the cannon's fatal flaw, he manages to fire the laser cannons into the crowd. Shortly after using the diversion, he escapes to Florida's Walt Disney World. Cameras capture him traversing Cinderella Castle. The audience is then released from their duty and are sent to the gift shop. The Grand Councilwoman is the leader of the fictional United Galactic Federation in Walt Disney Pictures Lilo & Stitch series of animated movies and the spin-off television series. ...

Technology

The attraction includes much of the technology and sets from its predecessor, the ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter, including the comical alien Skippy in the preshow area. The 39-inch Audio-Animatronic Stitch figure built by Imagineering reportedly is one of the most complex creations of its size. Other special effects include binaural sound, simulated laser cannons and a pungent smell (that of a chilidog, which lampoons the rule about bringing food and drink into the theatre). Audio-Animatronics or just animatronics is a form of robotics created by Disneys Imagineers for several shows and attractions at Disney theme parks, and subsequently expanded on and used by other companies. ...
