The ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter (often abbreviated Alien Encounter) was a “theater-in-the-round” attraction located in the Tomorrowland section of the Magic Kingdom theme park at Walt Disney World Resort. A co-production between Walt Disney Imagineering and Lucasfilm (then separate from The Walt Disney Company), the attraction was a darkly humorous science fiction experience that used binaural sound to achieve many of its effects.
The Attraction briefly opened for previews on December 16, 1994, on the site of the former Mission to Mars attraction, but was ordered closed on January 12, 1995, for retooling by then-Disney CEO Michael Eisner, who deemed it was not intense enough. It opened officially on June 20, 1995, as part of the Magic Kingdom’s New Tomorrowland renovation. Upon its opening, some Disney fans praised ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter for its darker tone in contrast to other attractions at Magic Kingdom. It closed permanently on October 12, 2003. The attraction was replaced by Stitch’s Great Escape! which opened on November 16, 2004 and operated until January 6, 2018, using much of the same technology and set pieces from its predecessor.

Most of the footage used in this presentation is from my own personal collection that I recorded while visiting the park.

I got to experience this attraction and absolutely loved it. Such a shame that it's gone now.

Scot Smith November 28, 2020 - 2:38 pm

I loved both versions of this. Sooooo disappointed when it was removed.

Tamese Christian November 28, 2020 - 2:38 pm

Guys head looks like the wizard of oz head 😂

Bismarck Peralta November 28, 2020 - 2:38 pm

Omg what a find! I remember this being my first Disney ride ever and my dad knew how scary it was ahead of time and walk out I remember being scared and amazed all at the same time! We went like mid 2000, a couple months after coming to the states from Nicaragua so imagine the culture shock I was having at 7 years old 😬

FreedomforHaiti November 28, 2020 - 2:38 pm

It's great that this attraction has been preserved. I never got to go on it. 🙁

AlphaTraveler1 November 28, 2020 - 2:38 pm

You know, I LOVED this version of the attraction. I used to go with so many friends and this used to scare the snot out of them! HAHAHAHA! That was so much fun. LOL. LIKE #32 Dave. Stay safe my friend. 😷👍

"Bring back life form, priority one, all other priorities are rescinded. You still don't understand what you're dealing with do you? Perfect organism. It's structural perfection is matched only by its hostility. I admire its purity. A survivor, unclouded by conscience, remorse, or delusions of morality."

16:48 Me: Rushes inside with a flamethrower after hearing Maintenance One aka "Brad" is attacked Brad!! Where are you?! Looking up at the dangling chains as the leaking droplets of water turn to blood drop on my face. Drops my flamethrower from being in shock BRAAAADDD!!!!

Happiness and Sweet Tea November 28, 2020 - 2:38 pm

I never experienced this. Too bad I never got to. Enjoyed watching this!

Cindy Lea November 28, 2020 - 2:38 pm

This attraction was AWESOME 👽I loved it❤️I think they should’ve used Sigourney Weaver as the spokesperson 🤣👽I do agree with another viewers comment about how hard and painful the shoulder pressing was🤣This attraction was sooo not Disney but cool and intense. Then they had to replace it with Stitch and now it’s gone😢Not sure what’s coming next🧐Thanks Disney Dave for this out of this world 🌎 video👍👍

maya November 28, 2020 - 2:38 pm

Omg! So cool to see it again! I remember loving it when i was 6 😂

Elevator, Alarm, Coaster and Arcade Productions Inc November 28, 2020 - 2:38 pm

Hey, Disney Dave! Which year did you film this attraction?

jake2213b November 28, 2020 - 2:38 pm

In 2012 I took my 4 year old granddaughter and we wen to see stitch great escape. WOW it was a mistake because I though they would have made it for kids to enjoy. She kept saying that stitch got blood on her. After that ever time we would see stitch we had to go away as fast as we could because it scared her. If I knew it was 90 percent the same as alien encounter we wouldn't have went to it.

Reverend Andy November 28, 2020 - 2:38 pm

I remember riding this and my main memory is how the shoulder harness locked down so tight it left bruises across my shoulders for days.

TOMORROWSPHERE November 28, 2020 - 2:38 pm

I was fortunate to be able to "ride" AE, I thought it was one of the most effective and scary things Disney had ever done! It is sad that it did not last. A little scare never hurts anyone! Awesome video
