‘Stitch Interactive’? Your opinion counts…

Thursday, 21st June 2007 at 17:08

ImageA new feature on the official Disneyland Resort Paris website has been causing a bit of a stir in the past few days, allowing visitors to help decide the name of the new interactive Stitch attraction at Walt Disney Studios Park - formerly referred to as 'Stitch Encounter' from its original Hong Kong Disneyland name. This is your chance to help name the new studio attraction!,

We mentioned in the last update on Stitch Encounter that the original name of the Hong Kong import was beginning to be lost in the various press releases and previews given so far, reverting to a temporary “Stitch interactive attraction” tagline, with even the Walt Disney Television Studios name still conserved on the latest park maps.

With the launch of this new online survey, though, ‘Stitch Encounter‘ appears to be out of the picture entirely, in favour of three brand new name ideas:

– Stitch Interactive
The entire basis of the attraction is the ability to interact in real-time with Stitch, so this name would certainly give first-timers an idea of the attraction’s aim.
– Stitch Live
On the other hand, with the TV-studio theme, this one could be a good way to put across the story of the live satellite link-up to outer space with one snappy four-letter word.
– Stitch
Short and simple – just the little blue alien’s name. This is what most of us will call it in conversation when it opens anyway, but is it too non-descript for an official title?

The survey opens in a pop-up window, and first asks the visitor what country they’re from, whether they’ve visited Disneyland Resort Paris before and if they have any children, which age groups they fall into.

Next, you’re introduced to the attraction concept:

“A totally new amazing and interactive attraction for the whole family will open at Disneyland Resort Paris. The Disney Character, Sttich, from the popular film Lilo & Stitch, will play, joke and will even have a conversation with you. This is a first-of-its-kind, real-time animated interaction.

“We have several ideas for the name of this attraction and we should like to have your opinion.”

Each of the three names appears on separate pages, and you’re asked to vote between 1 (do not like it at all) and 10 (like it very much) as to how much you’d like it to become the final name.

Finally, you’re asked “And if you had to choose only one name for this new attraction, which do you prefer?”, with the options of the three names or, if you’re thoroughly not impressed with their choices – “none of them”.

The survey originally opened last week, before it was promptly closed a few days later with the message “This survey has already closed, thank you for your interest.” However, today the survey is once again open for votes, so if you missed it just before the weekend – you’ve still got time to have your say!

This isn’t the first time Disneyland Resort Paris has asked for feedback on the naming of a new attraction. In March-2005, they infamously launched a survey which provided four brand new names for the project then already known as Buzz Lightyear’s Laser Blast. Those names were, in no particular order: Buzz Lightyear’s Cosmic Adventure, Buzz Lightyear’s Cosmic Blast, Buzz Lightyear’s Intergalactic Adventure, Buzz Lightyear’s Space Adventure.

Needless to say, the names were met with immediate disappointment from fans who much prefered the existing “Laser Blast” name. This survey luckily provided an extra comments box, allowing fans to register their thoughts with more depth and suggest once again the “Laser Blast” title. Although “Space Adventure” was apparently the chosen title, and used on the very first press release for the attraction, the name was suddenly changed just a few months later to… Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast.

So, your opinion really can count with this new attraction! The chance to help name a new attraction doesn’t come very often, but what do you think to those names? Let us know in the comments below which you chose, and also – if you’ve got any bright ideas – what other names you could have come up with. You never know what they’ll choose…

  • woo, I did this a couple of days ago. I generally don’t like ‘Stitch Live’ as it sounds too ‘man standing in a suit’ like meet ‘n’ greets. It’s a bit of a similar case with ‘Stitch Encounter’ I guess. I favour ‘Stitch’ out of the three but if it was up to me I’d go for ‘Stitch: Alien Encounter’

  • I am really looking forward to this attraction. Turtle Talk (where Crush from Finding Nemo talks to the audience) was one of my favorite attractions at Walt Disney World. I like “Stitch Live” as that best describes the new attraction. It will be like Stitch is in a live (not pre-recorded) performance. I don’t like “Stitch Interactive” as it implies that it is some sort of interactive game, like Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast.

  • Turtle Talk in Anaheim was one of my favorites and if Stitch ends up in the same kind of version…It will really rock the Studios.

    If you ask me…the sooner the better (in comparising to what we have in that building now)…
