    Pros: A perfect example of Disney's alternative reality. Very believable.

    Summary: As with many visitors to Disney World, hubby and I just had to ride Space Mountain. Once we got off we were looking for something else to do in Tomorrowland. I saw a line forming for an attraction called The ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter. ... read more

    Summary: When I first went to Disneyworld with my family in 2003, I had heard about this ride and definately wanted to try it(even though at the time I was about 11 years old).  Before I went on it, I was freaking out.  I was sure this ride would be too ... read more

    Pros: NONE!
    Cons: Its lame, long lines, VERY Scary for Children

    Summary: This ride was not high on my to-do list, but my son wanted to ride it badly. So what the heck. THIS RIDE WAS TERRIBLE. VERY IMPORTANT- DO NOT take small children under the age of 10 on this ride. It WILL give them nightmares for weeks. First off, ... read more

    Pros: Very realistic alien encounter
    Cons: Younger children would have nightmares

    Summary: My husband and I stayed at the Magic Kingdom for our anniversary two years ago. When you visit during the month of December the park is fairly light with traffic, so you are able to go on every ride you would like. We noticed this particular ... read more

    Pros: Very good, original idea.
    Cons: Lame animatronic creature. Not the least bit scary to anyone over 12.

    Summary: NOTE: This attraction is currently now known as Stitch's Great Escape. It's the same basic attraction, and still just as awful. "The ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter" is an attraction that is supposed to appeal to the guests senses in ... read more

    Pros: Finally, something designed for adults at the Magic Kingdom
    Cons: The scariest attraction in the "world."

    Summary: My husband and I just got back from our honeymoon. We chose to spend a week at Walt Disney World and of course, now that I’m back and married, I have plenty of free time to write Epinions. No more wedding planning for me! We arrived at the ... read more

    Pros: Nothing! All cons
    Cons: Scared the @#$% out of me and my sister. The worst attraction at WDW.

    Summary: Pardon my french! @#$&^%**&*&*((&*^&%& *((&*(^& !!! It felt good to say that. When I first saw this attraction I thought it was going to be some mediocre sharp-turn rollercoaster in the dark ride. But it wasn't it was a stupid thing where ... read more

    Pros: Outstanding effects, Plays with you senses, creepy.
    Cons: Not for those with weak hearts or pregnant. TOO SCARY FOR CHILDREN AND SOME ADULTS

    Summary: Long before my Honeymoon I knew of this attraction. Several of my friends went down to Disney World and all came back recommending that I check this out. They all know I like horror films as well as thrill rides and knowing that they warned me not to ... read more

    Pros: Mind-blowing technology, a remarkably realistic experience, excellent themeing
    Cons: A bit scary for some, stupid jokes

    Summary: Alien Encounter was the figurehead of the New Tomorrowland that premiered some five years ago. This attraction put to rest all stipulation that Disney couldn't pull off a thoroughly scary ride. Allegedly, Eisner vetoed the original draft of this ... read more

    Pros: Very exciting, gives an adrenaline rush

    Pros: A fun break from the typical Disney ride.
    Cons: Not as scary as the guidebooks claim.

    Summary: I read a lot of hype about this very "non Disney" attraction. The words definitely not for kids and terrifying come to mind. Although it's not for kids it's not very terrifying. This attraction is scary in a claustrophobic sense. You are ... read more

    Pros: Reasonable waiting time, high scare factor, realistic
    Cons: Uncomfortable harness, kids will probably be very frightened

    Summary: Whenever we’ve gone to Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, the first section we visit is Tomorrowland. This year we did the same and right after riding Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin, I headed for an attraction I’ve never tried before, The ... read more

    Pros: Scary!, Plot brings you into the story, great show!
    Cons: Not for young children

    Summary: My brother and I went to this ride, expecting to be bored out of our minds. Now keep in mind I am in my mid 20's and my brother is in his mid 30's. After waiting in line for about 20 minutes, while watching the cute presentations and "News Shows" about ... read more

    Pros: Disney's Scariest Attraction
    Cons: Once you've done it - you've done it

    Summary: Alien Encounter is a very "immersive" and "dark" attraction, best suited for older kids. Based somewhat on the concept of the creature in "alien", this atrraction begins with an entertaining pre-show. The real action is inside. Once strapped ... read more

    Pros: Very fun. No other ride like it in the Disney parks.
    Cons: Little to no repeat value.

    Summary: The ExtraTERRORestial Alien Encounter in The Magic Kingdom's Tomorrowland is quite an experience to say the least. However, after riding/viewing it three or four times, it grows old. When this ride first opened, the wait time was horrible and ... read more

    Pros: Fun and exciting!
    Cons: A lot of darkness!

    Summary: The title might seem like I do not like this attraction but I do. The only problem I have with it is that a lot of the time you are in the dark (but it does give a better effect). I enjoy this attraction, The Extraterrorestial Alien Encounter, every time ... read more

    Cons: Not scary enough for most adults, way too scary for most children

    Summary: The ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter is one of those Disney attractions that is pretty good for the most part, but once its over, you just can't help yourself but ask "What was the point?" Introduction The way the attraction is ... read more

    Pros: A thrilling and scary ride that doesn't involve a coaster.
    Cons: Might be too scary for kids.

    Summary: As I have said in other Disney opinions I don't like roller coasters which is one reason why I liked this ride,it's scary and thrilling without being on a roller coaster with sudden drops or hills. I enjoy being scared (for short periods of time) and ... read more
