It was open tonight for Moonlight Magic. I spoke to a DVC exec and mentioned how nice it was to see it open for the event. He smiled and said “Enjoy it while its still here.”

Didn't guest satisfaction ratings at Magic Kingdom actually *increase* as a result of the closure of Stitch, or was that just an urban legend?

Stitch I can say would be minimal impact due to the number of rides at MK, but Backlot Tour was a head-scratcher as well for as long as it was closed.

People would have said the same thing about Stitch. Or Backstage Tour.

Blog Mickey reporting this is going back into non operational on Jan. 5th https://blogmickey.com/2019/12/primeval-whirl-ending-seasonal-operation-this-week-at-disneys-animal-kingdom So, what's the deal? Why would they keep a ride closed at a park that needs more rides? It's obviously running OK.
