* ChristmasRushed: The attraction opened just thirteen months after its predecessor closed. Having such a short development time really didn't help this attraction.

* PropRecycling: This ride reused a lot of components from its predecessor, the [=ExtraTERRORestrial=] Alien Encounter, from Skippy to the show theaters. Many of the X-S Tech logos survived the transformation, which gives you an idea of how quickly construction went. Speaking of Skippy, it should be noted that the "doughnut guy" was actually the previous deformed Skippy (rattled by the first teleportation in Alien Encounter's pre-show) [[DecompositeCharacter repurposed as a new character]], while pre-teleportation Skippy was the hoodlum in for "jaywalking between the moons of Jupiter".

* SeriesHiatus: For a certain definition of "series". The ride's last operating period to date ended on January 6, 2018, and no new operating dates are planned as to date, causing much online dilemma over the attraction's fate. Leaked photographs in late 2018 showed several of the Audio-Animatronics, including one of the two Stitch Audio-Animatronics, being dismantled, suggesting that the ride has been canned permanently, and more recently in February 2020, videos have surfaced that the theater space [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ku3CKnV8ibw is now being used as a meeting room.]] In March 2020, it was reported that Disney has filed a notice of commencement to Orange County, Florida stating their intention to do interior demolition work at 1326 Magic Kingdom Drive, the mailing address of the building that the attraction is in. Regardless, Disney hasn't officially commented on the matter, simply calling it "temporarily closed" on its official website. Because of this, its Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} article still lists its operation status as "Operating" rather than "Closed" (and the page is semi-protected to prevent prospective editors from changing it, with a ''long'' notice against changing it hidden in the page's source text).
