Disneyland's Captain EO returns Feb. 23
Disneyland made it official today: Captain EO
, the 3-D musical starring the late Michael Jackson (that's still weird to type), will return to Tomorrowland's Magic Eye Theater on Tuesday, Feb. 23 for an indefinite run.
The show replaces the now-closed Honey, I Shrunk the Audience.
Was at the park today and volunteared to be interview by Disney for the upcoming return of Captain EO. They were grabbing anyone who is a fan of EO. I tried to barter with them and get information about a soft open, but the lady was very tough to break.
I never saw Captain EO and I avoid watching any youtube clips or anything like that so i dont spoil the initial experience. From what I've heard the show is a bit weird and may show obvious signs of age, so it will be interesting to see how this is judged by today's standards.
I think it will be there for the Campiness of it all!
At least I don't have to deal with Honey I Shrunk The Audience... It's my least favorite thing in Disneyland.
I am so thrilled that Captain EO is returning period. I only got to see it once at Epcot back in 1993. When i went back to Epcot a few years later and I heard it was closed permanently, I was very upset because its a great 3-d movie....much better than Honey, I Shrunk The Audience. Now I know it says returning to "Disneyland" but I have hope that it will return to Epcot too as I live down in Florida so it would be more difficult to get to see it at Disneyland.
