Published: March 5, 2010 at 1:04 AMI made the second day crowd...not much of one...wanted to see if I remembered the great EO. The theater effects were a plus. The audience cheered when MJ emerged on screen (I heard that some crowds actually cried). The film is dated, the costumes, hairdos, music, etc. It was as I remembered from when I took my kids way back when. I had forgotten that Francis Ford Coppola directed this effort and I think that Angelica Huston really steals the show. It brings back memories, both good and bad, and I agree it will not be there for the long run.
Published: March 5, 2010 at 3:32 AMThey can't replace it with Mickey's PhilharMagic because that movie doesn't fit the theme of Tommorrowland in the slightest. It's time to bring in a new attraction for that theatre, unless they put in a souped up version of MILF; maybe in 3D?

Philharmagic wouldn't fit in the Magic Eye theater. It is far too small for the 180 degree screens. Laugh floor would probably fit though. Unfortunately, neither is a thematic fit for Tomorrowland, and if there is one thing Tomorrowland needs it is more rides about the future and fewer attempts to just fit a ride from some other park in there.

Published: March 5, 2010 at 12:30 PMI belive EO will be there after the Holiday season before it goes down, as for its replacement? PhilharMagic is awesome but the screen and theme dont fit in Tomorrowland. Monsters inc laugh floor isn't a good idea and well there just isn't too much space there to put a ride of any sort. My bet is HISTA returns for a couple more years.
Published: March 5, 2010 at 4:36 PMThey should bring this back to Epcot, too. A lot of people, like me, live closer to Disney World. Plus, Philharmagic doesn't belong in Tomorrowland.

Either way, I'd say keep the show for at least the rest of the year as I think it's a waste to make that Captain EO Tribute sign for just a few months.
