  • [Question] How long do you think Caption EO will last?

    Disney has said that Captain EO will return to Disneyland for a "limited engagement." I think it's safe to assume that it will certainly be a popular attraction. But how popular? How long do you think the show will actually remain at DL? Will the "limited engagement" be for only a few months? A year? Many years?

    I heard it would be around ranging from 3 months to 5 years. It's not confirmed yet.

      Probably 1 or 2 years.
      I really think EO's back as a memorial to Micheal and so WDI can dream a watchable replacement for HIstA.
      Don't think of a gun as a weapon.
      Think of it as a third arm that magically
      shoots bullets!

        I'm looking forward to seeing it on the big screen with its full effects. I also hope that whatever comes after it is extra awesome! Can't wait to hear about it...

          I'm guessing it'll be here for the spring and the summer season and then it'll go away into yesterland again. But depending on the ensuring popularity it'll get when it reopens, it might last a bit longer.

            I hope it last long enough for both the new generation to enjoy as well as bring soem nostaliga to those who saw it when it first came out

              Expect a two hour wait when it first opens....Yikes!

                  My guess is one year. It does seem like a fill in until they (WDI) can figure out what to put in the Magic Eye.

                      I think it's great they brought something to replace HISTA. The queue for it is a ghost town you would think the theater is closed. If it weren't for the bored CM waiting around you wouldn't realize it was open. I've even overheard bored CMs talk to themselves using the PA system at HISTA to pass the time.

                        I actually wonder if WOC may help EO stay open. I mean, true, it's an older show, but it could help eat some crowds who can't do WOC or Fantasmic!. Little attendence bumps always help.

                          That's a good point.
                          The problem is, by the time WOC comes out, I feel like EO might have lot a lot of its novelty value already.

                          The good thing about WOC is that the only people who will be watching it are AP holders, and the few people who actually invest in Park Hopper tickets (typically families visiting from out of town for several days)

                          But you could be right, maybe EO will serve as an alternative for some people. Or for people who actually want to sit in comfortable seats, not the ground haha.

                            Personally I think this is a blessing in disguise. It will make all the Michael Jackson fans happy, while at the same time delivering a slice of nostalgia from the 80's, for all of us who remember. And all the while, giving imagineers a nice buffer to work with putting the finishing touches on whatever lovely show/(attraction?) they have come up with to replace HISTA.

                                I was going to say "About 17 minutes too long," But Dick Shawn is on screen for a couple minutes.

                                But seriously, it'll take a couple years to make a new show to put into the Kodak; it takes time to come up with a novel reason to have a 3D character sneeze in your face.

                                  How about "H1N1: The Show"
                                  A virtual journey into what it feels like to catch the swine flu.
                                  That'll scare people into being a little more germ conscious around the park.

                                    I can see the show running through summer and them reinstalling a show to open by the Christmas season.

                                      Hopefully a full year. I enjoyed it as a kid and I wouldn't mind seeing it again. The only thing wrong with this scenario is that it's located in Tomorrowland....and Captain EO is a bit of NOSTALGIA from the 80s.....What the hell is going on?
