  • [Question] Captain EO Dream Squad?

    Am I understanding these pictures correctly that Tokyo is having something similar to the "Dream Squad" right now, only they're dressed up as Captain Eo? Was this a one time thing?:P Was it even sponsored by Tokyo Disneyland or something from an outside party? It's awesome =D

      I think that it might have been for Halloween... and they wanted to be a Dream Squad? Those cards looks homemade. Cool pics and great costumes!

        My first thought was Halloween and it's possible but I believe the picture was taken November 4th and halloween stuff is over.

              Pretty sure it's still during the Halloween period; the previous day's blog entry still shows the Halloween Parade in all its glory.

              Anyway, the "Dream Ticket" is a reference to the "Over the Waves" show from TDS. From what I can figure, there was a group cosplaying as the OtW cast, and they were passing out tickets to others. Hence Captain EO and Shiriki Utundu with tickets. I also like the pic: "randomly, an industrial waste processor robot helped fasten a head screw."

                  It's from Halloween and the tickets are made to look like the ones from the DisneySea show which you can see the costumes for a few pictures down from the Captain EO pics! So cool!

                    Just to add something else... There is NO tacky "Year of Million Dreams" campaign at all at TDR. I think OLC does not have to lower themselves to crap like that just because the quality of the parks alone should carry them well financially. So no, what you saw there is an example of how elaborate some japanese fans can get when they dress up in costume for TDL's Halloween.

                    Also, the Shiriki Utundu ears is just one item in a very extensive Shiriki merchandise line now on sale at TDS.

                      There's a difference between being tacky and basing your entire nation-wide promotional campaign on the chance that you might show up and win a "dream" and just having random prizes given out as part of another more grander promotion. I wasn't implying they were doing anything tacky and the OLC does not have to lower itself to constantly reminding people of how much better their parks are than the ones in the U.S. they can let the quality of their parks speak for themselves, and so should you.

                        TDLFAN, what other kinds of Shiriki merch do they have? I'm just curious. He is one freaky looking character.

                            At no moment did I think you were implying anything. The fact that I find the "Million of year dreams" campaign tacky is my opinion on it, and that comment was not meant for you to get all defensive about.


                            they can let the quality of their parks speak for themselves, and so should you.
                            If I did that, then ignorance about TDR and OLC's standards would continue to be rampant among US fans. I am here to remind people that Disney can and should do better and for that, I won't apologize.

                                You know, I remember seeing the Fuzzballs in the stores at the time of Captain EO, and they didn't seem very well made--this one in the photos is adorable! I totally want one of those.
