Two weeks ago on the blog we announced that Captain EO will be returning to the Disneyland Resort in February 2010.
Honey, I Shrunk The Audience

Today we have an update. “Honey, I Shrunk the Audience,” the show currently in Tomorrowland, will close January 4 so work can begin in the theater to prepare for the Captain’s return.

Check back on the Disney Parks Blog for additional updates.


  • So February is 8 days away. When can we expect an official announcement of the opening date?

  • Heather, is Captain EO still opening in February, or has it been delayed?

  • I am so excited!!!! But I would love to know the exact date in February, as I will be there the first week and would hate to miss out.

  • Has there been a confirmed opening date?! I Need to book time off from work if it’s during the week!!!

  • I was there opening day as a kid, can’t wait to go back!

  • I LOVE Captain EO! I wrote an email suggesting the return of this beloved Disneyland favorite, I’m glad to see its return.

  • Bring it to EPCOT! I’ve never seen Captain EO, but I’ve heard great things about it!

  • it needs to come back to Epcot,i loved this film sooooo much!!!!!!

  • Yeah!!!! We can’t wait to see it!!

  • I saw Captain Eo not long after it first opened, and it blew me away – the most exciting thing I’d ever seen at the time! Fantastic that it’s coming back – I hope to see it on my first trip back to the US (and Disneyland) in July this year. I’m excited enough to book a few nights at one of the Disney hotels! Wooo!

  • We are sooo excited that Captain EO will be brought back to Disneyland. It is an amazing performance by Michael Jackson and by far the best 3D presentation I’ve ever seen. Can’t wait to see it on our next visit to Disneyland!

  • It never should have left………..

    I am so glad that they are bringing Captain EO back….There are people who, if you mention Captain EO to them, they have no idea what you are talking about…they are in for a wonderful treat…so glad its coming back!

  • Captain EO was a great show and I hated to see it leave. Glad they decided to bring it back. Will be there in April and maybe again in December of 2010. Can’t wait!

  • PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE bring it back to FL too!

    I saw this on my very FIRST trip to Disney when I was 5. Dont let me miss out on this!
    I have to see this again!

  • The sad thing is, as soon as Michael Jackson died, one of the first things I thought was that Disneyland needs to bring back Captain EO! I knew with all the new buzz since Michael’s death that it would drum up alot of business for Disneyland. I wish I could take the credit (and some money!) for coming up with the idea! I am excited to take my son!

  • Nice, much better than HIStA

  • I can’t wait to go on it! I hope it doesn’t stay “temporarily”

  • Very cool.
    Disneyland is sure to get a lot of visitors for the return of Captain EO.

  • yyyeeeyyy

  • This is awesome beyond words. Thanks for doing this!

  • Yay! I am SO excited about Captain EO!! I loved it as a kid and I really want my kids to experience it, too.
    Will Disney give us a ballpark estimate of how long the “limited engagement” is?
    On various message boards I’ve heard 2 months and I’ve heard 2 years.
    A lot of people are changing their vacation dates just to make it to the park while Captain EO is there. I am trying to figure out if we will visit in March to make sure we don’t miss Captain EO or go in June so we can see World of Color too. We are traveling from out-of-state, so more than one trip in 2010 is, sadly, not feasible.
    Would you be willing to give us a clue? Pretty please? 🙂

  • Awesome! Can’t wait to see it once again. Thanks Uncle Walt!

  • I am soooo excited for its return! I think opening day calls for a “sick” day at work! 🙂 🙂 🙂

  • Please bring it back to EPCOT! I’m planning on being there in October…hope it’s there by then!

  • We want Captain EO at EPCOT!!! Bring it back, please!

  • Is this coming to EPCOT, too? I’d make a trip just for that!

  • Oh come on Disney we really need this to come back to EPCOT also PLEASE!!!!!!!!

  • I can’t see the photo.
