  • Captain EO would make this perfect but Im sure Im still gonna have a good time especially with Videopolis OMG

  • Can’t do it unless Captain EO is revived.

  • YALL NEED TO BRING CAPTAIN EO!!!!!!! I hope you consider in putting it back up for 80’s nite!!! ALOT of Disneylanders are/were expecting it for this night especially!!

  • I called today about Rise of the Resistance during this event, and they said everything is open except that ride. 🙁

  • This might be a good time to go on Rise of the Resistance!

  • No Starcade? No original Star Tours video? NO CAPTAIN EO?! Can you really call this an 80’s night with these absences? I SAID GOOD DAY, SIR!

    (But seriously, glad to see Disney finally doing this theme, and I’m sorry I won’t be able to attend! Although not as sorry as I’d be if you’d included any of those three things. :D)
