What's next for 'Captain EO' at Disneyland?
Two years ago, fans lined up overnight to catch the first showing of Michael Jackson’s “Captain EO” movie after a 13-year absence, knowing that it would show for only for a limited time at Disneyland.
But Disney has yet to announce when “Captain EO” will depart and what will replace it, said John McClintock, a Disneyland Resort spokesman. Thursday marks the two-year anniversary of the movie’s return to Tomorrowland in Disneyland. See a story about the return of “Captain EO” at Disneyland.
At the time, Disney announced that the “Captain EO” return was for a limited run only, but officials never declared an end date. And they still haven’t.
Recently, employees at the attraction began handing out special “Captain EO” buttons to those in line for the movie at the Magic Eye Theater. But McClintock said the button handout is unrelated to the status of the show. The park had extra buttons and decided to hand them out.
Kelly Johns, the founder of Mousewait, a smartphone app that tracks wait times, said lines are rarely long for “Captain EO.” Usually, visitors have to wait a maximum of 20 minutes for the movie to finish before they can go into the theater, which fits between 500 and 600 people.
Last year, the Tokyo Disney Resort decided to keep “Captain EO” indefinitely. The movie also appears in Walt Disney World’s Epcot in Florida and Disneyland Paris.
Disneyland brought back the 1987 movie in 2010 following the death of pop-star Michael Jackson, the star of the 17-minute movie by executive producer George Lucas and director Francis Ford Coppola. After Jackson’s death, some fans asked for the return of the movie, which includes two Jackson songs and ran for about 10 years in Disneyland.

Last year, we ran a poll, asking readers what they would like to see replace “Captain EO.” As of Tuesday afternoon, 2,054 had responded with 359 wanting “Captain EO” to stay forever.

unForecast Crowd Prediction: With the weather warming up this week, expect the parks to be a little busier than normal in February. Also, many schools have some holidays coming up (Washington's Birthday, Lincoln's Birthday, Presidents Day), so it may be crowded on the next Mondays and Fridays in the next couple weeks. For this week, expect it to be moderately quiet with CIs in the 60s for Disneyland Park and CIs in the 50s for DCA. With Valentine's Day on Saturday, expect the restaurants resort wide to be very busy.
