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. See photos of the return of “Captain EO” by clicking on the photo, left.
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 (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. Automated crowd prediction calendars are worthless--the UNFORECAST is where it's at!
Update for the week of Monday, August 25th:
Park hours: DL (9am-10pm weekdays, 9am-12am weekends); DCA (9am-9pm weekdays, 9am-10pm weekends). Since the parks are closing earlier during the week, Fantasmic will only be shown Friday-Sunday, World of Color will be shown at 9pm and the "Magical!" fireworks will be shown at 9:25pm daily (weather permitting).
FYI: this is a last full week to participate in "Legends of Frontierland" in Frontierland as it concludes on Monday, September 1st. Also, the Adventure Trading Company's last day in the jungle will be Monday, August 25 and will move onto a new adventure, so make sure to catch them!
unForecast Crowd Prediction: Expect it to be quiet to moderately busy this week as many schools go back this week, but there's also still quite a few people getting their end of summer vacation in at the Resort before school starts after Labor Day for them. But, reminder that this weekend is the Disneyland Half Marathon, so expect crowds to pick up Thursday and/or Friday as runners and their families come in for this weekend's events. And make sure to keep an eye out for any road closures late Saturday night to mid Sunday morning if you are coming to the Resort this coming weekend!
July was arguably one of the slowest months of the year (some say the Sunday on Independence Day Weekend was the slowest day of the year). However, we saw crowd levels rise Sat Aug 2, and they've been steady through today (Aug 5). With the Socal passes coming good Aug 18, we should see good crowds throughout the end of the month. - Admin Aug 5, 2014 2:23PM
New "Music of Nashville" event coming to the Big Thunder Ranch Jamboree running on weekends, starting on July 18. To read more info: click here. - BaseballMickey_CM Jul 9, 2014 11:04AM
So far this summer, Saturdays have been the quietest days of the week due to the Annual Passholder block outs. Today, wait times weren't too bad in both parks, with crowd indexes hovering around 60-70 at DL and 50-60 in DCA. - BaseballMickey_CM Jun 28, 2014 11:24PM
