Good morning!
This day in Disney history September 18th, 1986: Captain EO opened in Disneyland! (six days after it opened at EPCOT Center).

The new theater for Captain EO replaced the Space Stage outdoor theater, shown below in a map from 1982:

map 1

Here is a map from 1987, notice anything else different? ;)

map 2

Captain EO, is a 3-D, 70mm, Sci-fi, fantasy, musical movie attraction staring Michael Jackson. Directed by Francis Ford Coppola and excecutive-produced by George Lucas. The movie tells the story of Captain EO (Jackson) and his ragtag crew of space travelers as they go on a mission to save the World from the evil queen. The seventeen-minute film cost an estimated $30 million to produce.  At this time it was the most expensive film ever produced on a per-minute basis!

After a run of over ten years at Disneyland, the crowds thinned out and Captain EO closed quietly in April, 1997.

In May 1998, the former Magic Eye Theater became the 3-D movie Honey, I Shrunk the Audience, (based on the 1989 film "Honey I shrunk the Kids").  By 2009 Honey I Shrunk the Audience lost it's popularity as well. This didn't go un noticed by Disney executives. In September of 2009, the theater was temporarily closed.

On December 18th, 2009, The Disney parks Blog announced that Captain EO would make it's return beginning in February 2010!
Captain EO DID indeed reopened at Disneyland on February 23, 2010!
EeeeeHeeeee!

To watch scenes from the 1986 premier:

 
I'm also including a TV special about the making of the film hosted by Whoopie Goldberg:



Do you love Captain EO? Hate it? Why? Do you have a favorite part of the show?

Thanks for reading and watching! Hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!

I love Captain EO, cheesy or not. Great music. And I love when the Supreme leader say: You? Think me beautiful? And Hooter always makes me laugh! - erinten  539.9 #383 10:50AM
Hooter!!!! ::MJ voice:: - APirateslifeforme31  170.3 #2408 11:16AM
I hear it! πŸ˜„ - erinten  539.9 #383 12:18PM
I SO agree with you! Plus my kiddos LOVE it! "turn them into trashcans!" - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 3:15PM

"C'ya later trash cans!" - APirateslifeforme31  170.3 #2408 9:06PM
BEST POST EVER!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚Thank you so much for this! I of course remember the first release and I was at the reopening on 2/23/2010 and saw some of the original cast members (Idee- Dee Lee CarringtonΒ and Odee- Cindy Sorenson)and dancers and even met Tony Baxter and took a picture with him. Bought some EO shirts and buttons but didn't watch it that day! Crazy right? I got through the turnstile and had my glasses and decided I couldn't do it with out my soon to be hubby. He gets such a kick out of watching me get excited about things and I couldn't deprive him of this. We watched it a few days later where I freaked out and cried and screamed and sang...you catch my drift. LOL I love Captain EO and pray they release it on bluray! Favorite part? When Michael Jackson rises up and when he moonwalks! 😍😍😍😍I want MJ saying Hooter! as my ring tone. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - Cinderella_Schnooks  3370.7 #42 4:06PM
Well now that I know you're such a EO fan I hope I get to enjoy it with you before it's gone! Such a cute story! I LOVE the videos you post on IG when you are excited about something and your hubby gets excited too! You two make me laugh! I hope they release EO on BluRay too! Excellent choice for a favorite part as well! Now I'm seriously jonesin' for a DL trip! ::sigh:: Thanks MrsSchnooks! - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 6:59AM
Please add me to this^^^ I would love an EO 2.0 meetup. We unfortunately could not make the last one! - UndefinedEeyore  201.8 #1970 8:31AM
So happy that I shared this throwback gem with my girls earlier this year.  Walking out my little six-year-old exuberantly proclaimed that "Michael Jackson really WAS cool!"  :-) - cmogo  74.4 #4054 1:06PM
"exuberantly" LOVE that word! Your six year old SO gets it! Wish I could give her a high five right now! - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 3:17PM
I love all things Michael Jackson so I love cpt EO. And honey I shrunk the audience was sooo cool!  as a kid I remember having so much fun watching both of those shows!!! Thanks Duchess! πŸ˜‰ - missariel33  2115.5 #72 2:41PM
Oh and my favorite part of captain EO is "another part of me" it's very thriller-esque!  - missariel33  2115.5 #72 2:43PM
EeeEee! I'm so hoping that I can enjoy this attraction before it's gone with you and @MrsSchnooks ! I had no idea y'all were EO fans too! Weeee! Thanks missariel33! - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 7:13AM
Oh goodness! The moustaches πŸ‘¨πŸ‘¨πŸ‘¨in the first vid - so funny! Love Captain EO first time around and was happy that they brought it back. Cheesy? Maybe so. But his lil rainbow shirt changed it all. A glimmer of hope. I like the stop motion filming when the robot becomes the instruments. Now you would see computer animation. Good stuff here. Thanks! - misschurro  6374.4 #17 3:33PM
bhahahahahahs! Yes those stashes were awesome right?! AMEN sister! Bring on the rainbows and happy cheese! LOVE IT! Good choice for a favorite! Thanks for taking the time! ((hugs)) - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 7:01AM
LOVE CAPTAIN EO! I got shushed a few times from a random lady while I was singing along. I was singing so loud I never heard her. It wasn't until TheNewTrent was embarrassed to be with me that I caught on what was going on lol. - aprilinjune4  483.5 #439 3:45PM
AWESOME!!!! - Cinderella_Schnooks  3370.7 #42 9:22PM
Haha! I love it! I usually get shushed with my eldest daughter too! We learned to sit by ourselves and then we can be as loud as we want. :) - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 7:02AM
Love this show but not for me. It's because my mini is OBSESSED with Mj! Like, thinks about him everyday, went to his memorial, plays his RECORDS and cried for weeks when he passed. Seeing her thoroughly enjoy every minute of this show makes me appreciate it. Will be so sad to see it go. - UndefinedEeyore  201.8 #1970 8:01PM
Awe! Bet she knows EVERY SINGLE word huh?! I'll be sad to see it go as well. Thanks for sharing that! - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 7:02AM
AND dance moves! Yup she's one of those!! Lol! - UndefinedEeyore  201.8 #1970 8:24AM
I love Captain EO! I thought it was the coolest thing when it first came out. I was really happy that they brought it back and have kept it for the last few years, but so many years, it did seem cheesy to me too. Now that I know it might be leaving very soon, I've started to appreciate it all over again. I've been going to watch it every trip now. - PrincessTiannaBeignet  335.6 #723 11:54PM
I'm with you! I plan to visit it ASAP, and every trip till it's gone. It'll always be cheesy but still fun! - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 7:04AM
I never saw captain eo willingly. It took its entire run to be dragged in there by some strong arm mw woman. I can say at least watched it once .....hahaha and if you don't remeber that happening search the lounge for a good laugh => - pikarich  5239.1 #22 12:05AM
::giggles:: I need to look that up again. Fun times! Glad you watched it, even if you were dragged there! - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 7:17AM
eeh hee - pikarich  5239.1 #22 7:47AM
What??  Stop Acting Like Someone Had U BY The Legs And Literally Dragged U In There!  lol - QueenEmilizle  390.5 #578 8:44AM

::giggles with you:: - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 7:04AM
Thanks for the history! Captain EO dies have its Star Wars reference so it works as Star Tours' neighbor! Haven't seen it since the 80s , loved it then, but need 2 revisit it to see how it plays now! Its on the "Something New Next Time" bucket list! - JediCOTA  93.4 #3691 9:53AM
I agree! Hope you get to enjoy it before it's gone! - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 7:05AM
Thank you for the Disney history today.  I look forward to your post every day. It's always excellently done. I liked Capt. EO, and  still do. Not just because of Michael Jackson and his singing and dancing. Because of the message, that the world can be changed.✌✌✌✌✌and ❀❀❀ and for you🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈  - Midasgold  633.3 #319 9:54AM
Awe! Midasgold you're always so kind! I'm really happy you like these. Means a lot to me that you always tell me so! THANKS! Oh and LOVE the boons! :D YES! The world CAN BE changed! Woooooo! - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 7:07AM
This is my favorite spot to sit, relax, cool down and get away from the crowds.  I enjoy this attraction because it is a blast to the past.  Just Another Part of Me is  one of my fave MJ songs.  I walk out of there singing the song out loud every single time.  I will miss this attraction when it's gone. - Witchie77  374.5 #607 9:55AM
It IS a great place to cool off and relax! I walk out singing every time too! It will be a sad day, buy like @MrsSchnooks said, maybe Disney will release it on BluRay?! ::crosses fingers:: - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 7:08AM
I love this attraction! So glad they brought it back. It's so cheesy now but that makes it even more splendidly awesome!  - KelstersInc2319  60.2 #4433 10:04AM
teehee! I couldn't agree more! ::high fives:: - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 7:09AM
I agree with everything everyone else said  - dboleman  12.5 #9613 10:19AM
YES! ::high fives you:: - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 7:09AM
Yes, it's cheesy, and outdated, but I love MJ! Thanks again Duchess! - 7mouskedoodles  371.6 #613 11:02AM
Me too! Thank YOU! - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 7:09AM
I laugh because a friend of mine who is an Air Force officer was a host for EO when I was assigned to Star Tours... - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #185 11:03AM
hehe, bet that was a fun job! Did you always picture him wearing the glasses?! ;) - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 7:11AM
No but I always ask him if he's wearing earplugs because he had them on for his whole shift that summer! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #185 7:42AM
awe! I take it he isn't a MJ fan! LOL Poor guy! - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 7:44AM
Actually he like the attraction but the noise level was quite high so if he wanted to keep his hearing for after hours he wore earplugs... - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #185 1:48PM
I love EO! I'm so sad that I prob won't make it before they close it for the new star wars.... whatever that they're gonna announce. Cheesy 1980s amazingness... I salute you. You will always hold a special place in my heart Captain EO <3 - Poisen_Ivy  315.2 #826 12:22PM
I so agree! Awe! Hope you get the chance to see it one more time! - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 7:12AM

::high five:: for 80's baby! I'm grateful to have shared it with my kiddos as well. My eldest LOVES it! I'll be sad as well. It's just another part of me! EeeEee! - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 7:14AM

AWE!!! You don't thing you'll be back to the park before it's gone?! This makes me sad! - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 7:15AM

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

Super Bowl unFORECAST for the week of Feb 1, 2016
Everyone always asks if it will be busy on Super Bowl Sunday. Historically the answer is always YES, and this Sunday should be no exception. Since last week, weekdays have been surprisingly slow (very low crowds). We expect more of the same this week, until Friday. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the high 60s (approx 60% capacity), and it jumped a little during Super Bowl weekend. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times. Have a great week! - Admin Feb 1, 2016 12:06PM



We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  615.1 #331 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.5 #7244 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  438.4 #500 7:32AM
I love these posts!  I do have a question/request/suggestion...is there a way to only show the 3-4 most recent posts?  It's a lot to scroll through. @@Admin - TiggersAndTinks  171.2 #2390 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  249.4 #1357 5:04PM
