UPDATED: 'Captain EO' returns to Disneyland February 2010!

As we have been speaking about for months, today it became official. 'Captain EO' will return to Disneyland for a limited engagement in February 2010. Here is what the official release states:

Twenty-three years ago, at the height of his phenomenal entertainment career, Michael Jackson joined forces with Disney to create “Captain EO,” a groundbreaking 17-minute 3D film experience.

We are excited to confirm that the classic musical spectacular that thrilled Disneyland park guests from 1986 – 1997, will return for an exclusive, limited engagement at Disneyland park beginning in February 2010!

The attraction’s return to Tomorrowland will provide new audiences the opportunity to experience the original 3D production for the very first time, as well as a nostalgic look back for longtime fans wanting to see “The King of Pop” in a rare performance created for the big-screen, just one more time.

Honey I Shrunk The Audience” will be closing sometime in the next few weeks to make way for the Captain’s return.

Check back here for more details on “Captain EO.”

Is anyone else excited about this, or is it just me?

Who has the map?!?!


A very reliable source has told POParitaville that 'Captain EO' will be opening around February 12th (Valentine's weekend). This is confirmed by the employee Main Gate Passes being blocked out during this time. These are passes that Cast Member's receive from the company to bring their guests into the Disney parks. Usually the block outs are for major holidays, or times when they expect a high guest turnout. These can be updated at virtually any time. And they are now blocked this weekend. Expect an official announcement from the Mouse soon.
