I'm sad to see Captain EO closing I never made it there either (I always wanted to but cant afford to travel) its memory lives in my heart.
Can someone confirm where Captain EO remains open then?
It's now definitely closed in Paris, it's last performance being Sunday.
What of the others?
I think Atlas may have meant that it "wouldn't help" in regard to making it look more "recent", not help it "be better". As fans, I'm sure it holds a special place in all our hearts (I personally love it). From a business perspective though, it's gonna need some "freshening up" if Disney wants it draw in a new crowd, as younger crowds just simply aren't as nostalgic. If it's not gonna be a draw, it's not gonna make money and they're not gonna keep it around. And Disneyland isn't gonna keep an attraction just cuz a small percentage of their park-goers have a soft spot for it; they're gonna put something in it's place that promises to pull more visitors/merch sales. That's not a bad thing, just is what it is.
I hope they keep it going just a bit longer (if not a lot longer lol), but the changing of the guard is inevitable...
Anaheim and Disney World..
Don't know about Tokyo Disney and China...
Too bad I don't have a bunch of cash and a mini van or something. I'd say MJFam roadtrip to see Eo!
But Disney tickets are seriously expensive. I went to Disney World in 2011 with my high school band and it was $650 for the trip (hotel, food and tickets). We had discounted tickets since we were performing for Disney. They are about $300 a day for the tickets we had.
Anyone know then when it closes in Anaheim or Orlando?
I don't know b/c I don't think they have announced it yet but the EO souvenirs aren't being sold there at Mouse Gear (the store at Epcot) except for a small pin (no t-shirts, etc), so I think it's a hint.
I wish somehow they could release Captain EO as a DVD available to all.
Where is love for this? Closing makes it sad for us as we are all fans. The magic always do continue!
I'm going Disneyworld in September just hope its still showing.
Even though i've seen it on youtube it just isnt the same as seeing it at Epcot
The special effects in this movie looked lousy to me even back in the nineties when I first saw it... They should have made a digitally remastered redux for Imax 3D, but instead they left it as is with the embarrassing especial effects... Lucas did a great job restoring the original Star Wars trilogy back in the late nineties. He could have made an amazing job with Captain E.O with today's technology...
