    WHat to do with captain EO

    Okay lets face it this Tommorwland overhaul cant come fast enough and everyone on micechat can agree on that! we all have different ideas of what should and should not be done. I know someone will mention something about the people mover during this thread but anyway, I was never a big fan of Captain EO but some people were and that's fine but it was only supposed to be here for a short time.....its been 3 years,ok it had a cute little run! I think its time to say goodbye. Micheal R.I.P. plus Captain EO has nothing to do with "tommorow". Anyway what do you guys think we do with this space? another movie? maybe Avatar based or star wars? maybe a motion simulator ride with tons of vehicles in front of a giant screen like in universal studios? on your mark...get set....discuss

    They could turn it into trash cans.

    haha I see what you did there.

    Anyways, if they put in a Tron 4D movie I would definitely go see it.

    In what way do Avatar and Star Wars have more to do with "tomorrow" than Captain EO?

    Re: WHat to do with captain EO

    I would like to see the theater revert back to an open auditorium for live music and shows. From 1977 to 1986, that area was known as the Space Stage (I think). I have fond memories dancing to the latest disco music back in 1979. Heck, I'd like to see the original speed-ramp restored as well :-)

    If TL gets a full overhaul, I hope it becomes an area for a ride, not another 3D show.

    Re: WHat to do with captain EO

    In all seriousness, I like Captain EO, but I agree it's time for something new. I don't really want to see it replaced by another 3D/4D/whatever-D show; I feel like those type of attractions are kind of played out at this point. I'd rather see them use that space along with some of the backstage space behind Space Mountain to put a new attraction in.

    I would like to see a really neat original attraction themed around time travel, but more realistically something TRON or Marvel could be fun.

    Because captain EO was filmed years ago and it is really outdated.....Avatar and star wars aren't but i would most like to see an attraction come out of this

    Re: WHat to do with captain EO

    hopefully it would be better to put in a new ride in instead of EO sitting there aging and not getting anyone in for attendance...

    Wonder if its been empty like it was 2 years ago when i took this pic?

    While I agree, EO, at least from my experiencing, has been drawing decent to good attendance (at least during the summer when I usually get to visit). At the very least it's playing to far more people than H,IStA did in its last several years.

    Re: WHat to do with captain EO

    I think bringing back Captain EO to celebrate Michael Jackson upon his passing was a nice thing to do. However, it's been running for a while now, so I'd like to see something new replace it. The big question is: what will replace it? DL/DCA just got a lot of stuff: Mermaid, Star Tours, Carsland, lots of rework of DCA, and now this nice meet and greet. I think Disney might take a break and start cleaning up what's already in the park before adding more new stuff. We got a lot of stuff.

    What to do with Captain EO


    Let it run it's course ... till the co. finally gets around to a Tomorrowland remodel.

    And when they do .... I think this Blue Sky rendering by imagineer Scot Drake is wonderful food for thought:

    TOAST!
    Instead .... an open plaza .... dealing with Disneyland's maddening 21st Century crowds......




    Keep in mind everybody ... 3D films are common place, now.

    There's not a megaplex around .. that does not have at least 1 auditorium rigged for 3D films.

    They use to be a Theme Park Exclusive ... but no more.

    Going to the local megaplex for the latest 3D movie ... is as about as common as Starbucks and McDonalds.

    If they attempt another 3D film ...... It's going to become so passť ... so fast. And you know ... how good Disney is at replacing things that become stale.

    maybe they could turn that theatre into a ride based on the future of tomorrow.

    To go old school, you could do a carousel of progress updated in DL.
