    Is coming back to Epcot. (I think I predicted this one a while back).

    It will replace Honey I Shrunk The Kids for a while. Not sure when the show will be back or for how long it will run.

    Is it replacing the playground (Honey, I Shrunk the Kids) or the show (Honey, I Shrunk the Audience)?

    I've never seen Captain EO. Anyone wanna share?

    Meaning, can someone tell me about it? Is it a show? An attraction?

    It's a 3D movie Becca, one of the first to be made. It was kinda neat at the time but the technology has moved on so much now it will interesting to see how it has stood the test of time.

    It was kind of a space themed story about going to rescue a cute creature I think. A few MJ songs and the gratuitous dance routine thrown in for good measure. You used to be able to buy the little furry guy in the gift shop on the way out. :D

    I'm also a huge MJ fan and would love to see his again.
    As I recall, it did look a little dated and 'glitchy' when I first saw it, so will definitely need some remastering work done, although that shouldn't be a problem with today's technology.
    I hope the sound system is good and beefy.
