    I am so excited to see Michael Jckson in Captain Eo!!! How long will it be running in WDW beacuse I can't miss it and won't be visiting until at least December. Thanks PS Love the sight!

    Thanks for your great question Kristin!

    Glad you enjoy the Moms Panel, and thanks for the positive feedback!!

    Certainly lots of questions since Disney's big announcement this morning:  Captain EO will be returning to the Honey I Shrunk the Audience theatre in Epcot on July 2, 2010. 

    Very exciting!

    Regarding a final date, according to an Orlando Sentinel article today, "Captain EO will play ... for an indefinite amount of time, although Disney officials said Tuesday that Honey is expected to return eventually." 

    So, it seems the final date is yet to be defined.

    I suspect that the end date will depend mostly on how popular the attraction is.  Considering that Honey I Shrunk the Audience is not tremendously popular, I'd venture a guess that Disney will keep Captain EO a while. Seems to make sense to keep it through the busy Christmas season - but, again, that's just my personal guess.  I'll keep my fingers crossed for you - OK?

    By the way, in case you are interested (or in the neighborhood!) the film is already in Disneyland, and will also be opening at Disneyland Paris on June 12 and Tokyo Disneyland on June 30.

    Hope that helps!
