According to the Disney Parks blog the popular 3D show Captain EO will be returning to Walt Disney World this summer, delighting many fans of the show, who will be able to experience the attraction from July 2nd.
The attraction, staring Michael Jackson, will open at Epcot in the summer, further adding to the reasons to visit Central Florida in 2010 with the Wizarding World of Harry Potter set to open at Universal’s Islands of Adventure and the Summer Nightastic event coming over from the West Coast to debut at Walt Disney World.
The show had made its comeback at Disneyland following the passing of its star Michael Jackson and the popularity of the show over on the West Coast was the key reason Disney Parks & Resorts decided to take the show to the East Coast to add to the Walt Disney World line-up.
Interestingly, the show will also be featured at Disney’s overseas parks in Tokyo (June 30th) and Paris (June 12th), a bold move by Disney, especially in Paris where shows are rare due to the need to please both French and English speaking guests.
Captain EO will come into the Theatres currently holding the ‘Honey I shrink the Audience’ themed shows.
