You may love the attraction, or you may hate it, but Captain EO is leaving Walt Disney World very soon. On December 6th, the attraction, which returned to the park after the death of the attraction’s star, Michael Jackson, and has stayed since then will close for good.

In recent months, the Golden Eye Theater has largely been used to display previews for new Disney and Pixar movies. Both Inside Out and Tomorrowland had preview films playing there. Now, it seems Disney is turning this into a more permanent event.

Replacing Captain EO in the Golden Eye Theater will be a brand new movie experience. Inside, guests will soon be able to view Disney and Pixar animated shorts!

As part of the changes to the theater, it will be converted to a 4D theater from its current 3D state. Opening this December, this renovation definitely sounds like it will be an interesting and fast way to improve an existing attraction! I’m glad it will be open by the Holidays so I can experience it!
