Ode to Captain EO

I realize this has nothing to do with math but it has a whole lot to do with Disney. In my humble opinion, bringing Captain EO back was BRILLIANT!

What is it about Captain EO that is so fun? I have no idea. Going to Disneyland without seeing the 3D show seems to be missing something. This last trip I went to the show (of course) and as it ended the little boy behind me said loudly “The Lincoln show was better than that!” So I realize everyone has their own opinion but I adore this show. In fact, the only thing I’ve ever bought at Disneyland is this gem.

Perhaps it’s the memories of belting out the music that makes me love the show so much, or maybe the fact that I think Michael Jackson is the most incredible artist in history. No matter the excuse, I think Captain EO is a must at Disneyland

Do you think Captain EO is better than Honey I Shrunk the Kids? Do you go check out this show every time too? I’m curious if I’m just crazy. (I am, I realize that.)

Hooter!! (That’s for you Jac)

  1. I practically grew up at Disney World (my grandmother lived 15 minutes from it) and Captain EO has always been my all-time favorite attraction. It’s infinitely better than Honey I Shrunk the Audience. You’re most definitely not crazy.

    • Yes thank you!!! Haha! I never took time out of my schedule to see honey I shrunk the audience but there is always time to caption eo. I even like the “making of” video they show at the beginning.

  2. I like Captain EO better too. However, I think it’s more for nostalgic reasons, remembering when it was new to Disneyland. As a kid, I thought it was so cool. Now, I just giggle through the entire show. I feel like it falls under the ‘awesomely-bad’ category.

  3. MJ is the man, no doubt! In fact “Another Part of Me” is probably my favorite song of his. 🙂 And I have to agree with Karen, some of what I love about Captain EO is the cheese-factor. I enjoy it every time though. It’s always worth the trip down, and hey! No hour+ wait! 🙂

  4. The 80’s costumes, MJ shooting laser beams and singing about saving the world while the floor shakes? Not to mention MJ dancing and singing numbers?! How could life get better.
