Here’s the official announcement: As of December 6th, Captain EO will be closed in Walt Disney World’s Epcot.
We brought you news on the rumor earlier, but Disney has now officially confirmed it. So make sure to check it out if you’re in the parks before it closes!
As for what’s replacing it? Disney has answered that, too. Starting in December (exact date not yet announced), guests will be able to experience Disney and Pixar shorts in a new 4D experience, in what they’re calling the “Disney & Pixar Short Film Festival.” “Disney & Pixar Short Film Festival” will include a look into the visionary minds behind some of the world’s most iconic animated films today.
