Since its return to Discoveryland “Captain EO” on June 12, 2010 the attraction has been advertised with a small announcement at the bottom of the weekly entertainment program’s cover handed out to all guests. This was ment to compensate the fact that all park maps offered to guests still list “Honey, I Shrunk the Audience” instead of “Captain EO” as the maps for the period up to November 6 had been printed already earlier this spring.

Then, just as at Tokyo Disney Resort the internal memo refers only to “Captain EO” and not to “Captain EO Tribute” as the attraction has been named at Disneyland Anaheim for its return there. But there is more in the memo…
As reported in mid-April the rumor mill has been running overtime and is beyond just “hot” in regard to a pending closure of “Honey, I Shrunk the Audience” (short: HISTA) and the Imagination Institute in Disneyland’s Discoveryland in early May to prepare for a return of Michael Jackson in the 3D Space-Movie “Captain EO” that occupied the same spot in the early years of Disneyland Paris, when the theater was still called “Cinemagique”.
