    Don't rush forward into the theater when the doors open. Hang back and wait until one of the middle rows is about 1/3 full, and you'll have the best seats! Really great show!! MJ is the man!

    While some of the effects of the original show aren't here, the motion simulator base movement is a cool addition. A great throwback and totally cool to have our MJ fan kids now seeing EO.

    Although both Carousel of Progress and Captain EO are both old in features I never have to see EO again. Fell asleep. For those who like it, great - just not for me.

    If you are looking for nostalgia you have found it. I really wish they had converted to a digital projection, but it is still really fun.

    This is my favorite show on property! There are so many big names on this production. Also, one very obvious Hidden Mickey. Can you find it? ;3

    So cheez-tastic it's fantastic! 80's memories abound! It's so bad, it's good! Don't miss it and be sure to dance on the way out!

    In order to help things run more smoothly, listen to cast members when they ask you to move forward in the preshow and all the way down the row. All seats are good seats, I promise.

    The Closest thing 2 going back to 1986, but without spending a night hot tubbing while drinking some Russian energy drink which is illegal everywhere else (that was a reference 2 Hot Tub Time Machine)

    Go with an open mind. This is a re-release of a 1986 movie. Disney didn't add any newfangled digital effects, it's exactly the same. It's very cheesy but still fun! RIP MJ!

    It is more amazing than anything that is amazing. The preshow is one of the most epic things I've ever seen. And hooter... Oh hooter, how everyone loves you!

    Look out for the dancer to the left of MJ, when they walk towards the queen in a triangle formation he is completely out of step and spins when no one else does, then gets annoyed at himself!
  • Michael J.
    Michael JonesDecember 25, 2013
    Only 1986 Michael Jackson can touch me in a way that brings a tear to my eye. It's the best 3d sci-fi dance movie I have seen all day!
  • Laura L.
    Laura LycansDecember 16, 2013
    I loved this when it first came out in 1986 but sadly believe it is time to put it to rest...I am a MJ fan but still this needs to be archived it is way past its prime.
  • Tristan J.
    For the best view, make your way near the middle section and make sure to let some people thru first to get a middle seat!
  • Michelle K.
    Michelle KinsmanApril 4, 2013
    Obviously dated effects, but Michael Jackson in his prime and pure 80s awesomeness make this a must see.
  • Jacquelin T.

    Yeah this ride is completely empty. If an Epcot Employee tells you to go to the end of your row. Disregard, sit in the middle, towards the back.

    Be aware if you arrive before the pre-show begins. The cast members have been forcing guests all the way forward, when clearly the back is better. Either way, it's a huge nostalgic rush!
  • Rusty V.
    Rusty Van PraagJanuary 9, 2015
    The most 80s thing you can imagine. But if you like MJ you'll have a good time!
  • Bobby S.
    Bobby SiegfriedMay 8, 2011
    If you have the ability to appreciate how far technology has come since 1986 and enjoy a performance by the best performer/dancer to ever live, you will love this show.
  • Jon S.
    Jon ShecketMarch 16, 2014
    If you absolutely LOVE the 80s and/or Michael Jackson then this is worth your time. Otherwise, no.

    We have changed the world. Also sit in the back of the theater you can see more of the special effects that way.

    No matter what people say on foursquare, listen to the instructions of Disney employees. Almost EVERYTHING they tell you to do is for your safety.

    When entering the preshow, move all the way forward and to your left and please do not sit on the floor. It'll make your life much easier.

    Just as legit as I remember in '86. Absolutely love it.

    So refreshing! Makes me realize how much I miss the 80's Michael Jackson. Great 3D experience!

    The mustaches and funky music from the pre-show is worth the price of admission alone!

    It was good to see George Lucas working with Chewbacca again during the pre-show. Wait, what's that? That was Francis Ford-Coppola?

    Do not do what Brian Q says and move all the way down during the peak seasons. It will help CMs get a lot more people in the seats.

    Very old and cheesy. Don't waste your fast pass on this. Disney needs to move on up and change this to tangled or frozen. Nobody wants to see Michael Jackson from almost thirty years ago.

    Way wayyyyy dated. Half of the speakers are broken & have tape over them. 3-D is blurry. I'm a child of the 80's & I love MJ but this was a huge disappointment

    Try to sit as far back (and as close to the middle) as you can. The further back the better.
