History and Trivia

At this Location

This area of Tomorrowland was first put into use in 1961, though you'd never recognize it. At that time, the Flying Saucers attraction opened. Flying Saucers was a high-tech version of bumper cars as riders moved around on air cushions. The saucers never worked as well as hoped and the ride only lasted five years and with the New Tomorrowland of 1967 the area was converted into the Tomorrowland Stage, a 1,100 seat outdoor theater that played host to many acts and performers over the years. When Space Mountain opened in 1977, the stage was renamed Space Stage and built into the base of the mountain. In 1985, Space Stage closed for construction of the Magic Eye Theater, to be home for the new Michael Jackson 3-D film Captain EO. The theater opened before the film was ready and initially showed the Magic Journeys film from Walt Disney World and Captain EO moved in later that year. After a bit more than 10 years, the film was quietly pulled as part of the New Tomorrowland redesign and the theater closed to reopen as Honey, I Shrunk the Audience. That "4-D" show lasted about 12 years before the sudden death of Michael Jackson in 2009 revived interest in the Captain EO show, causing it to be put back in place in 2010.
