The Member Lounge will feature:

Walt Disney World revealed today what will replace the Captain EO attraction at Epcot.
Beginning in December, the Disney & Pixar Short Film Festival will debut in the Epcot’s Magic Eye Theatre. Inside the theater, guests can put on their 3-D glasses and enter the imaginative worlds of three animated shorts, which will burst to life on the big screen (and in the theater) like never before.
Epcot will be showing a sneak peek of the upcoming “Tomorrowland” movie in April 2015.
Disney will be showing the exclusive preview scenes in the Imagination Pavilion Theater, which is currently home to Captain EO. The preview will also feature special effects that are part of that theater location. “Tomorrowland” opens in theaters on May 22nd.
The preview is only for a limited time, and there is talk that preview may signal the end to Captain EO playing at Epcot. EO returned to Epcot in 2010 following the death of Michael Jackson. Although Captain EO was originally expected to be back for a limited time, it has since become a permanent replacement for Honey I Shrunk the Audience.
