I have a phone conference scheduled for this Thursday with my Disney rep. Based on the new rumors I reported, I was going to again try to rent Motion. Now there may be some even better options available! This is exciting......WOW! I'll report back on here this Thursday night.

Yes, all doors covered as of Sunday. Also, rumor is from now on private shows will load from the "back door" (on the waterfront). No more incidents of security leaving the door open and people walking in, lol.

I know the thread topic is PI clubs , but I was wondering if someone can tell me what is going on with Atlantic Dance over at the Boardwalk. Everytime I have taken the time to walk to the entrance and look in I don't see many people. my Questions are the following: Does it get full at all? If not why not close it or perhaps move one of the former PI clubs there. While i'm at it there has been a long standing rumor about ESPN club moving to West side repalcing DisneyQuest, if that would happen maybe a second cub could be moved there.

you can find all the answers to your questions at http://disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2048392

If you have any others feel free to post them there and I will respond as best I can. I am door host there tonight, so come visit me!

As for AC, I went to PI last night and there is still only black stuff on the revolving doors, not the two doors to the right of that. At first glance it looks like it, but when you stand directly in front of the doors, you can still see in.

Another update from Screamscape. Hopefully some life will come back to PI.

Downtown Disney & Pleasure Island News - (2/3/09) We’ve heard from a couple of people today confirming that Disney has reopened private bookings for the Adventure’s Club and maybe other venues through to the end of the fiscal year. One source was walking through PI the other evening when they spotted a few suits getting a tour of the site, standing outside one of the club for a time talking when suddenly the outside lights of the club all came back on. It certainly looks like Disney is looking over their options to bring the area back to life in some form.

Although I support the re-opening of PI(especially if they bring back the CW) I would inquire on how the pricing would work. Would people pay cover charge for each club or would they offer the all club pass? Let's just say that they open Mannequins, 8-Trax, CW & AC. Would only 4 clubs convince you to buy that "& More" option or would you be willing to drop the money on paying for an all club pass? I welcome the return of PI because it was really depressing taking those pics back in December seeing an empty place, especially the pin cart in front of CW. Here's hoping by September when I go back down, that PI is alive & well.

If disney was smart(and they rarely seem to be these days) they would just reopen BET(new mannequins), Motion(new 8-trax), and AC and charge 10 dollars/club. With all the press and all the angry people about PI leaving, I bet they would pay it, especially the AC fans. It's what disney does best, raise the price and lower what you get for it(fantasmic anyone?)

I think that's a little ahead of things though. Lets just get those clubs open for A) private events and B) the public and then worry about ticketing I think. I certainly hope something good comes sooner rather than later.

Also a note: PI live's contract has been renewed for 2 months. I won't say who told me, but lets just say you never know who will walk through the doors of atlantic dance on a tuesday night!

Here's a new rumor posted yesterday by the Orlando Sentinel about Mannequins.

Quote:
Rumor has it that Harley-Davidson has sniffed around the abandoned Mannequins building at Pleasure Island with thoughts of opening a restaurant at the Downtown Disney location. (They already have a retail outlet on the Island). Kind of hard to imagine, but at least that revolving dance floor might get work representing a wheel. Why, look here: part cafe, part museum.

Related unofficial word that other clubs at PI will continue to be rented out for private and corporate events into the fall.

ANYTHING that goes into the 8-trax or mannequins buildings will NEVER get a fraction of a penny from me!

Personally, I would pay a cover to get into the AC. I actually used to basically do that way back when before I had an AP for PI and they did not have that "plus five" option. Once in a while I'd end up in 8trax or CW for a bit, but I was pretty much shelling out the $20.00 (or whatever it was for a PI night pass back then) to get into the AC each night I went. And I'd do it again now if they brought it back.

So a rumor on another board says auditions were announced for VJs, DJs and comedic performers. Supposedly the VJs are for Atlantic Dance...but DJs and comedic performers? Hmmm...

Can anyone with contacts in Entertainment confirm or get more info?
