Pi Event Pricing

This will now convert rumor to definite. Disney Catering is again taking bookings for private events on Pleasure Island. Only Motion, Soundstage and Adventurer's Club are available though; Mannequins and 8TRAX are not. No reason given but my guess is that there are still viable plans for that building and perhaps it does involve Harley Davidson.

Prices are NOT cheap.
MOTION - standup capacity 600; Venue package $1500, Food & Beverage package $12,500 + tax and gratuity; 3-hr DJ package $3860.

SOUNDSTAGE - standup capacity 300; Venue package $1000, Food & Beverage package $5000 + tax and gratuity; DJ package $3000.

ADVENTURERS CLUB - Venue package $1000, Food & Beverage package $5000. No Schmooze package available; Talent prices quoted based on what you want.

My catering rep is great and she would be happy to discuss booking options with you if you're interested in possibly booking something. Her name is Jenie Lavery and her number is 407-939-5626.

As for me, I will be doing the math but at these prices a ticketed event may not be possible. BobK/Orlando

Great scoop, but pardon my ignorance...
What is the "venue package"? For that matter, can you explain what is included with each package?

Those prices don't seem all out of range...

Thanx..

The "venue package" is merely the use of the club. It includes some door hosts which are people that work there and keep the uninvited out. It also in a way includes all of the inside staff they may have working during the event.

The food & beverage minimum is the amount that has to be spent for those two items. For the money one could get a certain amount of food catered but it can also be used exclusively towards an open bar or perhaps in my situation, a certain number of drink tickets per person. One has to add 6.5% sales tax plus 21% gratuity to that as well. I'm not completely clear on how this works.

The DJ fee is for 3 hours of DJ services plus whatever sound/lighting tech(s) are needed for that specific venue.

Thanks.. That's exactly the info I was looking for.
If the AC never opens fully to the public, I would have no problem booking it for a semi-private function...

Any idea how long they will continue to rent the clubs?

They are taking bookings through the end of September only at this time. So no holiday parties. My rep did not know why that date other than it's the end of Disney's fiscal year. Why is that so important? I have no idea. I suspect that if the economy improves and they are in a position again to proceed with their original plans for the island that they don't want things delayed further by contractual obligations. So the date could get extended later but they don't know that now.

I was hoping you would say thru October, since that's the time frame that would be useful to me.

I have a feeling it may be longer term. Casting calls and training would be an extensive exercise for only a couple nights a week thru September...
Unless I'm not understanding correctly...???

Hmmm...on the last day of AC, wasn't there that note that they would all be gone for a year? Hmmmmm...

Here's an article about a recent Orlando Sentinel article on a possible Harley Davidson eatery

Have to assume that something really is up with the Mannequins/Motion building because it's not included in the clubs now available for private rentals nor was it in the rumor I reported regarding clubs reopening within one year.

Regardless of how one feels about dance clubs, it's sad that the two most highly themed of the clubs are the ones apparently not returning yet the two most generic ones are. But AC's availability should certainly please a lot of fans!

Of course, because if they gave us back the clubs we want and love, that would make too much sense!

True, but if the building is really under contract for something, there's no way to give it back to us. I'm thrilled that partying may actually be coming back to PI. A few months ago that seemed impossible!

Well I just called to book the AC in October... You are correct, they are only taking bookings thru September. In addition, naive as I may be, I thought the prices King Bob quoted were the *true* prices. Wrong.. They are compounded, so the Ac for one night is closer to 10k, rather than $1500.. My mistake.

I didn't read Bob's prices as being anywhere near $1500

$1000 gets you the venue and a couple of bouncer CMs

+$5000 gets you food and drink as well.

+$???? gets you the talent...I'm guessing that's what gets you to $10k, to get most of the actors.
