if you define a chance as .000000001%, then yes. Otherwise, no

I surely hope so but sadly the best that is being done is probably Mary, Lisa, Missy & Krista at What's Your Problem? in Epcot or when Lisa, Philip or Mark are at Idol. Otherwise as much as I wish CW would re-open on property, its probably very doubtful. But i'm hopeful just as much if not more than anyone that there may just be another CW in the future.

big PI sign over mannequins is still off and all the junk that paradiso was storing in 8-trax is gone. Was on the island at midnight, both bars closed and only Reglan and Sosa were open. It was such a sad sad sight.

Kind of like the "Dumb & Dumber" movie... "So you're telling me there's a chance. Yeah!"

DH and I went to Raglan Road for lunch Saturday and I grabbed the latest DTD map from the hostess stand (the one with the balloon on the cover.) Imagine my surprise when I saw one of the panels pushing the "nightlife" at DTD with a young couple in the picture. WTH?! I wanted to throw it at someone. Hahaha. Make up your minds Disney management. They also had a newer fancy ad for Disney Quest in it (new logo.) How about spending some money to fix the broken stuff in there instead of making a fancy new ad?

yes the nightlife advertisements they are pushing absolutely outrage me. Nightlife? are you kidding? They literally turn off all the extra street lights at 11pm during the week. The two bars on the island close, and that stupid celebrate tonight thing is done with. 11pm!!!! The only things left are Paradiso and regland. It's pathetic! The last marketing campaign they pushed at PI was in 2004. Now they get rid of it and start a nightlife campaign? They are complete idiots.

On that note, the big PI sign has been turned back on. Apparently they did work on the emergency systems in 8-trax and someone mistakenly threw the breaker that effects the PI sign. They didn't even notice it until wdwpi and I reported it. All is well with the sign...for now.

Is this a new advertising campaign or the same one I covered in the Save Pleasure Island blog several months ago? I thought they dropped it amid the criticisms.

no, I'm pretty sure it's still around. I'll have to check a brochure when I'm there next.

The latest Pleasure Island Guidemap has that same old "Have the night time of your life" advertisement on the back of it that we saw a few months ago.

For anyone interested, I posted a couple current pictures of the inside of Mannequins on my Save Pleasure Island blog. Basically nothing has happened in there since the club closed nearly a year and a half ago. Sad.

Was out on PI this evening......nothing new.
No buildings being demolished.
No new construction.
Nothing to report.
And that's my report.

Pi reunion reminder

Hey, if you're a local or happen to be in the Orlando area and used to hang out at any of the Pleasure Island dance clubs, please come out to Atlantic Dance Hall tonight for the Pleasure Island Reunion. Admission is FREE. ADH is located at Disney's Boardwalk Resort. Parking is also free. And if you never set foot in the PI clubs but are interested, you're certainly welcome too!

Are restaurants the only places to buy alcohol in WDW now that PI is "down for maintenance"? If so, would you say they are quick to flag people? I would like to be able to have a few vodka & cranberries after dinner without management making an issue of it.
