Are you thinking of Paradiso 37, it is just up from Fuego by Sosa Cigars bar. If they have happy hour i am not sure of when it is. There is a happy hour at Ragland Road i think.

I think I'm with you on this one. Although best of all worlds would be Mannequins dance floor with a techno night on Thursdays and a 70s/80s night sometime on the weekend, something akin to top 40 and hip hop the rest of the time.

I think he means the Hole in the Wall bar, which is technically a part of Raglan Road. I want to say Happy Hour is 4 - 6 there, but not 100% on that. It's late afternoon definitely. Never heard of a happy hour at Paradiso.

Yes, interesting story about this. 2 years ago (which was 1 year after the closure) they allowed the AC club to be rented and for AC actors/actresses to return to reprise their roles. Last year the club was no longer available because it had been stripped but Disney did allow AC actors/actresses to reprise their roles for a show which took place at EPCOT. This year there is another Congaloosh but Disney is not letting their former AC staff reprise their roles. Details at: http://congaloosh.org/home/


Could Tommycruiser might be thinking of PI Live Bar?

Possibly--but that hasn't had a happy hour in 22 years! "Hole in the Wall", next to Cookes of Dublin, still has one.

As KingBob mentioned, a more low-key event this year, but it is free. Highlights should be the recreation of the "Adventureland Challenge" Saturday afternoon, then an informal reunion Saturday night at the Applebees on 535. Nowhere epic as the first one, but a chance to see some old friends.

Someone had posted a comment on SPI about being harassed by Disney Security when a group of them tried to take pics in front of AC, while the commenter's group was wearing AC-style costumes. I believe the Congaloosh organizer had planned to do something similar this year with their group but I don't see that even posted on their schedule any longer.

That's it sorry I was a vague but it is the hole in the wall I was surprised to find a place at disney with a happy hour. We actually noticed it when we ate at Raglan Road great food there.

Thank you

The "Mannequins" name has been removed from the marquee outside the former club. Photos on the Save Pleasure Island Blog.

my Dis files magazine says "Splitsville" is coming to DTD west with bowling(?) billiards, dining, music, dancing and night life-- better than nothing?
