I love seeing them finally embracing their past!

The Funnmeister is also the chaser in the Park Starz Vinylmation series that came out awhile back.

Thanks, Nikki! It's nice seeing Disney celebrate its Pleasure Island heritage after hiding from it for a few years.

Latest rumor published on the Blog is that Curl by Sammy Duval will be closing their PI location when their lease expires this year.

Any reasons as to why, such as lack of foot traffic? Or is it just a change in how they are doing buisness? Or is not enough known to speculate

Well it seems that the AC is not completely forgotten by the WD Archives or D23. Check out the latest episode of Disney Geek for a return of The Colonel - http://youtu.be/a5ga2LPl9uM

Wasn't there a report that the Colonel was up for sale?

At one point he was going to be up for auction and then it was reported that he was pulled at the last minute. I'm sure it's somewhere on this thread, but with 90 pages I have no idea where.

I did find the original post over at http://www.savepleasureisland.blogsp...-property.html

No, I have no info on that unfortunately.
Today on the SPI Blog I have an update on the new Splitsville upscale bowling alley.

A new permit filed by Disney with Orange County regarding the PI sign leads me to believe that an announcement about what is going to replace Pleasure Island might be imminent.

See the details at: www.savepleasureisland.blogspot.com

I heard it is the Grand new idea of dancing mixed with some live entertainment.....Wait a minute that might make sense.


It will be some brand new stores selling everything you can already get online but for the extra Disney only 300% markup.

While I hold out hope that something will take the spot of PI...my thought is they are just going to have the PI sign removed and put in a DTD sign in its place, just to keep the theming of DTD similar.
