As always, don't believe it until you see it!

Are you sure about that Walgreens Bob? Wasn't anything at all happening over there last week. We are going down for our anniversary on the 23rd. I'll drive back there again and have a closer look-see

Can you please post a link? As for Marvel, they can't use the characters in Florida as you probably know since Universal has the rights.

The current placement assured that anyone coming south off the Turnpike to Disney would pay one toll and anyone coming north off I-4 to Disney would pay one toll.

Isn't the stipulation that they can't use the Marvel Characters inside a theme park? (Hence the Avengers monorail is OK.) There might be some wiggle room there, since Pleasure Island is not a "theme park" per se. Or maybe I'm mistaken on the wording of the restrictions.

I do believe Universal has the theme park rights only. There apparently is no problem with the monorail because it's a transportation device. I think Marvel characters wandering around DTD would be a big problem.

And in reality, Disney hasn't figured out how they're going to use Marvel characters outside Florida yet. So they're sure not going to try them out inside Florida.

Found it interesting that the Parks Blog posted about the Comedy Warehouse yesterday - http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blo...wntown-disney/

While the laughs have stopped at the Comedy Warehouse at Pleasure Island, last year the troupe was resurrected for a holiday special at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Today, guests can visit the Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor at Magic Kingdom Park for a fresh serving of jokes by the monsters of Monstropolis.
Could this lend more credence to the CW rumors?

sounds more like them just using the name of a beloved place that they closed down to promote something else....unfortunately.

Thanks for sharing this; I think this will need to go into a SPI Blog article next week.

The Disney Parks Blog is an official Disney mouthpiece. They could have done a Monsters Inc Laugh Floor article quite easily without ever mentioning Comedy Warehouse. The fact most of the article is about CW says something. Quite interesting!

Smile Downtown Disney Expansion

Just found this in the Tampa Bay Newpaper from March 2012, know its a bit old but seems legit -Splitsville will open a new location in Downtown Disney after about three years of negotiating with Disney officials about theme, format, prices, menu and operating hours.

The new location will make the restaurant/bowling alley’s Channelside location look small. Downtown Disney’s location will be two stories with 30 bowling lanes and seating for 750, according to the Tampa Tribune. Splitsville takes over a former Virgin Records store at 50,000 square feet. The restaurant’s Channelside home is about half that size.

Splitsville also has locations in Dallas, Miami and Fredericksburg, Va. Co-owner Guy Revelle told the Tribune the company hopes to open a new location once a year for the next few years.
ought I would put it out there:

We've known about it for over a year It's opening this fall. Although for some reason this past spring there was a sudden increase in news about it that at least made it seem like it was new news...

I wonder if these are a Franchise ? The one here didnt pay their rent and got shut down and they auctioned off everything in it. We helped a friend move a booth she bought at the auction .

It's definitely a chain...don't know if they are franchised or not. But not every location works out, either.
