So this is at the "Premier" theatre? Which one is that exactly?

It used to be the theatre for Hunchback. They enclosed it and have been using it for special events like the Star Wars Weekends presentations.

Were you down? Did not see you Sunday/Monday.

Theater is to the right of Lightning McQueen/Mater, sort of tucked away behind Streets of America.

I fought the crowds and caught 5 shows earlier this week (after planning on only seeing one)--the cast has been on fire, home runs every show. Definitely catch it if you can. I'll say this--if the shows on PI had been as consistently funny as these are, I would have spent a lot less time across the street at the Adventurers Club.

Yes, I was down there. I caught all 12 shows Sunday-Monday before I headed home on Tuesday.

I was usually sitting on the left down in front (either the first or 2nd row). They used several of my suggestions (including one that I gave at the last show on Sunday, but used as a callback in the first show on Monday -- mad props to Jeannette for that one!).

Like the plans before that, and the ones before that...

Disney has announced a fair number of things that never came to pass...

I'm personally hoping for limited time magic: one more week at Mannequins Dance Palace

Who knows...with the work that has been going on in MDP, it could be in the works. Disney certainly doesn't hire an electrical company for nothing...

Well I hope everyone saw the news about Tom Wolber being announced as the new Senior Vice President of Downtown Disney (and Disney Sports). You see, Wolber comes from Disney Cruise Lines, possibly the most profitable arm of the Walt Disney Corporation.

Fans of Pleasure Island should be very happy because his legacy at DCL is that every ship not only catered to children and families, but also offered adult guests an entertainment district just for them. He's shown that one does not need to exclude adult activities even when your focus is on children and families. That's the exact opposite of what happened with Disney closing the comedy and dance clubs at PI. The shutdown left adult guests at Disney with virtually nothing to do except head over to Universal's CityWalk entertainment complex.

PI fans are hoping that Wolber will bring his philosophy to Downtown Disney and rectify the Pleasure Island fiasco. Nearly 4-1/2 years ago those clubs were closed, absolutely none of them are being used for anything else. Two were demolished and replaced by grass, the other four sit idle, partly hidden behind bushes.

I wory that anyone in a position to bring adult entertainment to PI and the inclination to do so would have their hands tied as to not make it look like Disney was admitting to a mistake.
