FYI I was in PI before work this evening and did not notice this(I was in a hurry) but I went back to PI after work and guess what? the big giant sign that says Pleasure Island housed on top of mannequis was NOT lit up!

Construction coming? possibly
guests complaints about it looking like the PI of old? Possibly
Lansberry sending a signal that PI is not reopening? possibly
or just a simple maintenance problem? Possibly


I worked door host at Atlantic dance and talked to some people who obviously have not been here since the early 90s. They were shocked that PI was closed including the AC and even asked about church street station, which is in complete ruins thanks to PI putting it out of business.

I encouraged them to write a letter...not that it'll do any good, Disney needs to know when it screws up as much as when it does things right.

I assume this was in response to me. Yes, all of the adventurers were there. Along with the induction ceremony, they also made a friend and I do some fertility stuff with Babylonia and Fletcher hosted a Treasure Room show.

Could be. One of the prior rumors was that the whole complex was going to be called Downtown Disney with no differentiation between the 3 sections and their current names. Or it could be they're going to dismantle the building so they need to take the sign down. Or it could be they need to maintain the sign because PI is going to reopen. Or it could be......who knows!

yes once again Disney does something that leaves us completely clueless as to their intentions!

However, you could have $5K in drink tickets which would be $50 per person which is a LOT of drinks for those in attendance. Too much, in fact. So maybe you have $25 in drink tickets and allow for finger foods. Makes the $100 entry fee more palatable and perhaps you'd find 100 people willing to do it.

It wasn't your post that was confusing.. It was my optimism that got the best of me..

Anyway, I called and got the info for an AC rental. I am considering putting something together for October, however I would need "pre-paid commitment" as I don't want to be stuck with a $10k bill.
I'll see just how much "commitment" there is as the time approaches. Of course that assumes it will still be offered after September.

I get the impression that if they can rent the places out then they don't need to reopen them. I hope that's not the case. If the rumor is true that they need to get some activity going out on the island because it's so dismal right now, then they simply need to reopen as much as they can. PI fans by the hundreds (if not thousands over the course of the summer) would return willingly to spend our $ and € and £.

No argument here. Heck, last Saturday night, CityWalk apparently had a line to get past security that stretched the length of the rotunda (that's not even counting all of us who flooded the place from the Studios after Mardi Gras). The line outside Bob Marleys looked like the Adventurers Club on its last day, switchbacks and all. Rising Star was SRO within minutes of opening.

There's a market for nighttime entertainment in Orlando, and Disney is doing its shareholders a disservice by refusing to reopen PI in some form.

Have you heard about the nonprofit group putting on a private anniversary event, the "Congaloosh," in September? No details have been released yet, but there will be a VIP event in the Club (with characters) September 25. Would be a significantly cheaper way to experience the Club again. PM me and I can put you in touch with the organizers.

This is interesting because how can they stage the event at the prices PI is charging to rent without receiving donations from those that want to attend equaling at least that same $100 per person? On the other hand, if they have doners paying to rent the place, then that perhaps gives them the ability to sell tickets for less.

Well, not sure it won't be $100 a person--but that's still a lot cheaper than putting up $10,000!

I was on the DVC member site and there was a link to "Check Out The Fantastic New Downtown Disney Vision", which when clicked took you to a page that said, "That page is unavailable". LOL, just like in real life.
