That's actually the way I heard it.. So, perhaps there are two separate events.

I have heard a number of former PI/AC employees were planning on being on the Island the night of the Congaloosh party just to reconnect one last time. I didn't think it was anything formal though, just the last chance to see a lot of the favorite actors in their signature roles. Maybe there is a separate event before somewhere on property?

That could be it, but isn't the ConGaloosh event at the Club on the 25th? I think the official ConGaloosh activities are over by midday on the 27th. So if there's an event on the island on the 27th, it's separate from ConGaloosh.

It's scheduled for the 25th to the 27th, with the Hoopla on the 25th, so you are correct. The web site isn't very clear on the schedule...but several former cast members are expected to be attending in general.

I think Lou Mongello's AC party is on the 24th, although I think he was aiming for the 27th...I was pretty sure someone had booked the last possible weekend...

I think I also heard the Mongello party is the 24th.

The Congaloosh is in the Club itself Friday the 25th--that's the night I heard there would be an unofficial employee reunion outside, probably centered around Laffers.

Saturday the 26th, while the Congaloosh moves to one of the DTD hotels, the Club itself is booked...rumor has it for a wedding (not even sure this will even have shows, they might be turning it into a dance club again, many fan-favorite actors will be down the street at the Con). Possibly a two-day event? I've heard nothing about that Sunday, but it's entirely possible that is booked as well.

After that...the Yakoose, Colonel and Babylonya wing it to Hong Kong.

I had been told the reunion was at laffer's, but I didn't think they meant on the island, so I was looking for further confirmation. God help us if we have to stand there with that celebrate tonight BS.

edit: I'll be wearing my "I'm celebrating another empty building at DTD" button and "don't be bashful, reopen the clubs!" tshirt!

Ah...Lansdowne (the Nine, the Metro) and Narcissus.. the good ole days. Let's not forget Sean's and Fanueil Hall.

And yes, I was probably one of the 40somethings out on the floor in 8trax during SSW with some other Disney Moms. Now its gone.. and its very sad. But on a bright note, last June my husband and I headed over to Jellyrolls one night and it was like being down the cape in S. Yarmouth during a Jim Plunkett Happy Hour!!!!!!!!!!

I do miss the clubs at Downtown Disney and wish Disney could bring them back but for now Im happy with the drunken sing alongs.

Yes, I have heard it's a get-together for ex-PI CM's at Laffers but the sentiment is that they don't want to be anywhere near Celebrate Tonight (which is uniformly hated) so consideration is being given to meeting at RR instead.

Has it been confirmed that Colonel and Babylonia will be leaving? Are artifacts absolutely going to Hong Kong?

I wonder if the robbery at the DTD McDonalds will have an impact on any decision (or lack of a decision)?

I was told that one of the Colonels (apparently he had a double! ) and many other artifacts were definitely going. I haven't heard about Babylonia, though.

D23: Many were hoping to hear something about the future of Pleasure Island. Alas, nothing.

all three have a double just in case they need to replace them. even fingers has one. frankly it would be cheaper to build new ones in hong kong than use these because these will need alot of reworking if they want them operable remember they are over 20 years old.

Any news about the Comedy Warehouse or its building? I'd love to see improv return to PI again.
