I'm happy to say I still proudly wear my Comedy Warehouse pin, gets a lot of attention in the parks especially Epcot for good reasons.

I still wear my 1993 Pleasure Island t-shirt as well & I remember a lot of people were asking me about it when I went to CW on September 20 on my second to last night at PI(My last night was my birthday the next day, what a great way to end your birthday night, getting to provide the pet peeve improv song topic & get to take pics with Jen Brassard, Philip Nolen, Mary Thompson Hunt & my favorite Lisa Glaze onstage sitting on the same stools that i've wanted to sit on for years.) Talk about a memory i'll never forget.


I implore you, please bring the CW back to PI in one form or another. I'd love to be able to spend my birthday this year seeing old friends doing their craft one more time.

No new rumors. Last I heard was that "interactive comedy was returning to Pleasure Island" but nothing more than that and nothing since then.

Don't know if you read my Blog, but last September there was a PI cast member reunion and several Comedy Warehouse CM's attended.

Funny you mention that. I brought that up on the boards before it happened as I stopped at What's Your Problem? & Mary told me about it. Unfortunately I couldn't make the party due to leaving a few days prior. I did try my best to spread the word about it though even though I could not attend.

I definitely enjoy your blog & very much hope the rumor does come true in whatever way so PI can have something good again.

There is a little bit of minor construction going on adjacent Mannequins upstairs entrance/exit but other than that, all is quiet on Pleasure Island. According to the various websites that publish construction permit information for Disney, nothing imminent either.

Just returned from a family reunion back up in good 'ol N.J., and stopped over at PI on the way home from the airport. Sad to see nothing at ALL going on over there. What the heck is wrong with Disney anyhow?

we all wonder. I was just reading an old press release about it. "bold new vision" "PI re-imagined" "guests want more shopping and dining"

"to make way for the new PI over the next 2 years..."

They better get workin cuz there's only 4 months till the 2 year mark and all we've seen is the creation of a lame street party and the removal of mannequins stairs

Don't forget the removal of the old PI Live booth and the lighting tower adjacent to it. Paradiso 37 & the adjacent water taxi dock are new additions since the clubs closed.

The 2 year plan was extended to a 4 year plan but I don't see how even that's realistic given the first club demolition has yet to take place.

Hmm, next stop, the 6 year plan. Can anyone say "an 8 year plan?"

So whats Flamingo Crossings, maybe the hundred year plan...

I suppose it might get interesting when things improve to the point Disney simply can't blame the economy anymore, yet the remains of Pleasure Island continue to sit empty and abandoned.

Pleasure Island Props

Does anyone know if there is an official way to get your hands on some of the old club props? I would love to have some of the wall art from Comedy Warehouse or the Adventurer's Club...

You can always keep your eyes on www.MouseSurplus.com . They get all sorts of odd stuff.

They currently have a door from Monorail Red for sale. That's a bit morbid if you ask me.

Funny you should mention that. We did a 2 day trip to WDW this week, and on the way home we took a little ride over to the site off of 429. The road work, landscaping and traffic lights are all in. But all of the construction equipment is gone and nothing else has been done building-wise. Just a lot of dead end roads and barricades. literally no sign of any further building at this point. Some of the areas even have for sale signs on them.

I loved Pleasure Island. For me,it was the only way to close every night on a Disney vacation. I was really angry when it closed, however as time passes I am cooling down. For now, I think that Disney should focus on promoting the few nightlife areas that they have. DH and I went to Disney a few weeks ago and visited Rix Lounge a Coronado Springs, a very cool place, and the Boardwalk area around Jellyrolls and Atlantic Dance. Rix and Jellyrolls were dead and Atlantic Dance was closed. Adults need somewhere to go in the evenings, but they have to know they exist. I also think that they should make some more club/lounges like Rix. Just my two cents!

If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention!
I guess Rainy Days are definitely a "turn on"!

I just hope PI is not becoming the new River Country. I know it is supply and demand, though. If the clubs they have aren't overflowing, they will probably not create new ones. I would love to see the return of Comedy Warehouse in some form!!
