Ug, what a complete waste of time and money --I don't know why they wanted to change it in the first place. I still miss the Comedy Warehouse!!!! Hopefully it will all be re-opened before yet another year (or two) passes by.

No, the rumor about things being put back onto the AC walls was proven false. But the Kungaloosh drink has returned to the Island at both Laffers and PI Live Bar.

My latest story explains the rumored new pathway into the island from DTD Marketplace as well as the rumor about Mannequins & 8TRAX reopening next year.

Based on the past 2 NYE at DTD (since the clubs closed), the answer is close to nothing. The place is jammed with people and it's hard to get a parking space, but there isn't anything special to speak of going on besides the normal shopping. There are no midnight fireworks, if that's what you're seeking. Restaurants are jammed. Keep an eye on announcements as maybe they'll do it differently this year. The Save Pleasure Island blog will cover NYE options a few days after Christmas.

The Boardwalk has been a fun place the past two NYE. Atlantic Dance Hall has a NYE party($fee); outside all the Boardwalk attractions are open and they were doing free line dance lessons in the grassy area outside the hotel. EPCOT fireworks are visible.

as the comments on bobs page says, its interesting this happens so soon after universals profits are announced.

Seems a clear admission that disney are saying their plans during this financial crisis have not worked and whilst universal will have added attractions which are not only going to pay for themselves very quickly and then increase profits for years to come. Disney however havent increased profits, and have left themselves with significantly less income potential once we're out of this crisis by closing PI, lowering the quality of dining and lowering the choice of merchandise. Plus they've got several big rides due major refurbs in the next year I think.

big oops for the bean counters.
