Having been to both locations of J&H in NYC (granted this was about nine years ago), and the Adventurers Club, J&H is no Adventurers Club. As the saying goes, often immitated but never duplicated. AC was much more immersive than J&H, and as I have heard it, J&H has become even less so over the years.

That being said, I think it would be a fun addition to City Walk if the rumor you have heard is true. And especially for an HHN prefunc.

Jekyll & Hyde is terrible, and stupid. Nothing more needs to be said.
I fell for the hype, then I went to NYC to see for myself.

not to be too "negative"...but...

I can't stop laughing

What the hell are they doing? They try to schlep off the space to third party operators...come one come all...
But the economy still sucks (no matter what politico fed BS the Wall Street Journal tries to tell you)...and therefore travel sucks and will for the forseeable future...

so now Iger runs out and stands in the way of the wrecking ball waving his arms frantically in the wind (of course his hair remains perfectly in place)...and they are trying to put the lipstick back on the pig and get somebody to bite on outdated buildings that have sat vacant in the florida sun for two years...

You can't make this stuff up (if the rumors are true and i can certainly see how they are)

What a crock...this was all done to save the cost associated with a group of minimum wage employees and to eliminate some middle class tipped positions and to attempt to sell a few easy money rental and licensing agreements...nothing more.

It wasn't even really about Pleasure Islands performance (though it was bad) or the need for redevelopment. Like the sleepy DVC that stares at it from across the lake...this was about the 2000-2010 quick buck while cutting costs era. Nothing more.

At the House O'Mouse now and the same cast that always gave me the "never gonna happen, get over it" are now saying stuff like "we don't know what's going on over there now, anything is possible I guess."

So you're saying there's a chance?

To be fair...the last place you should go to for info on development at WDW is the employees. They know nothing.

Just as a personal example: when they decided to shut our hotel down for rehab in 2002...they had a hurry up meeting to announce it only after it was leaked to intercot.

Workers are on a "need to know" basis and they don't need to know.

Here's a link to what I posted on the SAVE PLEASURE ISLAND BLOG yesterday.
http://savepleasureisland.blogspot.com/

It's just a rumor so don't know if it's fully true or maybe just part of a bigger story.....or completely wrong. It is what a source reported to me.

Unhappy The Colonel up for sale?

This doesn't seem hopeful for the AC...from Twitter:

For the first time in 5 years, I'm standing in front of the Colonel. At property control. #kungaloosh

johnhensel John Henselmeier

@DisneyMagicMan for sale, silent auction, starting at $1000

I snapped a photo of him (the Colonel), I can't post it, but it's a really depressing picture...

Smile neato!!!

Even though it wasn't in pleasure island, i wish they wouldn't have done away with the virgin megastore. that place was awesome I think the best thing they could put in pleasure island is a ferris wheel and even more restaurants!!!!

Glad I have the DVD to rewatch the shows whenever I want, but I'll miss Fletcher Hodges pulling me onstage to sing, and the masks expressing their sympathy thinking I shaved me head because of a lice problem.

The colonel was pulled from auction for apparently a "very good reason"

There is apparently an interesting story developing, but those in the know haven't yet leaked it on the internet. All we can do is hope...and send letters.


For the record, I don't care personally about AC much, but I recognize what it was. I always said I would help the plight of the AC people, hoping that in return they do the same for me when it come to a techno and 70/80 club returning.
