OMG Pleasure Island is closing all the clubs, including the AC, by September 28th of this year!! I can't friggin believe it! BET, Comedy Club, 8 Trax, ALL GONE. I am literally in shock. We'll be going a month before that date so I guess I'll hit the AC while I can. It's going to be replaced by more restaurants and shopping. Isn't there enough of that in DTD?! :confused3

As long as I am alive and able to use my Magic Bullet, the Kungaloosh will never die.

So, are any of you familiar with the Night Kingdom thing that was talked about a few months ago? http://jimhillmedia.com/blogs/jim_hill/archive/2008/02/15/night-kingdom-to-reimagine-the-disney-theme-park-going-experience.aspx

And that it would include elements of the Adventurer's Club?

Anyone heard anything recent?

Maybe you're right - his occupation is "disney expert" Most of us have been going longer than he's been alive.

or drinking Kungaloosh longer than he's been alive ;) FWG - do you know the "birth date" of the Kungaloosh by chance? I'm pretty sure I've been drinking 'em longer than 13 years.

So if that's the case, then what was KristinU drinking all those years, or has too much Kungaloosh effected her memory also????

Wow, I guess it has affected that portion of my brain as well...but if the ol' memory has to stop working, I'm happy that its because of said Kungaloosh!

The portion of my brain which would remember this was destroyed by the very concoction we speak of.

OK. FWIW it looks like kungaloosh came into existence circa 1997 - that's what it says on the web and everyone knows how accurate that is! :lmao:

Here's what Jim Hill has to say about it now:

http://jimhillmedia.com/blogs/jim_hill/archive/2008/06/30/monday-mouse-watch-why-pleasure-island-has-to-close.aspx

You'd think they'd at least find a way to set up a Kungaloosh Bar somewhere in the meantime...maybe over at the Animal Kingdom Lodge/Villas?

I can't believe PI is closing!! I can understand why though, which seems to be the common thinking right now. I have so many memories from there, but the by far majority of them are from almost 10 years plus! I have some more recent ones, but it's just not a place we visit much anymore.

Except for of course, Raglan Road, which means we'll still be visiting the "old" (although really "new") Pleasure Island when we go there...lol.. Although this now means that one of our favorites, Raglan Road, is probably going to get a lot busier in the next few years.

I knew it was the end of the road for PI when they decided to shut down the beach club. There just aren't enough offerings there anymore, they signaled the end of PI when they went from ONLY allowing adults in past 8 PM to allowing anyone to walk around PI. No one wants to sit there and be pounding shots with 8 year olds around (although I guess we do that at Epcot all the time...lol). No more fireworks, it just felt like a throwback from the 90's (which is when I spent most of my time there, and when PI was at it's peak).

When I was in college in Tampa, people used to make road trips all the time just to go to Pleasure Island (about a one hour ride from Tampa). That's saying a lot, and I don't think there still are that many people making road trips just for PI.

I'm sad to see it go, but I'm also excited to see what it's going to be replaced with. It definitely needs something other than Pleasure Island there. I love walking from one place to the other in Downtown Disney (we'll be there this Thursday night, woohoo!!), and you know there are going to be tons of new stores and restaurants to try out, should be great.

P.S. Although I REALLY REALLY REALLY hope they keep the Jessica Rabbit neon light thing up, that would be a shame if that went away.

There is no need for a Kungaloosh bar elsewhere on property. That is why I have been promoting the recipe. As long as I, or one of my devotees, am camping at FW, there will be a Kungaloosh bar on property.

Were there 2 Jessica's?? I'm pretty sure there was one on the West End Stage that came down when it was demolished.

I can tell you where the Kungaloosh is going tonight. Right down Mine and AuburnJen's hubby's and mines belly lol. As usual Stacktester had to drop something. I went and got all the ingredients this morning and the brandy fell out the back door when I went to take the stuff out. Oh well Chris is getting more so not a problem. We're getting things warmed up shall we say. Nobody stop by though, we're only making a few batches for testing lol.

Just let me know if you need more kungaloosh supplies for Saturday night. I can pick them up & bring with me when I come over. We'll get there between 7 & 7:30.

Hate to break this to you, but those ticket booths haven't been the recycled FW train cars for many years. They were replaced with these fiberglass imitation things a long time ago.

Well, Kungaloosh at the Fort may be all that's left. The frozen drink machine at Adventurer's Club is "broken". I would be really surprised if they "fixed" it.

However, the cast was really "on" last night and the inside jokes on the closing are flowing freely. I had a blast!!!

I have to come to the defense of the lucky guy in the picture. He's got a lot going for him...

1. He's at the Fort (and I'm not) :rotfl:
2. He's in a rockin' chair on the porch at Trail's End :rainbow:
3. He's hoisting a "cold one" :drinking1
4. He appears to be in his bathing suit (note the lack of color coordination with the t-shirt) :crazy:

He looks like a wild & crazy guy about to just cut loose: everbody STAND BACK - party:
