ESPN Club moving?

A couple years ago I remember hearing numerous times that ESPN might be moved to DTD. Did that turn out to be just a false rumor or did the plan change?

Never heard that rumor before. There is certainly nothing currently happening about it. In fact, ESPN is shortly going to be renovating the gift shop/arcade area which would indicate they plan on staying right where they are for a while.

I did hear that rumor as well, that it was being relocated to DTD/Pleasure Island area. If I recall, that rumor came off sounding like it was pretty much going to happen. Never heard anything more of it so not sure what happenned. Personally I prefer it at the Boardwalk.

I have heard that the Bakery on the boardwalk is expanding into part of the ESPN Zone .THe aprt where the arcade is now.

Most of the ESPN resturants have clsed don compleltly si I do see expansion in thier future.

We go there every year. Last year we noticed that many of the staff we had gotten fo know were no longer there.

Seems that "Corporate" had implemented new mangement plans.

Disney dumped ESPN Zone. I read DQ makes a lot of $$$ with local (birthday) parties.

I suspect JH info had some info to support his rumor.
