I really wish cast members wouldn't spread stuff like that, especially on a tour. If I'm specifically asked about rumors, I will tell what I've heard with the very specific notation that they are rumors.

yes, most likely referring to Flamingo Crossings which is A) dead in the water and B) has a specific rule banning alcohol from the property.

"Due to Guest Feedback about the lack of parking around the Disney Marketplace, and the underutilized empty space between the West Side and Marketplace, We are proud to announce that the old Pleasure Island space is being 're-imagineered' as a multistory parking structure with a moving sidewalk connecting the 2 sides of DTD. We believe this central parking, as well as the moving sidewalks which will allow guests to easily travel between the 2 sections of the shopping area, will help provide guests a reason to visit both the West Side and Marketplace on a single visit, while also helping to resolve the parking issues and the empty building blight which top the issues guests have expressed wishing we would resolve.

It Could happen....

Never...Disney would never use the words "empty building blight" or "underutilized" in a press release. Otherwise, the rest is possible.

Today marks 4 years since the Pleasure Island comedy and dance clubs were shuttered. During these 4 years Rock'n'Roll Beach Club and Motion were demolished. The other clubs, Mannequins, 8TRAX, Soundstage, Comedy Warehouse & Adventurers Club were closed and remain idle. In other words, absolutely nothing new has replaced any of the PI clubs. Nothing.

With Splitsville opening next week at Downtown Disney West Side, a LOT of former Pleasure Island regulars will be there to check out the DJ and dancing offered during the opening weekend. In case you missed it, upstairs at Splitsville will be adult-only on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.

Will the upstairs be like a "club" like scene or what?

I wish they would have reopened the adventurers club - they could have done it as a dining themed evening - a course during each performance - even if it was spread out over several hours.

I am sure they would have made money rather than the odd drinks people bought. I saw some people who stayed for most of the evening who only had one round of drinks in all that time - so there was always loads of scope to make it more profitable.

The problem with AC as dinner theatre is Disney would never let it go that long. You would have two or three performances a night, limited to 90 minutes. (Picture AC as HDDR.) Not saying that that wouldn't be better than the version we have NOW. I suppose you could make it so each performance is different, and therefore eventually you could see the whole rotation by going three times, but that would get mighty expensive.

Aren't the locals a big part of why they closed PI? Everyone would go frequently on their season pass, buy one drink (if that) and stay there all night? I recall every time I went to the AC seeing the same people in the same seats in the main room reciting the same lines with the cast. A little Rocky Horror esque.

Ever go in the BET towards the end? How about manequins?

Wouldn't "more expensive" == "more income" ?

I'm not sure why you say "Disney would never let it go that long." They already have HDDR and Spirit of Aloha. Except if there are three varying shows, the chance for repeat business is I think higher...
