The club formerly known as Motion will be open this coming Saturday night for a private rental. Tickets are being sold though to the general public to see techno DJ Manny Lehman. The tickets are $40 + ticket fees. Not cheap!

Island Updates

I was granted permission to enter Motion for free last night so that I could obtain photos for my Save PI blog. It was such a great feeling to be in a PI dance club again. And I was reminded what a great sound and lighting system Motion has that surpasses other clubs in Orlando including Atlantic Dance and The Groove! Photos at: www.savepleasureisland.blogspot.com

Sources on the island say there might be an official announcement about Pleasure Island sometime during July.

Paradiso 37 has opened and what a beautiful restaurant and bar it is. It was close to full when I visited last night. The PI water taxi stop next to Paradiso is also open again.

I feel similarly about the cha-cha, electric slide, and mambo #5

I have to say that Gay Days just wasn't the same without Pleasure Island.

We REALLY missed going to the Adventurers Club for the four nights of this weekend.

Such a waste.

There was a plane flying around WDW advertising someone being at Motion - I think it said June 7th (yesterday), so I'm guessing there was some sort of "open" private party.

Oops...missed this post...maybe it was the 6th on the banner...the weekend is a blur now

$40 doesn't seem bad compared to what the costs of the AC were...

Many of this weekend's other activities also cost that much. I hear a pretty decent-sized crowd showed-up so hopefully it was a financial success for the organization that rented the club. It was a "private" rental but tickets were sold to the public both in advance and at the door.

I tried out Paradiso 37 tonight. Prices are moderate; by no means cheap but not expensive either. Lot of customers there; the outdoor seating had capacity remaining though. Many items on the menu; a lot of Mexican things. Not sure how "Bolivian" the Bolivian Beef Skewers are; many things are themed like that. But I give it a thumbs-up and you may want to give it a try during your Disney visit.

I'm just going to bump this because another thread is forming about DTD that inevitably turns into a PI thread. Maybe some people who have no idea what's going on(PI into a theme park? please!) can come here for better information

The restaurant opened but that's it.
That's all that was ever officially announced.
And that seems to be all that is coming.
As of the moment.

Article in today's Orlando Sentinel points out what all of us PI fans already know. There are quite a few new things at Downtown Disney but not a single one replaced any of the comedy or dance clubs. The author concludes, they DIDN'T NEED TO CLOSE THE CLUBS to accomplish what has been opened!

Well, we are making a day trip tomorrow. Anxious to see what they done, and check out the new eatery.

Will be interested in hearing your fresh-faced perspective.

Of course Disney can let everything just sit there unused; it's their buildings. But I just don't understand not putting them to use to earn revenue.
