All of them? or just some of them?

I'm still mildly hopeful AC will be brought back in some form. I expect the dance clubs to remain closed though.

Well over on another website one person posted that AC and Motion were being permanently closed and another person posted that AC and Soundstage buildings were coming down. No mention of any of the other clubs. But with many exciting new restaurant concepts supposedly coming, those places have to fit somewhere.

I guess so. AC will be a restaurant in a new section of HKDL.

Latest scuttlebutt has the contents of the AdvClub going to Hong Kong in October (there will be a restaurant named "The Adventurers Club" there, but from the concept art, it looks like at least the masks from the Mask Room will show up in some variation on the Haunter Mansion), and Motion being torn down to make a continuous pathway through DTD.

You're kidding... When was this announced? Did somebody put it in this thread and I missed it?

Do we know for certain that it is also leaving WDW, or just being replicated?

I think this was the original thread:

http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2217994

But I still haven't seen anything that a single object from the AC at WDW is going anywhere...

maybe following the massive success of the Diana exhibition, they're planning on turing the other clubs into Elvis and Michael Jackson exhibitions?

I'm skeptical about this one. Although certainly anything can happen at this point, this makes little sense to me because supposedly Motion is the only building 1) that does not have a roof leak, 2) still has a kitchen from back in the days when Fireworks Factory was there & 3) the only space still easily usable as meeting space. So they want to add new restaurants and this would be the easiest to accomplish it yet they'd tear it down for a pathway?

I don't know if anyone's seen this, but it looks like Kevin Lansberry is headed to DAK

Looks like a typical major corporation move, he's made an awful mess of DTD and transportation so they're going to give him something else to play with. He's done so well with transportation they are going to even let him keep it along with DAK!

Interesting article. Wonder if he has taken any flack over the bus and monorail accidents this past week?

there certainly seems to be more than a coincidence there that he has gained a significant reputation for reduction of service/cost cutting and soon after he gets put in charge of transportation there are two significant accidents.

In my mind, this guy should not be working at disney. You couldnt get someone more lacking disney spirit if you tried.

maybe I'm wrong, but thats how it seems to an outsider like me.

Lansberry was the person who announced the closure of all the clubs on Pleasure Island and has certainly taken the wrath. There are some who report that the decision all belonged to Jay Rasulo and that Lansberry was only the mouthpiece and scapegoat. We don't really know.

But in defense it would be difficult to blame him for transportation crashes, based on what I know. Transportation and WWS were just given to him a couple months ago. It's doubtful he made significant changes in such a short time. People who work there would have to address that issue though; mine is just an outside opinion.
