Empty and falling down. Word is that part of the roof of BET collapsed over the summer due to lack of maintenance on the air conditioning units.

After seeing the pictures of the club being stripped of artifacts, I think that those hopes are long gone. At least for any sane, reasonable AC fan.

I still miss it every single week. But it's not coming back.

No such thing.

Actually, there are quite a few of us. We're just not very vocal.

That would be me..
Actually, I think there is a chance it will return, but not reopen.
What do I mean by that?? I don't think there is a chance the old club building will reopen, but I think there is a chance we will see the AC in some form, perhaps not at DTD. I still think the Hong Kong dinner show may be a trial baloon for WDW.

No, nothing to discuss unless you want to discuss if Landry's will be opening another themed restaurant or if Coach will be opening a store. Besides, it's no longer Pleasure Island, it's being renamed, "Retailers Island".

The new backstory will be that a large conglomerate came in and bought out the Merriweather family so they could develop the area into a strip mall.

That some will still hold out hope, or that that it will reopen? I'm talking the former.

I'm with MG though in the hope that it WILL return in some form still, but elsewhere. There is no reason for it to be in PI any more, since PI isn't any more. I hope they change the name. "DTD Central" or something.

I don't know. When Disney gets rid of something, it doesn't come back......... Mr. Toads Wild Ride, Horizons, to mention a couple.

. . .Figment, Early Entry. . . Sometimes things do come back, just not in the same form. (And in those two examples, not as good as the original.) I still think there's hope for the Club to return in some form, though do think it will be a while before they would be willing to bring it back, since I don't think they want to give the impression that they were wrong. I think the actual AC wasn't ever going to come back, if for no other reason than the fact that the building is apparently in really bad shape. Plus there's that pesky outsourcing thing.

But I think the idea of the Club, plus the storylines and characters, are too good to abandon forever. I don't know if Disney will ever decide to revisit the Club in some way (and I don't know if it would be in a form that fans would like), but I still have hope that they will open a new Adventurers Club in Florida at some point.

I'll be leaving for WDW tomorrow for my first post-AC trip. If it weren't for Christmas shopping, I think I would avoid DTD completely in protest.

Where is the best place to lay the memorial wreath?

You should have got one of those RIP tombstones when the stores had them at Halloween.

those are some interesting new pieces of information. It has been pretty clear something is going on with Mannequins, but the question has been WHAT. I wonder if it's a steakhouse going into mannequins. I guess that would be fitting since it always was a meat market

I just want them to move on. Get rid of the sign, try to make it less painful. I still hold that they should have kept the clubs open longer. Obviously they just wanted out and were going to get out no matter what it took.

Ditto...I genuinely just laughed out loud at my desk here.

That still seems an odd building to try to put a restaurant in. And really, I don't know that Raglan and Paradisio are doing so well that I would want to open a third competitor right on top of them.

But once again I'm looking for logic from a management team that seems incapable of using it...
