I'm guessing they'll site the economy, although after their earnings report, that is no longer valid. They might be focusing on Fantasyland, but I doubt that as well.

My guess... bad management. The "cleaning lady" strikes again.

Sell and Ship (an EBAY seller) is a good one too. They just sold a lot of props from Disneylands now defunct Country Bears. I really wanted the Jug but it went for more than I can afford now. They do have a sheep from Mr Toad's right now, but I'm sure the reserve is super high. I've bought a few things from both them and Mouse surplus and have excellent service with both.

I just hope they do SOMETHING with it... I hate when they leave buildings empty... heck, the fact that wonders of life is still just sitting there and only used for special events or the old odessey restaurant still bugs me.

I'd rather have 3rd party stuff like a Lucky Strike or something like that than empty buildings. Sigh... remember when Disney did original stuff?

DH and I went to Disney a few weeks ago and visited Rix Lounge a Coronado Springs, a very cool place, and the Boardwalk area around Jellyrolls and Atlantic Dance. Rix and Jellyrolls were dead and Atlantic Dance was closed. Adults need somewhere to go in the evenings, but they have to know they exist. I also think that they should make some more club/lounges like Rix. Just my two cents!
yeah, ADH is closed Sun/Mon. Rix is rarely busy from what I know, and Jellyrools can get packed, but if it's slow, then it's slow.

They don't promote because they don't want adults having adult fun. That's really what it comes down to. ADH and Jellyrolls are contracted by the swan/dolphin for conventions, so Disney doesn't care to promote them, plus they don't want drunk guests at 2am waking up hotel patrons. That is why PI was good in its location, but we all know that.

Yea, regarding the economy, absolutley. The parks and restaurants were jammed. There is no longer a "recession" at WDW. People are going in droves. I think we may have had a month or two of semi-"quiet" times there, but that is all gone. Tourists are back with a vengence.

Can I ask why you think this is morbid? I am just curious, thanks.

Thats a door from the Mark IV monorail red, which has been out of service since 1991.

I don't think monorail red was involved in the crash - I think the ones involved were purple and the darker pink. I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure I remember seeing monorail red in service shortly after the accident.

Monorails Pink and Purple were involved in the crash. Monorail Red was not.

The shape of the door itself tells me it is not a Mark VI door anyways...but a Mark IV as mentioned. An end car from Monorail Red exists and is privately owned I believe.

Here's the link to their flyer: http://savepleasureisland.blogspot.c.../pi-at-ph.html

Bartender Dawn from Mannequins will be there but it's not clear that this will really be a PI reunion.

the PI at Phouse tag line was used last year as well. It's clearly a way for them to capitalize on the Thurs night gay days crowd that used to go to Mannequins.

There is a CM preview of MSEP on Thurs night so I'll be going to that I think.
