Rumor Updates

I heard via e-mail today from someone who says that there really are no plans to reopen Mannequins or 8TRAX. Hey, that person writing me may be correct. We don't know. Last night's posting was just repeating fresh rumors that came together earlier in the evening. Rumors are rumors. The accuracy rate is poor. If any Disney official would like to write in and give us the straight story, I would publish it immediately as fact.

One update I have today concerns the move of PI Live over to the far west section of Pleasure Island. Supposedly there will be some type of "dueling DJ's" thing over there with one DJ in the booth and the other down on the ground with the people passing through. Not sure how this will play out but it would liven things up on that end of the island.

Over on the Disney boards poster Maistre Gracey quotes sources telling him that Adventurers Club will be reopening in 2010 as a dinner show type club. That does sound like a viable way to get AC to earn revenue since presumably all future operations must pay for themselves and earn a profit.

Again...just rumors!

This is one of the worst decisions Disney has made. Bring the island back, put the gates up, 21 and up, keep the kids and the strollers off after 8 p.m. I don't care if they brought the clubs back slowly, i just want to see it back. It's not about alcohol,like some other websites have mentioned, it's about the music, the atmosphere and the dancing. There are no other clubs around. Please Disney, we will make it worth you while.

Well unfortunately they probably can't lock the place up anymore in the evening because there are a number of non-Disney shops on the island now. The new South/Central American restaurant will also rely heavily on customers being able to access the place without paying a cover charge. Any reopened version of PI would have to co-exist with the general public.

They need to open the beach club and motion buildings and gate off the two walk ways to get to them. Those two buildings are quite large with outdoor areas behind, beside and infront of the buildings. Charge a fee to get into the area that would cover both clubs. This would allow normal functions to happen with the shops and also allow and adults area. They would end up having 2 stages, one in each club. Several bars including the one outside and could play whatever music they wanted. Makes to much sense. lol

Again, I think any reopened version of the PI clubs will have to coexist with the shops and restaurants. We're too far beyond having the gated island we used to have. These other places must have foot traffic. I would think they are pretty unhappy right now with the conditions out there.

Thats the beauty of the idea, Motion and the beach club sit off to the side of the main walkway. Gate only the two walk ways to the area these two clubs are in. The walkway to the right of the cigar shop and the walk to the left of the cigar shop, people can still get in the cigar shop because the entrance is off of the main walk way. There are no shops in this area and plenty of room, plus the additional outside bar. Or maybe not...lol

For now I'm just hoping, like we all are, that the rumors are true and some clubs will reopen!
