Shortly after Pleasure Island closed there were several rumors circulating that Disney was secretly building a Pleasure Island 2.0 somewhere else on property. It would have been a wonderful surprise to PI fans and all adult Disney guests. One rumor referred to something being developed just beyond the Coronado SpringsResort. Of course anyone in the know recognized that as the still-doomed Flamingo Crossings development. A different rumor referred to something along US 192 near the Osceola County line. Nothing ever became of that rumor and my drive along that highway produced no hints of construction.
Until now. Disney has filed plans with Orange County for some sort of development along US 192 (Florida State Road 530) to be called Black Lake Village. Deciphering the 156 page plan, the best I can come up with to describe it is as a quality shopping center similar to Crossroads. But this is not PI 2.0. There are many prohibited uses and unfortunately as you can see in the snippet above, Rule 1.47.3 prevents bars and night clubs. So we'll have to continue to dream!
