Today is September 27th and that marks the 4th anniversary of Disney's largest blunder, the closing of the Pleasure Island dance and comedy clubs in order to replace them with.....nothing. That's not to say progress wasn't made this past year. Sources told the Blog early in the year that Hyperion Wharf was indeed cancelled because it was too much like the Boardwalk and vendors over there complained. But other than that, nothing happened this year. Every remaining club building that closed 4 years ago remains exactly that way today with nothing new in any of them and nothing announced. We're hopeful that there will be an announcement in October about what is coming. Expect Hyperion Wharf 2.0, just with a different name and different theme, but much the same. We're hoping a reopened Mannequins and Comedy Warehouse will be part of it but Disney has allegedly been putting disinformation onto social media websites these past few months, so don't count on it. Maybe we'll know more about it by the time the 5th anniversary rolls around next September.
