Our Orlando Reporter Adam Roth (of WDWCelebrations and Dreamfinder Forever) has provided us with a great update of what’s going on at the Downtown Disney District as of late. Here’s what’s new and notable:
Contrary to popular belief, this place still exists
To bring some life to the area, merchandise carts have been strategically placed throughout Pleasure Island
A shuttered Comedy Warehouse
A shuttered BET Soundstage Club
“We may not have a club, but we have the next best thing….PIZZA!!!”
Adventurer’s Club awaiting someone to rent it out
I don’t think so…
Construction of the “El Dolbe” Restaurant continues
A shuttered 8-Trax
Where you could buy tickets, if something was operating
A shuttered Mannequins
A look inside reveals…stairs :(
They’re trying their best to keep this place alive without clubs
To keep the Island from becoming a ghost town, PI Live has returned
They actually have a DJ in there playing music and videos for the entire Island, a good show by Disney in this tough situation
No more Motion
Not much going on inside
The moon keeps smiling down on the darkened landscape
Some of the original “story” plaques for Pleasure Island
Over to the Marketplace, all decked out for the season
Performers in front of the Marketplace Tree
Some minor work going on outside Fulton’s Crab House
It’s Stone Crab Season!!!
That skeleton of a large extinct creature can only mean one thing….
A new family dining experience!
Dr. Jones I presume
Thanks Adam for a T-rrific (really corny joke) photo report!!!
