Rumors Rumors Rumors

Every few months the rumor mill cranks up again about Pleasure Island. We're never really sure if old rumors are just recirculating or if these are actually new rumors. Certainly all those buildings sitting empty when they could be earning revenue, even temporarily, does lend itself to speculation. So since it's been awhile since we've visited the mill, I thought it would be a good time to do so.

1. The Adventurers Club reopening in some form (dinner show?) rumor is still floating around out there.

2. The 8TRAX/Mannequins reopening in some form rumor is still out there. We know the clubs have been gutted but that doesn't mean someone couldn't put new, modern electronics in and reopen it. Supposedly the dance floor in Mannequins is still there. The latest version of this rumor had 8TRAX reopening again as a 70's Club and Mannequins reopening with the dance floor but perhaps with a different music format. The magic in Mannequins has always been that revolving floor!

3. A source says the rumor about Disney Quest shutting down to be replaced with an ESPN Zone is true.

4. Soundstage and Motion become restaurants under the latest rumors.

5. Sources indicated that there might be a PI announcement in July.

6. Finally, and this is really whacky beyond belief....the Virgin Megastore is going to house a display of gowns formerly owned by....get this...Princess Diana. No, quit laughing! That's the rumor.

So there you have them. And all of them (except #6) are viable possibilities! :)

I wish this was a rumor:

Opening in early July 2009 in Downtown Disney®, “DIANA – The People’s Princess” is a new, limited-time experience that showcases the life and story of one of the most iconic and inspirational figures in recent history, Princess Diana. A sampling of the royal dresses she chose to auction for charity and hundreds of authentic artifacts relating to her life will be on display in a 17,500-square-foot setting at Downtown Disney® West Side, adjacent to DisneyQuest®.
This unique exhibition is one of the largest collections of royal dresses and rare artifacts ever assembled for an American audience and provides an in-depth historical perspective of her life. The exhibit includes five rarely seen royal dresses worn by Princess Diana.
Tickets may be purchased at the exhibit: $14.50 (ages 10 and above), $5 (ages 3-9). The exhibition will be on display through November 30, 2009. Hours are 11 a.m.-11 p.m. daily.
We look forward to The People’s Princess Charitable Foundation bringing this unique experience to our Downtown Disney® Guests and remain committed to offering new and exciting experiences that they can only have at the Walt Disney World® Resort.
