BREAKING NEWS: Celebrate Tonight Ending
One of my Pleasure Island sources is reporting this evening that the ill-conceived Celebrate Tonight show will be closing as of June 26th. UPDATE: I have now confirmed this through multiple sources.
If you look back at my February 22nd article, I speculated that CT might be closing. At that time I pointed out that CT was no longer listed in the Disney Guidemap for Downtown Disney. I have also related the closing of CT with the beginning of PI demolitions. For instance, if they are going to bring the wrecking ball to the Soundstage/Adventurers Club building, they can't have a street party taking place at Celebration Plaza because pedestrians passing through will need that space to bypass the construction walls that must go up there. So if CT is really ending, perhaps the demolitions are finally going to begin! Or maybe they just are putting Celebrate Tonight out of its misery!
I know the DJ's and staff have worked hard to try to make it work, often in crappy weather. They just did not have much to work with. If they really want to liven up the island, reopen some of the clubs!
