It was another hot and muggy day in Orlando today. Us Floridians put up with 3 months of misery in exchange for 9 months of bliss. But if you're going to be miserable, what better place to be that than beautiful Pleasure Island.

Entertainment now seems to be spread every hundred feet or so across the island and the West Side! Outside Raglan Road we had some Irish step dancers. Outside Paradiso 37 we had a guitar duo. Passing Paradiso later in the evening, the bar/restaurant was playing their Techno tape, something I've heard a number of times there and its the best music on the island, IMO. Eat to the beat!
Outside Soundstage the zither player was gone, replaced with Flamenco. This guy did draw a bit of crowd who cheered each song. He claims to have finished 70th on America's Got Talent. Over at Laffers Cantina we have a new addition: waitress service Yes folks, there is now a server that works the crowd taking drink orders. This young lady normally works at Cirque. Although not said, I imagine they're getting ready for when the ultralounge is installed and they'll need at least a couple servers. No word yet on when the outdoor lounge furniture which sources say has been ordered will arrive on the island.
At Celebration Plaza, a bongo trio. Outside Wetzel's Pretzels, a singing duo. (At least this act gave me something to look at!)
Across from Magnetron, a folk singer drew a large crowd. Not new of course, a singer on the porch at House of Blues.
To be honest with you, one of the larger crowds tonight was on the #3 bridge watching four northern river otters frolicking along the PI shore with Village Lake!
Sources tell me that all these entertainment acts are actually paid auditions. They're paid but they're also auditioning. That's why there are so many different acts. Supposedly the best acts will stay. But for how long will they stay....no one seems to know.
