PI Update: Does New DVC President Help Pleasure Island?
Original DCL ships Disney Wonder and Disney Magic always had areas that in the evening became adults-only. The clubs and bars became thee place to party! I recall a great time at Wavebands on the Wonder! Now DCL's newest ships, conceived under Holz's watch, include what the brochure describes as "a whole host of vibrant nightspots (that) invite you to play across an entire entertainment district." WOW, sounds just like PI. Apparently Holz understands that while you want to cater to families primarily, that does not preclude offering something for adults too. DCL is Disney's most profitable division. So hopefully Holz brings that same passion to the table at DVC, understanding that you can sell a lot more timeshare units if you offer something that broadens your prospective customer base beyond just families and retirees. Reporting directly to Tom Staggs, Holz is in a unique position to argue that the PI secret needs to get solved now and must include some adult-only options!
