Club Reports: Planet Hollywood, Bongos Cuban Cafe, Atlantic Dance Hall

Friday night visit to the Land of the Mouse beginning with Planet Hollywood at Downtown Disney.
Pleasure Island and Disney's only female disk jockey, DJ Talie (Motion, Atlantic Dance, PI Live, Celebrate Tonight, Club 626) entertaining the diners!
She was putting out all Top 40/EDM during my visit and she tells me that's what people are asking for both at the Planet (where she works Fridays & Saturdays) and at Atlantic Dance (where she works Tuesdays).
No worries!  "Jennie: is floating again outside!
First time visit to Bongos Cuban Cafe at Downtown Disney West Side.  Much like Latin Quarter at CityWalk, the restaurant turns into a club later in the evening on Fridays and Saturdays.
DJ Cano putting out Reggaeton, House and into Salsa during my visit.
Unlike LQ, they have a live band here and the DJ alternates between sets.  It was jamming for the DJ though with little room to move!
No cover last night; I know sometimes they charge $5.
Last stop Atlantic Dance Hall, the only dance club still owned and operated by the Mouse.
DJ Tony Z (Le Rouge, Planet Hollywood, Paradiso 37) on the boards this evening.
Moderate-sized crowd on hand.
The music is a mix of whatever people request but there was a lot of House and Dance last night along with the requisite Hip Hop and 80's Oldies.
Lighting Tech Alisa (Mannequins, House of Blues, EPCOT) looks on as I ADH....for the first time ever....a Benny Benassi Dubstep song followed by a Steve Aoki song!  WOW!
I also visited beautiful Pleasure Island last night and will post that article on Monday.
