PI Update: First Staging Area Arrives

Beautiful Pleasure Island on a Wednesday night, jammed with summer crowds!
The so-called "Seed & Mulch" area where Rock'n'Roll Beach Club and Motion used to stand is now the first construction staging area!  Difficult to see in this photo, dozens of pallets of materials have been dropped here.  A second staging area, where demolition / construction vehicles are to park, is being created in Parking Lot E adjacent Pleasure IslandIsland sources say that along with the demolition of Comedy Warehouse and Laffers Cantina, one of the earliest phases of work will be the construction of the first of two parking garages.
PI Live Bar has closed.
A cart serving shaved ice has been added and is located on the No. 1 Bridge from Downtown Disney Marketplace.
Mannequins looking spiffy!  But for how much longer?
Over on the Waterside Stage, the "Kids Dance Party" aka "Waterside Dance Party".
 Former "Kids Dance Party" DJ's are now handling the EDM-based Monsters University Homecoming parties over at Disney Hollywood Studios!  For June and July, DJ Elliot is over there on Sunday/Monday/Wednesday, DJ Lon is Tuesday/Thursday and DJ Tony Messina on Friday/Saturday.
DJ Steve was leading the action last night!
I've never sat through an entire 3-hour party so I'm not sure if each DJ does their own show or if they all follow the same music script.
The peeps want DJ's!  And with stadium seating full and people even dancing off in the side areas, a good time was had by all!
