PI Update: Stairway To Heaven

Mannequins' "stairway to heaven".  Located on the side of the club, it took patrons arriving for the first time on crowded nights up to the second floor.  It's last use was on the Thursday night of the final weekend, Castmember Night, when long lines outside were funneled through queues to the base of the stairs.
Views from the upstairs railing down to the dance floor often brought you face-to-face with some of the props that were lowered from the rafters.
The famous revolving dance floor.  While the club's overhead lighting did shine down, unique to this dance floor was lighting from below the floor that shined upward through translucent panels as the moving floor passed over them!
A clearer view of the lighted revolving floor.  No wonder it was one of the nation's top dance clubs.  And that floor is still in there, hopefully to be used again!  Only the best from Disney Imagineers!  Big thanks to DJMadManRay for the four pictures posted above.
Standing still along the edge versus those passing by.  If you were looking for someone, you just had to wait a minute or so for all the dancers to circle by!
And a good time was had by all!
