Eight years ago today, Friday June 27, 2008, Disney dropped the bombshell! Pleasure Island comedy and dance clubs would be closing forever in exactly 3 months.....September 27, 2008. The announcement was made late enough in the day such that Disney thought it wouldn't lead to much "bad press". But the internet era had already begun and DisBoards posted the news immediately followed by the Orlando Sentinel. Here is a link to that Saturday's Orlando Sentinel article entitled "The Party's Over At Pleasure Island". Long live Pleasure Island!
