Blog reader Troy was recently running along Disney's Wine and Dine Half Marathon when he stumbled upon this AC group at one of the character stops along the course! When Troy expressed his expected surprise at seeing them, one said,
"Where have you been? We've been out here waiting for almost 10 years!"
During the early years after Pleasure Island's closure, mentioning anything PI was pretty much not allowed at Disney. As years dragged-on and the lack of anything happening on the Island became literally embarrassing, there was even that late summer 2011 putsch where nearly all remaining club signs and colors were removed. But in more recent years Disney has finally embraced its Pleasure Island past and we've seen Comedy Warehouse and Adventurers Club shows at various times across property. In 2014 there was even that Pleasure Island Rewind where the former clubs were actually celebrated! As we move toward the 10th anniversary of Pleasure Island closing, it would not surprise me to see many more offerings.
Thank you, Troy!
