Pleasure Island Then And Now

 While the building itself served as the home to Mannequins Dance Palace, the sign on the roof represented all of Pleasure Island.  It was brightly lit at night and could be seen from Buena Vista Drive and even from parts of Interstate 4.
Now home to Morimoto Asia, the sign on the roof no longer represents the entirety of Disney Springs, or even the so-called Landing. Instead, the sign now represents what was supposedly inside the building in the Disney Springs backstory, the Springs Bottling Company.  In the backstory, water from the springs in the foreground was bottled here. 
If you come inside, the bottling conveyor with old time bottles still snakes its way through the restaurant! Pretty clever theming.
