    Disney reshapes nightlife complex - Orlando Sentinel - 5/10/06

    Disney reshapes nightlife complex
    The goal is to make the attraction more accessible -- and kid-friendly.

    Once a haven for grown-ups looking to dance the night away, Disney's Pleasure Island is morphing into a place where Mom, Dad and the little ones can feel comfortable -- but the wild uncle is still welcome.

    The transformation, part of a revamped night-life strategy for Walt Disney World, is not just an image makeover. Bulldozers are involved.

    Disney is tearing out bridges, building a bigger, more prominent new bridge, knocking down two outdoor music stages, cutting a building in half, leveling a hill, opening up vistas of the lake and getting away from the back-alley warehouse-district look.

    The goal is to merge Pleasure Island more with the other two districts of Downtown Disney -- geographically and in appeal.
    Growing older is manditory
    Growing up is however, optional

    Hmmmm. They make it sound so good. But how do you open up vistas of the lake without removing some of the clubs that block that view? If they save only one thing on that island, please let it be the Adventurer's Club.

    Sounds like they're revamping it into "Sodom and Go more a"

    if you notice the article only mentioned three clubs. what about the rest? and if they are doing this in order to give their guests a nightime alternative and thus keep them on property.. it will work. as the article says, the local either go to churchstreet or citywalk. I must admit as a parent I wouldn't feel comfortable taking my prteen or even teen kids to citywalk.
