    A good read? More like a "rub more salt and whisky into the wound" read.

    I think I would rather see the AC completely torn down, then have the repurposed building be a constant reminder of what used to be. Still sad though.

    Re: BET Sound Stage and AC to be torn down

    It's so depressing walking through Pleasure Island. I remember spending time at the Comedy Club and the Adventurer's Club after leaving business meetings just to relax. I was really bummed when I heard they closed AC as it was by far my favorite part of the Downtown Disney experience.

    It was actually by far my favorite part of the Walt Disney World experience.

    Uh, it doesn't say they will be rebuilt. It seems to hint that something else will be taking thier place.

    So sad
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Time for them to build some new and unique shopping experiences. Maybe they'll put in a Build-a-Bear or a RiteAid. How exciting!

    Good Riddance. I never cared for those clubs.. or most of PI in the first place. Now if they could only bulldoze the entire West Side with PI, I'd be a happy camper.

    The beauty of WDW is that there is something for everyone. To tear down what one person doesn't like is taking away what somebody else DOES like.

    Re: BET Sound Stage and AC to be torn down

    I walked by it on my trip this past Aug. and snapped another pic of the building. Not sure why except I miss the AC so much. I hated seeing it close. So many good memories. My dad was picked for one of the skits in the library or study back in 1996. I am so glad my mom taped it on the camcorder because it brings back memories.

    I had some real good times at Manequeens! LoL

    We were sent over there with the message that only we would defend Disney quality.. We learnt quickly that the Japanese culture speaks to a level of quality that is hard to comprehend. They were all unbelievably skilled and willing to do the right thing.
