    Re: Return our Adventureres Club

    Kungaloosh Adventurers,

    Oh boy, I though Disney Parks Blog had learned not to ask questions they didn't want true answers to, but the one I just found is, "What’s your favorite 'Disneyland After Dark' entertainment memory?" Now even though this is dealing with Disneyland, I'm sure we can retrofit it to our needs!

    Also, they are advertising "Up Close With Indy Jones at Table in Wonderland" which I plan on commenting that it has been done, but so much better for ConGaloosh 2010 with true Adventurers enteraining the crowd!

    Please Adventurers, we need to continue to let Disney know the mistake they made on Sept. 27, 2008 and we are not going to let them forget that we want our Club back. Lets get commenting!

    What’s your favorite "Disneyland After Dark" entertainment memory?

    Re: Return our Adventureres Club

    Kungaloosh Adventurers,
    Well the past few days have provided interesting rumors. The Save Pleasure Island Blog is covering the developing story of how Mannequins & 8TRAX exterior show lighting has been relit and managers have been seen coming in and out of the Adventurers Club! Some are saying that there is talk that the Hyperion Wharf project has been postponed or perhaps even canceled!
    Read all about it here

    http://www.savepleasureisland.blogspot.com/[/URL]

    If this is true, then it may be time for another round of letter writting to the upper Disney Management to get them set on the correct path of Adventure!

    Also, the Disney Parks Blog's latest post that screams, "lets talk about the Adventurers Club", is "Wild Africa Trek Gets More Adventurous at Disney’s Animal Kingdom" featuring an interview with the Father of the Adventurer Club, Joe Rohde! Let's get a goodly number of posts up on this one Adventurers, to show Joe and Disney how we feel about the pearl that is our Club!

    Re: Return our Adventureres Club

    Kungaloosh Adventurers,

    To start off, let us recap the recent rumors going around about Merriweather's Island. According to recent rumors, Hyperion Wharf has been put on hold if not canceled; There is a movement for 3rd parties to put clubs back on Pleasure Island; The Adventurers Club puppet of Col. Suchbecnch recently went up for auction in a cast members only section on WDW only for a few days later to be removed from auction to be placed in a safe location; and many other positive rumors are surfacing every day!

    King Bob of the “Save Pleasure Island” Blogspot has called all lovers of Pleasure Island to arms for one more letter writing campaign to the Executives of the Walt Disney Company imploring them to bring back our beloved nightlife capital of Walt Disney World! Save Pleasure Island
    Many have started to respond to this new movement and recently on the WDWMagic Forum, Lee received this response from Ana Brady of Guest Services:

    Dear Lee,
    We appreciate the uniqueness of the email you sent to Tom Staggs and other members of our Leadership teams. We also appreciate your passion for the Adventurer’s Club and enthusiasm for our product offerings. We recognize that this ‘entertainment adventure’ was a unique experience and will certainly be missed by many loyal Fans, like yourself. Tom has personally spent a number of great evenings there and will miss it himself.
    With that in mind, you will be happy to know that our Creative team is constantly exploring options for us to reintroduce the spirit of the Adventurer’s Club at our Walt Disney World Resort. It is too early to say when or in what form that might happen, but we will continue to look in the hope of finding the right opportunity.
    Please also understand that a tremendous amount of thought went into our decision for the creation of a new vision for Downtown Disney®. As we look to the future, we are excited about the evolution that will occur over the next few years, introducing a brand new mix of shopping, dining and other opportunities for our Guests' enjoyment.
    Thank you again for taking the time to share your thoughts with us.
    Sincerely,
    Ana Brady
    Guest Services
    Walt Disney World Resort
    2290200
    While many would think that this response will hamper out efforts, I say that we use this to our advantage. From here on out, copy/past this response into every e-mail and letter that is sent with a message reading along the lines of, “I am well aware of the canned response that has been drafted to respond to letters of this nature and since I took the time to write to you I would appreciate you taking the time to actually respond to this issue that will not go away until the Adventurers Club has been reopen on Walt Disney World property”. Also a nice stinger along the lines of,“ Reintroducing the spirit of the Adventurer’s Club is not the same as re-opening the Adventurers Club, which is what your customers are truly asking for” would hopefully get the point accross!

    We are making progress Adventurers, with Hyperion Wharf on hold, this is the time to once again let the Disney Company here us singing the song of Adventurers, the song that is calling us back to home to 5189 Hill St. for another Hoopla!

    Re: Return our Adventureres Club

    We should have a "Save the Adventurer's Club" meet at the new Trader Sam's location at the DLH, to show West Coast support for the East Coast Adventurers Club ~ Perhaps we could even dub Trader Sam's as "Adventurers' Club ~ West!

    Re: Return our Adventureres Club

    Happy 4th of July Everyone! And for you Pleasure Island Histarians out there:

    The story begins in New South Frewsberg, Pennsylvania, on July 4th, 1873. “Gold Rush Gus” Pleasure, free-wheeling millionaire prospector/explorer, paces in his study. A smiling nurse enters and announces the birth of a bouncing baby boy to him and his wife, the former Miss Lydia LaMarr, an early star of the American stage (known professionally as “The American Venus”). The boy is named “Merriweather” after Gus’ own father.
    ~An exerpt from "The Pleasure Island Papers"

    Happy 138th Birthday, Merriweather Adam Pleasure! May your Island revive this year and once again bring joy to Adventurers everywhere!


    M. A. Pleasure

    Also, I'd like to extend a Happy 110th Birthday to Stewart Pleasure, 106th Birthday to Henry Pleasure and 100th Birthday to Merriam Pleasure. Also Happy 85th Wedding Anniversary to Henry Pleasure and Zenobia Dubois and 78th Wedding Anniversary to Merriam Pleasure and Raoul Manzanera! Oh the Pleasure Family, as American as apple pie and Walter Elias Disney (Who just so happened to be Merriweather's Uncle)!

    Some days you eat the mouse.

    Re: Return our Adventureres Club

    Kungaloosh again Adventurers,

    The Disney Parks Blog now wants to hear about our patriotic traditions for the 4th of July. Since it is Merriweather Pleasure's Birthday, let us once again flood the Blog with our love of the Adventurers Club and how that tradition needs to be back by Merriweather's next Birthday!

    Re: Return our Adventureres Club

    Kungaloosh Adventurers,

    Here it is folks, Disney Parks Blog has announced that Hyperion Wharf has been put on hold and now is the time to strike again! http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blo...disney-update/ Please, please, please flood the Blog's comment section with our need for the immediate return of the Adventurers Club. Also as reported on the Save Pleasure Island Blog http://savepleasureisland.blogspot.c...dent-help.html, the new shakeup of Disney upper management has placed Karl Holz (President of the Disney Cruise Line and former Vice President of Downtown Disney and Pleasure Island) in charge of The Disney Vacation Club! Since he brought a grand nightclub scene to his ships, he most certainly can do the same for his old stomping grounds. Please drop him a line at:

    Karl L Holz
    President
    Disney Cruise Line and New Vacation Ops
    200 Celebration Pl
    Kissimmee, FL 34747

    [email protected]

    We can, as will win this battle Adventurers! One of my sources has told me that our likelyhood of success has greatly increased since the first few months of Disneyland's Trader Sam's Bar has been a massive success, even though they can seat only 60 people. Good thing our Club can fit 300! (I know, I was there when we tried!) Keep the spirit alive Adventureres and continue to dress for the hunt!

    Re: Return our Adventurer's Club

    Kungaloosh Adventurers,

    We are fast approaching Sept. 30, the beginning of the annual Adventurers Club Convention, the ConGaloosh! For the past two years, we adventurers have met at Walt Disney World for a weekend of exploring, bar hopping, singing and balderdashing. In general, it is one great big Hoopla! Unfortunately, this year Disney is not releasing the Club Characters to perform a show, but that will not keep true adventurers down! It is more important than ever that this year’s convention is well attended to send a message to Disney that we still want our Club returned. With Adventurers Club references springing up all over the world, i.e. Trader Sam’s at Disneyland, Aunty's Beach House in Aulani, The Adventurers Club Restaurant at Hong Kong Disneyland and the rumored connection between the Club and Tokyo Disney S.E.A., something has to give soon to return the homebase of adventure to Walt Disney World!

    In addition, after great consideration, the powers in charge of the Congaloosh have made this years gathering FREE! There is still a great lineup of events and adventurers, including a rumored Adventureland Challenge lead by the infamous “Right Guard” Ian himself! So please follow this link to check out the event and sign up to attend Congaloosh 2011!

    Re: Return our Adventurer's Club

    Kungaloosh Adventurers,

    So an interesting development has surfaced today.
    Check this out: http://www.epcyclopedia.com/2011/08/08/additional-adventurers-club-permit-filed"]http://www.epcyclopedia.com/2011/08/08/additional-adventurers-club-permit-filed[/URL]

    Demolition for 518 Hill Street is nowhere to be found in the new notices filed by Disney, but IMPROVEMENTS are! Things are looking up Adventurers, but a few emails to right peolpe (you know who they are) still couldn't hurt!

    Re: Return our Adventurer's Club

    I really do hope the Club members can return from their adventures.

    The cynic in me though says that "renovations" could also mean "conversion to store".

    I see no downside in Disney re-opening this club. It was really, really cool when it was open.

    Ah, prefect timing Disney Parks Blog. Just as we all are waiting to hear what D23 has to say, Disney has provided us with a look inside the original Adventurers Club. Club 33, walt Disney's personal bar for entertaining friends and dignitaries. Have a look around on the blog, and by all means comment on how much we want to get back into our Club dedicated to adventure!

    Re: Return our Adventureres Club

    Good Morning Adventurers! OK, I know I keep posting Disney Park Blog entries to comment on, but this is one that MUST be addressed. Tom Staggs (Who I still believe is our best man to bring back our Club) has posted his own Blog entry thanking those who attended D23. There have been some unhappy remarks on how nothing new was presented and "Richard from LA" got in his own two cents of "No word at all about what will be done at Pleasure Island? Haven’t you been listening to the Disney fans who want the Adventurers Club and other PI nightclubs reopened?" From what I've heard, Tom did the same thing for Hyperion Wharf as he did for the Fantasyland Expansion: he stepped into the planning room and said something along the lines of "No one wants more shopping and dining. This is dumb, fix it". This is the man that we must reach Adventurers and I keep hearing that our cry is being heard higher and higher up the Disney ladder, so please Adventurers, let the flood gates open once more!

    Re: Return our Adventurer's Club

    Ah, I never shall tire of Right Guard's devotion to the club! Just up this morning on the "Save the Adventurers Club" Facebook group:


    "Then the Exec thought of something he hadn't before. The Adventurers Club, he thought, can't be replaced by a store! For the Adventurers Club, means oh so much more!"


    Dear Adventurers,

    Just because the props and signage has been removed from our beloved Adventurers Club, does not mean it is time to give up. On the contrary, this is the time that will prove our resolve more than ever. We know that the building is not going to be demolished (1. The most recent permits show nothing about demolition, and 2. Disney wouldn't spend the money to have the sign paved over if the building was coming down) therefore, we can not let Disney forget that we are still here and we will continue sining the song of Adventurers, louder and louder until we attend the next Hoopla in 5189 Hill St.! Please, start writing letters, e-mail, and call the phone numbers of everyone that has been listed on the list of names [provided below]. We will not let our Club go gentle into that good night, it shall rise again!

    Kungaloosh!
