    Re: Return our Adventurer's Club

    Well Adventurers, unfortunately today we lost another proud building of Merriweather Pleasure's design and while we may be losing a few more in the days to come, take solace in the fact that our beloved Adventurers Club is not facing this fate. How am I so sure? Two items, 1.) The Landings Concept Art shows the Adventurers Club still standing,




    as does 2.) The current DTD maps indicating both Mannequins and The Adventurers Club surviving.


    Never give up Adventurers, one day we will be enjoying another Hoopla! Our Club may go through some changes before they get it right again, but by Merriweather, our Club will rise again!

    Actually if the Adventurer's Club were to be resurrected anywhere I would love to see it done on Disney Cruise. The biggest reason being that there is very little for adults to do outside of music/dance clubs. A little theater show exclusively for adults would be a great alternative that doesn't involve constant loud music.

    But I am in agreement with getting rid of Rainforest Cafe and putting in something more creative in DAK.

    Please to remember the 27th of September
    When Disney dissatisfied Guests a lot.
    I see no reason why Disney's Pleasure Island treason
    Should ever be forgot...
    Five years ago Disney made a great mistake. While many still do not think that we shall ever see our beloved Club again, there are still many who will not give up hope. The Club still stands and still remains in the concept art of the Downtown Disney refurb, so only time shall tell. In the meantime Adventurers, tonight there shall be a grand gathering of Adventurers and a full compliment of permanent members enjoying a show entitled "Adventures in Charity".

    Re: Return our Adventurer's Club

    Kungaloosh Adventurers,

    This post has been a long time coming, but this Thanksgiving, I am thankful for the combined efforts of the ConGaloosh Society and the newly formed Adventurers In Charity organization for their continued success in keeping Merriweather Adam Pleasure’s Adventurers Club alive! This year’s event was certainly one for the books!

    It all started on the evening of Thursday, Sept. 26th with an evening at Dixie Landing’s River Roost Lounge to enjoy fresh Kungaloosh’s and Yeehaw Bob's all night Hoopla! Many a Club favorite was played, including “Those Were The Days”, “That’s Amore”, “The Beer Song”, and of course “When the Saints Go Marching In”!


    Friday, Sept. 27th we were treated at Disney’s Art of Animation resort, to a very informative lecture from Senior Costume Designer, Matt Davidson


    about some of the work and design that went into our beloved Club! Not only were we shown his amazing concept art of our favorite characters,





    but also learned about alternate designs, such as Fletcher Hodges in the infamous grass skirt and Pamelia (Boom Boom) Perkins and her pet detonating plunger, for when she was a demolitions expert!


    As well as characters that were being proposed to be added to the club just before the closing announcements such as, Sheba, an out of work Hollywood actress having a fling with Dave the Sound Guy and a Sea Captain who's story of how he lost a hand changes with each telling!


    The night then continued on to Sleuth's on International Dr. for MomGaloosh, a night of comedy with some of our favorite Club actors.



    Then, Saturday, Sept. 28th we gathered at Animal Kingdom. Due to scheduling conflicts, The Anandapur Challenge once again had to be postponed, but we enjoyed the new Wilderness Explorers attraction,



    while we waited with baited breath for the evening’s premier performance of Adventures In Charity. The Holiday Inn on 535 may never recover from that amount of pure Adventure that took place that night! We were greeted by tables of artifacts and treasures up for silent auction, as well as original pieces of art all in honor of 5189 Hill St. and it’s Permanent Members! The show began with the entrance of the evenings performers: Karl Anthony, Joy Anderson Bowes, Phil Card, John Connon, Mindy Walley Dietterick, Glenn Gover, Philip Nolen, Eric Pinder, Joe Reed, Sheila Smith Ward and Jennifer Warren in a rousing return of “The Happy Wanderer”.



    All this madness was lead by the Emcee of the evening Graham Murphy


    and due to contractual restrictions, Fingers Zambezi was unable to be our paranormal prodigy of the keys, so in his place we had his distant relation, Knuckles stood in and possessed the body of Jim Roberts as accompanist.



    The night continued with each actor informing us of the good works that their charity of choice and then performed their favorite Club song! We were treated to such classics as, “Sushi-Yucky”, “Stuff Like That There”, “Sheik of Araby” “Mutual Admiration Society” and three new tales of heroism in this years “B Cup”! At the evenings end, a certain Mr. Pleasure appeared



    after years of presumably being lost at sea to announce the winners of the silent auction and to inform us that we Adventurers In Charity had raised $9000 to be distributed to The Actors Fund, APOPA, The American Cancer Society, The American Diabetes Association, A Better Life Pet Rescue, The Dravet Foundation, The Garden Theatre, Harvest Time International, Haven of Hope AIDS Ministry!

    Sunday, Sept 29th the weekend of adventure wound down as we wandered World Showcase in search of Food, Wine and Club actors performing in their current Disney roles.



    Now, we can all hardly wait until next September when the most adventurous time of year returns! Thank you once again to the organizers of ConGaloosh and Adventures in Charity for a superb job this year and as always reminding us that “An Adventurers Life is Best”!



    P.S. Due to my camera being in the shop this year, thank you so much to members of the ConGaloosh Facebook group, Jennifer Figler, Adrian Plaw and John Majors for their excellent photography!

    Re: Return our Adventurer's Club

    Looks cool. Wish I could have been there for it. My next visit is in June and I will have to resort to my usual tribute of standing in front of the building and doing an honorary Kungaloosh salute while my wife rolls her eyes and tries not to be seen with me.

    Re: Return our Adventurer's Club

    Kungaloosh Adventurers,

    As is my tradition on this day each year, I give to you one of the most secret, and often overlooked Club tradition that occurred only at Midnight of Christmas Eve 1937, the annual Adventurers retelling of "T'was the Night Before Christmas". For full effect, press play at the stroke of midnight tonight, accompanied by your favorite Yuletide beverage: eggnog, wassail, Yakoose Mousse, or a Kungaloosh.

    Some days you eat the mouse.
    Some days the mouse eats you.
    But the Club still stands and hope remains!
    KUNGALOOSH!
