9/27/08 - The Demise of P.I.
WDW Monorail is the first to chime in on the WDW Forum about the impending closure of Pleasure Island clubs. It seems that Disney is going to make that real estate into something less 'adult' and more 'family oriented'. First Videopolis. Now this!

Micechat Other Parks

Well Summer is really here and with it comes the busy tourist seasons at all the domestic parks and vacation destinations. We've got quite the mixed bag of threads this week so lets dive in and see what's going on. ~elly

Guest decapitated by Batman: The Ride at Six Flags Over Georgia after hopping fence
Some sad news to start of this week brought to us by ManaByte. The death of the young man in this story just serves to remind us all why fences and safety signs at any resort destination are VERY important to pay attention to and follow. They really ARE there for our health.

Cheyenne Mountain Zoo and a side trip to Denver
Roo719 brings us some happier news with a lovely photo-tastic trip report from a recent zoo visit in Colorado.

San Diego County Fair - 2008
What better way to follow up one photo-tastic thread than with yet another! MickeyMaxx gives us a very colorful trip report for the San Diego County Fair, which makes me realize just how cheesy our State Fair is here in Nevada, tune back in August for that trip report.

It's a week of sixes. An avoidable accident at SIX Flags, SIX Clubs are closing at Pleasure Island and WALL•E makes over SIXty million at the Box Office -sir clinksalot

Disney to Close Six Clubs at Pleasure Island
Disney announced they will be closing 6 clubs at it's Pleasure Island complex located in Downtown Disney in Orlando. The changes have been rumored for years and while some of the club closures are no surprise, closures of the highly popular Adventurers Club and Mannequin's left many scratching their heads. Some restaurants such as Raglan Road will be remaining open. As long as we can still get the Bucket O' Booze, I'm okay.

'WALL•E' box-office
WALL•E, Disney/Pixar's latest animated movie made $62.5 million in it's debut weekend. Reviews for the movie were simply glowing leading into and throughout the weekend by both published reviewers and MiceChatters in the Entertainment Lounge.

Teenager Struck, Killed by Six Flags Batman Coaster
A 17 year old boy was struck and killed by the Batman: The Ride coaster at Six Flags Over Georgia on Saturday. There were conflicting reports of the youth trying to retrieve a hat or trying to get into the park without having to go to the front of the park. Either way, the accident was pretty avoidable considering the teen had to hop 2 6-foot fences to get into the ride area.
