Vibrant Disneys Pleasure Island
New Years Night Every Night At Downtown Disney!


SEPTEMBER 28, 2008

It's sad times....After close to 20 years in operation, Disneys Pleasure Island is undergoing a major overhaul. The 120-acre site will be re-themed as a restaurant district called "Disney Springs" The area will include a 'Town Center' a mixture of shops and dining venues, a colorful commercial dining district caled 'The Landing' again a dining venue over looking the lake, plus the old favorites 'Marketplace' and 'Westside'. We will keep you updated via our RSS feed during this construction period, untill its completion in early 2016. But for now please read on and feel the excitement of what use to be a fun night out. Downtown Disney Marketplace & Westside are still open. Also, don't forget Universals CityWalk for a great night out.

Wine and dine in Disneys Pleasure Island at the popular Irish pub & restaurant Raglan Road, and afterwards pop into the Comedy Warehouse to laugh a couple of hours away before you boogie down to the night clubs.

If you fancy a 30's style evening, we've been told The Adventures Club is quite a good night of fun, split into four different rooms full of entertainment.

BUT...as from January 1st 2007 the age limit is 21 to enter all the night clubs in Pleasure Island, and both the Adventures Club and Comedy Warehouse, all under 18's must be with an adult. This is a shame because as you can see from the photo above, our youngest son was with us at 8TRAX over the Christmas period and we had a great time.

So, please remember this when you venture out with the under 18s in your family... personally this is where we think Universal's CityWalk has the upper hand for all the family to enjoy around the Orlando area.

Welcome to Downtown Disneys Pleasure Island!

Our Pleasure Island Thoughts

From a personal point of view we found the island very singles/couples orientated, which lets face it, is what Disney is looking for and what many couples are looking for to save the 10 mile drive up to the Universals CityWalk venues...plus this keeps the Disney resort visitors within the Disney catchment area of Orlando.

disneys-pleasure-island-orlando-floridaBUT... here's that but again...even with small children you can always visit around the Island to other venues like Westside and the Downtown Disney Marketplace areas, which offer some fantastic entertainment.

If you want to venture out around the area, not to far away if you have transport is Old Town Kissimmee which might suit you, family and friends. But, if the island is what you are looking for then go for it and have a brilliant time... remember you will be restricted if you have young children.

Here's a word of warning from my dear wife...be careful in the toilet areas, things come away in your hands...personally I blame the vodka!!!!

Just like your local paperboy
