Downtown Disney - Pleasure Island

I have very little personal experience with Pleasure Island. The shops are similar to the ones you'll find elsewhere in WDW, but the clubs, of course, are the main attraction here. The Comedy Club and the Adventurer's Club are of the most interest to me personally, and I've heard that both are excellent. I suppose you have to pick which places interest you personally, though.

Pleasure Island is an excellent reason to use Disney's transportation....Drink all you want at the clubs, but let Disney's bus drivers take you back to your resort to sleep off the hangover. Don't drink and drive.

Rick Luce, a MousePlanet reader, shared this with me, "When people write with Pleasure Island questions in the future, I invite you to direct them to my Yahoo club for Pleasure Island enthusiasts. Chances are that someone there will either know the answer or be able to find out!"

Admission:

There is an admission price of $21 after 7:00p.m. (there is no "children's price"), but admission for the next five consecutive nights can be added on for an additional $5.00.  An annual pass is available for $58.25 (including tax). Admission to the Island is included in the Premium Annual Pass, the Ultimate Park Hopper Pass, and is a "plus" option you can exercise with the Park Hopper Plus Pass. 

In any case, you have to pay extra for your drinks and food all night, of course.  Folks under 18 are not admitted without a parent.   Florida's drinking age is 21, and is strictly enforced at Pleasure Island.

Clubs (most serve food as well as beverages)

8Trax

Disco lives...got your bell bottoms, platforms, and tie-die in the dresser drawer? Please... leave it there, but enjoy the club anyway if you want.

Adventurers Club

This is probably Pleasure Island's most unique place. The Adventurer's Club is supposed to be a Gentleman's club from years ago. Weird and wild events take place on a regular basis in the library...

BET Soundstage

This relatively new club is PI's home for hip-hop.

Comedy Warehouse

Several shows per night are held at this club, featuring Improv Comedy.  Each one is unique (thus it's called "impov") and the club is very highly regarded.

Hub Video Stage

Live bands perform nightly out here.

Mannequins Dance Palace

Contemporary music and modern lighting effects are this club's main attractions.   The club's lighting and sound systems are tops.  (Must be 21 to enter this club.)

Pleasure Island Jazz Company

Reminiscent of pre-World War II jazz clubs.  If you're into jazz or blues, this is the place for you.

Rock and Roll Beach Club

Live bands and DJs play tried and true Rock & Roll.

Waterfront Stage

Live bands and DJs perform when the crowds warrant the overflow.

West End Stage

Live performances by top artists are held here nightly. This is the place where the nightly New Year's Eve parties take place...

Motion

Formerly the Wildhorse Saloon and the Fireworks Factory before that, this club is a top 40s and alternative club.

Shops

Avigator's Supply

Casual clothing.

Changing Attitudes

Need a pair of pre-ripped jeans?  Here's the place to go.

DTV

Character merchandise themed in a weak MTV take off.

Island Depot

Pleasure Island logo merchandise.

Music Legends

Music industry memorabilia, collectibles, t-shirts.

Reel Finds

Film and entertainment  industry memorabilia, collectibles, t-shirts.

Suspended Animation

Animation cels and the like.

Superstar Studios

Kareoke with a twist, you get to MAKE a video or recording and keep it (for a price, of course).
