Pleasure Island Undergoes Major Renovations

Disney's Pleasure Island was once a nightlife location for grown-ups looking to dance the night away. The Island is currently under rehab to become a place where parents and children can also feel comfortable.
"We're going away from the traditional, adult-only nightclub environment to an environment where we can appeal to all groups, including adults," said Djuan Rivers, vice president for Downtown Disney. She went on to say; "The Company is not giving up on adult-oriented nightlife, or the current clubs, such as the Adventurers Club, the BET SoundStage or Mannequins Dance Palace. Partiers are still welcome." The goal is to merge Pleasure Island more with Marketplace and the West Side.

Disney to Offer Two Versions of Mission: Space

Beginning this summer guests will have two choices when riding Epcot's Mission: Space. Visitors can either go on the current attraction or a new version which will provide a milder no-spin experience. In the new version, the spinning centrifuge will be turned off for guests who are subject to motion sickness or have other health issues. Signs will be posted in the queue area outlining the differences between the two rides. "By offering a second adventure, we hope to broaden the appeal of "Mission: Space" and enable even more guests to experience the attraction," said Al Weiss, president of Walt Disney World Resort.
