    This item is published yesterday on Screamscape.com:


    "Screamscape sources have sent in some information about what we might
    see during Pleasure Island's last nights. First off the Fireworks will
    return to PI for a special finale show on the 27th, though we've heard
    there is also a slight chance it could also happen on the 26th. We
    will see performances by Frankie and the West End Boys and Hip Kitty,
    some off-season special shows in the Adventure's Club (Halloween &
    Christmas themed) plus we've heard that the AC's night will end with a
    very special show where the story may give away a reason as to why the
    club is closing. I've also heard that there may be some kind of
    special show over at the Comedy Warehouse as well. Meanwhile look for
    lots of extra characters in the streets and special souvenir merchandise.
    After that… turn off the lights on the way out because the party is
    over… unless you are a member of one of a few special private groups
    who have already booked the various venues (yes, Adventure's Club too)
    for special private functions. Apparently the special event types
    still have some events scheduled for these locations through to Jan,
    1st 2009. After that… crews will move in to start removing anything of
    value and prepare the site buildings for new owners or for demolition.
    As for the buildings… we've heard that suits have been spotted
    walking the island with rolled blueprints lately, looking over the
    current BET, Adventure Club, Beach Club and Motion buildings. As for
    the buildings on the other side of the street (8-Trax, Mannequins)
    we've heard that there may be no set plans for those sights yet, which
    could possibly mean they could have a date with a wrecking ball in
    order to build up something entirely new."
    Next trip - Bali! (March 2015)

    Frankie and the West End Boys. We used to love going to PI for a little while in the early part of the evening and listening to them perform on the old West End Stage.

    I sure hope Disney knows what it is doing with this one. :sigh;

    You do know it's going to be mobbed, right? There is a HUGE contingent of CMs who are coming out to support their colleagues on the last night. Plus, the closing of the AC is such an unpopular thing that there has already been problems with security and guests, so be prepared for a huge mob, and the potential for some rather undisney like behaviors.

    We were chatting about that the other night, Tink. The mobbed part I expected, though I admit I hadn't thought much about the "undisneylike" behavior. Our plan is to get there early, barring that...we'll just have to be flexible...if it's too much, as much as I'd like to stay, I'm not willing to be part of a mob scene...

    Thanks for the heads up.
