PI is closing. Sad day.

Yep, it's true. If you didn't already know (which is doubtful), next Saturday, September 27, 2008, all six clubs on Pleasure Island at Downtown Disney will be closing.

Sad day.

Mind you, I'm not one of those "PI-aholics', but still. The Island has been a part of my life for almost a year now and has also been around for as long as I can remember. It has changed a lot since I first saw it, but still features fun, excitement, humor, and adventure every night.

It's closing comes after an announcement from Downtown Disney Vice President, Kevin Lansberry, in June. The overhaul will be bringing in new shops and restaurants, all designed to target a more "family-friendly" audience.

I do understand some of the reasons behind the changes and am actually sort of excited. The new T-Rex restaurant does look pretty cool! We have to remember that change is always hard, but without it, nothing new could ever come into being.

True, I will dearly miss Mannequins, The Adventurers Club, and Comedy Warehouse (the three clubs that I frequent most often), but at least I will always have my memories of them - guess that's what's important. It would be great if The Adventurers Club and Comedy Warehouse stayed on the Island, as they would probably still fit into the new atmosphere that is being created. But, it doesn't look like that will be happening.

So, off I go for another fun evening on the Island... PI, you will be missed.
