Pleasure Island

Dancing and Entertainment

By

Pleasure Island will be closing September 27, 2008.

Booming beats and smooth grooves feed the need for new sensations at Motion and Mannequins Dance Palace, two of the hottest hot spots at Downtown Disney Pleasure Island, where bold new sights and exciting new sounds await guests at Walt Disney World Resort.

Adventurers Club - There is not a club in the world quite like this one. Guests are greeted at the door by a butler as they enter a tavern filled with surprises around every corner. The mask room features walls of masks -- some with slowly turning eyes, others with sharp wits and eloquent verbalization. In the Main Salon, there are nightly debates between the club "fixtures" such as the "Colonel," "Babylonia" and the "Yakoose." A beheaded adventurer speaks out in the Treasure Room, and in the Library the flavor is cabaret as "great adventurers" break into song and zany tales.

BET SoundStage Club - The best in urban contemporary music and entertainment. This new club owned by BET Holdings, Inc. features R&B and hip-hop music, a multimedia display of videos and music, plus American-style appetizers.

The Comedy Warehouse - Just a "hip-hop away" from BET Soundstage Club where the tin roof rattles with laughter. The Comedy Warehouse is the stage for some of the best comics working today. Nightly, the "Who, What & Warehouse" Improv Company players deliver some of the best improvisational comedy anywhere -- it's never the same show twice.

8Trax - The '70s -- a decade of incredible change -- and music reflective of the times. Slip back to an era when beanbag chairs decorated apartments and tie-dyed clothes decorated bodies. The '70s unfold in the club known as 8Trax. Lava lamps to mirror balls -- the mood of the seventies is here, and so is the sound. From disco to recorded music from groups and artists like the Village People, Donna Summer, Bee Gees, Doobie Brothers, Tavares and many others.

Mannequins Dance Palace - Here, it's the dance floor and light show that sets the standard for this award-winning club. The huge floor actually spins as dancers gyrate to booming sounds. The rotation of the round floor, like the music and lights, moves at different speeds. The RPMs, or "beats per minute," really get turned up when the Island Explosion Dancers make nightly appearances. Guests enter Mannequins from a third floor elevator that opens to catwalks, stage rigging and enough actual mannequins to give the illusion of a giant theatrical warehouse.

Rock 'n Roll Beach Club - Rock 'n roll that plays to the beats of the past and the present, from the '60s to the '90s, with three levels of entertainment, a large dance floor and top bands nightly.

Motion - Bodies are always in motion at this two-story temple of groove. A DJ spins the hottest chart hits nightly, backed by a huge video screen, pulsing speakers and swirling lights.
