    Definitely sounds good, I'm glad they're finally giving DTD some love and attention, not too sure on the name though.

    The buildings look nice. Too bad they'll be lazily filled with 3rd party companies, and not Disney theming.

    Fail.

    Wow talk about quickening the pace of the death of such a creative and cool area.

    It sucks that PI is gone, but let's face it... it's a ghost town now. This certainly looks like it will bring SOME life back to the area.

    Its only a ghost town because WDW management made it so. Raglan Road is a great bar/pub/restaurant. I ate at Paradiso a couple of weeks ago and let me tell you it was FANTASTIC! BUUUUUT the nightclubs here especially Mannequins were innovative and different and gave Disney a somewhat of adult feel and a place for adults to get away for the night. Now if you want a club you have to go to City Walk, which isn't so bad either because they have great places too.

    Really? I thought it was terribly bland.

    The closure of the Adventurers Club will always be one of WDW's biggest mistakes. That place was quintessential Disney.

    We ate the chips and salsa, the fried mac and cheese (which were freaking awesome) and we ordered the burrito on the menu which was chicken and veggies inside with rice and beans on the side. I noticed that our burrito plate had A LOT more food than other plates especially the churrasco dish. So it might be dependant on what you ordered, but to us it was great.

    It's nice to see them at least doing something with the area. It looks like it has the potential to be a pretty nice place to walk around and enjoy. :shrug:

    With their dropping attendance and lack in earnings they should of focused on revamping the idea of Pleasure Island with unique clubs and attractions, not destroying it and adding more of what the rest of Downtown Disney has.

    They just turned it all into a hipster mall.

    Sounds great. But first, I need to figure out how to pronounce "Hyperion"...

    I'm glad they're doing something, but it just doesn't have the same magic that Pleasure Island did, what with its back story and all. This just sounds like a Disney strip mall.
    I am curious what "Concession Stand of the Future" is though.

    May you explain what the back story was??
    It was featured on Wesh 2 News. I think they watch this site, with all the interviews and such.

    Awkward name aside, this sounds pretty awesome in my opinion. Glad to see them going for an entire new concept instead of just randomly opening a new shop or restaurant here or there.

    Personally, I'm particularly excited to see this new AMC theater. The current theater has gotten pretty run down over the last few years (and smells really odd :lol:).

    Best part: Fork & Screen Theater. Wurd.
