||Disney's brand of Adult Nightlife,
mostly night clubs, where every night is New-Year's Eve. Entrance
fee charged during evening, guests must be over 18 to enter
night clubs. Alcohol available to over 21s (proof of ID required).
Time required - 1 Evening/Night
Pleasure Island, located in the Downtown
Disney area is Disney's own brand of nightlife for adults
only, and is a complex of bars, dance halls and night clubs, designed
to resemble a renovated old rundown harbour port.
Access to Pleasure Island is free during the day, and any of
the restaurants can be accessed for free. The nightclubs can only
be accessed with a ticket, though the 5-Day World Hopper pass
includes access to all of the Pleasure Island night clubs, most
of which open from early evening until early morning.
Note that in order to access to many of the attractions guests
must be over the age of 18. Also it is illegal to buy alcohol
in Florida below the age of 21, and proof of identity is often
requested (passport etc).
The dance clubs vary from the Mannequins Dance Palace with it's
rotating dance floor, The Rock and Roll Beach Club, The Neon Armadillo
with it's country music theme and 8-Trax with a distinct 70's
The Comedy Warehouse features live shows from well known as well
as hopeful stand-up comedians, and the outdoor West End Stage
hosts live shows and gigs from some very well known bands.
Pleasure Island also houses The
Adventurers Club, a not to be missed continuous show housed
in a building reminiscent of the Victorian explorers clubs.
The shops are similar to the ones you'll find elsewhere in WDW,
but the clubs, of course, are the main attraction here.
Pleasure Island is an excellent reason to use Disney's transportation....Drink
all you want at the clubs, but let Disney's bus drivers take you
back to your resort to sleep off the hangover. Don't drink and
Contemporary music and modern lighting effects are this club's
This is probably Pleasure Island's most unique place. The Adventurer's
Club is supposed to be a Gentleman's club from years ago. Weird
and wild events take place on a regular basis in the library...
Reminiscent of pre-World War II jazz clubs.
Rock and Roll Beach Club
Live bands relive the Beach Boys era.
Several shows per night are held at this club, featuring Improv
Disco lives...got your bell bottoms, platforms, and tie-die
in the dresser drawer? Please...leave it there, but enjoy the
club anyway if you want.
West End Stage
Live bands perform nightly out here. This is the place where
the nightly block parties take place...
