Pleasure Island, Orlando
the adventurers club is an oasis of calm in the noisy disco atmosphere of pleasure island. this bar caters to an older visitor to pleasure island. an update the adventurers club is now closed and soon will be demolished. in the near future disney plans to up grade the pleasure island complex
Soon as you get to pleasure island goto one of the machines their and purchase a three day pass for $18 dollars, this allows you access to all the bars and clubs for free and works out much better than paying for the locations seperately.
However i was not impressed by any of the clubs or bars here and I heard that City walk was kind of better. Although I did not choose to check them out as I decided that it would be better if we went to Orland Downtown itself and went out there. This turned out to be the best choice as there are loads more bars/clubs and also a much more of a local crowd without the commerical rubbish.
WE went to Taboo which was a converted theatre, okay if you like the down n dirty RnB type place but the crowd was bit ***. Dragon club was much better, the place was quite small in size but the crowd was better, the staff and security very polite and the barmaids! WOW
Dress Code: Pleasure island and city walk clubs require pretty much no dress code. A shirt would be too much here so stick with jeans and tshirts!
Orland downtown depending on the place you choose is not so bad either, for somewhere like taboo its pretty casual but Dragon club is bit better.

This is Disney's version of "Whose Line is It Anyways?", which was surprisingly goofy and fun. The cast members were trying hard to maintain the "Clean" in good, clean, fun, but it was still clever and appealing even to the adult audience. The show combines physical comedy, slap stick, singing, and dancing. It was a pretty great night that my whole family enjoyed (we are all above 25, but I think some young'ins can get in).
Dress Code: Casual is king here. Break out your favorite Mickey Mouse shirt if you'd like.
One of the best, and funniest, people watching places I've been too. Started to write off Pleasure Island, as I'm not that into 'Clubbin' anymore, and I was traveling solo so the dance opportunities were gonna be slim....but stumbled upon The Adventurer's Club. And I'm glad I did. Think interactive dinner theater, but without the dinner.......Just the bar. If you wander in and don't stay for a while you won't get the concept. Settle in, grab a libation, and stay for a while. Thats the only way you're gonna get the jokes, and enjoy the evening.
Pleasure Island is a great spot to hop from one to another place.
Different styles of music and fun can be selected.
I did enjoy the Comedy Warehouse best.
If you aren’t a native English speaker, make sure you understand the language well, otherwise you will miss most of the hilarious jokes.
Dress Code: none
Pleasure Island is an adults only nightlife option if you are straned at Disney. It's not bad, as there is something for everyone from comedy clubs to live music to 70's clubs and everything in between. It is pricey, but I suppose if you don't want to venture out to the true Orlando, this is a fun night.
Dress Code: it is 80% tourist so everything goes, but for the love of God, have some pride and try to look semi nice. (it amazes me with what people wear for a night out)
Ok. You paid for getting in Pleasure Island and having the great pleasure of enjoying Mary's performance. You can go there as many times as you want Every single time will be different. Provided the f**king girl from Wisconsin do not pass her WOW-phrase to friends and once again we have to struggle with the “Rather to say nothing and have people think you are stupid than say something and prove it".
But after the theather youcan choose between three-four-five? dancing places that could be packed as hell during summer timer but they are empty as heaven in
winter. At least Sunday nights.
This is one of them. The floor rotates and the speed is enough to make the centrifugal forces to help you broken your teeth. So be careful or at least buy a dental insurance. The music was something like...no idea.
Dress Code: Ok. ok. What can i do recommend. Girls is up to you. No pants is ok with me!!!
Mary is Hexepatty's sister. if you haver ever laughed with my Patty adventures in cardio-Brazil or anyother spot inthe galaxy then be prepared because Mary is a gunmachine. She does theather. She and her crew bring laughs and they even can produce a whole situation from phrases like:
"“Rather say nothing and have people think you are stupid than say something and prove it". Ooops!!! RED ALERT White House"""
Dress Code: Nudism was accepted in the show of 1 am but it was coooooold!!!!!
Well, there's lots of different types of "clubs" here... comedy clubs, 8 Trax (70's and 80's themed), a rock and roll club, a BET club, and a couple of other dance clubs...
I only did the comedy club. It was kinda funny.
The one thing about downtown Disney is that they do a New Year's countdown every single night. that might be cool on New Year's.... i didn't really get it though.
Maybe if you're a bored parent looking for a night out this would be cool??? There's lots of alcohol too, that might help. :-)
Pleasure Island (PI) is disney's attempt to get your after hours money. And it succeeds because it offers a good thing. One cover charge (about $20 last time I was there in 2004) for about 10 different themed bars and night clubs. One club, Mannequin's, has the largest revolving dance floor in America... which incidentally is not all that huge. The Beach Club has live music of the Pop Variety. For something different visit the Comedy Club for some Improv.
But choose your night wisely. Disney employees get in free on Thursday nights (disney pay day) so expect a large crowd of college kids from the disney college program. Drink prices also go up on Thursday and Friday. But if you don't want to be alone on the dance floor these might be your nights to go, b/c it can be somewhat dead other nights.
Dress Code: No dress code, but most dress to semi-impress depending on their agenda. Florida club gear. Lots of tropical shirts, and tight black numbers.
Walt Disney Worlds' Pleasure Island.
Pleasure Island is the perfect night spot, there are at least seven clubs ranging from:
Comedy Warehouse-speaks for itself
8Trax-very fluorescent plays 70's and 80's disco
Neon Armadillo-live country music and line dancing
Pleasure sland Jazz Company-live jazz music
Rock and Roll Beach Club-rock and roll music
Adventurers Club-Audience Participation from the 1930's
Mannequins-Over 21's only, upto date music on a revolving dance floor and cocktail mixing competitions.
There are several shops and places to eat and is the venue for Planet Hollywood (see my restaurant tips).
At midnight the main square is the place to be where every night there is a New Years Eve party with a live band on the West End Stage. You will hear music all around Pleasure Island as there is a DJ playing to those who are not in the clubs, so you can dance in the streets if you so wish. There is also a multiplex cinema and various street entertainers walking around to keep you amused.
Dress Code: Ranges from t-shirts and shorts to smart casual, depending on which club you want to go in.
There is something for everyone - Rock, Jazz, Country, Pop, 80s music (retro)...we had a ball hopping from one place to another!
I happen to like Country Music (which is so strange for a city girl) and while we visited Pleasure Island we spent some time at..The Wild Horse Saloon.. May 1999 and during that time Trick Pony was playing there. They rocked! Of course, they became a huge hit after that, at least on country radio! So you never know who may be playing and who will become a breakout star! Check it out!! No square dancing or line dancing necessary!!! I just kicked backa few cocktails withmy husband and listened to some great country music.
We actually went club hopping and went from country to jazz (my hubby's favorite), pop and the 80s club. We had fun there! Lots of dancing...Boy George never sounded so good! :) We had a blast!
Dress Code: Anything cool and funky!
Pleasure Island is a section of downtown Disney that is known for its plethora of clubs, bars, concerts, shops, and comedy clubs. You need a special ticket to gain access to most of the places, but just one ticket will get you into most. There's a huge stage in the middle where there's live music every night. Also, PI has a nightly "new year's" celebration where at midnight, they have a small firework display and everyone pretends its new year's all over again! It's kinda funny.....
Dress Code: Most places are pretty lax about the dress code since many people go to Disney World and may decide to go straight into PI for the evening.
