A Final Adventure

On September 27th, the Adventurers Club on Pleasure Island (along with the rest of the island) at Walt Disney World, Orlando, closed. It was truly the end of an era. In my humble opinion, the Adventurers Club, an interactive theatre experience for Disney’s adult guests, was one of the best attractions and the highlight of any visit to the resort. That unfortunately ended a week ago.

The Bride and I got the opportunity for a final visit to the Club on our last trip to Disney. We got to the Club on Saturday the 13th, and it was packed, wall-to-wall people also there for a last chance to visit and interact with the Adventurers. It should be noted, both here and by the powers that be at Disney that have closed this club, that there was standing room only, and that every one of those people paid a highly unreasonable price (about thirty bucks) just to get in the door. If anything, that should tell them how much the AC is loved and cherished by those who were hip to its existence.

We managed to see three of the library shows that night. I’m so glad we got one last chance to join in on the fun. It was so worth it. And the attitude of the actors was upbeat. To quote Club President Pamilia Perkins, “We’re not sad it’s over, we’re happy it happened.”

Please, Disney, rethink this decision, and please reopen the Adventurers Club at another location. It’s one of the best things about any trip to your parks.
