Pleasure Island may get makeover

Don’t be surprised if the new year brings some changes to Disney’s Pleasure Island.
I’m hearing Mouse officials are reviewing the nighttime entertainment complex with the idea of some updates. Given the competition from places like Universal’s CityWalk, that’s understandable.
Among the things under consideration, I’m told, is opening a bowling alley and dropping the every-night-is-New-Year’s-Eve theme, which has been around since 1990.
And, for certain, the West End stage on the Island, where a deejay is often found, is going away to make entering the island easier.
Earlier this year, Disney got rid of the admission charge to the Island, replacing the $20.50 gate charge with individual covers at the clubs.
