Birthday 2010!

10 Jun

It was awesome! Benihana was very yummy (though maybe not as good as Kobe) and Pat O’Briens at City Walk was a good time! But most of all the people were awesome. Thanks to everyone who came out or texted me or hit me up on Facebook.

Here is the official Benihana photo:

BK Whopper Bar

14 Apr

Recently opened at Universal Studios Florida’s City Walk is a new “food court” located upstairs, above the theater. Located in this “food court” is a new Panda Express, Moe’s Southwest Grill and a BK Burger Bar. The Panda Express and Moe’s are identical in menu and setup to their normal non-theme park brethren. The BK Burger Bar is different and new. It isn’t just a Burger King and it is the first of its kind!

Sign on the soda dispensers.

Pleasure Island Closing!

28 Jun

I don’t normally post twice in one day but this is breaking news and I just learned about it!!!!

A sad day is coming. Disney has announced that all of the clubs at Pleasure Island will close in September. Disney already has a FAQ up here. Ever since Disney added the West Side shopping district Pleasure Island was in the way. Two family friendly areas separated by a large “Adults Only” area wasn’t going to work. We thought we saw the solution when Disney opened Pleasure Island’s pathways and added a couple restaurants and kiosks to service the families during the day, but keeping the clubs pumping after dark.

Unfortunately, we had only seen the beginning. Disney is going to “re-imagine” the area with family friendly shopping and dining options. Meaning it will be JUST like the other two parts of Downtown Disney. I really think that Disney is making a mistake. I believe that Pleasure Island catered to a different type of crowd and by eliminating all the clubs, these tourists and locals will go elsewhere. Where will they go? The newer, better and soon to be only game in town. City Walk at Universal.

Why would Disney choose to push customers away to its biggest competitor? Doesn’t make business sense to me…

There is another article about it from the Orlando Sentinel here. Your last chance to dance on the spinning dance floor at Mannequins or to hear some stand-up at The Comedy Club is September 27th.
