That is sad to see. I first saw Pleasure Island in 1992 - had a pretty good time there. For a section that is supposed to be done by 2011, seems like there is some work to be done. I read the faq on their site to see if there was any info and saw this.."We're also currently considering a number of other unique concepts from around the globe." That sounds promising. Hope they take a look at Sega Republic in Dubai.
Some of the former Planet Hollywood gift shop and soon to be Vinylmation Store
Some of the construction walls that have changed shape and expanded over the last few weeks.
Still getting used to the new forum set up, so this might post a bit fugly. Here are some pics from last night off my Blackberry of the construction walls around Lego Imagination Center and the upcoming Vinylmation store down on West Side section of DTD.
A new store is joining the unique collection of shopping and dining experiences in the Downtown Disney Area with the opening of D Street, where urban inspired product “intersects” with a Disney creative edge.
D Street, will be located in the Downtown Disney West Side and showcase a mix of products for both men and women. Items include cutting-edge apparel, pop culture novelties, Vinylmation figures and collectibles, artwork, handbags, accessories, jewelry and more. The store will have a raw, unfinished industrial look, an provide a great venue to showcase Disney art created by local artists.
Product lines will feature vintage looks from Disney Couture and urban styles inspired by the surf and skate lifestyle. Vintage apparel includes artwork from classic Disney attractions and characters. D Street will also showcase jewelry designers Tarina Tarantino and Classic Hardware, and fashion labels Mighty Fine and Harajuku Lovers.
The new urban-style location will also pave the way for everything in Vinylmation figures. D Street will become the flagship stores for Vinylmation figures, and become the platform to showcase the latest releases from the various collections, including the Park Series, Urban Series, Holiday Series, Cutesters and more. Designed by the creative talents from our Disney Design Group, Disney’s Vinylmation figures take on a whole new meaning in the world of collectibles. These 3″ and 9″ figures are often designed to represent icons, attractions and characters from Disney Parks & Resorts or have more of street feel with their urban-inspired looks.
The official Walt Disney World twitter account has also confirmed that Downtown Disney will get a Ridemakerz store and 3-D technology for the AMC Pleasure Island theaters.
I'm really bummed that Virgin Megastores is closed! I never knew that - How long has it been closed for? I loved looking around in there. Looking forward to shopping in that new Disney store, I love Disney Couture.
^ The Virgin MegaStore has been closed for about a year now, maybe longer. The entire chain has closed, and the last one to cease operations, which was the New York City location, closed in the beginning of June last year. I used to love going in there, because they always had really good deals on cds.
It's kind of sad seeing the shells of buildings, with nothing going on relating to contstruction. The whole of Pleasure Island should be revamped as quickly as possible, IMO, lest Universal's CityWalk continue to leech on all of Orlando's nightlife-enjoying crowd.
Nope, your eyes are not deceiving you…that’s a light cycle from the Tron universe on our “highway in the sky.” And today, we’re sharing a first look at the attention-grabbing art coming to the Walt Disney World Resort.
The transformed trains will be visible on the Epcot monorail line as early as this month. And if you look close, you’ll notice that the design of the futuristic motorcycle-like vehicles from the upcoming film Tron: Legacy also includes walls of trailing colored light.
Tron: Legacy is a 3D high-tech adventure set in a digital world that’s unlike anything ever captured on the big screen. The film is scheduled to hit theaters on December 17. But there will be more updates to come before then so keep checking the Disney Parks Blog for the latest.
