On this episode, we reminisce about Pleasure Island: “fun for all and all for fun!” This is part 2 of a two-part series. Be sure to check out MOW #255 for the first half of this discussion.

Pleasure Island was a place where adults can go to be adults and still remain within the ‘bubble.’ It was a sprawling metroplex of nightclubs, bars, restaurants, adventure, comedy, and a New Year’s Eve celebration every night. We lived through it and perhaps even grew up in it. We hope to give you a unique take on the history of this place through the extensive research conducted and stories from our own personal experience.

Who has experienced Pleasure Island? We would love to hear your stories. Let us know at show@magicourway.com. Your opinions are always welcome on our show. Seriously, every opinion is welcome.

On this episode, Eli asks whether or not Expedition Everest should be rethemed to an IP attraction? This conversation comes on the heels of the Disney-fan firestorm that was created when Bob Iger’s Barron’s article was released. To summarize the part of the article that caused the Disney-fan discomfort, it is stated that interest from a potential audience is higher with an IP-based attraction rather than a nondescript coaster based on India somewhere. The article has since been edited to remove any indication of that statement.

In addition, we go into the mailbag and see what our listeners want to say today.
